Contact Form / Open Mail Client


#1

Hi,

I have a contact form which works fine, 2 fields (Name / Email). Howver I would like to add an extra function when the user sends / submits, which opens the mail client so they can then send an email.

Any help on this would be brilliant.

Many thanks

Darren

Note - once you have skipped the landing page, the contact form is accessed in the social links bottom right.

You can just add a button and set the link as this: mailto:youremail@gmail.com

Hello @thinkrandom

Can’t really understand why you want this. Can you explain? Users will send an email to who?

@J_Canan Yea, but for example mailto: is not working for me. I’m using gmail. When I click on mailto link nothing happens.

I clicked it and it opens right up. That’s odd

Hi,

This is a client design and I actually like. Idea being if somebody is serious about contacting the company they will complete Name / Address which we will capture on submit. This will then open email client with subject and allow the user to make a detailed enquiry. Also should be an extra layer of spam protection.

Thanks

Hi,

There is already a button for the data capture form and I want this to happen on the same click. I did try to create a transparent button a while back but this did not work.

Did you achieve this and if so how?

Thanks

I’m just failing to see the logic here. What you have now is basically a subscription form. Alternatively for a native option instead of using javascript you can create an interaction.

Like the demo below…

I have a number of clients who prefer to have a contact us link opening the mail client instead of having a form on the site - number of benefits to this.

In this case, its what the designer specified and I can see some benefits to it.

However, I do like the idea that you have shown and I will potentially show this as an alternative.

Do you have a solution to the original idea?

Many thanks
