In this tutorial, you will learn how easy it is to set up a lead generation form in the Creative Factory. The main constituents of it are Fields, Checkboxes, and a Submit function. While showing how to install these, we will give you useful tips.
Which properties does a Field widget offer?
Three different types: Text, Email, and Phone, for being sent to an email address of your choice. The Email and Phone properties can be set to be required or verified. A message for the error alert can be typed in, in case the user tries to submit a form that has mistakes. A placeholder message for each of the fields is optional.
Which are the properties that can be set for a Checkbox?
Next to uploading an image to it, the Checkbox has the triggers ‘On Checked’, and ‘On Unchecked’ for causing all kinds of actions.
Which information are submitted to my email address?
The Submit function resembles a “send form” button that sends all the Fields and Checkboxes on the page as a single lead. Apart from your email address, the lead info appears also in the Campaign Manager.
How to make checking the Checkbox a prerequisite for submitting a Form?
You place a transparent visual widget over the Submit widget. On the Preferences Panel of the Checkbox widget, you navigate the Visual to disappear when the trigger ‘On Checked’ is carried out in the Checkbox. Thus, the Submit function gets uncovered.
