Business Network Use Case (Manage Subscription)

Hello,



Great work with mautic everyone.



I’m about to use mautic to manage communication for a business network and I’m trying to define the best features that fits needs. We should be able to target contacts with different communications by a number of variables including:


  • Profile Type (Entreprenuer, Investor, Expert .etc)
  • Industry Sectors of Interest (20+ Economic Sectors: Tourism & Hospitality, Technology, Knowledge & Consulting .etc)
  • Job Function (CXO, Administration, Sales .etc)
  • Chosen communication (Announcements, Newsletter, Events, Services .etc)



    I tried to use “Custom Fields” but realized it doesn’t support multi-option which is necessary for choosing multiple sectors of interest for example. Building a signup page would be quite easy, though I’m trying to build a “Manage Subscription” page though which I can get users to first see the lists they are a part of now and be able to update their preferences.



    Is the use of Tags the best options I have right now?



    Is it possible to pass the existing subscriptions to the form? So, user can see what’s already checked?



    Here are samples of the current pages (work in progress):



    Subscribe: http://comm.egypreneur.com/subscribe

    Manage Subscription: http://comm.egypreneur.com/manage-subscription



    Appreciate your input.



    Thanks

I just saw this pull request allowing multiple options in custom fields which makes it better than using tags for everything for me above: https://github.com/mautic/mautic/issues/575

Still a few unanswered questions to get what I have in mind for the “Manage Subscription” page.
