Lately, many teams are using real-time messaging tools like Slack to receive key notifications & alerts for new opportunities & prospects. Getting real-time notifications for partial form entries & potential leads doesn’t have to be difficult or require technical knowledge!

In just a few clicks, you could get setup to get notified immediately via Slack anytime a potential prospect leaves your lead form(s) before clicking “submit” — along with all available data they entered before dropping off.

Insiteful can help you track and optimize from virtually any web form in just a few clicks. Apart from helping you capture 100% of leads that fill out your forms, our plug-n-play solution also enables you to increase your conversion rate with power-ups (i.e. save & continue later), auto follow-up, and smart insights (i.e. confused / abandoned form fields).

Trying to set up real-time missed opportunity alerts for partial form entries & leads? Want to save lead data from users that start to fill out your forms but don’t finish? It doesn’t have to be tedious. There’s nothing more disheartening than missing out on a potential opportunity due to form abandonment or website drop-offs; Insiteful can help you seal the leaks in your lead forms!

Before you get started with the how-to guide, make sure to complete the preliminary step below:

How to get Slack notifications for partial entries & leads from your forms
