I would like to be notified via Slack when a contact form is submitted on our wordpress site.  I’ve been successful at this via a Webhook, but I have been unable to include the form data in the post.  help?  

 

Below is a screenshot of the Webhook URL grabbed from Zapier and pasted into our Wordpress dashboard:  

 

 

Back in Zapier, I set up and tested the trigger as follows:  

 

 

 

When I place my cursor in “message text” the following note appears in the drop down box to “insert data” and says “no matches found” where I would expect to see the field options from my WP form site above.

No matches found.

 

Does the form data need to be configured differently in WP?   I am not familiar with code so please be specific if/how to edit the form data.  Thanks!

Hi @Beth7CTOs 

you will need to use tags to send the fields in the webhook. You can read more about contact form tag syntax here: https://contactform7.com/tag-syntax/ 

There are also some good walkthroughs and plugins for CF7 to Zapier: https://www.luhhu.com/blog/how-to-zapier-and-contact-form-7
