I have setup add/update subscriber to Mailchimp list from facebook leads. But when I then add zap to send campaign to new subscriber it gives me the empty fields error (do this) but my fields have been populated in the add/update subscriber list? Im not sure if it is doing it or not ...

Sorry you’re having trouble here. Would it be possible to share a screenshot of your issue - So we can see the error more clearly?
Hey Shane, it looks like you can’t add to this campaign because the campaign is set to “sent” - Try with a campaign that has a different setting
This is set within Mailchimp. The campaign will be marked with a category.
In the case above, the error message is telling you that you can’t add new people to a campaign after it has been sent.
Ok I understand, better to send campaign when all leads have been collected instead of during. There is no setting to change that in Mailchimp unfortunately. Will look at a autoresponderthere. Thanks for your help
Screenshot attached, does every new lead that signs up now get the campaign?
On your platform? Where would I find that setting?
No problem! :D
Yep, the Send Campaign action will send a the campaign to the whole list, so you’ll only want to do that once and you can only do it with a campaign that hasn’t yet been sent.
If you want to send people a welcome email when they sign up, you might want to look into MailChimp’s automations, for example they allow you to send an email as soon as someone is added to a list. So you could use a Zap to add the person as a contact in MailChimp and then MailChimp will handle sending them an email.
Here’s MailChimp’s guide to automation
