Testing Your Benchmark Email Integration

In order to test if emails successfully send to Benchmark Email you need to do the following:

  • Have a competition created with a Subscribe action
  • Ensure that this action is linked to an existing list in Benchmark Email
  • Enter the action manually from your competition dashboard
  • The action will become invalidated (since we automatically invalidate admin actions)
  • Go to the Actions tab for that competition, then make your action valid
  • It should appear in Benchmark Email within a few minutes
