In this article, you'll learn how to customize Mailchimp for Salesforce.
Before you start
Here are some things to know before you begin this process.
You’ll need to have opted to keep and sync all activity before you start the customization process. If you’ve chosen to sync only subscriber data or if you chose not to sync any data between your Mailchimp and Salesforce accounts, your customization may not display data properly.

Mailchimp for Salesforce does not interact with Salesforce reports.
