Setup

To enable syncing with Orbit first you need to get an authentication token. Go to your Account Settings (on the menu under your profile picture) and click API Token:

API Token

Then copy the value, and create a new Destination in Hightouch, selecting Orbit as the destination type. Lastly, paste the API token into the field. Save the destination and it's ready to start syncing data.

Syncing activities

When syncing activities, Hightouch treats any records added to your source as new activities and sends them to Orbit when your sync runs.

To ensure syncs send each activity, use a hash function for the activity model's primary key . The hash should combine all columns, including member ID, timestamp, etc. See the event sync documentation for more information.

Select the Activities object from the drop down menu. Then you can define a static value for the title and the identity source for all the activities, or define the column that will contain the information.

Lastly, choose the mappings for the columns in your model.
