How to Integrate Deadline Funnel with Infusionsoft (API)

The API integration with Infusionsoft is the easiest and most flexible way to integrate Deadline Funnel with your Infusionsoft account.

Important: You will need to complete the setup of your first evergreen campaign before you will see the API integrations link in the left nav.

Video Tutorial:

Click on API Integrations and scroll down and click "I need to create a new API connection."

Each Deadline Funnel campaign gets its own API integration. 

Note: Make sure you are logged into your Infusionsoft Account before taking the next step.

On the 'Select Service/Email Provider' screen, click on 'Infusionsoft', then on the 'Connect' screen click 'Integrate with Infusionsoft':

Click 'Allow' in the modal that pops up to connect Infusionsoft with Deadline Funnel:

Click 'Infusionsoft' in your existing API connections:

On the next screen, create a custom field to store each contact's deadline:

On the next screen, 1) click the drop-down next to form group and select the group within Infusionsoft that holds your custom fields then 2) give your new custom field a name. You can just use 'deadlinetext' if you like. We call this the "deadlinetext" field because it's a custom field that stores each contact's unique deadline. When finished, click 'Create':

(If you don't see Custom Fields in the form group drop-down it's likely because you haven't created any custom fields in InfusionSoft yet. In this case, please create your custom field in your Infusionsoft account and then integrate it with Deadline Funnel.)

Copy your Deadline Funnel webhook:

Go into your campaign sequence in Infusionsoft and add "Send HTTP Post" at the point in the sequence where you want the deadline to begin.

Double-click on 'Send HTTP Post' and 1) paste your Deadline Funnel webhook into the 'Post URL' box, 2) remove the Name/Value Pair, then 3) slide 'Draft' to 'Ready':

Make sure to publish your campaign. Now the deadline will begin for each contact as soon as they reach the HTTP Post in your automation

Testing the API Integration:

You can test your integration by adding a contact to your automation, and then clicking 'Test in the admin to make sure you get a success message:

You can also wait for the webhook to happen, and then check under Event Tracking in Deadline Funnel to confirm the email address was received by Deadline Funnel.

Important Note about Email Links

For the API integration to work you MUST use the Deadline Funnel email links in any of your emails that link to a sales page with a countdown timer, or that link to a page in your funnel that links to another page with your countdown timer.
In other words, the API integration requires that your subscribers click one of the Deadline Funnel email links before they reach a page with a countdown. This is necessary in order to make sure each subscriber is assigned the correct deadline.
