How to Integrate MailChimp with FormCrafts
Our MailChimp integration allows you to automatically add subscribers to your MailChimp list when the form is submitted.
Step 1: Make a Simple Form
Create a new form, and add an email
field, and two one-line text
fields. Make the email field compulsory.
Label the text fields as First Name
, and Last Name
Now add a Checkbox
field, and set the label to Subscribe,
and, under the Options tab, Options List
to 1=Yep, sign me up for the newsletter
Step 2: Enable MailChimp
Go to Add-Ons -> Email Marketing
, and click on the enable
button next to MailChimp. This will open the MailChimp login screen in a new window. Once you successfully log in, you will be redirected to FormCrafts, and will see the success message. Now you can close this window, and go back to our form builder.
Step 3: Map the Fields
Go back to Add-Ons -> Email Marketing.
The Integrations tab should look like this
We are now ready to map the fields between FormCrafts and MailChimp.
- Select a MailChimp list from the dropdown
- Select a FormCrafts field (say, Email)
- Select the corresponding MailChimp field (say, Email Address)
Now click on Add. Simple, isn't it? Now add two more rows, mapping the First Name and Last Name to their corresponding columns in the MailChimp list.
That's it. Now save the form, click on Live Preview, and fill it out!
