Hi all,

I'd like to ask just the email address while tracking other Contact information in the background (e.g. interests based on the web page the Pop-up form is shown).

 

Any chance to use hidden fields in Pop Up form just like done in the Forms?

 

Thanks

Hi @Gens 

 

From my experience the Pop-up forms are limited in what you can do.

 

If you have Marketing Pro you could set up a Workflow that adds Contacts to a List based and/or set a Custom Property on Form Submission.

 

Alternately you could embed a HubSpot Form, with a hidden field, in another Pop-up widget (depending on your website).

 

What website Content Management System (CMS) do you use?

 

Which version of HubSpot do you use?

Hi Mike, 

 

thanks for your advice, I guess the HubSpot Workflow is the best solution unfortunately, my Hubspot Free plan doesn't support that; as a workaround, I've been used a ZAP workflow so far.

 

I was looking for a cleaner solution. 

As you suggest I may use a pop up plug in in my Wordpress website and embed a HubSpot Form in there.

 

Thanks

Hidden fields in pop-up forms should be standard functionality. Even with Marketing Enterprise the only solution is creating a workflow, which should be absolutely unnecessary. This is error prone and a waste of time. I hope HubSpot will fix this in the near future.

This is absolutely a fundamental flaw in the process. Creating a workflow is more work than necessary and, as pointed out, rife for errors.

 

Additionally, the option to NOT have a form on a popup would be ideal too.  Just a button and a notice. That increases the diversity of this tool 1000%

 

Shame...

I support this!

 

Unfortunately, it seems as the pop-up functionality is not given priority by the product development department. It's got such a great potential, but the fact that it lacks so many basic features, and has beeing so since it's arrival in HubSpot, is kinda frustrating..

I agree. I would love to see hidden fields incorporated into pop-up forms. This would be especially useful for pop-ups for things like event or webinar registrations.
