Integration Using Subscription Forms
Posted by Rachel Chiu on 22 August 2013 11:59 AM
Subscription Forms are the gateway to your mailing list.
Manage Subscription Forms
To manage subscription forms, click on the Integration tab.
A default subscription form is generated for each install, and will remain there as a fallback option if no other subscription form is specified. You can “Edit” the default subscription form (by hovering over the form and clicking “Edit this form”), or “Add” any number of new ones (by clicking the “Create New Form” button).
When adding a form, you will be asked to choose the default list for the form. You would also need to name the form.
Subscription Form Settings
Build your subscription form Tab
The first section, when you’re adding or editing a subscription form, is the “Build your subscription form” section.
Here you can build your form by adding fields from the left (by clicking on the Field Buttons) to the form on the right. You can also change the position of the fields by dragging and dropping them to the desired position.
Theme & style options Tab
In this section, you can choose from 5 different themes. Changing the theme of your form allows you to match your brand’s look and feel.
Opt-in confirmation email Tab
You can customize the Email that is sent when someone subscribes to your list on this section. Here you can change the From Name, the From Email, the Subject of your confirmation email, as well as the actual message of the email.
In addition, if you choose to not send a confirmation email, you can do so by unchecking the “Send confirmation email to verify subscribers want to receive your email” box.
Form Settings Tab
Here you can set the page that your subscribers will see after they have Subscribed to your list, Confirmed their subscription, or if they encounter any error.
To edit any of these three items, click on the “Subscription confirmation page” link on the right.
You have two options when you’re editing/setting up the confirmation or error pages: 1. You could build your page on the software OR 2. You could re-direct to a URL that you have set up.
Other Integration Settings: Aside from customizing the Subscription confirmation and error pages, you can also customize the Unsubscribe, Subscription Updates, Forward a Friend, and Campaign Archive pages.
Integrate with your site Tab
In order for your Subscription to be useful, your subscribers would need to have access to it. There are several ways for you to be able to disseminate your subscription form.
This section provides you with all your options for integration: Website, Facebook, Social Sharing, QR Code, and Direct Link.
