Create DestinationsLast Updated: 8/1/2020
Now that you've defined Profiles, Profile Properties, and Groups, you can now send your Customer Data to Destinations. Destinations are tools where you want to send your Customer Data so you can take action on your workflows. These Destinations can be Email Marketing tools like Marketo, Sendgrid, or Braze. Destinations can also be data tools like Redshift or Snowflake.
Here's how to send Profiles, Groups, and Profile Properties to Destinations:
1. Add an App
See our guide on how to add your Destination App.
2. Create a Destination
Once you've added the App, you can create a Destination. Click on
Destinations in the left-nav and then click
Add new Destination.
Select the type of App where you want to send Customer Data.
Once you've selected the type of App, the specific questions and settings will vary. Here is Mailchimp, as an example. Mailchimp has Audiences that each have a
listId. You can choose the specific
listId you'll want to set for this Destination.
Now you can define what Groups and what Profile Properties you want to send to your Destination. You can choose to send
All Groups or a specific Group to send. This mapping defines which Profiles, or Who gets sent to the Destination.
Next you can choose which Profile Properties you want to send to your Destination. Usually a Unique Profile Property such as
user id will be required so the Destination knows how to identify Profiles and to keep Profiles separate.
Lastly, you can choose how Group membership shows up in your destination. This mapping lets you decide how Groups are represented in your Destination. Often Groups are shown as Lists, Audiences, or Tags in these Destinations.
You're all set! 🎉 Your Profiles, Profile Properties, and Groups are all synchronized in real-time across your Sources and Destinations. As your customers take actions, Grouparoo will automatically detect changes in your Sources, update Profiles and Groups, and send them to your Destinations.
