    Hi There, I got the mailchimp form displayed on my website as a widget with interest groups and all but there's no daily/weekly frequency options. How do I get there to show up?
    Am I missing something or is this a feature I have to pay for?

    Hey there!

    I'm assuming the "Frequency" field you're describing is a field in your list, correct?

    If so, then you'll want to make sure that A) your list settings are updated in the plugin by going to "Settings" -> "MailChimp Setup" -> "Update List". If the list is up-to-date, then you'll also want to make sure that your fields and interest groups are checked for display under "Merge Variables Included" and "Interest Groups".

    If we can help with anything else, give us a shout!

    Hi and thanks for the reply.

    If you look at the mailchimp blog
    and click on "Subscribe to email updates" (right hand column)
    the fields include two "Frequency" radio buttons, daily and weekly.

    I would like my subscribed updates only to go out once a week (less bothersome for my users who typically would check their email only once a day or less)

    Is this something I set up in mailchimp? Are there instructions or a how-to somewhere?

    Hey again!

    Ah! Yep! That's a group that you'd set up in your MailChimp account and have on the signup form. Then, when you send out your updates, you can segment based on that group information. Here are a couple of articles from our Knowledge Base that should help:

    You can also swing by our live chat and speak with someone about the setup process, live!

    Thank you! Had a chat with Van on Mailchimp support. Looks like if I use RSS I can set it myself to be sent out once a week. And if I wanted to give the option of daily/weekly I understand now how to do that too.

    THANK YOU for your help.
    Fingers crossed I can get mailchimp to do what I want it to do!
