Batch Data Sync FTP synchronization is a file exchange between the customer's system and MailUp, usually in .csv format. This exchange takes place by means of a FTP protocol. (available as sFTP e FTPs as well, on request).
Synchronization modes described in this section are not available by default, but our technical team can set them up and activate them following customers' requests. To have a batch synchronization set up, an active account is required (not a free trial) and technical details have to be agreed with our support team (firstname.lastname@example.org). No extra fee will be charged, except for personalizations, or should a huge amount of space on MailUp FTP servers be required to exchange the data. In order to have a quick quote, please contact our sales department (email@example.com).
Once the synchronization has been set up, it is possible to using the sFTP protocol (port 22).
Once the synchronization has been set up, every time you will upload a file in the common space (on the MailUp FTP space) the automatic file exchange process will be executed (Data Sync Import). On request, you can use your FTP space and decide how often and at what time the automatic file import process will be executed.
You can decide how often and at what time the automatic file exchange export process will be executed (Data Sync Export).
As this synchronization can go in both directions (i.e. from the customer's your system to MailUp and vice versa), it can be set up in one direction only or both, depending on the customer's your needs. Batch
What it is used for
Data Sync synchronization allows to automate the following processes:
- Moving to MailUp the recipients recipient's list is taken from a file provided by the customer and importing it to a MailUp list
- Extracting from MailUp a list of unsubscribers unsubscribes and saving it in a file stored in a repository shared with the customer
- Extracting from MailUp statistics down to the user and to the message level (opens and clicks) and saving them in a file stored in a repository shared with the customer
- Extracting the data at (2) and (3) in one a single file
- Extracting statistics about on SMS (text messages) delivery and saving them in a file stored in a repository shared with the customer
- Extracting a list of subscribers in MailUp and saving it in a file stored in a repository shared with the customer
- every day at 4 am, the customer's system exports a .csv file containing the latest update for the recipients'
- data, to be moved to MailUp.
- Once the file has been stored in the common space, MailUp accesses the file via FTP protocol and imports its content to a predefined list.
- columns in
- CSV file match MailUp's personal data fields, so that they can update the MailUp database.
- At 5 am a procedure extracts unsubscribers and statistics and saves them in separate files stored in a repository shared with the customer
Please not note that this example refers to a synchronization in two both directions, but as explained above it can be set up in one direction only too.
