Hi, I would like to know if exists documentation to create a different unsubscribe form, where can I add a question about why the customer is unsubscribing.

 

And how can I add this form for a specific list.

Hello @DaviAmaral,

Great question!

You can create your own customized unsubscribe page which can include a question asking why your customers unsubscribed by enabling the Hosted Pages function within Klaviyo. After enabling this feature, you would gain the capability to custom code your unsubscribe and preferences pages which can be applied as the account default pages and as list specific pages. You can enable the hosted pages by navigating to Account > Settings > Domains and Hosting and clicking the Enable Custom Pages button. To learn more about coding your own custom unsubscribe and preferences pages and about the hosted pages, I would recommend reviewing the About Custom Hosted Pages in Klaviyo and How to Custom Code an Unsubscribe or Manage Preferences Page articles. 

Since using custom unsubscribe and preference pages require custom coding, I would recommend working with a developer or finding a Klaviyo partner who can further help you build and design your desired pages.

I hope this helps!

Hey @DaviAmaral I got this to work with a workaround! 

The problem with just using Klaviyo’s example custom page is that when I created the custom unsubscribe page, and added a list of reasons to select why they are unsubscribing, the custom profile property would not update once a user unsubscribed.

Therefore, the user would unsubscribe, but the unsubscribe reason would not post to their account as a custom profile property.

I used a lot of trial and error to come to the conclusion to treat the page with the idea of a multi-submit form -- but then actually splitting the two sections (unsubscribe reason selection and unsubscribe checkbox) into two separate forms, where upon submitting the first form reveals the second. Because of this, the unsubscribe reason selection must come first. [NOTE: I used Klaviyo’s base code for custom unsubscribe page, found here: https://help.klaviyo.com/hc/en-us/articles/115005077067-How-to-Custom-Code-an-Unsubscribe-or-Manage-Preferences-Page ]:

  • Add the unsubscribe reason selection in one <form> and the actual unsubscribe checkbox in a separate <form>; Note: both forms will need the email field (I just changed the label for the second one to “Confirm email address”)
  • The unsub reason form will have to come first
  • After the unsub reason form, put in a hidden iframe:
<iframe name='formresponse' width='300' height='200' style="display:none"></frame>
  • The unsub reason form then needs to have a target of the iframe, so add target=”formresponse” to your unsub reason form
  • To make it extra user-friendly, I also added an onclick to the unsub reason form button so that onclick it would hide the unsub reason form (put it in a div, used javascript function to hide on click), as well as to reveal the unsubscribe checkbox form (so it’s hidden until they submit their unsubscribe reason) (put the unsubscribe checkbox form in a div, used javascript function to reveal on click)

So change unsub reason form button to:

                 

<button type="submit" class="btn btn-default btn-primary" onclick="HideTop();ReasonSubmit()">Send</button>

 

And in the script add:
 

        function ReasonSubmit() {
    document.getElementById("UnsubDiv").style.display = "";
        }
         
         function HideTop() {
  var x = document.getElementById("hideDIV");
  if (x.style.display === "none") {
    x.style.display = "block";
  } else {
    x.style.display = "none";
  }
}

 

Surround the unsub reason form with <div id=”hideDIV”>
Make sure to start the div just before the unsub reason form, and don’t forget to close off the div (</div) AFTER the unsub reason form only.

 

Surround the unsub checkbox form with <div id=”UnsubDiv”>
Make sure to start the div just before the unsub checkbox form, and don’t forget to close off the div (</div) AFTER the unsub checkbox form only.

 

Here is the FULL HTML, it’s Klaviyo’s example edited to include the above; but PLEASE NOTE that because of my trial and error, there may be some unnecessary code in there because I’m a novice -- it’s working fine for me though! Now I have created segments in Klaviyo where the properties equal each of the Unsubscribe reasons so I can see why people are unsubscribing. :D
