One of the numerous marketing solutions Cakemail’s customers enjoy is convenient management of their contact list subscription forms that appear on their websites or in their apps. Cakemail’s customers use subscription forms to capture their users’ email addresses via an online form. They can either add a code snippet to their website or redirect their users to a dedicated form page hosted by Cakemail.
Cakemail asked us to redo the frontend part of Forms to align this section with the rest of the upgrades applied to the Cakemail v5 app. Cakemail had completely changed their Contacts module, which affected the way users captured their contacts through online subscription forms. As a result, the original Forms section no longer worked with new Contacts; therefore, it required a brand new code. Although Cakemail came up with a temporary solution to fix this issue, they needed to expand the existing functionality and enable forms UI customization.
Apart from working with the tight deadline, we also had to prepare the frontend without the backend because it was not ready when we started. Using the given static mock data to fake the backend, we managed to realize the frontend part of Forms with all of its new features.
