Automate adding email address submitted through Squarespace form, to a Squarespace mailing list

Go to solution Solved by paul2009,

Hi - I'm trying to figure out how to take an email submitted through a form (not a newsletter), and have it automatically added to one of my Squarespace mailing lists. So when someone submits a form through my site, it automatically adds them to my mailing list. 

I can't seem to find an specific option for this within Squarespace settings - has anyone successfully accomplished this?

Thanks!

Email Campaigns storage is not available for Form Blocks yet. It is available for

  • Newsletter blocks
  • Newsletter signup at checkout
  • Promotional pop-ups
  • Cover page newsletter signup (on version 7.0)

Squarespace have just added this feature! When you add an email field for a form block and make it ‘required’, a new “Email Signup” option appears.

Thanks for the response Paul. 

Are you familiar with any workaround using Zapier etc?

It isn't possible to automate this currently because the Profiles API only has a GET method not a POST.  No external services can therefore add mailing list subscribers.

Hi @paul2009, thanks for the helpful answer as always. Just wanted to double check - is this limitation still currently in effect? It seems that way based on what I am seeing within my site and also from the other more recent Squarespace forum thread here, but you tend to be the authority on here so I was hoping to double check with you 🙂. I know it is impossible to say for sure, but do you see this feature being addressed in a future release I hope?

Thank you in advance!

Hi @courseseller19. Thanks for your comments. This thread is old (2022) and therefore predates the launch of this feature. Squarespace added this feature in July 2023. I posted about it here:

Thanks Paul for the helpful reply as always. Apologies if I am being dense, but one more follow up question if I may - on my home page, I have a Newsletter block where visitors input their name/email address. Assuming a website visitor provides their information, I am able to automatically add them not only to my Contacts but also a mailing list (let's call it "Newsletter") of my choice upon them filling out this form (screenshot attached).

However, on my Contact page, I have a custom form that includes a required email address field, and I have the "Email Signup" option toggled on so that visitors can sign up for news/updates from this form too. However, in the Storage settings for this custom form block (screenshot attached for this too - note my email is in there currently but I hid it in the screenshot for privacy purposes), I don't see a way to automatically add visitors who fill in the "Sign up for news and updates" checkbox to a specific mailing list (such as the same "Newsletter" mailing list from above). I do know that they are automatically added to my general "Contacts" listing. Am I missing something?
