Subscription Update form

Marketing_Lite_Plus_Professional_Enterprise

The Subscription Update form lets you collect updated information from your contacts when they click a link in your campaign. In this article, you'll learn what a Subscription Update form is, how to edit this form, and how to add it to your campaign. 

How the Subscription Update form works

The Subscription Update form is list-based. You can add this form to a campaign with a personalization tag. When a contact receives your campaign, they will see a link to your form. 

When a contact clicks the link, they will see their information pre-populated in the form fields (if that information exists for them in your account). If any field appears blank for the contact, they do not have any information for that field in your account.  

Once a contact enters their information and clicks “Update,” their contact profile page will reflect those changes. The update will also appear under the “Recent Activities” stream.

You may want to use this form to ask contacts to update their information, such as email address, name, and any other information you're collecting in custom fields.
