Userlist (Event Stream)

Userlist is an email automation platform for SaaS companies. Unlike other email providers, it meets the complexity of your SaaS business. You can track company-level data, and trigger campaigns based on company-level events. It's the best way to onboard, engage, and nurture customers and marketing leads.


Keep these things in mind when sending events to Userlist:

  • You must enable this integration in each Amplitude project you want to use it in.
  • You need a paid Userlist plan to enable this integration.
  • Amplitude matches the user_id to the ID field within Userlist to associated events. If user with that ID doesn't exist in Userlist, a user is created. Make sure that the Amplitude user_id field matches the Userlist identifier field to avoid user duplication.
  • Amplitude sends all user, event, and group properties along with the event.


Userlist setup

To start sending data into Userlist, you first have to get your Push API Key from Userlist. It's used to authenticate your requests to the Push API and connect the data with your account. Find this in your Userlist Settings. See the Userlist documentation for more help. There are no other setup steps in Userlist.
