MailChimp and passing specific form data


#1

All of my client’s landing pages involve the visitor making a specific selection from the form. I’d like to see that form selection - which appears in the regular Unbounce list builder/email - passed to MailChimp. Is that something we can do now?


#2

Hi Roberta! I’m sorry, but currently we only pass along the name and email address to MailChimp. That said, custom field mapping is something we’re hoping to have done later this year!


#3

Hi Carl, that’s what I thought. Correct me if I’m wrong, but if I use Wufoo for my form I will be able to pass custom field into to MailChimp - correct?


#4

Hey Roberta, yes, as far as I know Wufoo does support additional fields in MailChimp (see http://wufoo.com/2010/06/24/improved-…). There’s just the caveat that you won’t be able to track the conversion. Soon though…


#5

Yep, it’s a toss-up. But I like the ‘soon’ part. :slight_smile:


#6

I understand the part about not tracking conversion, but will the ‘click’ still be recorded as part of the cvs file and/or have the info emailed like we do now?


#7

If you link to the Wufoo form, then yes, but if you embed the Wufoo form, then no. Assuming I’m understanding your question, that is…


#8

I was thinking of embedding the form directly - to eliminate the extra clicks. So if I embed, nothing gets recorded in Unbounce - correct?


#9

Yeah, that’s right. Now, as it turns out, I was looking at various methods of integrating Wufoo recently, and there is a bit of a hacked-up method that might work for you as long as your Wufoo form is dedicated for use on your Unbounce page…


#10

It would be dedicated. No other use. What’s the hack? I’m all screen. :slight_smile:


#11

Well, our conversion tracking just relies on hitting a particular URL, so you can include a tracking pixel on your Wufoo confirmation content. If your page is at "http://www.mydomain.com/my-page", you would include the following to trigger the conversion:

![](<a href=)http://www.mydomain.com/my-page/clkg/…" />

(Sorry, GetSat truncates the URL, you should be able to right-click copy it, or I can email you the code).

You just have to let me know which custom domain you want to try this with so I can manually copy up the “empty.pxl” file for you.

Note that this is really a temporary, untested, unsupported hack. It *should* work…

Worth a shot - could you email me the code?
