Realtime Mailchimp Export

Owen Mar 27, 2018 04:39AM PDT

With GDPR coming, we have a checkbox on the form asking for consent to add the user to our Mailchimp list.

If they do not opt-in, of course we don't want to add them to our email list or more importantly have Mailchimp send them a Double opt-in email.

How do we setup our Woobox (sweepstakes) so that Realtime export to Mailchimp is only send if the user checks the form's opt-in box?

Thanks

All you have to do is add the specified checkbox listed as opt-in. You’ll find this in your “add form field” section when customizing your form. Once added, emails will not be sent to a user if they don’t check the box and they will not be added to your Mailchimp list.

Hi Elle

I used the element you suggested which produces the code below.

We are custom custom HTML, which part of this code is the ID that signifies which checkbox is the relevant opt-in one?

<div class="input-group type-emailoptin">
<div class="input-label no-label">
<label for="custom_3_id"></label>
</div>
<div class="inputs">
<label><input type="checkbox" id="custom_3_id" name="custom_3" />Sign Up for our Newsletter</label>
</div>
</div>

Do you mind me asking why you are in custom mode? I believe the answer to your question is custom_3 – so if you export your data custom_3 will be the users who opted in (if it is blank, they didn’t opt-in. If it says “on” they opted in).

Hi Owen,

Inspecting the HTML code (which also displays the field’s label) will help you to identify the column in the Entries export.
