Messages List

The messages list helps to check the past contact form submissions and print or export them. Includes a search/filter form with the following options:

  • Search for: Search for a text into the contact form messages.
  • From ... to: Date interval to be included in the list/reports.
  • Item: You can have more than one contact form. Select here if you want to get the results of a specific contact form or from all contact forms.
  • Filter: Shows the list according to the selected filters/options.
  • Export to CSV: Export the CSV data according to the selected filters/options.

The CSV file will contain a first row with the field names and the next rows will contain one contact form submission per row, with one for field on each column. This way you can easily import the data from other applications or just select the columns/fields that you need (example: select only the emails). A CSV file can be opened and managed using Excel.

The list of contact form messages is shown below the search area. A print button below the list provides the messages list in a printable format.

The Contact Form Reports

The reports section lets you analyze the use of the contact forms and the data entered into them. The first section of the reports is a filter section similar to the one that appears in the messages list page. Below the filters section there are three graphical reports:

  • Submissions per day: The report will display in point-lines graphic how many contact form submissions have been received each day in the selected date range. This report can be used to evaluate the contact form peaks and measure the impact of marketing actions.

  • Submissions per hour: The report will display in a point-lines graphic how many contact form messages are received on each hour of the date; this is for the total messages in the selected date range. This report can be used for checking peak hours and focus the support service on those hours.

  • Report of values for a selected field: Select any of the contact form fields and other information fields (like date, ip, hours) to get a report of how many times each value have been entered or selected. This is very useful if you form is used as a poll to get feedback from users, it makes easy to generate a report on selectable contact form fields. This report can be used also to study the most common data entered in the contact form and get a better idea of your customer's profile and needs.

A print button at the end of the page can be used to print the report of the values for the selected contact form field in a printer-friendly format.

Automatic Email Reports

The Contact Form to Email plugin allows the setup of two types of automatic (periodical) Email reports:

  • Global Email Reports: Can be setup below the list of forms. This report sends a report with the new submissions of all forms every the specified number of days.

  • Form Email Reports: Can be setup on the settings page of each form. This report sends a report with the new submissions of the related form every the specified number of days.

The reports are attached in a CSV / Excel file into the emails. In both cases the destination email addresses, email subject, email text and the report's interval can be specified. More info available in the section "Other Notes".
