In this Help Center article, we will walk you through the steps to get Attentive connected as a destination in the GrowthLoop web application. Once connected, you will be able to send your audience segments to Attentive for marketing activation!


Before you begin this process, you must have an Attentive SFTP account set up for you. If you haven’t yet requested an SFTP account, please contact your designated Client Strategy team member or our White Glove team [email protected]

You will be required to provide an email address that will be used to manage the SFTP account and reset the password.

Let’s get started!!

When you sign into the GrowthLoop, navigate to the Destinations tab on the left sidebar and click New Destination in the top right corner

  • Destination Name: this is how the destination will be named and referred to in to the app going forward
  • Sync frequency: how frequently audiences will be synced to the destination
  • Client Domain: URL used to access your Attentive application.
  • FTP Username: this is your Attentive Username when setting up your SFTP account. You’ll need to contact your Account Manager for this if you already haven’t done so.

With Attentive Mobile the only available Match Field is Phone Number, these will need to be 1:1 so from the drop down you’ll want to select the field on your customer table that represents the customer’s “Phone number”.

How to find your exported audience on Attentive…

When you export an audience to Attentive, you can log in to your Attentive account and navigate to the Audience > Segments tab in the left sidebar. Here, you will find your newly exported audience in the list. Depending on the size of the audience, exports can take up to 30 minutes to populate.
