ActiveCampaign Field Definition

We return a common set of ActiveCampaign properties for you to use within the form. You can set additional options for each field, such as Required or Hidden properties.

If you would like to use your ActiveCampaign Custom Fields, then click "Load Additional Fields" and add a new one simply by selecting "Add New Field".

Please note, we have added support for comma-separated Contact Tags and an Organization Name. Enter the name of a current Organization or a new name and it will be created. Be sure to mark these fields as HIDDEN so they don't show on the form!

Create Form

  1. If you are sending information that does not require a user to fill anything out make sure the hidden setting is checked. We have added a few hidden fields that are commonly used:
    • Current url (the url a user is on when they submit the form)
    • IP address (the visitor’s IP address)
    • Coupon code (the coupon code they receive in the post engagement)
    • Referring url (the url the user clicked on to get to the new page in your website.)
    • Previous Domain Referring URL (the url of the last page)
    • First url visitor landed on (the url the user first landed on)
