After installing the WPForms premium, you will need to verify the plugin with a valid license key. The license key can be found under your WPForms account. From your WPForms settings, you can check the key.
Now, you are good to go. You will get access to all their add-ons once you have verified the license key. The very next thing we need to do is install the ActiveCampaign add-on.
After the ActiveCampaign add-on installation, it will get activated automatically—no need to do anything manually. You are good to go. Now, it is time to create a new form, integrate ActiveCampaign.
You can create a brand new form or start editing the existing one. Anyway, WPForms comes with a premium feature called Form Templates. There, you will get pre-made custom forms. You don’t need to create a form from scratch. However, that’s optional. If you wish to create a new form, that’s good.
Choose a pre-made form or a blank form.
A newsletter signup form comes with two main fields.
If you wish, you can add a GDPR agreement field too.
Thankfully, WPForms comes with a drag and drop WordPress form building wizard. So, creating and editing forms might be pretty simple for all of us. If you have added a GDPR field to your form, you might want to go to your WPForms settings and enable the GDPR enhancements.
The next thing we need to do is integrate ActiveCampaign with WPForms. From the marketing tab, you can see all the available marketing add-ons on your website. After enabling the ActiveCampaign add-on from the WPForms add-ons section, we can see the same in the marketing tab.
You will need to add a new connection. A nickname for your connection is required. This is just for identification. It won’t be visible in the frontend of the website.
Log in to your ActiveCampaign account. With the API keys, you will be able to authorize the connection. From the developer section, you can get the API key and URL.
With these data, you will be able to link your ActiveCampaign account with your form.
From the dropdown, you can choose the account and action to perform. Conditional logic feature is also a good option for making your forms even more powerful. Once you have done everything, save the form.
Now, you are ready to embed the form on your WordPress website.
WPForms is also an optimized WordPress plugin for Gutenberg. So, you will be able to use the WPForms block for inserting forms to a page, post, or custom post type.
