    MailChimp confirmation email for submissions

    Asked by Amy on May 06, 2012 at 10:13 AM

    I have a JotForm form to collect names/emails for a mailing list.  I have created a MailChimp list for this and integrated my JotForm form with it.  It instantly placed all my JotForm submissions onto the MailChimp list I created.  Great!!  Now in testing new submissions, they are added to the MailChimp list as expected, but no confirmation action email is received by the submitter. I assume that I must make this happen and  I am sure I have to do something somewhere, but I am not sure where.  It looks like the set-ups within MailChimp are for when I have used and embedded one of their forms.  Can you guide me so that our subscribers receive their confirmation emails?

    Because this form collects names/email addresses for a mailing list, I want to have the submitter receive a confirmation email with a second opt-in button. It is not clear to me if I will be able to create a double opt-in confirmation email with the autoresponder.

    Hi,

    Can please clarify what is the "second opt-in" button is? Did you mean "option button"?

    The autoresponder email can be the confirmation email that the submitter can recieve.
    You can put a "button" on the email, but you can put a "link" instead. Add an instruction in the email message for the user to click on the "link" if you intend redirect them on another page, or data.

    Hope I provided you with appropriate answers. Please inform us if you still have more inquiry

    Thanks.
