MailChimp account integration

You can integrate your MailChimp email account directly with Ruzuku. Students who enroll in your courses will be automatically added to your MailChimp email list.

Step 1: Link your MailChimp account to Ruzuku

  1. Click on your name at the top of the page.
  2. Click on Integrations.
  3. Click on MailChimp.
  4. To work with your MailChimp account, we need to know your MailChimp API key and which list you would like to use.

  5. Please follow these steps:
    1. If you have not already done so, create a mailing list in MailChimp for your Ruzuku courses. You will use just one list for all courses. Students will automatically be tagged by the course they are enrolled in on your list.
      • Important: When creating the signup form for your list, please be sure that only the email address and first name fields are required. All other fields must be optional for the integration to work. Information on signup forms can be found in MailChimp's knowledge base.
    2. Go to your MailChimp Dashboard, click on your account name and then Account Settings. Click Extras > API Keys.
    3. Under Your API keys, click "Create A Key." A new key will be generated with today’s date and time. Copy the key exactly as it appears in MailChimp and paste it into Ruzuku. Be sure there are no leading blank spaces, or blank spaces at the end of the Key.

Step 2: Link specific courses to your MailChimp list

In each course you've created, if you'd like to add enrolled students to your MailChimp mailing list:

  1. Go to Settings (in the course editor) for each course that you'd like to link to your MailChimp list.
  2. Select the "On" check box for "Allow new users to sign up for your MailChimp mailing list."
  3. You're all set!

If you have chosen a double opt-in in your MailChimp settings, then when participants enroll in your course, they'll be sent an email subscription confirmation from MailChimp and, upon confirmation, will be added to your MailChimp list.

If you have a single opt-in setting in your MailChimp account, then students will simply be added to your list without a subscription confirmation.
