How Do I Send Existing Recipients a Double Opt-in (DOI) Email? (For Example, a Second DOI for the GDPR)

Regardless of the registration form, you can also use our tool to send a DOI mailing to your customers.

This can be useful if, for example, you want to carry out a re-opt-in (double opt-in again) within the framework of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
Important: This feature is only available in the Standard and Pro package.
You can use this function, e.g. if the consent already given is already a while back and you have doubts about its effectiveness due to the time span.
For this please proceed as follows:
1) First create and activate the DOI mailing. Here we recommend to adapt the text and e.g. explain to the recipients why a renewed activation is necessary.

2) Next, create a provisional application form and link it to the created DOI mailing. The registration form is only required for technical reasons to activate the DOI mailing, but is not displayed.

3) If the data is not available externally, you can export the recipient data in the address book using the button "Export as CSV". If you do not want to write to all the recipients, you can simplify the selection here with a group. Important! You must therefore delete these recipients before importing them from the address book, as DOI mailing will only be sent to non-existent recipients.
4) Upload the exported CSV file via "Add Recipient".
5) Before importing, you must then activate the "Send Double-Opt-In Mailing" function.
6) A pop-up will appear showing the registration form and, if applicable, the assigned group. Since registration forms can also be activated for multiple address books, here are two options:
  • "current address book" = the recipients are only added to the current address book after activation via the Doi link
  • "Address books of the registration form" = the recipients will be added after activation via the Doi link to all address books that are stored in the form. Otherwise, you can also change the registration form again if several forms are assigned to the address book. Then confirm the selection again with "Addressbooks of the registration form".
Important: This feature is only available in the Standard and Pro package.

7) Now import the data and start shipping the DOI. Only after activation of the link, the recipients in the address book appear again under "active recipients" and are also active again in the groups.

Important! You must therefore delete these recipients before importing them from the address book, as DOI mailing will only be sent to non-existent recipients.
