Now that you have an Email Audience based on your custom field selection, you need to create a Survey form to collect subscribers.
Make sure that the form is set up to create accounts. The form must create Neon accounts in order for those individuals to be included in your standard email audience.
Add a new page.
Add the account custom field to your form page from the Neon fields sidebar and set the field as Required in the left Properties menu.
First Name, Last Name and Email must also be added as required fields.
When you're done adding fields to your form page, select Save and then publish the form.
Once published, anyone that fills out this custom form and selects the "Monthly Newsletter" option will be automatically added to your Monthly Newsletter Email Audience.
