Hi,

 

 

The Act! Essentials API returns us the groups on the contact record (as a list), both when getting a single contact as when listing contacts.

Is it possible to expose a similar functionality for the Act! Premium API?

 

Thanks in advance.

Kind reagards,
Wout

This difference is predominately due to optimizations we can do in Essentials that cannot be easily done in Act1 Premium, due to differences in underlying database stores.  Short answer is we're unlikely to be able to do so due to performance / complexity.

Re: Act! Premium filter contacts by Groups

I know this is not what you are specifically asking for, but just wanted to point out that you can get a list of contacts within a specific group.  Using the api/groups/{groupid}/contacts.  This will return a list of contacts within a specific group and you can use odata from there to filter down that list.  The bad news is that if you want a list of contacts from several groups, you will have to make multiple calls for each group.
