    Jotformpro checkbox values and integrating with MailChimp

    Asked by BradMavin on July 17, 2014 at 11:54 AM

    Good Morning,


    I have created several great forms with jotformpro that do exactly what I want. I am asking people to subscribe to a daily email list that send them daily book deals. The form is simple; has a spot for email address, required, a checkbox field with a list of different fiction genres to choose from and a checkbox field with a list of different nonfiction genres to choose from. I have it currently syncing to mailchimp so I can capture the email, however, I need to be able to collect the genres the people signing up choose. I can't seem to get this to work on mailchimp. I tried using their radio buttons with all the same categories but if I choose more than 1 field on the jotformpro form it gets an error. I don't see an option for checkbox data on mailchimp.  Please help!

    I think this can be solved by establishing the genres as a group, this is available on our MailChimp Integration. Just create a group on Mail Chimp  choose Checkboxes it should then be available on the integration wizard under lists. See the following example.
