The company field is indeed added. It was a little buggy(existing contacts were being moved to a new company created by IS called [oject Object] when they filled out the form but I’ve been assured it’s been fixed as of around 5.3.18 but I stopped using the new landing pages after that due to other issues.
Also note, the new landing page will create a new company record and link the contact to the record. This is a departure from the functionality that exists elsewhere. In theory I like the idea but in practice it’s been troublesome because not all people in a company type the company name the same (JMT, Johnson Miller Tooley, JMT Inc., etc.) If a new contact doesn’t use the exact spelling of the company as we have it in the company record, a new company record gets added. Then I have to manually move the new contact to the existing company and delete the new company record.
Everywhere else, the processing adds a new contact not linked to any company and I then manually link a person.
A thought about automatically linking people to companies… Could IS add logic to rely on the @company.com part of each company’s email address and use that to look for which company to link a new contact to? It’s more unique than the spelling of the Company’s name. Of course some people may use @gmail.com, etc. so the logic would have to account for that.
Also, the new landing page doesn’t mimic previous form processing. It doesn’t add a Form record to the Contact’s info, doesn’t show that anything was filled out in the Recent Activity Report or the Web Form report. The form data does show in the Campaign tab’s recent activity…at least while it’s considered recent… and then it isn’t accessible. So for now, I am back to the old landing pages and old forms. My users need consistent data.
