This feature requires Author user level or higher.

MailChimp Mobile for iOS helps you manage your account on the go. Track subscriber and campaign activity, view campaign reports, and add new subscribers directly from your mobile device.

In this article, you'll learn how to use MailChimp Mobile.

Before You Start

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

  • You must  download the MailChimp Mobile app and connect your account to complete these tasks.
  • MailChimp Mobile is not meant to replace the full version of MailChimp. If you need to do something in your account that isn't available in the MailChimp Mobile app, access the full version of MailChimp in a web browser.
  • 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

  • An extension is available for Apple Watch, and MailChimp Mobile is also available for Android devices.

Add a Subscriber

MailChimp Mobile helps you add subscribers from almost anywhere in the app: the Home screen, navigation screens, and list view screens.

To add a subscriber, follow these steps.

  1. Tap the Add Subscriber icon in the upper-right corner of the screen.

You'll see a success message when your subscriber's information has been submitted correctly.

Send a Campaign

After you've created a campaign in the MailChimp web application, you'll be able to send it from MailChimp Mobile. 

To send a draft campaign, follow these steps.
