Magnetic provides a very easy way of creating leads from a website form. Magnetic will process a form that sits on your website and redirects the user to a thank you page that you provide when they hit the submit button.

Setting up the form

Setting up your form requires you to simply ensure that you are using the correct field names that Magnetic is looking for.

Magnetic will process the form, then redirect the user back to a thank you page of your choosing.

To ensure that Magnetic processes your form correctly, you'll need to set your <form> tag correctly. See sample below.   


<form action="" type="POST">
<input type="hidden" name="companyId" value="1">
<input type="hidden" name="createOpportunity" value="true">
<input type="hidden" name="ownerEmail" value="">
<input type="hidden" name="followupDays" value="5">
<input type="hidden" name="tags" value="5">
<input type="hidden" name="tagsOpportunity" value="productx">
<input type="hidden" name="tagsContact" value="webform">
<input type="hidden" name="redirectUrl" value="">
<input type="hidden" name="343434" value="Value for custom field">
