of Formidable Pro form submissions

Automatic processing of Formidable Pro form submissions

Automatic processing of Formidable Pro form submissions might be considered if the submission volume is larger than can be handled manually, or if complex processing is needed. Both apply in this case, with subscriptions for sporting programs that need to be assigned to fitness coaches at sporting locations close to the subscriber’s home address. Formidable Pro is used to collect the required information which is processed through the Formidable API add-on, the WordPress REST API and the Google geocoding API. Automated emails are sent out to confirm the subscription with the selected coach before exchanging contact details between coach and subscriber. Notifications are sent out if manual intervention is required.

Automatic processing

Processing Formidable Pro form submissions automatically ensures 24/7 responses towards customer enquiries. Furthermore, workloads are dramatically reduced. Only corner cases may require manual intervention which is aided by notifications with instructions. Connecting APIs ensures modularity in this software solution, making it easier to maintain.

Smart data processing

through APIs

Behind the screens

The submitted address in Formidable is converted to a latitude and longitude pair before selecting custom posts for sporting locations closest to the client. This is done with the Haversine formula in MySQL. A coach associated to this sporting location is selected and receives an email to confirm the client’s assignment. Upon confirmation, contact details are exchanged automatically.
