Adding automation while creating contact


Is it possible to add an automation to a contact at the same time as creating one?

It seems like of a lot of steps to make a call to create a contact, parse the response for the id and then create an automation for that contact through a separate call.

Couldn’t find anything in the documentation.


Hi there,

Just jumping in here. At this time, there is not an API call that creates a contact and adds them to an automation at the same time. If you would like to see a call like this added, I would encourage you to submit the idea here:

All submissions are reviewed by our Product team who are welcome to new ideas.

Let me know if you need any clarification or have any other questions.

Thank you,
