    First screen I get is 'Enter your API key for MailChimp', not 'Choose a list'. Where to get the key?

    Just to add to what my colleague has stated, the following video should be of some assistance. However, it should be borne in mind that it was uploaded to YouTube over two years ago and there would likely have been a few changes to the procedure since that time:

    Thanks guys! Got my API. Now, it asks for a list. Where to set it up, so it will be on drop-down menu?

     

    Cheers,

    Ben

    The list is the contact list that you currently have in your Mailchimp account.  Selecting the list and submitting will have all the contacts exported from your JotForm submissions list to the selected Mailchimp contact list. 

    But before the exported contact be usable to Mailchimp, Mailchimp will first send an email to your contacts and asking for a subscription confirmation for them to be included to your list.  The contact's information will only appear once the user confirms the email.  You will also receive an email notificaiton from Mailchimp for every confirmation that you receive.

    I forgot to add:  But after the integration with your form.  All submissions to your form that is already integrated with MailChimp will then automatically be confirmed and no email confirmation from the form user is necessary.
