Join Patrick Rauland for an in-depth discussion in this video Viewing and exporting form submissions, part of WordPress: Contact Forms.
- [Instructor] One day, the company I work for…received a phone call from a client…complaining that their contact form wasn't working,…and we discovered that we typed in…their email address incorrectly.…So all of those contact form submissions…went to an email address that didn't exist,…and they were lost forever.…Let's just say the client wasn't happy.…That's why I always recommend that you use a contact form…that also stores each submission into the database.…That way, even if the emails get lost or get stuck in spam,…there's always a backup of all of the entries.…
Lucky for us, Jetpack does this automatically.…In fact, you may have already noticed it.…In the Admin, under Feedback,…we can see the entries so far.…Let's click Feedback,…and now we can see all of the entries.…And this displays them just like how they're emailed out.…So we can see the name here, the email address,…the subject line, and the message,…as well as any additional fields.…Now, I do find this a little hard to read.…I'd rather have a list of all the fields and their values.…
