We have recently updated Topics in Zoho Campaigns. Please click here for the updated help document.
There are two types of sync between Bigin and Zoho Campaigns that you can set up.
  1. Immediate Sync : After you setup and initiate an immediate sync, any new record that is added in Bigin will be automatically updated in Campaigns. Your records will be up-to-date without any lag. Using immediate sync, you can only sync records from your Contacts module in Bigin.
  2. Periodic Sync : Set up this sync to schedule periodic syncing of all your records between Bigin and Campaigns on a daily, weekly, or monthly basis. Using periodic sync, you can import records from the Contacts, Companies, and Deals module in Bigin.

Initiating Immediate Sync  

You can initiate an immediate sync with Bigin to import records from your Contacts module in Bigin. Once you initiate an immediate sync, records from Contacts module will be imported and the new records that are added in Bigin will also be automatically imported.

  8. Setup the field mapping and click Initiate at the bottom-right.

Initiating Periodic Sync

You can initiate a periodic sync with Bigin to import records from modules Contacts, Companies and Deals from Bigin to Campaigns at intervals that you define. New records that are added in the specific module will be imported at the defined intervals.

To avoid multiple syncs to a custom view, please make use of periodic syncs rather than creating new immediate syncs to import data at regular intervals.
