Change how long the confirmation link will be valid by selecting a verification time between 6 hours and 3 weeks.

You can also customize the text shown after an email submission on the Confirmation Panel editor.

Mailchimp

Connecting your viral waitlist to MailChimp is straightforward. So you can keep your early users informed on things like your progress, the launch date, special offers, and so on.

Click the "Connect with MailChimp" button.

You'll be redirected to Mailchimp's login page. Use your MailChimp credentials to log in.

Once you are successfully logged in, you'll go back to your integrations page. Great! Tuemilio is now connected to MailChimp. All the email lists on your MailChimp account are displayed.

Now select the one that you need to connect with and click "Connect list".

Awesome! You connected your waiting list to your email list on MailChimp.

If you want to stop adding your subscribers to your MailChimp list, click "Deactivate."

Google Analytics

If you have Google Analytics installed on your site, and you switch on Automatic integration with Google Analytics on your Waitlist > Settings page, Tuemilio will send events to Google Analytics.

Webhooks

A webhook is a flexible connecting tool that lets you integrate with almost anything on the internet. Each time you get a new subscriber, Tuemilio makes a POST request to the URL you specify with the subscriber's information.

Click the "Make test request" if you need to debug or test your endpoint's logic. When everything is on point, click "Activate" to start the connection. Check here the webhook data sent from Tuemilio.

Good job! You connected your list to an endpoint. But why do I need that? Integrate to all available services on Zapier or send a notification to a Telegram conversation, for example.

Grant Access Webhook

You can set Tuemilio to send automatic webhooks to your application for granting access to your subscribers from your app.

  • Set how often you'll give access to your users in days. Set to 1 to grant access to a batch of users every day. Set to 7 for a weekly release.
  • Select the top X subscribers of the list you want to give access to. On the next batch, the following group of subscribers will be granted.
  • Or select how many points a subscriber will need at least to get access.

Here a few examples.

  • For giving access gradually to your launch list, set an interval of 7 days to the top 20 subscribers.
  • For giving automatic access to users that reach more than 5 points. Set an interval of 1 day to subscribers with more than 5 points.

Typeform

Typeform is an excellent tool for doing dynamic surveys. It comes really handy for getting inputs from your users while you are testing your idea.

Let's add a subscriber to a Tuemilio waitlist when a subscriber completes a survey on Typeform. Start by creating a Zap connection from Typeform to Webhooks by Zapier. Select New Entry as a trigger and POST as an action.

Waitlist Integrations

Sign in using your Typeform account. In Edit Options, select a Form entry. In my case, "Customer Survey."

Waitlist Integrations

In Test This Step, pick a sample from your survey entries.

Waitlist Integrations

Make sure you have selected POST.

Waitlist Integrations

In Edit Template, add the Tuemilio API endpoint that collects the email.

https://tuemilio.com/api/v1/lists/{LIST_ID}/emails?api_token=XXXXXXXX

You can find your api_token and LIST_ID here. Remember that for the private API, you need to use the short list ID. You can also check your short LIST_ID by going to Waitlists > {your list} and get it from the URL in the browser. For example https://tuemilio.com/lists/427

In Data, you only need to add the key address and the email field from Typeform as a value.

Waitlist Integrations

Once the setup is done, you can test the webhook by clicking the "Send Test To Webhooks by Zapier" button.

Waitlist Integrations

If everything works fine, you'll see a confirmation message like the one below. Also, you can check now on the Tuemilio dashboard that your email came from Zapier successfully.
