Form submission arrays

There’s a pretty nifty trick to group form elements in a way the form submission is formatted as an array.

The problem is, Webflow doesn’t respect the formatting.
I’ve tried using the Webflow default form action - doesn’t work - and using a custom webhook - worked.

For example, if you have a form:

Person 1:
First name
Email

Person 2:
First name
Email

If you name your form fields like the following:

Person 1:
<label>First name</label>
<input name="people[1][first_name]">

<label>Email</label>
<input name="people[1][email]">

Person 2:
<label>First name</label>
<input name="people[2][first_name]">

<label>Email</label>
<input name="people[2][email]">

The form submission will be formatted as an array and it’s going to be much easier to parse.

people = [
    [
        'first_name' => 'Jim',
        'email' => 'jim@barber.com
    ],
    [
        'first_name' => 'Amira',
        'email' => 'amira@sayegh.com
    ]
]
