    Hi Jenny, can you provide some additional clarification for this?  We have our SelectRecipientData XML API which accepts a Recipient Id/Contact Id and returns a full contact's details.  Was there another flow you had in mind for tracking back to a contact record via the unique Recipient Id?

    Hi Zack, I work with Jenny and to clarify. We are upable to sync using recipient ID when doing a batch list import via API. We are able to sync on Recipient ID when importing using the UI but not the API.

    Hi Zack & Talal,

    Adding detail from IT:


    When we are updating coupon subcodes for contacts (on a list or query) within WCA there is currently no way via the API to target a specific RECIPIENT_ID to be updated.  Because of this we have to go through a 7 step process to ensure the code(s) we are uploading get assigned to the correct WCA contact (using various combinations of email, sms # and cust #).
