When a member emails in and wants to cancel their membership or subscription with you, your team can easily handle this with FuseDesk automation by simply applying the right FuseDesk Case Tag.

This works beautifully for membership sites like Memberium, CustomerHub, or AccessAlly, and plays wonderfully with Infusionsoft’s native e-commerce subscriptions.

Getting Ready

Let’s put a few pieces in place before we get started.

  1. In FuseDesk, head to Case Tags under Settings and create a FuseDesk Case Tag called Cancel Membership. You can call this whatever you want, for example Cancel Gold Membership, Cancel Book Club, etc…
  2. Head to Templates under Settings and create a new Email Template called something like “Membership Cancellation Confirmation” to confirm the automation cancellation. You’ll want copy along the lines of “I’m so sorry to hear you’d like to cancel your membership. Your membership has been cancelled.” Note down the name of your new template.
  3. In Infusionsoft, create a Legacy Action Set to cancel the subscription.
  4. In Infusionsoft, open up Campaign Builder and create a new campaign.
    • Add a Goal of Tag Added and create a new tag named something like “Cancel Membership [Automation]”
    • Link this to a new Sequence and head into the Sequence
    • Add a Remove Tag Process and remove the automation tag above.
    • Also remove any related membership tags that give the customer access
    • Add a Apply Tag Process and apply any tags that indicate the customer is no longer a member, for example a Past Member tag, or a “PAYF” tag.
    • If your membership program uses the password field, you can also add the Set Field Value process to clear out their password.
    • If you need to run an HTTP POST to your membership site or platform to remove them, you can add that here, too
    • Add an Action Set (Legacy) process and choose your Action Set from above to cancel the actual subscription and prevent further billing.

Setting up the Automation

  3. For When, choose A Case Tag is Applied.
  4. Click the green New Automation button.
  5. For your Automation Conditions, choose:
    • Case Tag Applied and select the case tag you created above.
  6. For Automation Actions, choose:
    • Apply Infusionsoft Tag and choose the campaign builder tag from above
    • Reply by Email and choose your cancellation confirmation email template created above.
    • Notify Slack (if you use Slack) so your team knows about the membership cancellation
    • Change Status to Closed
  7. Click Save and Enable
