Once we have our fields added in Mailchimp, we can set up our Form and then map the custom data to Mailchimp.
In the screenshot below we have a standard contact form, and I have added two extra fields, a Text Field Element, and a Date Field Element. Now we can map them to our Mailchimp contacts. This is done in the Form Options > Submission tab, as seen below.
The first step here is to make sure Avada Forms is connected with your Mailchimp account. See the How To Integrate Mailchimp With Avada Forms document for more information on how to do that.
Once your account is connected, head to the Form Options tab. Here, under Submission, your will see an Actions option. Select Mailchimp from the dropdown list.
You should then see a Mailchimp option set below this. If you edit this options set, you will see a Mailchimp Action option. Click on Create / Update Contact to continue.
Now, select the Mailchimp list you want to connect to. There are options for Mailchimp Tags, Opt-In preferences, and Form Consent, but the ones we want for this document are in the Mailchimp Mapping section. Note how there is now a Pet’s Name field, and a Pet’s Birth Date field.
These are the two field elements we added to the form. Now we just have to click on the dropdown here, and select the custom Mailchimp fields we added to map them to.
