I want to use sitecore 9.3 form for creating a new contact in a contact list. The contact list should consist of below custom fields: Email Id, Mobile number, Full Name

The values of these fields should be taken from sitecore forms

This is the form: enter image description here

Thanks in advance!!

What you need is to create a custom Submit action that will let you pick you form fields and update xConnect fields on the contact.

I don't want a link only answer, but Sitecore already wrote most of the code in their walkthrough.


Then in the submit action, you get to pick your forms fields and align it with an xConnect to populate.

  • I have gone through the doc. In the section "Add a folder that contains parameters for the editor" There is a table with column headers; FormDropList, Parameter, ValueFieldName, DisplayFieldName, FormLabel, BindingConfiguration I wanted to know what should be the value of the columns. Can you help me understand taking the example of "FirstName" Sep 25 '20 at 13:09
  • It is just telling you what stuff to enter in the Sitecore item. dropbox.com/s/phr0c8ktc59oz8u/2020-09-25_09-40-48.png?dl=0 Its in the core database /sitecore/client/Applications/FormsBuilder/Components/Layouts/Actions

  • FirstName is going to make the First Name in your form to the First Name in xConnect. Do the example as is, when it works and you understand it, you can add your own custom properties. We use this all the time.
