How to generate an API Key to use with Justuno.
Collecting the Sendlane API key
Log into your Sendlane account and navigate to Settings, then API.
Select Create API Token
Name your API token, and then copy your API token.
Note: Please ensure when creating custom fields they are created in Sendlane before they are added in Justuno or the information will not pass to Sendlane.
Example: create a Business form field within Sendlane, then when building the form in Justuno you can create the Business field.
Note: If you are also collecting email in the same promotion please ensure your form is set up to collect email first THEN sms.
1. Click the Options menu and select Edit Design. If an email layer already exists, move to the next step. Within the design canvas view, find the Email Form in the layers area and click to add that layer to the promotion overlay.
2. While either the Email Form field or the submit button field is selected, hit Change Form.
3. While you are creating an SMS lead capture, you will still choose to connect the ESP provider as we are simply adding an SMS field to your Sendlane form.
4. Scroll down, and select the Sendlane option, then enter your API key.
5. Once the API credentials are accepted by the authentication process, you will see that Klaviyo has successfully been integrated into your promotion. Now, click Next. And select which email lists you would like to send submissions.
6. Upon finishing the selection of desired lists, a form will be generated from the associated Sendlane fields, and can now be edited within Justuno's form builder where you can add your SMS capture. The form must have either an email or phone number or both. If you do not have one of the two it will not allow you to create the form
7. Please note you can also add an SMS Consent field. If SMS is being collected via a field input, then a consent checkbox is required.
8. Click Next, then configure the Klaviyo integration settings. Once finished configuring, click Next.
Note: Justuno has the ability within the Klaviyo integration to either enable or disable duplicate SMS subscriptions per list. This built-in function will cross-reference the SMS numbers that are contained within the list to be synced with Justuno and will filter accordingly. This feature will work regardless of whether or not the list being synced is preexisting and contains subscribers from a date prior to the current promotion's creation.
9. Review your form then click Create Form and edit the design to your preferences.
