A friend told me about Sendy a few days ago. We love its simplicity and the fact that it's not cluttered with useless features.
Here is the workflow in which we're trying to use Sendy :
Our database contains all kinds of user details (name, email, birthday etc.. )
The plan is to duplicate these details from the website's database and communicate them to Sendy's database/mailing list on a regular basis (daily or twice a day).
The goal is for Sendy to send regular newsletter campaigns and reminders/autoresponders on particular events (birthdays, a reminder x days before the end of their subscription period etc..)
Is this doable with Sendy ?
What if a user changes his/her details ? Can sendy send the reminders after the data is edited ?
Thanks a lot
Thanks for your kind feedback.
I suggest utilizing Sendy's API to 'sync' data between your website and Sendy's list. This way, you don't have to manually sync both your website and Sendy on a daily (or twice daily) basis.
For example, when someone changed their birthday on your website/application, it'll call Sendy's 'subscribe' API to change the birthday value. When someone is added to your website's database, subsequently make a 'subscribe' API call to add the user to your desired Sendy's list.
This is the best practice and best way to keep both database current.
I have 2 other applications that does it the same way I've just described. Neither have I ever had to manually "sync" between my application's databases and Sendy's lists.
