Checkboxes for multiple lists (5 posts)

    I see quite a few threads on here requesting or attempting to use one form to add a user to multiple lists using checkboxes or dropdown.

    It doesn't look like it has been integrated into the plugin as of version: 2.1.3.

    Can anyone explain how to do this?

    Thanks

    Going to bump this topic. I would like to know the same thing. Is this possible?

    Another bump. I can't figure this out either.

    I can only sign up for one list and submit any custom fields captured with checkboxes. Then you have to manually view and add to other lists based upon the captured check box text. Katz's other plugin that used to work with CF7 had this capability, so I assumed I'd get it. This is not an acceptable workaround.

    $199 purchase of Gravity Forms, and no such luck. Very frustrating.

    Okay, I think I figured it out, but it would nice if there was a clear resource for instructions. It seems unnecessarily complicated though. Basically, you have to set up a Constant Contact Feed with an "Opt-in condition" for each checkbox you have.

    So, for example, I have three checkboxes that all pertain to a separate list in Constant Contact. List A, List B, List C (obviously, each list is named differently, so that's purely for illustration purposes).

    Set up a feed for each one, and capture that feed in the appropriate list. I capture first, last, and email. You have to set all of those on each feed. Then, each checkbox is captured with the custom text fields. Since I have three, I have to map each one to a different custom field. Plus, set up the Opt-in to match the Custom Field.

    Here is an example:

    List A
    1. Select appropriate CC List
    2. Select appropriate Gravity Form
    3. Map all fields you want to capture (Custom field 1 maps to List A, Custom field 2 maps to List B, etc. I didn't want to risk overwriting the custom field in CC, plus it will provide a record of it in each contact that is added under the Custom Field listing in a contact's profile)
    4. Enable Opt-in Condition
    5. Export to CC if untitled (leave this, mine didn't have any options) is (select your appropriate text in dropdown – all my custom text is named after each list I have to keep things simple). In this case, I'd select List A.

    [edit] You can probably skip Step 3, but it I don't think it hurts. It's up to you. This is because the Opt-in Condition ties directly to the dropdown menu which displays the checkbox options found in your form. I'm leaving mine for safety sake for now though. [edit]

    Repeat the above steps for each additional checkbox.

    Good luck! Hope it works for you too.

    In summary, I will have a CC feed in gravity forms for each one of my checkbox options right?

    I don't get any entries with constant contact though :(
