Adding/updating a contact directly to your Google account from your WordPress forms comes with many advantages. It lets you access the contact details on other Google products like Gmail, etc., and you won’t need to search for the form entries to reach out to your customers. Adding them to a specific group will help you organize your business contacts.
If you want to do the same but wondering how to do it? No worries, it’s easy with the Pie Forms Pabbly add-on. This tutorial will show you how to add the contact details to your Google account right after anyone submits a form.
Install And Activate
Before getting started, ensure the Pie Forms drag and drop form builder plugin is installed and activated on your website. Next, install and activate the Pie Forms Pabbly Connect addon on your dashboard. If you are using Pie Forms Premium, you only have to activate the add-on. The license key is not required. Basic users will need the License key.
Create A Workflow
After activation, log into your Pabbly account, create a new Workflow, name it, and set up the Trigger part.
After selecting the trigger event, you will see a Webhook URL to use in your form settings. Copy the URL, go to Pie Forms>> New Form, or edit an existing one. Check our step-by-step guide to help you create your first form.
Next, go to Form Settings>>Pabbly Settings. Mark the checkbox to enable Pabbly. Paste the URL in the first field and select the Request Method as POST and Request Format as JSON. Save the settings.
To test your form, fill in the form and submit it, and you will see the entries updated on your Pabbly dashboard.
Use Case: Adding leads to your Google Contacts directly after form submissions will save time and keep all the contacts organized for a quick view. With the Pabbly Connect addon by Pie Forms, every time a user fills in the contact form, the contact details will be updated directly on Google. No manual work is required!
Set An Action Event
When your trigger is set, add a third-party application for action. For our tutorial, we will use Google Contacts as a connecting application. Select the event as Create Contact as we want to add new customers/leads to your Google contacts.
Next, connect your google account to allow Pabbly to access it.
After connecting your account, set up the action part, and select the fields you want to add the details of. Test the action and see the contact details added to your Google Account.
As we added only five fields of name, id, email, web URL, and phone in the setup action, we can only see these five data. This is how you can save time and add new users or leads to your contact list without the hassle of adding them manually. Want direct file uploads on Google Drive after form submission?
