Before you can successfully use the Create Activity action, you will need to:

1. Login into your account by going here:

2. Once you are on the Programs > Points page, scroll down and ensure that your Points status program is active.

3. Scroll back up and click on the Add ways to earn button.

4. In the Smile Apps section, select the earning action by MESA you'd like to add by clicking on the name of the action.

5. Configure and fill in any required fields to complete the earning action setup. Decide how many points a customer can earn and set the status to: Active

6. Click Create to save the action you just made!

7. Back in the MESA workflow with the Create Activity action, select the appropriate activity in the Activity Type dropdown menu based on the newly created earning action.

Ensure that you have selected the correct Activity Type. Otherwise, MESA will not create activities appropriately.

If you'd like to create multiple MESA workflows with the Create Activity action for different earning actions, you will need to repeat steps 3-7 for each different earning action.

Customer ID field

To create activities on a customer's profile, you will need to fill out the Customer ID field in the Create Activity action.

1. The best way to get a customer's ID is to add a Get List of Customers step before the Create Activity step. Here is an example:

2. Then, in the Get List of Customers step, use the Email field to get a list of customers based on the specified email address. In most cases, you will want to use MESA's Variables feature to select a variable that represents an email address.

3. In the Create Activity step, you can use the Variable feature to select a variable under the Get List of Customers step that represents the ID

4. You will be prompted with a Workflow Hint. In most cases, it would be okay to click on Return first item. If you are not certain, feel free to reach out to our Customer Success team!
