Humanize Infusionsoft Dates

OVERVIEW

Infusionsoft's standard date formatting isn't the best for communicating with other... Humans. If you'd like a date to be displayed as "March 18th at 3:00pm" instead of "03/18/2015 15:00:00", use this tool.

FAQs / Tips

Implementation Types

HTTP Post

Run your tool virtually anywhere in your campaign using an HTTP post element.

1
This Tool should be triggered by an "HTTP Post" from Infusionsoft. This can be done using the Campaign Builder's "Send HTTP Post" option found on the left hand side of the sequence builder, under the "Process" section.
2
Decide where in your campaign you want to trigger this Tool. It can be part of virtually any Campaign Sequence.
3
In the Campaign Sequence, place a "Send HTTP Post" action where you want to run the Tool.
4
Use the Tool URL, provided above, in the "POST URL" field of the HTTP Post.
5
Leave the default "Name / Value Pairs" as is. There should be an entry that looks like this: contactId = ~Contact.Id~
6
Leave the Merge Fields as is. PlusThis gets all of the data necessary to run from the Contact Id Name / Value pair.
7
Mark the HTTP Post (and Sequence) as "Ready".
8
Publish your campaign changes and test! The "Send Test" button in Infusionsoft is not a good way to test PlusThis Tools. Instead, create a test contact record and push that record through the appropriate sequence.
