    Asked on July 12, 2012 at 04:20 PM

    I am trying to Intergrate Jotform to automatically send out an autoresponder campaign. I have spoken with them several times and maybe you can explain this a little better. Here is the email...

     


    Chris Parker, Jul 12 01:41 pm (EDT): 

    Can I intergrate Jotform with Jangomail? I would like to automatically have our volunteers on Jango's list after filling out a Form.

    Steve Callan, Jul 12 01:51 pm (EDT): 

    Hello Chris,

    You can create an opt-in form for your website, where after a user submits his information, the email address (and other fields, up to you) is added to a list within your account. Please see:

    https://www.jangomail.com/documents/Public/JangoMail_Tutorial_Web_Opt-In_Form.pdf

    You can also capture the fields on your site and pass in the values using our API:

    api.jangomail.com
    https://www.jangomail.com/documents/Public/JangoMail_Tutorial_API.pdf

    Is that what you are looking for?

    Chris Parker, Jul 12 02:54 pm (EDT):

    I already have them filling out one form, I dont like the idea of asking
    them to fill out another one. The api is a little over my head. Do you have
    a more specific user guide?
    -Chris

    Steve Callan, Jul 12 03:52 pm (EDT):

    Hello Chris,

    Then your option is to modify the code on your page and use the API to post/submit the addition of an address to your account. You either do it with the code on your page then and there or when the user finishes whatever on your page (and going to where you have now stored the new address), do the add to the list action from there.

    You can do a couple of things when a user signs up - send a welcome email, and add the address to the list. The first thing you would do is add the member to the list, and then have the list set up to automatically send a transaction message (a single message) to that person.

    See the page here for how to add a group/list member:

    http://api.jangomail.com/api.asmx?op=AddGroupMemberString

    The minimum piece of information is the emailaddress (aside from what you have to input for the account info).

    The autoresponder for the list would then fire off the welcome email message.

    Thank you for contacting us.

    I have created an integration feature request ticket and forwarded it to our Development Team. However, our Developers are extremely busy, so that I can not say when or if this request will be processed.

    In the meantime, you can use JangoMail's Auto-Subscribe feature:

    http://www.jangomail.com/features/featuresubscribe.htm

    http://www.byelverton.net/Portfolio/OnlineManual.pdf

    Example:

    Create an Email Notification with subscribe subject.

    Sender E-mail: form email field

    Recipient E-mail: your_account_username@jangomail.com

    If you need any further assistance, please let us know.

    Thank you so much for the reply. That is a lot more simple then what they were trying to tell me, but there is only one problem. I have multiple forms that  volunteers fill out, and multiple lists in Jangomail depending on which form they fill out. Anything you can think of would be very helpful.

    @Free4good4

    Following the guide suggested by my colleague, your form's notification (separate notification, dedicated for JangoMail) should probably have a subject line "subscribe ListName[or GroupName]".

    For example:

    A contact form's notification should have a subject line "subscribe JotForm-Contact" to be added to the list or group named "JotForm-Contact".

    Thank you for all your help! You support team is much more informative than Jangomail. I do have one more problem relating to this issue.

    When I send the Sbuscribe Notification, the Name of the volunteer does not show up in Jangomail. What I am trying to do is have the autoresponder feature automatically put in "Dear %%Firstname%%". On the form I am using the "Quick tools - Full Name" field in the form.

    Also, you can remove this message from being private, because it may help someone with the same problem later.

    @Free4good4

    You can easily setup that in the autoresponder template

    Like for example, on this screen you see "Nice to hear from you, {fullName3:first} in the Subject line

    You can do the same IN THE BODY area. By clicking the field name on the right hand side list

    So you will use "Dear {fullName3:first}"  and it will show as  "Dear John" ('cause it will take just the first name of the full name field)


     

    Of course the number of the field might vary , depending on each particular form

    Should you need further assistance, let us know, we are always glad to assist!

    I understand that... but I need a way for Jangomail to receive the full name.

    In that case, just remove "first" {fullName3:first} and it will be displayed the full name. Also, you can setup for the autoresponder a conditional logic (choose "send an email after submission")  , in order to send it to your user's mail  and to jangomail aswell

     

    Cheers!

