In the field settings tab, set your preference by entering field label and field tag, set field visibility. The field tag name in MailChimp form must exactly match the standard contact field name in OnePageCRM as shown in the Mapping Tips section →  save.

    • Standard MailChimp form fields such as: "first name (fname)", "last name (lname)", "email", "phone", "website", "address", "country", "state" or "province", "zip" are automatically matched to the same name OnePageCRM contact fields.
    • If "name" MailChimp form field exists the first word will be mapped as first name and any words after this are considered as last name.
      • If the MailChimp form contains "last name" and "name" fields, first name is taken from the "name" field and the last name is taken from the "last name" field.
      • If the MailChimp form contains "first name" and "name" fields, first name is taken from the " first name" field and the last name is taken from the "name" field.
    • If you add a Text field and label it Company, Organisation or "Organization" in MailChimp, we will map that field to OnePageCRM's Organization field.
    • If you add a multi-line text field and label it "Background" in MailChimp, we will map that field to OnePageCRM's Background field.
    • If MailChimp form field tag and type in MailChimp has the same name and type as a Custom field in OnePageCRM, we will map them. For example Coupon (Single line) - MailChimp to Coupon (Single line) - OnePageCRM etc.
    • All other form fields that are matched to a non-existing OnePageCRM field are stored as a Note under the contact's timeline.
