Set the Mailchimp trigger as “Subscriber unsubscribed”

A playbook always starts with a trigger, which is responsible for detecting changes in your connected applications and responding accordingly.

Add the Mailchimp trigger to initiate your playbook's actions every time a subscriber unsubscribes. Click "Add trigger" in your playbook and choose "Subscriber unsubscribed" from the dropdown menu under Mailchimp.

If you still need to connect your Mailchimp account to Relay.app yet, a prompt will guide you through the process.

Add the “Send draft” step in Gmail

Integrate the Gmail automation into your playbook to ensure the prompt sending of a drafted email in Gmail every time a subscriber unsubscribes in Mailchimp.

Click the "Add step" button, locate the “Send draft” automation for Gmail, and input the mandatory and relevant details.

If your Gmail account still needs to be connected to Relay.app, you will be prompted to complete that connection. Make sure to allow the necessary permissions for Relay.app to sync with your Gmail account.

Activate your playbook

Activating your playbook is the last step in the process. Once you turn it on, it will automatically send a drafted email in Gmail every time a subscriber unsubscribes in Mailchimp without requiring manual intervention.

To activate your playbook, click the toggle button at the header. Before activating, we recommend performing a test run of your playbook to ensure all the steps work seamlessly together.
