Ratings and Reviews
Can’t search by name!
This is a somewhat good app. There is on MAJOR issue with it. The app won’t let you search by somoenoe’s name. It’s awesome that you can access your contacts on Mac but only searching by email to add the contact to your list. This seems to be a really important overlooked feture. WHY mailchimp WHY?
Infinite loop when trying to download and use MailChimp Import
Update. I figured out why I was in an infinite loop. The window that lists various software to use to import contacts has the MailChimp import at the bottom. It says to use MailChimp import by downloading from the Apple store. I did this but there is no option given to add my contacts using the MailChimp import. So everytime I tried to create a list in MailChimp I kept ending up back at the window listing the import oftware and MailChimp at the bottom. After going in a loop for an hour or so I finally figured it out. What I needed to do was log out of MailChip. Then open the MailChimp Import. A message came up asking me to allow the software to access my contacts. Then I was able to go to my various mailing lists and select the contacts I wanted to import. It might be a good idea for MailChimp to be able to know when the MailChimp import has been downloaded so it will no longer put you back to the import software list. MailChimp import should automatically open up when the user is working in MailChimp. If the user changes their mind about using MailChimp import there should be an option to select a different one. Once I figured it out it worked great!
Basic importer works well
I created a list of over sixty contacts to export from Apple Contacts. After accessing my credentials from MailChimp, I simply dragged and dropped into the export pane of the app. A few seconds later it was uploaded, and confirmed on the MailChimp web site. My only gripe is that MailChimp Import only transfers the contact's first name, last name and email address. I’d like to import other details from my contact list, like business name, phone number, or whatever, but the app won’t do that. I’d give an extra star if import fields were more flexible.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
