Mailchimp 's mobile app makes it easy to manage your account on the go. Create and edit campaigns, track account activity, send and reply to Inbox messages, view reports, and add new contacts directly from your mobile device.
This app can do a lot for you when you're out and about, but it's not meant to replace the full version of Mailchimp. If you need to do something in your account that isn't available in the mobile app, access the full version of Mailchimp in a web browser.
In this article, you'll learn what you can do with Mailchimp's mobile app.
Before you start
Here are some things to know before you begin this process.
- Just getting started? For more information on how to set up Mailchimp, check out our article on how to use Mailchimp on mobile devices.
- This article uses a Nexus 5 to demonstrate Mailchimp's features. Other Android devices may render the same features slightly differently.
- Depending on your user level, you may not have access to all the features in this article. Owners, Admins, and Managers have full access to our mobile app.
- Mailchimp's mobile app is also available for iOS devices.
Navigating the app
You'll find the main navigation tabs at the bottom of your screen. These include Home, Audience, Campaigns, and Reports. You can also tap the plus sign icon to access the Quick Actions menu.

You can sort your results by campaigns or by contacts in your audience.
To access your account settings, tap the profile icon in the upper-right corner of the Home tab.

We’ll provide suggestions and recommended actions on how to grow your audience and share stories about other Mailchimp users. For example, we may suggest that you try a welcome email automation, an abandoned cart email, or a product retargeting email. To learn more about these features, check out Create an Automated Welcome Email on Mobile, Create an Abandoned Cart Email on Mobile, and Create a Product Retargeting Email on Mobile.
