Please can someone explain to me how I can use either a Contact Me Form or my own Wix Forms to create a contact form (which adds the sender to my Contact List), but which also has a checkbox for opting in to receive newsletters, so that the Contact in my Contact List has it's Subscriber Status set to 'Subscribed'?
The 'Get Subscribers' form sets the subscriber label but can't be extended to receive other fields, so that doesn't work.
The Wix Forms doesn't give the option of a checkbox at all. I could use a custom field with a radio button or dropdown with 'Yes/No' options; but this can't connect to the 'Subscriber status' of the Contact List - only my own custom field, so then I'd end up with 2 different fields relating to whether a person has subscribed or not, depending on whether they completed my custom contact form or whether they used the standard 'Get Subscribers' form.
With the new GDPR regulations (and previous data privacy regulations) this is something that most websites have to do - get explicit opt-in for their subscribers! The latest GDPR updates on the Wix emails have just given an example to create a form where the data all goes into a custom database - but that's not what I need... I need it integrated into the contact list form. I don't want my client (who isn't technical) to have to go in to the Wix Code and continually export databases, and reimport them into Contacts in order to use them for her ShoutOut messages, etc.
Am I missing something and being incredibly stupid?! Do I need to put some kind of custom HTML in the form to get it to connect up?!
Please help - I'm going round in circles trying to get this to work...
