Adding New Fields to your Field Mapping

Unbounce allows you to map fields from your Unbounce form to many of our third party integrations.  Adding a new field to your field mapping set up lets you map a value from Unbounce to a new field with your integration service.

What is Field Mapping?

Field mapping allows you to send a field in Unbounce to a different field in your integration.  If you haven't already enabled Field Mapping, have a look at our Unbounce Answers article How to Enable Field Mapping.

How can I use the Add New Field feature?

If you have a value in your Unbounce form that doesn't exist in your integration service, the Add New Field feature will automatically add a new field in your integration service.  This is handy because you can manage the integration right within Unbounce without having to hop around from service to service.

What you will need:

  • An existing Field Mapping integration

What it will do:

Add New Field will create a new field in your integration service and send data from your Unbounce form over to that field.

Adding a New Field to your Field Mapping Setup

  1. Log in to Unbounce.
  2. Navigate to the page overview for the page whose integration field mapping you want to customize.
  3. Click the integration you want to customize through field mapping.  This will open the integration's dialog box. 
  4. In the integration's dialog box, click Configure Field Mapping. This will open the Field Mapping configuration dialog.

  5. In the Field Mapping configuration dialog, open the drop down menu for the field you want to map over.  Select (+) Add a New Field.  This will take you to the Add a New Field dialog.

  6. Follow the instructions in the dialog and click Add Remote Field to add the new field to the target integration.

That's it, you're all set!

Once you add the remote field and select it in your field mapping setup, Unbounce will map the select form field over to that target.

How come there's no option to delete Custom Field? It's making error messages because I can't delete the Custom Field that I mistakenly created.

Any form field - custom or not - can be mapped to "(-) Not Mapped", and this will not send the value through when you receive leads.

Alternatively, a red minus (-) icon appears to the left of saved custom field mapping fields.  You can click this to remove the custom field mapping field from your integration.

I hope that helps!

I don't get it. I get the error message shown in the example above and it won't let me add the new field. Am I missing something here?

Hi Ezra,

Are you integrating with MailChimp specifically and getting the exact error?

Would you mind opening a support ticket with us?  You can email support@unbounce.com.
