I am using the "contains" method to see if a customer exists before inserting them into the recipient list. (documented here: https://world.episerver.com/documentation/developer-guides/campaign/SOAP-API/recipientwebservice/contains/)
The documentation says:
My question is, is there a way I can check if the recipient exists in even if the opt-in process has not been finished yet? I couldn't find this in the documentation.
I have a feeling this is by design, if a user hasn't opted in then as far as the system is concerned they don't exist so we shouldn't be able to check anything to do with their data, as the user hasn't guaranteed to have given us permission to use it (i.e. the double opt in).
