GetOpeners: How to integrate with Sendgrid

You can integrate your GetOpeners account directly with Sendgrid.

An integration between GetOpeners and Sendgrid allows you to sync live open events so you can send your audience an automated email when they are in their inbox.

What you’ll need

1. Your API Key. Click Settings > API Keys in the left navigation of your Sendgrid account. Then, click Create API Key.

2. Choose Billing Access and Full Access. Click Create & View.

3. Click the API Key (blurred text below) to copy it. Click Done.

To get started

1. From your GetEmails dashboard, click the GetOpeners logo in the top-left corner.

2. The drop-down menu will appear. Click GetOpeners. You will be taken to the GetOpeners dashboard.

3. Click on Integrations from the left navigation panel in GetOpeners. Then, click Available Integrations at the top and choose the Sendgrid icon.

4. Paste your API Key, and click Connect.

5. Click Yes to turn the Sync Live Open Events on. Choose a list from the drop-down menu that you want to sync events to. If you don’t have one, you’ll need to first create the list in Sendgrid. Then, click Next.

6. Enter an email address that already exists in Sendgrid to send a test event. Click Send. If you don’t currently have contacts, click Next.

7. Enable the integration. Then, click Finish.

Remember: For the integration to work, it needs to be Enabled AND have Event Sync turned on (choose “Yes”).

8. You will be taken to Integration Settings. This is where you can Disable/Enable the integration, Remove it, and edit your Event Sync settings.

9. Next, test the event to pass the Event name you created to Sendgrid. To do that, click the Edit icon next to Event Sync. Then, click Send Test Event.

10. Paste an email address that already exists in your Sendgrid account, and click Send.

11. Once you’ve set up the integration, this is how the open events email will be saved in your Sendgrid list. The email from the open event will appear inside the list you chose for Event Sync (ex. GO Open).

How to send a test event

1. From your Integration Settings, click the edit icon next to Event Sync. Once you have your List (event identifier) selected, click Send Test Event.

2. Paste an email address that already exists in Sendgrid to send a test event. Click Send.
