How do I include which custom fields labels are which custom field values in my Constant Contact Account?

You can add this to your active theme or custom plugin: add_filter( 'constant_contact_include_custom_field_label', '__return_true' );. Note: custom fields have a max length of 50 characters. Including the labels will subtract from the 50 character total available.

Which account level access is needed to connect my WordPress account to Constant Contact?

You will need to make the connection to Constant Contact using the credentials of the account owner. Campaign manager credentials will not have enough access.

It connects fairly well - and has a reasonable feature set, but with 50 lists across 16 websites and installing this plugin on most of them, I have come across the following shortfalls that is requiring us to find another compatible plugin that will record data into CC: * Fields are extremely limited - can't add anything but some generic first/last/phone/email and custom text field, but no dropdowns, selections, checkboxes, etc. * Address field hardcodes State/Zip into fields - as a Canadian company, we are forced to leave this here even though we'd love a toggle for Province/Postal Code, and I am sure other countries would agree. * Output limits how much flexibility you have to design - basically just forced to go down in a vertical single line form unless you seriously hack out some bad-syntax css rules to add columns. * No ability to customize the 'agreement' disclaimer at the bottom - we want it to be unique to each website, not just the same generic one for the main CC account. * I am personally ok with the bare visuals as it is really easy to override all the elements to design the form how you want, but could see why some users may find it too basic who don't have much html/css knowledge.

It's functional but if your website is well designed I can guarantee you this form will be the ugliest thing on the page. It's embarrassing. It's like forms from 1999. Literally. UGLY! Come on CC. Get with the times and spend some $$ on better UX and design. Shameful 🙁

You're totally on your own with this thing. The form function uses shortcodes but ConstantContact support says it doesn't use shortcodes. Look for guidance from ConstantContact and you probably won't find it. The more I attempt work with ConstantContact the more I am perplexed as to how they remain in business. There are a few with a helpful attitude but the structure does not match reality.

This would be a much better tool if they didn't try to rigidly style the forms. We've spent many days trying to massage the output to fit our site. It's leading us to reconsider Constant Contact (after a decade with them).

The tool makes everything simple and maybe it is the success and the curse because when you want more there is no way to add anything, you have to work with the things that have been given to you, e.g. there is no way to add drop down menu to registration forms

Seems to work OK (although I see error messages occasionally). However, it doesn't seem to be integrated well with Constant Contact. Constant Contact has its own forms and integration, but these forms seem totally separate from those. On the positive side, that means these forms match the style of my WordPress theme. On the other hand, I have to set the fields and operation of the form independently. Update: I am pleased to see there is now a way to add a choice of list when the user signs up.
