Client fills in the form on the website:

When the form is submitted you will receive a notification about it on the email address you entered in the corresponiding settings:

Moreover in your amoCRM account in Unqualified section of the pipeline you will see the request created from the submitted form:

Such unqualified request can be either accepted or declined:

  • To decline the request - point the mouse on the request and click on the red cross which will appear to the left. Declined unqualified leads will show up in Deleted leads in amoCRM.
  • accpet the request - that basically means create a new deal, it can be done in 2 ways:
    • point the mouse on the request and click on the green arrow - the request will then be assigned to the first status of the pipeline
    • simply drag and drop the request to the chosen status

When you accept an unqualified lead (drag and drop it to the chosen status), a new lead and contact will automatically be created in accordance with the field types chosen while creating a from in WordPress. Moreover, to such a lead a tag “Wordpress” will be assigned.

In case in the created form you have fields which you do not have in your amoCRM account, then once the data from the first submitted form is recevied, needed custom fields will be created in amoCRM. This rule is applied only to the first web form integrated with your amoCRM account. For the rest of the WordPress forms that you will integrate with amoCRM all the new fields (the ones you do not have in your amoCRM account) will be uploaded to amoCRM as notes to the lead/contact.
