E360 ChMS & Giving - Form Integration
If you have an account for E360 ChMS and/or E360 Giving, you have the option to share your invite with the form tool available with these platforms. You can either use this option in place of the existing, hard-coded email form built with the layout or only use embedded forms for sharing specific items.
To integrate your forms, you will need to copy the form embed code from the giving or ChMS platform and then paste the code into the "Invite Form Embed" field for each sharing item.
Note: if you do not see the "Invite Form Embed" field in your Invite Share Options link list, please let the Ekklesia team know.
