Field Integration Issues - Modern Events Calendar w/Constant Contact

I created a zap that --almost-- works perfectly. But…

Custom fields I create with the Modern Events Calendar (MEC) plugin aren’t available to push to Constant Contact (CC)

Custom fields I create in CC aren’t available as target zap options.

MEC uses a NAME structure and CC uses FIRST NAME / MIDDLE / LAST NAME

So the best I can do is a hack - mush NAME incorrectly into something like MIDDLE and BOOKING EVENT TITLE into another random field like PREFIX NAME. Hence I’ll have to clean up the data later, making the zap kind of pointless.

The goal being that users that register for an event in MEC populate either a particular list or can be segmented later in CC. So minimum success (above a hack) would be populating MEC’s EVENT TITLE into a custom field in CC.

MEC does provide hooks (https://webnus.net/dox/modern-events-calendar/mec-hooks/) so there may be a plugin customization that works outside zapier?

grateful for any insights!

Hi @OrganicHost 

[Technical] Constant Contact custom fields can be accessed via the Constant Contact API, as those are not available via the Constant Contact Zap app integration.

Constant Contact API: https://v3.developer.constantcontact.com/api_reference/index.html#!/Account_Services/retrieveEmailAddresses

In a Zap the Constant Contact API can be leveraged via a Webhooks step: https://zapier.com/apps/webhook/integrations

Nice!

 

Is this something you’d be interested in deploying? My email is mike@organichost.com
