Form abandonment occurs when users filling an HTML form and leaves without submitting it. The form can be a single page form or multiple pages. For a multi-page form, it usually refers to the last page of the form. But if a user fills details on the first few pages and then leaves the form in between even then it will be known as from abandonment. Similar to cart abandonment, form abandonment is also a common issue across websites.

With the help of PushEngage web push notifications, you can target such users, and notify them to complete the abandoned form. Overview of The Form Abandonment Campaign –

Case 1 – If the From is Single Step

Step 1 – As soon as the person visits the page where the form is present he will be added to the segment called "Incomplete Segment". The segment name should be the same as the segment you create.

How to Create Form Abandonment Campaign with PushEngage

Step 1 – You would need to create a segment first in your PushEngage Dashboard. then you can add the user who abandons the form in that particular segment and then notify him until he completes the process. To create the Segment Navigate to Segmentation > Manage Segmentation > Create Segment.Segmentation data-srcset= Manage Segments" width="200" height="414"> You can add the segment name you wish to create and click on Submit. In the example below, I have created a segment called "IncompleteDetails"Create a new segment

Step 2 – Add code mentioned below in a function and call it on the event "onclick" or on the page load.

window._peq.push(['add-to-segment','IncompleteDetails',function(res){
if(res.statuscode==1)
{
// Code to return response
console.log(res);
}
}]);

Step 3 –  Create a Segment new segment "IncompleteDetails1" if the form has the second stage. Then use the code mentioned below and call it on the event "onclick" as mentioned in step two –

window._peq.push(['add-to-segment','IncompleteDetails1',function(res){
if(res.statuscode==1)
{
// Code to return response
console.log(res);
window._peq.push(['remove-to-segment','IncompleteDetails',function(res){console.log(res)}]);
}
}]);

Once the subscriber moves to to the second stage, he will be removed from the segment "IncompleteDetails"  and will be added to "IncompleteDetails1".

Step  4 –  If the form has third stage create a new segment "IncompleteDetails2". Then again add the code mentioned below on the event "onclick" to add the user to "IncompleteDetails1"  segment and to remove from "IncompleteDetails1" segment.

window._peq.push(['add-to-segment','IncompleteDetails2',function(res){
if(res.statuscode==1)
{
// Code to return response
console.log(res);
window._peq.push(['remove-to-segment','IncompleteDetails1',function(res){console.log(res)}]);
}
}]);

Step 5 – If the next stage is to click the submit button then create a segment call "submit" or "ThankYou" as per your requirement. In this way user you completes the form and submits the campaign will be removed from Form Abandonment Campaign. You can use the code mentioned below on the Submit segment.

window._peq.push(['add-to-segment','ThankYou',function(res){
if(res.statuscode==1)
{
// Code to return response
console.log(res);
window._peq.push(['remove-to-segment','IncompleteDetails2',function(res){console.log(res)}]);
}
}]);

Step 6 – Once you made the segments and have added the code you would need to run the Drip Automation Campaigns in parrallel to remind your users to complete the form. to create the campaign navigate to Drip > Create Autoresponder.
