Connecting your WordPress form to Copper via App Connector

Tips, observations, and useful definitions
💡 App Connector creates a "Form Fill" activity automatically. Once a form is filled, a "Form Fill" activity is recorded including the submission details
💡 App Connector initiates web tracking from form fills. If you added the tracking code to the WordPress plugin, Outfunnel initiates web tracking from a form fill.
💡 App Connector creates a Lead in your CRM if a Lead does not yet exist. If you have Leads disabled a Person will be created. Data from all the fields will be synced over according to your field mapping.
💡 Existing fields are not updated. If the person or lead already exists, the fields will not be updated. The full form submission is available in the created activity.
💡 Edit settings any time. You can change these settings at any time by clicking on the Edit button on the Connection under App Connector.
Troubleshooting the connection
No forms show in the selector even if you have forms created.
This usually happens due to the following reasons:
- Your website or WordPress uses a firewall that blocks incoming requests that the app connector makes. Please whitelist IP 188.8.131.52 and Port 443 that the system uses to make requests.
- A WordPress plugin has disabled REST API that is used to query forms. These plugins are usually optimization plugins like Perfmatters. To resolve, simply enable REST API through the plugin settings.
Form submit activities are not created.
The App Connector creates the Form Submit activity automatically and records the activity under the contact that matches the email that was used in the form.
- If you don't see the activities, please ensure you have less than 25 activity types
