Auto Post Form Responses

JotForm also supports autoresponder email, which can be used in conjunction with the WordPress.com Post by Email feature to automatically post forms to your site.

Using a customized Sender Email instead of the default JotForm ones might prevent Post by Email to work correctly.

Integrating JotForm with Mailchimp

If you want to capture visitor information into a mailing list and would rather have an embedded form in a widget, instead of the Mailchimp subscriber pop up, or the Mailchimp block, you can integrate Mailchimp with JotForm.

Integrating Mailchimp with JotForm allows you to embed a JotForm form in a widget and the information collected will be sent to your Mailchimp list.

Once you have created the JotForm form, click on Settings and then Integrations.
