    This is a weird question but I'll give it a go.

    I use a third-party online email system (mad mini) for a maling list. I use their simple sign up form which takes the email filled in by a user and automatically put into a contact list online on their website.

    All our newslettes are sent from this provider and all mailing list sign ups and unsubscribe action happens automatically.

    My question.

    Is there a way of having the jotform email field send info (i.e. another email address) directly into this other providers contact list? Not sure what to ask this 3-party email provider, but from previous conversations with them they can't help with much.

    I have looked into a form within a form, and have tried to embed the 3-party 'sign up' form into my Jotform, which seems to work but it aint looking pretty.

    If the above makes sense, is this a question of coding or is there an easier way, I do have the full form code from the email sign up form but I don't know HTML ...

     

    Hope someone can help.

    Hi,

    Unfortunately, this is currently not possible with JotForm. We do have several other integrations with mailing list though like: Constant Contact, AWeber, MailChimp and Campaign Monitor these integrations does exactly what you are trying to achieve for Mad Mimi.

    I will try to submit this to our feature request list and hopefully, our developers can integrate this in the future.

    Thank you.

    Ah found a solution.

    Turns out it is actually possible.

    Switched bulk email provider to someone Jotform collaborates with and then:

    Ingrations Wizard choose Mail Chimp

    Now only the entered email on the form is sent directly to our mailing list and the whole form including the email field is sent (via the email alert notifications) to another email account.

    Perfect!
