How we use form fields in Populo
There are a number of form fields in the Contensis forms builder broken down into Standard, User Details and Advanced groupings. Data entered into a Contensis form field can be mapped to fields in Populo to be made available via the Contacts API.
The mappings are determined by the Field Type property set under Field Settings in the forms builder. We’ve setup some default mappings for the predefined fields in the forms builder to start capturing data in your existing forms.
It’s possible to change these mappings and we encourage you to review each of the forms used on your website to ensure you are capturing clean data
