MailChimp Data Model & Schema Information

Blendo will now connect to your MailChimp data source. It will sync your historical data and all the future updates into your destination data warehouse. You will get analytics ready tables and syncs that make sure you will get recent and consistent data.

Let’s see:

  1. How Blendo syncs MailChimp data
  2. The tables with MailChimp data that we create in your destination data warehouse

How Blendo syncs MailChimp data

Historical Data

When Blendo first connects to MailChimp Data source, will pull all your historical data.

Sync Schedule

Blendo syncs MailChimp data based on the schedule and frequency you choose. The default setting is every 1 hour but is configurable from inside the app.

Replication Process

The first time Blendo syncs your MailChimp data performs a full replication. Then your MailChimp data is replicated incrementally. Note that Blendo will only read your data.

After you finish the integration with MailChimp, you might see its status as Importing from sourceExporting to the destination, or Completed.

What MailChimp data do I have available?

Blendo creates analytics ready tables with recent and consistent data. Bellow is a diagram of the schema and you may also find a CSV with all the columns and fields in more detail.

MailChimp Integration FAQ

How can I add multiple MailChimp Accounts?

This guide considers you have connected at least one MailChimp data source pipeline setup with Blendo. If you have multiple MailChimp Accounts and you want to connect a second MailChimp pipeline with a different login or table prefix you may do the following:

1. Click Add Source.

Setup Facebook Ads integration - Set the Attribution window

2. Click on MailChimp data source connector

3. In the next screen click on Disconnect. This will not disconnect you from the previously created MailChimp data source pipeline.

4. Continue with the normal authentication for MailChimp with the new account credentials.

5. You can continue with the setup as a new data source and use a new Table prefix or select another Schema.

You can do this as many times you need to add all your other MailChimp accounts.

Note: It would be good practice to rename your Data Source Pipelines for better handling in the case of multiple connectors of the same type.
