Single subscribe form feeding two lists in CM - possible?


I need to create a subscription form (double opt-in) on a client's website. Very straightforward with CM's 'create a subscribe form' code generator but I need to feed the subscription details into list 1 (general contacts) or list 2 (customer) depending on whether they select a check box to indicate if they're an existing customer.

The reason for wanting to do this is that we send two editions of an eNewsletter with one tailored for existing customers.

Can be done with one subscription page?

We'd suggest approaching this slightly differently - have just one list, with a custom field that lets them choose whether they are a contact or customer. Then use segmenting to create the 2 sub lists based on the value of that field.

Simple and effective, only requires the one form.

Hi Andy! Once you've created your two lists, go to the "Create a Subscribe Form" for one of them. Check off the other list under "2. Add an opt-in checkbox for other lists", and you're set.

Edit: Three weeks this goes unanswered, and suddenly Matt beats me to it by 14 minutes :) And with a better solution (although it requires some more work).

I've got a similar situation where a client wants one form to feed to multiple lists.  I was actually planning on just having one list and using segmentation as mentioned above, but here's my dilemma: What if a subscriber wants to unsubscribe from just one of the mailings?  If it is just one list with segments and they unsubscribe, it will remove them from all mailings.  Any suggestions?

Hi - is there an answer to jtnorris' problem with opting out of multiple lists?
