Mailchimp is an email list management tool and a CRM. It's used to keep track of audiences of any sort, be it clients, potential clients or content consumers.
When you connect your form to a Mailchimp list, each submission will add the email of the submitter to that list, along with the name, phone number and address if needed.
Before using the Mailchimp Plugin you must create a form to collect new submissions. Any HTML form will work. Additionally, you can use the following special named inputs to customize the card ticket.
Adding an input named "email", or alternatively "_replyto", will set the primary email of the new subscriber in your Mailchimp list. This is the only required property. If the same address gets submitted twice it will not be duplicated in the list.
<input name="email" />
Adding an input named "_name", or alternatively "name", will set the first and last names of the list subscriber that will be added. This is an optional field. If you want more control you can also use two inputs, one named "_fname" and the other "_lname" for first and last name respectively.
<input name="_name" />
Adding an input named "_phone" will set the phone number of the list subscriber that will be added. This is an optional field.
<input name="_phone" />
Adding an input named "_address" will set the street address of the list subscriber that will be added. This is an optional field.
<input name="_address" />
Connecting to Mailchimp
Once you've created and configured a form, you can connect to Mailchimp using the Mailchimp Plugin. To do so, first go to the Plugins tab of your form. Then click the Mailchimp Plugin button.
It will trigger a popup that will ask you to connect to your Mailchimp account (even if you're already logged to Mailchimp, they still ask you for your password):
Once you've signed, you'll be prompted to select the Mailchimp list that will be linked to this form:
In the future if you'd like to change the list or disable the plugin entirely, you can do so by clicking on the Mailchimp button again to adjust its settings.
