Support » Plugin: Easy Forms for Mailchimp » Mailchimp Account Activity not very useful

  • Resolved Ambyomoron

    The Mailchimp Account Activity box on the admin dashboard shows a list of events, without any detail as to when the event occurred or to whom it refers. As a result, I typically see a list such as:

    Type 	        Message
    New Subscriber 	1 new subscribers to My list
    New Subscriber 	1 new subscribers to My list
    New Subscriber 	1 new subscribers to My list
    ...

    With all due respect, this information uses processing and network resources without really creating an actionable report. Rather than minimizing the block, I would prefer that the list not be created at all, as it doesn’t show me anything I don’t already know and does not make any of my work faster, more effective or more efficient. I have already received much more useful information about the same events coming directly from MailChimp.
    Can we not disable completely the creation of such lists, so as to avoid needless use of processor and network resources?

    Hey Josiah,

    If you don’t go to the account page, no additional resources will be used. You can ignore that page if it doesn’t assist you in any way 🙂

    Cheers,
    Kevin.

    My mistake – in the previous comment I thought you were referring to the Account page. I re-read it and realized you’re referring to the admin dashboard widgets. There is no way to turn these off but the data its grabbing is cached for an hour so it’s not consuming very many resources and it only makes an API call once an hour.

    Hi Josiah,

    This was removed from the new version of our plugin that was released today. It is not supported by v3 of the MailChimp API and we removed all items not supported by v3.

    And like you said, it’s not very helpful anyway 🙂

    Thank you,
    -Tracy
