I am curious about how I assign a tag to my subscribers when joining my Mailchimp list from a FB leads. I noticed that the 'Choose action Event' called 'Add subscriber to tag' has a notice: "The email adress must already be subscribed to the audience. Or this will fail." But.. How are they supposed to be subscribed already when they just subscribed through my FB Lead?


Then I was wondering if it was because I had to do it in 2 steps. So the first action would be 'Add/update Subscriber' and then I would make another step called 'Add tag to subscriber'.


If this doesn't do the trick, I wouldn't know how to give my new subscribers a tag, when they come from Facebook Leads ads..

Hey @linesvensson_93 you're spot on with your thinking! You will need 2 action steps here. The first should be to "Add/Update Subscriber" and the second to "Add Subscriber to Tag in Mailchimp".

I see you've already started to set this up based on your screenshots. Is everything working as expected or are you running into issues elsewhere? Let us know!
