About Form Fields

I created two fields in two forms. One is a checkbox group and the other is a radio button group.



But I never created matching fields in the field manager.



So it doesn’t look like when I submit test entries, that the checkbox or radio button data is saved. And I don’t see a way to send that data over to my integrations either.



Do I have to create custom fields to be able to capture the data from the forms and send it to the integrations?



If so, how do I link the form fields to the newly created fields in the field manager? Do I have to recreate the form fields? (I hope not! 60 choices)

Feature - perhaps there should be a popup warning when you create a new field in the form manager, telling you to make the field in the field manager first. Or, have a popup offering to create a field automagically.

I think there is an issue with checkbox/radio fields with lead field mapping:

https://github.com/mautic/mautic/issues/1348

The mapping is done in the form field configuration. And yes, right now you’ll have to create a custom lead field and then the form field and map it to the lead field. Not sure if a popup is the best way to disturb users every time they will create a form field. Sometimes they don’t want to map it to a lead field and when you’ll create a form field for 10 or 100 time, I thing you’d find a popup to be annoying. But anyway, a pull request with your solution is welcome.
