    Hi Annie,

    All settings for the form and Mail Poet integration are administered from the admin menu “Mail Poet” under Forms. There, you will see a list of feeds, or a link to create a new feed if none exist.

    When creating a new feed, you’ll select the form you’d like to use, then map the fields accordingly once they appear.

    Hope this helps.

    Hi B,

    Thanks, however I did all that but the item does not show up when editing that gravity form I assigned it to in the new created feed?

    Here you can see the feed I created ( not sure what to do with the fields? )

    So, seems I am doing what I am supposed to do, or not?

    Thanks,
    Annie

    Hi Annie,

    From your screenshot, everything looks fine. Although the First and Last Name fields in your newsletter will be populated with the Form Title upon submission. If you don’t have a name field in your form, I’d suggest just leaving those blank.

    What happens when you fill out and submit the form from the front end now? You should see a new addition to your list “Cursisten nieuwsbrief”.

    Let me know how the submission works for you.

    Hi B,

    Nope, here is the contactform: https://wordpress-online-cursus.nl/contact/
    and no option to subscribe to the mailpoet newsletter appears.

    Makes sense because I have no option to add it while editing this gravity form. It should appear in the list to add right? But it does not appear?

    Thanks,
    Annie

    I believe things are working as they should.

    The option to subscribe will only be present if you setup an option field on the form. Then, you’d need to modify the Mail Poet feed to optionally subscribe submissions. Currently, all submitted entries should be subscribed to your list.

    I just completed a test submission to your form, please check if my email address is on the Mail Poet list.

    Thanks, I will check it now.
    However I was under the impression that the sender needs to check the subscription first? otherwise they get subscribed without giving their permission which is not permitted by law in the Netherlands…

    Nope, you are not automatically added as a new newsletter subscriber!

    But the whole thing is, in the discription of your plugin it says that after installing the plugin and adding or creating a new feed, appointing this feed to the contactform of my choise, the option to add it when editing the gravity form should become available.

    This does not happen in my case?

    Thanks,
    Annie

    Hi Annie,

    I don’t recall that being anywhere the description of the plugin. Are you sure you have the right Gravity Forms Mail Poet plugin (there appears to be another: https://wordpress.org/plugins/mailpoet-gravity-forms-add-on/ )

    Either way, here are the steps needed to add the confirmation step of the subscription.

    First, add a checkbox, select or radio button field to your form.
    Next, navigate to the feed settings page (in the screenshot), and toggle “Opt-in Condition”
    Then, you should see options that you would like your field to match in order to have the entry be added to your newsletter.

    Following those steps will allow for only those entries to opt in to be added to your newsletter lists.

    Let me know how that works for you.

    Hi Brian,

    Correct, it does not say that in your description, sorry about that.
    I did first have the other plugin but deleted it and installed yours.

    I will try this later on, did not have a chance to experiment further.
    I will let you know how this went as soon as I know more.

    Thanks a lot for your help!
    Annie

    Hi Brian,

    Before I start trying the advice you gave me earlier, your plugin will not ADD an extra field below the contactform of gravity forms, that users first need to check to subscribe to the mailpoet newsletter?

    They will be subscribed without knowing they did?

    Your plugin only makes sure that everyone that fills in a contact form, immediately is subscribed to the mailing list?

    Thanks,
    Annie

    Hi Annie,

    You are correct, this plugin does not add an extra field to your form.

    Yes, they will be subscribed automatically.

    Once you have a Mail Poet feed setup for a form, when submitted, that entry will be added to your newsletter. If you would like have a checkbox that allows submissions to be added to new newsletter optionally, you can do so after creating an extra field in your form manually. Once that extra field is created, you can select the “Opt-in Condition” for that Mail Poet feed.

    Hope this helps, good luck!

    Hi Brian,

    Correct, I need a visitor to see an extra checkbox before the send button of the gravity contactform, and if checked, he/she will be subscribed to my newsletter. I will try to do as you advice and let you know if it worked.

    Thanks for your great support!

    B Hays is there plans to update the plugin to match GF’s updates to move addon options like this to the individual form settings menus?

    Hi Tevya,

    I do have plans to make those updates, however, those plans are still a ways out due to my schedule. In the meantime, the code is on github and I’m happy to accept pull requests if you want to help out.

    Thanks,

    Ben
