Overview

Autopilot integration gives you the medium to send the email addresses of your giveaway participants directly to the Autopilot list.

Before you start

  • You must have an active Autopilot account to use Autopilot integrations.
  • In Autopilot, you must get API Key. Find out more about how to obtain the API Key in this article.
  • In Autopilot, you can create a new list for collecting giveaway emails. But the old lists can also be used for this purpose.
  • Use the Sign up for a newsletter action in case of the Socialman giveaway. The participants who completed this action will only be sent to Autopilot.

It will appear in the Autopilot list within a couple of minutes. Besides that, all those emails recorded in the giveaway earlier before setting up the integration will also be sent to the Autopilot list.
