I have come across a way to get the subscribers on my WordPress site into Zurmo.

 

First, we need to install the plugin Forms 7. (CF7)

Next, install the plugin '3rd Party Integration' 

https://wordpress.or...ty-integration/

 

This plugin will take the user-submitted data from CF7 and use the 3rd Party Integration plugin to pass it over to Zurmo via the REST API.

 

Seems to me, I'm not the only Zurmo user that thought of this approach. Please see:

https://wordpress.or...t-form-to-zurmo

 

So it can be done and would be a much better way to bring data into Zurmo instead of the JavaScript forms that Zurmo can create. I have shied away from that approach because the form loads terribly slow as many people reported.

 

Problem is my level of programming isn't up the challenge. Any PHP coders willing to figure this out?

 

We need to add the Zurmo authentication into the header information in the functions.php file in the 3rd Party integrations folder from what I understand. ala a file like "functions.zurmo.php"

We're uploading leads via an Excel form using a similar approach. The main issue we have is the need to maintain some of the lookups in 2 places which doesn't happen when using the web form so don't look at as a maintenance free solution.

I have a similar solution now. Contact Form 7 has a 3rd party plugin that will save the contacts to a database and you can download the contacts/leads as CSV and then import. But too much labor.

 

We need someone well verse in PHP and Rest API. This should be a piece of cake for anyone with the knowledge.
