The VerticalResponse module allows users to sign-up or subscribe to a VerticalResponse mailing list from a drupal node. The module also allows administrators to generate VerticalResponse e-mail newsletter campaigns using Drupal and the Basic E-news module.
VerticalResponse is promoting a new version of their API, VR2. This module is only compatible with VR Classic API. At the moment there are no plans to update the module for VR2, but maintainers welcome anyone who wants to maintain a new branch.
- Administrators can associate any single node with any number of VerticalResponse mailing lists.
- The VerticalResponse module now includes a "campaign manager," which allows administrators to create and launch VerticalResponse e-mail campaigns from within Drupal.
- Administrators can allow users to subscribe to mailing lists during the registration process.
- Allows admins to map user properties to merge fields using a view.
- Administrators can segment lists in Drupal.
- The VR module depends on the VerticalResponse Classic API, so it must be enabled for your account. If you have a VR2 account, you will have to contact VR support to disable it and create a Classic account.
- If you already have a VR account you should fill out this form to request API access for your account.
- If you do not already have a VerticalResponse account, you can sign up for an API-enabled account here.
