Export contact lists


In this destination service, DinMo will create lists of contacts and keep them up to date in Emarsys.

To do so, you will need to go through these three steps:

  • Creating an Emarsys destination. Refer to the corresponding section for more info.

  • Creating a user model or segment composed of all the users that will populate your Emarsys list. Refer to this step-by-step tutorial to learn how to build segments without SQL in DinMo.

  • Activating the model or segment to the Emarsys destination to start sending data. Refer to the corresponding section for more info.

Each time the activation will be running:

  • Any new user entering your DinMo segment will be added to your Emarsys list

  • Any user leaving your DinMo segment will be removed from your Emarsys list

Note that only users who have an email linked to an existing Emarsys contact will be present in your list. In this service, DinMo will not create new contacts in Emarsys. Also note that DinMo will not delete contacts in your Emarsys database.

Destination setup

To start exporting lists, you are first required to create an Emarsys destination with the corresponding destination service.

Optional: Setup default activation settings

At the end of the destination creation, you will be proposed to setup Default Activation Settings. This step is optional, but is highly recommended to facilitate the activation process.

By configuring default settings, synchronizing all your contacts lists to Emarsys will just take one click. Without default settings, you will be required to go through the configuration each time you activate a new audience.

Note that even if you setup default settings, you will still be able to adjust activation settings for each of your audiences if you wish to.

Refer to the Activation configuration section for more info about the default settings configuration process.

Activation configuration

Once the destination has been setup, and your DinMo model or segment created, you can configure an activation to start sending data to Emarsys right away. The segment will be exported as a contact list in Emarsys.

Activation Name and Description

In this section, the name you enter will be the name given to the list created in Emarsys.

By default, and if you activate a segment using the default activation settings, the name of the list will be the DinMo segment name.

Fields mapping

In the Fields mapping section, you are asked to specify which field corresponds to the email address of the users of the segment. This is the field that Emarsys will use to recognize the contacts sent by DinMo.


In this section, specify how often the list should be updated in Emarsys. Every time the list is updated:

  • Any new user having entered your DinMo model or segment since the last update will be added to your list, if and only if this user is already an existing Emarsys contact

  • Any user having left your DinMo model or segment since the last update will be removed from your list
