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.
Thanks for posting!
It would be nice to be able to add drop-down lists to the sign-up form instead of just fields.
I have found that new subcribers who enter thier email in sometimes enter it in wrong. I would love to have the option to add this option on the sign up tools so the "ask for email again to confirm" could be added just like the information for address and phone can be added. we just started using CC and I have had 3 bounces from people I don't know and I can't get ahold of them to try to change thier email. I think it looks bad from me because they are expecting communication from me but they don't get it and they won't know that it is becuase they entered in a wrong email. Thank you for considering this!!!!!
See my photo above. You have the "confirm email address" when someone Registers for an event. Please add this to the Sign Up Forms as well to help with bounce back emails .
To comply with CASL, we need an easy way to determine which contacts are located in Canada. As it stands, it takes me several hours to export a list of contacts and scour the data to try and figure out who may or may not be from Canada.
The sign-up form does have the option of requiring an address (which included Country) from new enrollees. But the majority of people are hesitiant to give their full physical address, especially when signing up for an e-newsletter.
Can the tool be updated to allow me to require *Country* during sign-up, without requiring a complete physical address? This would make it a very easy to then determine which contacts are affected by CASL.
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?
Thank you for the feedback @DavidB82768!
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.
By removing the option to use an embedded sign-up form on a website, you've also removed the web designers ability to customize the look of the form to fit in with the rest of the websites design. This is incredibly unfortunate and frustrating. Also, Constant Contact is now forcing their brand on the new sign-up forms unless folks upgrade to the Email Plus package, just so they can increase their profitability...really?
I loved having the ability to customize the look of a form. But now that this feature is gone, it makes me incredibly disappointed in Constant Contact. Please bring this option back.
It would be extremely useful to have more editing options for customizing Pop Up Forms including ability to insert small images(for making word art), addling links, and more font choices.
Other than that, it is a great feature!
I want to be able to control the order that my questions appear on a sign-up form, but I have not found anyway to do it. It doesn't make sense to have them in random order and not grouped by topic.
I agree with both comments. A simple embed code that allows adding placeholder text, changing or removing form labels, and is not changed by the mandatory universal script would sure be nice.
Please have developers add in this option.
I am a 16 year CC user but had bought into AWeber a decade ago JUST for their pop up sign up form. I was right on the verge of dropping CC and moving all to AWeber when CC came out with this new form...... which is GREAT. I have now dropped AWeber.
BUT............. it's a boring and extremely limited design on CC's part and I'd like to know what (if any) future upgrades are in the works. I will post two photos of an AWeber and a CC pop up sign up form. CC's is not even close to the visually appealing AWeber design. Just to get the text aligned center on CC's.... I had to use (.) periods and text spaces. Pretty sad and I almost still dropped CC in favor of AWeber. But, CC is where I want to be.
Thoughts and Ideas Please,
Thank you for submitting this feedback! We don't quite have a time frame on when new additions will be added to the pop-up forms but I've passed this along to our engineers and we are always looking for ideas to implement and improve!
PLEEEEEASE give us access to the css so we can customize the website sign up form!
Fonts, sizes, box sizes, etc.
Don't force us to use yet another 3rd party!
Seconded. Having the same trouble here. Very disappointed there's no capability to rearrange form field order.
Hey @Michele-UVMCMIE and @StephenW498, thanks for the feedback! I can totally see how being able to reorder the fields in your signup form would be helpful and I've gone ahead and opened this idea up for voting. Make sure to "Kudo" this post if you agree with this idea! Thanks again for sharing this feedback!
All field forms are 'moveable'
Add a Text field or a Question Field
Label the field i.e. Middle Initial:
To the far right there is a column titled - Rearrange your selected fields (and sections):
Find the Middle Initial:
Using the icons to the right click on the Arrow Up or Arrow Down to move the Middle Initial between First Name: and Last Name.
The forms are easy to use, but the functionality is very limited. Having multi-select fields (such as check boxes, ie check all that apply), and drop down menus (allowing the lead generation to then be quantified and customized) would be extrememly advantageous. In essence for us, this type form to capture the pertinent information is absolutely necessary. In our environment collecting information is vital to the success of our online publications. We are going to attempt a work around with WordPress, but without this functionality we will be forced to move to a different marketing automation tool.
Hello @TanyaH98,Thank you for taking the time to submit your feedback on this. I too think it would be a great idea for us to include these features on our sign up forms. I want to open this idea up to voting so others like yourself can vote on this idea. Are you familiar with our Marketplace at all? This is where different third parties create integrations that work with Constant Contact. You may be able to find an alternative sign up form you can use here.
Hello @JrgenL1, Thanks for submitting a great idea! I'll be opening it up to voting so others can vote and comment on it as well.
I also would find multi-select fields and drop down menus extremely welcomed.
