Before You Start

Here are some things to know before you begin this process.

  • This article uses an iPhone 6 Plus to demonstrate MailChimp Mobile's features. Other iOS devices may render the same features slightly differently.
  • Depending on your user level, you may not have access to all the features in this article. Account Owners, Admins, and Managers have full access to MailChimp Mobile.

Apple's Handoff and 3D Touch Feature

Apple offers a couple of unique features that can be used to streamline your workflow on iOS devices.


Apple's Handoff feature allows you to begin working on one iOS device and pick up where you left off on another. Handoff is available in MailChimp Mobile version 3.5 and later, and requires that you've installed MailChimp Mobile on each compatible device you want to use. 

When you're working in MailChimp Mobile on a compatible device, a MailChimp Mobile icon appears in the bottom-left corner of the lock screen on your other devices. To switch to the other device, swipe the icon up to open MailChimp Mobile, and we'll send you straight to the screen you were viewing on your other device.

Troubleshoot Handoff

Handoff uses iCloud to sync information between your iOS devices. Initially, the Handoff feature may not work on some iCloud accounts and will require that you restart a couple settings on your mobile devices. If Handoff doesn't work for you, follow these steps.

  • Check that your iOS devices are compatible with Handoff.
  • If your devices are compatible, open your device's Settings app, and turn Bluetooth off and on again.
  • You may also need to sign out of iCloud and back in again, in the Settings app for each device. 

‚Äč3D Touch

Apple's 3D Touch feature opens a Peek and Pop when you tap on an application to show you shortcuts to what's inside. 3D Touch is available on iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus.

To quickly add a subscriber or view your latest report, tap and push on the MailChimp Mobile app on your iOS device to open the Peek and Pop. 

Notification Center Widgets

MailChimp Mobile includes campaigns and lists widgets that can be added to the Today view in the pull-down iOS Notification Center. The Campaigns widget displays an overview of reporting statistics for your most recently sent campaign. The Lists widget lets you select a list to use in the widget, and displays list growth statistics as well as a shortcut to add subscribers.
