- Make sure you don't have two lists or campaigns with the same name. Lists or campaigns with identical names will continually overwrite eachother.
- Make sure every individual in your list has or campaign has a valid email address. You can use the Addresses > Has Email parameter when creating your list to ensure only individuals with an email address are added to the list.
Act-On sync logs can be found by going to Admin > Plug-ins > Act-On > Logs.
These logs will display lists and campaigns that are queued for syncing or have completed syncing.
Enquire will never delete individuals from a list or campaign. We recommend verifying that the individual wasn't removed from the list or campaign within Act-On.
Make sure the individual you are trying to view in Act-On is either the Prospect or Resident on the case. Enquire's integration with Act-On will only display information for the Prospect or Resident on a case. Contacts are not currently supported with our Act-On integration.
