PlusThis Developer Update- August 31, 2018

Hey PlusThis users! We’re excited to share some developer updates and a new tool that are now live inside the PlusThis library.

If you haven’t already heard about our Calendly Connection, it’s a convenient new tool that allows you to import information from Calendly through PlusThis to save directly into your marketing automation software. Our developers have also made some updates that fix background issues with a few of our popular tools including Email Engagement Triggers and Segment Lists. These updates help our more resource-intensive tools run more effectively.

Make sure to watch this developer update with Christiaan and Rick to learn more about these updates and their applications:


What’s New:

  • *New Feature* Calendly Connection : Import registration/cancellation information from Calendly which can save to a new or existing contact
    • Ex: A new contact signs up for a consultation, but cancels. PlusThis will get the contact information saved into a new contact record, which you can then trigger specific follow up for.
    • Read more about the tool here
  • Updates to Email Engagement Triggers and Segment Lists: Fix background issues with these tools to help them run more smoothly with less errors
    • Ex: Run large lists through our tools with a much more reliable process
    • Our developers are currently working on making this same update to our GoToWebinar connection, Zoom Webinar connection, and our Google Sheets Exporter tool.

In the future…

Our developers want to finish off this scheduling series, so they’re currently working on:

  • A GoToMeeting integration
  • Zoom Meeting integration

That’s all for this developer update. Thanks for stopping by! If you have any questions, feel free to reach out.

New Feature: Add to Calendar

We’re happy to announce a new feature that’s now live inside the PlusThis library.

We’ve developed a new tool to help you create add to calendar links with Infusionsoft, Drip, ActiveCampaign, Ontraport and Hubspot.

What’s great about this new tool is that it makes it easy to create add to calendar links that tie to dates inside your CRM. So not only can you create an add to calendar link in the traditional sense that ties to a fixed date, but now you can tie it to dates that are stored in your fields.

For example, maybe you have a mastermind call you do once a month. Or maybe you have a class you run every week.

Here’s How it Works

Pick a date or field with a date to pull from.

This makes it easy to run those one off events like a fundraiser, webinar or training using a fixed date. Or pull in the date from a field for your recurring events.

Fill in your details. Name of the event, start time, duration, and description.

Bonus Tip: Use any merge fields from your CRM to personalize the description further.

Copy the appropriate calendar link and paste it in your email.


And that’s it. You can watch a video demo of how to set one up in more detail below.

One Last Thing!

SuccessCon is down to only 30 tickets before it’s completely sold out. The line up is incredible and there will be no pitching or opt-ins from stage. It’s pure value.

It’s coming up quickly though. The event starts next week on Tuesday March 27th.

We’ll be there sharing some of our own case studies and campaigns from top customers to help you all learn some ways to grow your business. We’re personally excited to have an event that can take what was great about ICON and keep that tradition growing.

But most of all, we’re excited to attend so we can meet and interact with customers like you.

See the incredible lineup of speakers and content here.

Hope to see you there.
