Squarespace offers a powerful form builder, but storing the data is limited to a few basic options. Clients often need something a bit more sophisticated to integrate with Salesforce. We wrote a quick JavaScipt plug-in that allows any Squarespace form to be saved as a new Salesforce lead.
- Easy to setup using Salesforce's Web-to-Lead feature
- Compatible with standard lead fields and custom fields
- Once established, no code to write when editing forms
- Retains all existing Squarespace form features
- Squarespace site
- Salesforce account
To get started, log in to Squarespace and design your form. For best results, use the following fields names, which will be automatically mapped to Salesforce fields.
- Email Address
- Lead Source (hidden)
Don't forget to setup any standard Squarespace storage options and your confirmation message.
If you're using the standard platform, add this gist code (salesforce.js & site.js) somewhere on your site. If you're in developer mode, save the squarespace.js file to your scripts folder and add the contents of site.js somewhere appropriate.
Head over to Salesforce and navigate to the Web-to-Lead customization section, which can be found under Setup » Build » Customize » Leads » Web-to-Lead. From here you can edit who the lead creator will be, as well as create a new form; which is how we'll find out what the secret URL is we will post the form results to.
Click "Create Web-to-Lead Form" and then "Generate".
Don't worry about the fields, they don't matter.
