Thx Steve. Actually your response provided some good inspiration and I have now done as you suggest but for another reason - to minimise the possibility of a loop in an integration I'm working on (& am still testing).
The issue is that we can set arpR to http post our subscriber data to another software (an "action") upon a certain "event" trigger taking place, such as someone submitting an arpR subscription form.
The event triggers upon which we can initiate an "action" are limited to link click / broadcast open / reg form submit / remote call / follow-up msg open / single email open. There is no option to initiate an "action" after someone registers by email. This is what I wanted to achieve, so people could send an email (in this case from within our iphone app) and they automatically get added simultaneously to both the autoresponder series and the membership software.
I'm still working it out with Michel who installed for me. If others are interested in this I'll report back with developments.
Great to be able to exchange ideas in here!
Thx, Steve for the idea! I will raise this with Michel.
BTW, would you be willing to share your approach to the survey issues? - I could really make use of such a tool myself and have been unsuccessful in finding a survey tool I consider suitable so far.
