Adding New Fields to an Opt-In Form (Text Tutorial)

You can add as many fields as you want to an opt-in form, though you’ll want to keep the number of fields fairly low to ensure site visitors can easily join your list. You can use any of our 18 standard fields or create your own custom fields. 

To Add a Standard Field:

  1. Click the Add New Field button.
  2. Use the drop-down menu to choose whichever Standard Field you want to use.
  3. Check the “required” box if you want to make it a requirement for new a subscriber to fill out the field.
  4. Give the field a “Form Label.” This is the name the field will have on the form itself (this does not need to match the actual name of the field).
  5. This field should immediately appear on the Form Preview to the far right of the Design Your Form section.

To Add a Custom Field:

  1. Click the Add New Field button.
  2. Use the drop-down menu to choose the “Custom” option.
  3. Enter a name for your field. This will be the name for the field within your account.
  4. Check the “required” box if you want to make it a requirement for a new subscriber to fill out the field.
  5. Choose whether you’d like to make the field a text field or a checkbox.
  6. Give the field a “Form Label.” This is the name the field will have on the form itself (this does not need to match the actual name of the field).
  7. This field should immediately appear on the Form Preview to the far right of the Design Your Form section.

In addition to the above, you can use the Action options to the right of each field to delete them or move them up / down.
