    Hi,
    I love contact form 7, and I use it to handle enquiries, however I want it to integrate with capsule CRM and I have been a struggle.

    this is the code which I need to include in the contact form to work
    <form action="https://service.capsulecrm.com/service/newlead" method="post">
    <input type="hidden" name="FORM_ID" value="e45dc5cd-cf25-4179-ae1a-18a684b7a573">

    I have added this code in the form itself, and as well in the additional settings section and it still doesn't work:( very frustrating. If anyone could help it would be much appreciated

    I am looking for a solution to this as well.

    I have installed Contact Form 7 Modules to add hidden fields, but I would like to know how to change the form action url.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    there is a plugin, unfortunately it does not work for me. However you may have some luck with it.

    you could probably use the Custom Contact Forms Plugin. It allows you to set the form action. I'm not sure if there are hidden fields or not, i cant use it because it conflicts with my theme.

    have you tried or contactme.com before? I am not sure what to do, because so far CapsuleCRM is not allowing me to do what I need to

    Hi Allison,
    Any progress on your end? I have posted a new thread as the only thing which needs changing is the action form.

    Sorry still no luck on my end, and I have been trying!

    I went so far as to completely redesign my site so I could get the custom contact form plugin to work, I added all the fields, and it still didn't work!

    I've left feedback for capsule crm, sent them emails, I might just have to create a seperate page outside of wordpress install, or perhaps use an html embed plugin or iframe or... i dunno!

    Hey, have you thought of using MM Forms or TDO Mini Forms which can both post your form info directly to the database?

    If you're interested in a workaround - I just use a 2nd email to send into capsule. Works fine.

    2nd email is like this:
    To: fwd-to-capsule@example.com
    (I set up an email fwd that goes to the dropbox email addr, as CF7 needs to have an @example.com that matches the site domain)

    From: my-email@example.com
    (so capsule thinks it's a message I fwd in)

    Subject:
    From: [your-name] <[your-email]>
    Subject: [your-subject]
    [your-message]

    (so it takes in the info from the email)

    I guess I could of created a web form user in capsule and used that email, so it's clearer when it's a form email rather than me, but it works.

    Hi.
    thanks a lot. I tried earlier but it didn't work, although I am guessing I am a bit too tired for any technical work. I ll try tomorrow again although it seems like a smart fix.

    I'm trying to do it by hand- using the instructions from settings/integration/website.setup.seam

    So far- I can add custom fields- but their behavior has been wonky. It would be great if Capsule offered better examples.
