Set Date HTTP POST

The set-date HTTP POST function provides a means to set or update an Infusionsoft contact field with a date/time. You can do basic math on these dates, and when used with a date value this is very useful when used in conjunction with Infusionsoft’s “Field Timer” tool in the Campaign Builder.

Examples

Set a custom field to 1 month from today

http://yoursite.com/?operation=set-date&auth_key=yourauthkey&source=&target=_YourCustomDateField&function=plus+1+month

Set a custom field to 3 months from today

http://yoursite.com/?operation=set-date&auth_key=yourauthkey&source=&target=_YourCustomDateField&function=plus+3+months

Field Types

Field Timers enable you to schedule a marketing action based on a date field in the contact record. There are two built-in date fields in contact records, the Anniversary and Birthday. You can also create custom fields using the date field type. Only Date fields will work with field timers, Date/Time fields will not work.

Update Contact HTTP POST

The update-contact HTTP POST function is a system for Infusionsoft to notify Memberium that an update has been made to the contact, and that Memberium needs to update the contact’s records.

It’s also more efficient than using the [memb_sync_contact] shortcode, which will resync the contact everytime the page it’s on displayed, and not only after changes.
