Troubleshooting Tips

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