How do I add subscribers to a Mailchimp list when they RSVP to a Splash event?

1. Go to https://splashthat.com/account/integrations

If you don't have access to this page, it means your organization hasn't been granted the necessary permissions. 

2. From the Integrations dashboard, click Add New integration: 


3. Choose Simple Postback from the list of available integrations:

4. Name your integration

5. Select a Trigger

What is going to start this integration process? An attendee, event, or will it be sent periodically?

For this example integration, we are going to choose "Attendee" for the Trigger and "RSVP" for the Action
