The Webform wizard allows contacts to opt-in to a campaign while also allowing you to collect additional data about the contacts. 

To create a webform, you must first go to your Database Settings and make sure that all of your settings are correct and all necessary fields are active. (When you create a webform it only pulls in database fields that are active)

Step 5.

To modify the aesthetics of your webform click the + to expand the Design Your Form tab. Each section listed (Header, Form Labels, Form Fields, Submit Button, Background) has its own set of features that can be modified.

Note: You MUST click the Save Changes button within each section so that all of the modifications you make are saved correctly. 

Adding Images: If you want to add an image to your webform you must first take the size of the image into consideration. Because Webforms can be designed for any size display, the Webform wizard does NOT resize images. Any resizing must be done PRIOR to uploading the image. Once that is done, click the View Images upload icon.

Then, click the Browse button to upload your image. Each image uploaded is given an image ID tag (ex: ~img1~). You MUST copy the corresponding tag and paste it in the header or footer section where you would like the image to appear.

Step 6.

In order for your web form to generate an opt-in to a campaign, click the + to expand the Select Mobile Campaign menu. To make sure that your customer opts into the correct campaign select one or more of the keywords in this section. Providing 1 option, a Webform submission will automatically opt your customer in to that particular keyword. By providing multiple keywords, the Webform will display a set of checkboxes that your contact can choose from and potentially opt in to more than 1 campaign. Once you’ve selected your keyword click Save Changes to save the settings.
