Next the form is ready to be mapped to Campaign Monitor fields.
- Go to Formidable → Forms and go to the settings page for your form.
- Click on the Settings → Actions & Notifications tab. Click the Campaign Monitor icon to add a Campaign Monitor action to your form.
- Give your Campaign Monitor action a Action Name for easy reference. This label will only be seen on the back-end.
- Select the Campaign Monitor list and connect fields from your form with the Campaign Monitor fields. Any Campaign Monitor custom fields will also appear for the selected list. Be sure to map all required Campaign Monitor fields.
- Submit the form and a new subscriber will be added in Campaign Monitor.
If you have followed the instructions above and data isn't getting added to Campaign Monitor, the first step is to install the Formidable Logs add-on. This will give you more details about any errors that might be preventing data from getting to Campaign Monitor.
