Adding Custom Fields To Bloom Optin Forms

Adding custom fields to a Bloom optin allows you to create custom subscribe forms and collecting additional information from your subscribers.

Bloom supports various email providers. Within each email provider, you can create custom data fields that can store different pieces of information about your email subscribers. This data can then be used to segment your email lists or create email autoresponders. By default, all email providers support the following fields: Name & Email. If you want to collect additional information, you will need to configure new custom fields.

Once a custom column of information has been created for your list within your email provider, a custom field can be added to your email optin module. When a visitor fills out that custom field, the data they input will be saved to your list in the subscriber’s user profile within your email provider’s system.

Adding Custom Fields In Your Email Provider

Each email provider works differently. Before you can add custom fields to your optin form, you will first need to log in to your email provider account and create the custom fields that you would like to use. Please refer to the following directions for your email provider to learn how to create custom fields. After that, continue down the page for more instructions on how to add those fields to your Bloom optin.

Adding Pre-Defined Custom Fields

Most email providers will send Bloom all of your custom field data, and the optin options interface will be populated with a list of your available custom fields. Once you have added custom fields as described above, they will become available within the Design tab when you create or edit your optin form.

To add a new custom field, click the plus button and then choose your desired field from the Content > Field > Field dropdown menu.

You can then continue on to the Field Options to configure additional settings for your field. Here you can do things like add links to your input labels and re-organize field items.

Adding Manual Custom Fields

Some email providers do not send Divi your custom field data. For these providers, you must configure your fields manually. These providers include: Aweber, Mailster and MadMimi.

For these providers, you will need to choose which field type you would like to use to collect this specific piece of information. You can pick a field type after selecting your custom field.

Adding Links To Your Checkboxes

A common use of checkbox custom fields is to record consent for data privacy regulations like the GDPR. In these cases, you may wish to link to your privacy policy or terms of service from a checkbox field item. All checkboxes and radio buttons support custom links. To add a link to a given field item, simply click the link icon and add your link text and link URL:
