Community Coach Insights: Using Video in Marketing Emails

More editing options for sign up forms

This form is not allowing us to customize the fields according to our needs. We want to add a field for people under certain age, a simple check box that's linked to one of our mailing lists, and we don't have that option right now.

I don't like the text "Email Lists" on my signup form and wish I could change it. The purpose of this form is to sign up for seminars. Yes, I will email the attendee, but the text on the signup form is misleading for the purpose of the form I'm using it for.

A coaching client of mine confided in me today, saying she feels she has resorted to using Leadpages ($400 per year) for her signup forms because CC's are so limiting in terms of customization. This was brought up as a pain point two years ago at ONECON. Is there a timeline in place for updating the signup forms so they are more customizable?

I'm not happy that I can't move the "Name" field on top of the email. It looks wonky. Is there any work around that?

I wish there was a way to ADD A TEXT BOX to this. As an example, I'm asking clients to sign up for a free voicemail message and I need them to send me the copy for their script. There is no way to use the "send it form" for how I need it, so I'm forced to use the "contact me" page from my website. Bummer...I hope this idea helps other clients of yours in the future.

Please make a scrolling signup bar, than goes across the site and is sticky.

I've also signed up for Leadpages because of CC's signup forms are limiting. I also notice there is an independant company who provide easier to use plugins just for CC but you have to pay for it.

I really miss the ability to download embedded code after creating a sign-up form. I was able to change the labels for the email lists because I have to label them in the system different from how I want them to be presented to the public. Please give us back the ability to edit the labels plus it would be nice to be able to add custom CSS. I am currently using your In-line forms since the change-over.

I just commented the same thing. Please hear us. This is a massive step back for you as a company.

This stops designers being able to design freely and developers building it.

I refer to sign-up forms; I think you call them inline forms that I can add to my website to get people to join my email list.  

 

1. When you no longer support a form, tell your clients.  I had to learn the hard way that you no longer support the form I was using.  My big promotion to get people to sign-up was a bust.

 

2. Make your new sign-up forms adjustable in size so that your clients don't have to completely re-design their website to accommodate your new form.
