SendGrid Export Contacts

This Destination enables you to sync your Grouparoo Records as Contacts in SendGrid.

Companies use Grouparoo to keep their SendGrid Contacts up-to-date in order to communicate with customers and manage client relations.

To create a Destination, you make choices about what data to sync.

Sync Modes

  • Sync: Add, update, and remove SendGrid Contacts as needed.This option looks for new records, changes to existing records, and deletions.
  • Additive: Add and update SendGrid Contacts as needed, but do not remove anybody. This option looks for new Contacts to add to SendGrid and changes to existing SendGrid Contacts, but does not keep track of deletions.
  • Enrich: Only update those Contacts that already exist in SendGrid. Do not add or remove Contacts. This option will only update existing Contacts in SendGrid.

Destination Options

Some types of Destinations require further clarification about how data should sync. In the case of Pipedrive, there are no further Options to configure before moving on to mapping Record Data.

Record Data

SendGrid’s Contact Fields can be either Reserved Fields or Custom Fields from a form. This helps companies gather helpful information about clients and prospects.
