iMIS Writebacks - Email Address Correction

The iCorrect writeback is intended to let you know when you have "faulty" email addresses. Informz is capable of correcting these automatically (e.g. admin@@iamap.org can be auto-corrected to admin@iamap.org). This correction happens during syncs between Informz and iMIS. The results are viewable via the upload history in the Informz User Interface as System Corrected Emails.

iCorrect

Navigate to Subscribers > Upload > Upload History.

View the System Corrected Emails column (click Columns and select System Corrected Emails if it is not in the current view).

Click the invalid emails count to open a new window with additional details.

Informz records the addresses corrected during each sync, but will only writeback one correction per iMIS ID. Therefore, if a client ignores the iCorrect writeback, Informz will not continue to write back. Informz writes back all information that lives in the subscriber’s table: iMIS Name ID, Subscriber Modified Date, and Email Address (as it appears in iMIS and the corrected version).

The iCorrect writeback occurs after three conditions are met:

  • Informz has not yet written back an iCorrect for the incorrect data.
  • The subscriber has a valid iMIS ID.
  • A sync has flagged the email address as one that needs correcting.

Timing is Key

Because having an accurate email address is a very important thing, this writeback occurs every time there is a sync between Informz and iMIS. This ensures that you have the best chance to send your message to a subscriber!
