Create Transmissions with Recipient List

SparkPost is an online email delivery service provider for developers and businesses. This activity lets you create a new transmission to send a specific message template to a specified recipient list. To do this, add this activity to the canvas and configure it. Select the appropriate connection for SparkPost from the drop-down list. If you haven’t created a connection yet, select ‘Add New’ to create one. 

Field data 

Transmission Start Time (Optional): Enter the date and time at which you wish to initiate the message transmission, in YYYY-MM-DDTHH:MM:SS ±HH:MM format. By default, the message transmission is initiated immediately after the flow execution.

Open Tracking (Mandatory): Specify if you wish to enable or disable open tracking. Available options are 'True' and 'False'. By default, the value for this field is set to 'True'.

Click Tracking (Mandatory): Specify if you wish to enable or disable click tracking. Available options are 'True' and 'False'. By default, the value for this field is set to 'True'.

Campaign ID (Optional): Enter the ID of the campaign with which the transmission is associated.

Metadata_Key (Optional): Enter the key for metadata.

Metadata_Value (Optional): Enter the value for the specified key.

You can add metadata values for multiple keys by clicking on the '+ADD' link.

Substitution Data_Key (Optional): Enter the key for substitution engine.

Substitution Data_Value (Optional): Enter the value for the specified key.

You can add substitution values for multiple keys by clicking on the '+ADD' link.

Recipient List ID (Mandatory): In the 'Recipient List ID’ field, you need to select/specify the name/ID of the recipient list for which you wish to create a transmission. Clicking the ‘Refresh’ icon will fetch the list of all recipient lists from your SparkPost account—based on the connection selected—and display it in the drop-down list. 

In case there are too many recipient lists, you can search the required one by its ‘name’ or ‘ID’. Alternatively, you can manually enter the name or ID of the recipient list for which you wish to create a transmission or use the output of the previous activity as an input for this field.

Template ID (Mandatory): Select/specify the ID of the template that you wish to send as a message.
