[Forminator Pro] Forminator Mailhimp integration and opt-in field

I have a contact form where there is a checkbox for customers to opt-in for our newsletter.

Using Forminator and the Mailchimp integration I don't see any way of only adding those that have checked for the newsletter.

Would been really great to have the option to only add contacts that have opted-in.

    Hello Kjetil,

    I just want to be sure we are on the same page - you have a contact form that you also want to be tied with MailChimp. So when someone is using this contact form and also checks that they want to join newsletter will subscribe them and send a message, but if they don't tick it it will just only send message? Do I get this correct? Let me know.

    kind regards,
    Kasia

    Hello. What is the status of this request? I would also like to see this functionality added. This feature request is something that is pretty standard and used by most people using Mailchimp or any other email service provider. Thanks in advance!

      I would like to see functionality similar to the Gravity Forms Mailchimp integration.

      https://www.gravityforms.com/add-ons/mailchimp/

      Seamless Integration
      Directly integrate your forms with MailChimp to gain more mailing list subscribers.

      Why limit yourself to a single mailing list subscription field when you could capture new subscribers from any form on your site? With Gravity Forms and the MailChimp add-on, every form on your WordPress site becomes a potential subscriber!

      Packed with features and incredibly easy to use, we know you'll fall in love with Gravity Forms just like millions of companies worldwide have.

      Custom Fields
      Capturing just an email address is boring. Want to segment your mailing list subscribers like a pro? Our MailChimp add-on allows you to capture any field in your form to use as a custom field in MailChimp.

      Powerful Opt-In Control
      Why clutter your MailChimp mailing lists with users who will never convert? Thanks to the raw power of Gravity Forms, you can now control which users opt into your mailing lists with just a few simple clicks.

      Double Opt-In
      Automatically send a double opt-in message to ensure only legitimate subscribers are added to your MailChimp mailing lists.

      GDPR Compliant
      Need your mailing list forms to be GDPR compliant? Thanks to the powerful conditional logic of Gravity Forms, making your subscription forms GDPR compliant is as simple as a few clicks.

      Conditional Logic

      Hi there, is there any news on this?

      Just want to say this is pretty much a deal breaker when using Forminator for us as every form we create has a question to join our mailing list at the bottom before the Submit button.

      It's an amazing form plugin, without a doubt, but I've already had to ditch it once last week in favour of a different plugin, and now I'm probably going to have to the do the same today.

      I really want to highlight that this feature is truly a huge oversight! You have to be able to have a user check a box or radio button to confirm (aka OPT-IN or OUT) that they have agreed to something and then conditionally have an action initiated, not just a mailing list signup, but it could be Terms and Conditions, or sending a different type or email or page redirect based on a segment determined by the form selections.

      Please consider pushing this to the top of the priority list ASAP because I really want to only use Forminator and only train clients to use one form plugin.

      Pretty please :slight_smile:

    BTW I found a bug in the Mailchimp Integration in Forminator.

    If you have more than 10+ lists in your Mailchimp account you will ONLY see 10 in the Forminator Integration dropdown where you can "Choose your list" that appears after you have successfully entered your API key. Any lists after the first 10 will not be shown or selectable.

    I have confirmed this is true and this was my workaround. My client had 12 lists in Mailchimp and I could not see the last 2 in the Forminator integration setup screen. But after I deleted 2 of the old lists from the Mailchimp account, so there were now only 10 lists, then all 10, including the 2 missing ones I could not see before appeared in the dropdown list and could be selected.

    I should probably post this somewhere more appropriate, can you let me know where and I will do so.

    Thanks!

    Hi Andrew

    Hope you are doing well.

    If you have more than 10+ lists in your Mailchimp account you will ONLY see 10 in the Forminator Integration dropdown where you can "Choose your list" that appears after you have successfully entered your API key. Any lists after the first 10 will not be shown or selectable.

    I can see this was already reported and the fix is being tested, please, keep eyes on Forminator changelog :slight_smile:

    Best Regards
