How to turn on email sync

Privy allows you to connect your account to a number of email service providers. Connecting your account is something that can be done quickly and easily. The best part? Once you’ve completed this process your contacts will be auto-synced to the email service of your choice.

Note: Your email service provider account is now linked to Privy. However, we need to make sure that your campaign automatically syncs contacts to the list of your choosing. Syncing contacts to the right list is done on a per-campaign basis. To start this process click on the “Campaigns” tab on the upper left portion of the screen.

Important notes:

  • Not all email service providers work the same way, they may require different information from you before you can link them to Privy
  • Advanced sync is a feature that is only available on paid plans
