Common questions for HTML Form

What is the "Encoding" option?

To display an HTML Form correctly, a web browser must know which character set (character encoding) to use. It's specified in the meta tag of the page.

The default character encoding for HTML5 is UTF-8. It works well in almost all cases and you may not change it unless you know you need a different charset.

Please note this is an advanced feature.

I received a timeout error, what should I do?

It means that your CRM/server didn't reply us after the seconds defined in the integration. By default, is set to 30 seconds, that is a huge response time.

You may increment this time range on your integration settings, however, you should check with your tool's support why the server went in timeout. Unfortunately, a timeout error depends on your CRM and not from LeadsBridge.

What are "Success Patterns" and "Failure Patterns"?

These "Success" and "Failure" patterns are your server's responses. This is optional so you may not worry about it unless you encounter errors on your sync.

To set up those patterns, you should enter the parameters based on your server responses. Since these responses don't depend on LeadsBridge, you may need the help of a tech guy.

Could you please help to set up the integration?

Yes, we are available to help you set it up, just send us the HTML embedded code or a webpage URL with the subscription form and will be a pleasure to help!

How do I add fields to the HTML form?

To add more fields to your HTML form, we suggest you edit the form on your tool's platform. Then, replace the HTML code inside your integration or create a new one, following the information above.

You may add fields within LeadsBridge by writing the HTML code manually, but your destination may not be configured to read the information properly. That's why we suggest editing your form first.
