You can create two types of forms:

  • Signup Forms
  • Unsubscribe Forms

Signup Forms

You can create and embed a signup form to capture data and add contacts to a certain list in your account. For example, a signup form for your email newsletter.

How to create a new signup form

To create a new signup form, hover over ‘Surveys & Forms’ on the navigation menu, and then select ‘Signup Forms’ from the dropdown menu. 

Click the 'Create Signup Form' button in the top right.

Enter a name for your form before clicking 'Create'.

You will then be taken to the Form Builder to build your signup form.

Step 1: Using the Form Builder

This is broken down into 5 different sections:

  1. Choose the fields to include in the form - Select the fields that you want to be included in your form. Please note: You can only add fields that are available in your contact database. This means the fields will be populated when the form is submitted.
  2. Select the list(s) you wish to populate with contact data - Select the contact list that you want the data to be added to once the form has been completed. Please note: You can add the data to more than one list if needed.
  3. Enter a URL to redirect the user to once they have submitted the form - Redirect the user to a webpage once the form has been completed.
  4. Enter a valid email address where you wish the confirmation to be sent to (optional) - Set up an email notification for when your form is submitted.
  5. Enter a subject line for the confirmation email (optional) - Create a subject line for the confirmation email.

You can also click on 'Advanced options' at the bottom of the Form Builder to set some additional settings to your form.

The additional options are:

  • Enable honeypot field - Enabling this will add an extra layer of security to your form by filtering out spam or junk submissions to your form. When this option is enabled, a hidden field will be added to your form HTML and any spammy contacts that are captured will not be added to your contact list.
  • Form language - By default, the language of your form will be set to English. This means that the 'Submit' button of your form will be in English, as well as the automated opt-in confirmation email that follows after submission. You can change the language of your form from English to French or German.
    Whatever language you select will automatically update your form language as well as the automated emails that get sent to the contact. The contact will also have the selected language mapped against them in Wired. To find out more about languages in the system, click here.

Once you have finished building your form, click 'Generate Form' to move onto the next step.

Step 2: Generating your form

After generating your form, you will be taken to the 'Signup Form Preview' page.

Here, you will see a preview of your form and its code snippet.

Copy and the code to embed the form onto your website or landing page.

If you want to go back and edit your form, click on the 'Edit Signup Form' in the top right.

Signup Forms listing page

When you hover over 'Surveys & Forms' on the main navigation bar and select 'Signup Forms', you will see a listing page.

Here, you will see a list of any signup forms that have previously been created.

You will see information against each form - its creation date, last updated date, status, and number of submissions.

Signup Form status

Your form can be in one of three states:

  • Active - Form has been generated and contacts can submit the form;
  • Inactive - Form has been generated but later deactivated - contacts cannot submit the form;
  • Draft - Form has been created or partially created but has not been generated.

Number of form submissions

You can see how many submissions each of your signup forms have received.

Please note: This number is not unique. If the same contact submits your form five times, your number of form submissions will increase by five - not one.

How to rename a form

Please note: Your form might not have a name if you created it before these updates were released. You can easily rename the form to change this.

From the Signup Forms listing page, you can rename your form by clicking on the pencil icon.

Enter the name and click the 'Rename' button.

How to view a form

To view a form, click on the cog icon to the left of the form and select 'View' from the dropdown.

You will then be taken to the Form Preview page where you can view your form and copy its code snippet.

How to edit a form

To view a form, click on the cog icon to the left of the form and select 'Edit' from the dropdown.

You will then be taken to the Form Builder.

How to regenerate a form

If at a later date, you need to copy the form's code snippet - you can access this at any time. Simply click on the cog icon to the left of the form and select 'Regenerate' from the dropdown.

You will then see the form's code snippet.

How to deactivate a form

If you no longer want your form to be active, you can deactivate it. Simply click on the cog icon to the left of the form and select 'Deactivate' from the dropdown.

Click 'Yes' to confirm.

Unsubscribe Forms

You can create a form that your contacts can submit if they wish to unsubscribe from your emails. Once the contact submits this form, they will become suppressed.

How to create a new unsubscribe form

To create a new unsubscribe form, hover over ‘Surveys & Forms’ on the navigation menu, and then select ‘Unsubscribe Forms’ from the dropdown menu. 

You will then be taken to the Unsubscribe Form Designer.

Here, you can build and generate your unsubscribe form.

This is split into 2 steps:

  1.  Enter your title and description - Enter the title and description that users will see when viewing your form.
  2. Enter a redirect URL - Enter a URL to redirect the user to once they have submitted the unsubscribe form.

When you're done, click 'Create Form' in the bottom right.

This will then generate the code's snippet. 

Copy and the code to embed the form onto your website or landing page.
