Collecting Emails for a Mailing List

Woobox Form elements have an email field by default, but you may want to add an Email Opt-in checkbox for confirmation.

To add the checkbox, click to select the Form element on the Entry page in the Design or Customize section, then click +Add Form Field from the left navigation. From the popup, select ‘Email Opt-In’. Set the label to anything you’d like, and set the default to checked or not. Finally, click add.

Form element - settings
Form fields menu - email opt in

From then on, every time a user enters, they may choose to be opted-in to emails. Once you have started collecting this data, all you need to do is export all of your user data to a spreadsheet file.

Where do I get the entrant data?

From the Participants or Votes tab (depending on the  campaign type) click Download and select the Entries export.

Participants - Download (new dashboard)

In previous version campaigns, you can go to Export -> Download Exports under the Manage tab for the Entries CSV and Stats.

Manage - export - download

How do I identify the form input associated with each column?

The label that you give most fields will become the title of the column on the Entries CSV.

You can also now create a hidden “Field Name“. The field name is separate from the Label and will only appear as the title of a column in the Entries CSV:
