My Emma,

Currently I'm mapping  on a new website with our API key to our My Emma account.  When an email comes into our account it does not go to a specific list. The only way I can find the new e-mail address is by searching for the address. Before, on our old site we had a My Emma form in which a user could select the "list" they wanted to subscribe to. Now the e-mail seems to just go to our account but is not linked to any list.  I do not want the custom My Emma form on this new site. How can an e-mail be placed in a specific list through API mapping?

Hey there, I'll see if I can help. Emma organizes subscribers into a single audience per account. You can also, optionally, organize subscribers into groups. Subscribers can exist in more than one group. If you're adding new signups via the API, you'll want to use the `group_ids` parameter to specify which group(s) the subscribers should be added to:

group_ids (Array of strings (group_ids)) – An array of group ids to associate sign-up with.

More info here: http://api.myemma.com/api/external/members.html#post--#account_id-members-signup

If you'd like to segment for the members who have been added but not mapped to a group, this might help: https://support.e2ma.net/Resource_Center/Account_how-to/Using_the_segment_builder#What_does_.22Limbo...

Please let me know if you have any questions. Thanks!
