The Application Accounts Section allows you to setup the different ActiveCampaign Accounts that the Extension can be used in.

By default, the majority of the features of the Extension will work without the need of setting up an ActiveCampaign Account.  But, there is a handful of features that will need the application name being set, and some of those will also require the API Key as well.

It is recommended that you do put in your ActiveCampaign Application Account details in.

Application Name

The Application Name is the subdomain name of your ActiveCampaign Application website address.  For example, if you have the following website address: https://example.activehosted.com, then “example” is your Application Name.

Date Format

By default, ActiveCampaign Accounts are set to the US Date Format of (MM/DD/YYYY).  When you setup yourActiveCampaign Account for the first time, you have the option to change the Date Format to another type.

The Extension cannot automatically determine what Date Format yourActiveCampaign Application is currently running, so this setting allows you to control it.

API Key

There is two ways you can setup the API Key.  If you are logged into your ActiveCampaign account and you have entered the Application Name, then click on the “Get API Key” button to retrieve it for you.

Otherwise, the API Key can be found in yourActiveCampaign Application under the “My Settings – Developer – API Access – Key” Section.   The picture below shows an example of this.
