tutorial image

This is the page you will be using the manage your existing accounts, or to add new accounts to Bloom. If this is your first time visiting the Accounts tab, you will not see any accounts listed yet. You first need to add one. To get started, click the “New Account” button.

tutorial image

This will bring you to the account creation screen. Here you can choose from the dropdown list the email software that you are using. Once you have selected your account type, some additional settings will appear. These settings are used to verify your account and link it with Bloom. Once your account has been linked, Bloom will be able to use the software’s API to automatically add subscribers to your email list. Depending on the email software you are using, the verification steps will be different. In most cases, you will be asked for an API Key or additional account information. Next we will go over each of the different account types and their verification steps in detail:

ActiveCampaign

When you select ActiveCampaign from the email provider dropdown menu, you will notice that some new fields appear:

Account Name

This can be anything you like, and is merely a reference for you to remember the account by.

Form ID

Form ID’s are optional, but they can used to pull settings from a form created within your AcitveCampaign account in order to enable double opt-in confirmation.

API Key

The API Key is a special code that is given to you by ActiveCampaign that you can use to authenticate your account. This code can be found within your ActiveCampaign.com account dashboard.

API URL

The API URL is a special URL that is assigned to your account by ActiveCampaign. This code can be found just below the API Key in your ActiveCampaign account dashboard.

ActiveCampaign requires an API Key and API URL in order to integrate with Bloom. You can find both the key and url in the API tab of your account settings page. To access your account settings, click on your profile image located on the far-right side of the main navigation toolbar and then click My Settings.

tutorial image

Copy and paste the API Key and API URL into the appropriate fields on the Bloom account creation page. Next click “Authorize.” If your information is correct, your account will be verified and your email lists will appear below the API Settings.
Click “Save & Exit” to finalize the process and add the account to Bloom. Once added, the account and its associated lists will appear in the E-mail Accounts tab of your Bloom settings panel. You can manage or delete this account at any time from within that tab.

You also have the option to use the optional “Form ID” field while authorizing your account. This should be used if you need to enable double opt-in confirmation. To create a new form within your ActiveCampaign account, log in and click on the “Apps” link. Next click the “Add Form” link to create a new form.

tutorial image

There is no need to adjust the form settings, since Bloom only supports the Name and Email fields. Instead, we need to locate the Form ID so that it can be added to your Bloom integration settings. ActiveCampaign doesn’t list this ID unfortunately, but luckily you can find it my looking at the URL in the browser’s address bar. While on the form creation page, look at your URL. It might look something like this: https://elegantthemes.activehosted.com/admin/main.php?action=form_edit&id=31. You should see a number attached to the end of the URL. That’s your form ID! Copy and paste that number into the “Form ID” field in Bloom and click “Authorize.” Now that you have connected Bloom to a specific form, it will use the standard ActiveCampaign work flow, including double opt-in confirmation.
