Setting up a Newsletter

When you have to set up a newsletter feed you need to start by setting up MailChimp (MC) on the website.

  1. Firstly go to plugins and turn on or install the plugin Gravity Forms MailChimp Add-On (see screenshot below) if it isn’t already.
  2. Next we have to setup the MailChimp API. You can check how to do that here.
  3. When that is done, Copy the API into Forms > Settings > MailChimp.

Now we have to create a subscription form so they are automatically sent out mail.

  1. Create a new form using gravity forms with input fields, Name (First and Last names) and Email.
  2. Setup a Thank you page to be redirected to when they have signed up.
    • this should have a friendly title, a nice picture that suits the website and a short thank you message.
  3. Setup the notifications and confirmations like you would in other forms. Which can be found how to do here
  4. When that is all done, go to Forms > MailChimp > Add New
  5. choose the subscription form we just setup and place the corresponding fields into the correct place.
  6. make sure “Double opt in” and “Opt in condition” are unchecked.
  7. Test the form.
  8. Congratulations! you have just finished setting up a Newsletter subscription.