    I am sorry to inform you, but I am not sure if that is possible to forward any more information than Email address to the JangoMail using their Subscribe by email feature. You may try to contact them to check if there is any way to do this. We can help with Notification customization if needed.

    You should be able to forward any form fields once the integration (based on their API) is implemented by our Developers, but unfortunately, there is no ETA for now. That integration is marked as nice to do.

    Thank you for using our services.

    Ok, I have wrote Jangomail, and of course they have wrote back talking foreign language to me. I would greatly appreciate any help translating what their email means.  Here is the email...

    Okay, let's clarify the direction you're writing about - someone signing up on your site and having their information passed back to us (i.e., inserted into a list) versus your last post of sending a message with firstname personalization in it.

    For inserting into your list stored in JangoMail, and you are using JotForm - figure out the modifications on JotForm so that you can pass the information to us. You can use the API to do this (see api.jangomail.com, your form would call our API method to add a member to a list), or take the generated code from the web opt-in form, extract the form action/post that passes back the emailaddress and any other fields you care to include, and embed that code in your web page/sign-up form created using JotForm.

    http://www.jotform.com/help/chapter-4-Form+Emails

    If you look at the page source of jangodemo.com, it is roughly this section/portion of the page:

    <img src="http://www.jangomail.com/et/a.z?UID=832833">

    <input type="hidden" name="optinform$txtUniqueID" id="optinform_txtUniqueID" value="6df287fd-7c26-4e4d-896e-d92fb00d42df" />

    <div Class=OptInForm>
    <div class=OptInWrapper>
    <div Class=OptInTitle>Jangodemo opt-in form</div>
    <div style="padding:20px;">

    <p class=header></p>
    <div id="optinform_pnlFields">
    <div class="Field">
    <span class="required">Email Address</span><input name="optinform$Field0" type="text" id="optinform_Field0" class="text" />
    </div><div class="Field">
    <span>FirstName</span><input name="optinform$Field302196776" type="text" id="optinform_Field302196776" class="text" />
    </div><div class="Field">
    <span>LastName</span><input name="optinform$Field302196788" type="text" id="optinform_Field302196788" class="text" />
    </div>
    </div>
    <p class=footer></p>
    <p><input name="optinform$btnSubscribe" type="submit" id="optinform_btnSubscribe" Class="subscribeButton" value="Subscribe to list" /></p>


    </div>
    </div>
    </div>

    </form>

     

    For sending to someone using personalization -

    To reference the first name in your message or subject, you enclose the field name with two per cent symbols. So, your subject can be:

    Special offer for %%firstname%%

    In the body of your message, you can use the field again (note you can use a comma or other text right after the closing %%):

    Hello %%firstname%%,

    Here is some information in our tutorials:

    https://www.jangomail.com/documents/Public/JangoMail_Tutorial_Groups.pdf
    https://www.jangomail.com/documents/Public/JangoMail_Tutorial_Personalization.pdf

    To extend the example a bit, using an address and a dealership, you could have a list with the address, first name, dealer name & phone, and dealer location. Your message body could be:

    Hello %%firstname%%,

    It is time to service your car. Contact your dealer, %%dealername%%, at %%dealerphone%%, or take your car to %%dealerlocation%%.
    We look forward to seeing you, %%firstname%%.

    The list would have fieldnames of emailaddress (which it does by default), firstname, dealername, dealerphone, and dealerlocation.

    You can also substitute in a default value for firstname if the value is blank (like what the tutorial shows, "Valued Customer" or whatever you'd like).

    They are talking about API integration method, and the second method which is based on embedding their opt-in form code into JotForm form.

    I do not think that the second embedding method will work with our set up.

    As soon as mentioned API integration method will be implemented by our Developers, we will let you know (but still there is no ETA).

    In the meantime, you may ask Jangomail Support if there is any way to forward First Name and Last Name fields to Email List using their Subscribe by E-mail feature.

    Thank you for cooperation.

    Has there been any progress made on joining forces with Jangomail? I spoke with Jangomail and they said it would be a good idea to stay in touch with both sides. They are also looking into the integration.

    Thanks

    Hi Free4good4, the ticket for the Feature Request that you mention has been opened and assigned to our development team and even though we would like to make the additions that our user request, our development team is quite busy and that is the reason we can not give you an ETA on the request.  We will keep you posted with any updates on the matter. Thanks again for your feedback!
