    I integrated my email address list with mail chimp but I don't understand how to get the jotform sent out to those email addresses.  Can you help Me?  I have a list of over 600. 

    If I copy and past the jotform in a mailchimp newsletter will the form work?  

    Obviously I'm technically challenge as far as these form go but I have four to get sent out very quickly.  Maybe this doesn't even work like I thought it did. I thought you could just publish this form and sent it out to people on my list.  I I"m thinking from what I reading now is that it has to appear as a UrL on a website or in a newsletter.  You can't just email the form to a list?

    Thanks Sheron Chisholm

    First off, here's a guide on how to integrate form to MailChimp.

    http://www.jotform.com/help/163-How-to-Integrate-with-MailChimp

    So basically, you have to map the fields like name and email in the MailChimp integration so when the form is submitted, a copy of the form data will be sent to your MailChimp contact list.

    If you have existing data in your form, they will be automatically forwarded to MailChimp once you check the "Add existing contacts to MailChimp" option on the integration wizard.

    You're about sending the form URL to your users, you just have to publish the form, take the form URL and send it to your users. You can also add the form URL to your newsletters if you have any.
