Troubleshooting Tips

  • If the new participant isn't being added to Constant Contact, or if they are being added but their unique referral link isn't being synced to Constant Contact:

    • Activity logs will denote if a participant was added to Constant Contact or if they failed to be added. (In the case of failure, GrowSurf will re-attempt to add them for 7 days).
