PropellerMail Subscribe Form - Now for Facebook!

01 December 2011

PropellerMail users have been able to enjoy the automated process of having a subscribe form on their websites since the service was launched.

With the rise of marketing over social networks many clients are delivering their message and engaging their clients via Facebook. The great news is that with our new app, PropellerMail users can now easily add a subscribe form to their Facebook page.

Subscribe App

The process is fairly straightforward > Add the app to your Facebook Page

Add accountWhen prompted simply enter ‘propellermail’ and your account login details.

The subscribe form apps support custom fields and can be managed using designer and client login credentials alike. While they’re fairly simple, we’ve made it possible to change the introductory text, subscribe confirmation message and tab name on your page's sidebar.

Making changes to the app

It's also possible to change the introductory text and subscribe confirmation message. In addition, you can change the client/list the form is linked to in an account. To do so after you've initially setup the app, go to your Facebook page, then click the 'Edit page' button. On the next page, click 'Apps' in the sidebar, then under 'Subscribe Form', click 'Go to application'. You can then go through the setup process again.

To change the default 'Subscribe to Newsletter' tab name on your page's sidebar, go through the steps above, but instead of clicking 'Go to application', click 'Edit settings'. In the 'Custom tab name' field, add a new name.

To remove the app, go to your Facebook page, then click the 'Edit page' button. On the next page, click 'Apps' in the sidebar, then click the 'X'€™ alongside '€˜Subscribe Form'€™. Then, go to Account Settings in your Facebook account (pictured), click 'Apps' in the sidebar and click the 'X' next to the app again. All account data stored in the app and forms will be deleted and most certainly won't be stored by Facebook. If you re-add the app, you will be asked to login and create your forms from scratch.

At present, only the page admin who added the app can make changes to a subscribe form (apart from deleting it). If you would like another admin to take control, then you will have to remove the app and all forms first, as per above. Same goes for using the app with another PropellerMail account.
