However, if you’re using a different shopping cart (other than AccessAlly) then you might want to kick-start a Team through a CRM automation, instead.
How to Initiate a New Team Creation Through Your CRM Automation
The first step is to set up your AccessAlly Team, by choosing the name and the default team size.
Create Your Automation & Apply the Team Leader Tag
The first step will be to kick-start an automation inside your CRM after a purchase for a “Teams License”.
By default, the contact that runs the “initiate team” webhook will become a Team Leader or Team Parent.
This tag will automatically be assigned to this contact, and you can specify the tag here in the team settings:
Copy the Webhook to Create a Team
Then navigate to the “Webhook URL” tab in the team settings area here:
From there, you’ll want to “Copy” the URL and use it within your CRM automation campaign to trigger the creation of the team.
Run the Webhook Inside Your CRM
You can optionally apply other tags you want to your team parent, but the most important step here is to run an HTTP Post / Webhook back to AccessAlly using the “initiate team” URL you just copied. It might look like this:
Now your team is initialized!
Keep in mind that you’ll still need to create the welcome emails for both Team Leaders and Team members.
Set Up Your “Parent” Automation
You can add the welcome email directly following your previous webhook, but we recommend setting it up separately so that if someone gets “upgraded” from a team member to a team leader they’ll get the correct email notification, too.
- Trigger: When the “Team Parent” tag is added
- Send Email
Include the necessary login details here in this email.
REMEMBER: Ontraport requires the ContactID to be manually added as post data in order for the webhook to function properly (screenshot in this tutorial).
Since team members are added manually by the team leader, no further actions need to be taken on your part to ensure the team runs smoothly.
Set Up Your “Child” Automation
A “child” tag that will be applied to a user as soon as the team leader adds them to the team.
You can use this tag to trigger an automation that is almost identical to the Parent automation: a quick email that welcomes the new team member and tells them how to log in.
