Subscriber Fields

GrowSurf will automatically create these new subscriber fields for your Campaign Monitor lists.
Campaign Monitor has a max limit on the number of custom fields that are allowed per subscriber/list. You can add up to 50 custom fields per list.
Please note that deleting a custom field will also delete any data already stored in that field for all of the subscribers on your list.

Troubleshooting Tips

  • If the new participant isn't being added to Campaign Monitor, or if they are being added but their unique referral link isn't being synced to Campaign Monitor:
    • Activity logs will denote if a participant was added to Campaign Monitor or if they failed to be added. (In the case of failure, GrowSurf will re-attempt to add them for 7 days).
  • If an existing participants information is not being synced within Campaign Monitor (e.g. referral counts, impression counts, etc) this is likely because Campaign Monitor is preventing it and returning an error back to GrowSurf "Subscriber was added too many times too quickly, try again later."
    • The good news is we will continue to retry the sync with a progress backoff until our requests to their API is successful. This means that your participants information in Campaign Monitor will eventually reflect their information within GrowSurf.
