Contact Form is a WordPress plugin that allows you to easily create contact forms on your website.
They're feature-rich and you can select from 30+ data field types such as name, company, website URL, product category etc. You can also customize the form fields with any text, HTML or shortcode.
To install, in your WordPress dashboard, select Plugins > Add Plugin, search for Contact Form 7 and follow the onscreen prompts. You'll be set up and designing forms in minutes.

For this, you'll need to install another wordpress plugin. There are a couple of options, but we suggest this one.
Once installed, over in Zapier, create a zap and select "Webhook" as your trigger app and "Catch Hook" as the trigger event type. Zapier will give you a URL - you'll need this back over in WordPress.
Navigate to Contact > Contact Forms. Click on Edit next to your existing contact form and then click the Zapier tab to paste in the webhook URL from Zapier. Once you've saved your changes, your forms will now be synced with Zapier!
Submit some data to your form, then head back to Zapier and test your trigger. If all goes well, you'll see all your data fields ready to use in the rest of your zap.
This short video demonstrates the setup process:
Add form submissions to CRMs, such as Salesforce or HubSpot. This will allow you to track everything that comes into your business from a single dashboard.
We’ll send you a Slack notification when someone fills out your form. You can use this to prompt your team to quick action or just for curiosity's sake!
Add autoresponders using any of the SMS or email apps that Zapier supports. Or add them to your mailing list.
