Troubleshooting Tips

  • If the new participant isn't being added to MailerLite, or if they are being added but their unique referral link isn't being synced to MailerLite:
    • Activity logs will denote if a participant was added to MailerLite or if they were failed to be added. (In the case of failure, GrowSurf will re-attempt to add them for 7 days).
