Custom form with email confirmation

Custom form with email confirmation



So happy to discover the Constant Contact API and this developer platform! These code samples for creating custom forms are awesome :


I noticed, however, that the form adds the new contact to the list directly, without having the person confirm by email. I think most people are used to this extra security step, making them feel reassured and in control of their subscriptions.


Any idea then on how to add that step to this great form? So that before the contact is added to the list, the person must first click a link received via email ?


thanks for your help!

Re: Custom form with email confirmation

Hey Connie,


What you would want to do is create the code on your server so that way when they submit it would send an email to them.  Then once the email is sent you can have it sent a link with a custom link.  That new link would go to the page where you would re enter the email and add whatever contact information you desire.


Let me know if you need anymore help.
