Hey Mark, the spacing can be changed via the form CSS, although it isn't super-easy if you aren't familiar with manipulating CSS. You can include additional text between fields by adding a "rich text" section instead of a new field.
As far as "best ways to store data" what is your ideal outcome? Having a single field that would list all of the products that a person is interested in? If that's the case, I have created a series of campaigns that I use to create a field value of all of our newsletters, so I could write that up to share if you'd be interested.
Thank you, I didnt even spot the rich text button previously so one issue is fixed.
I think at the moment Im recording these technology interests individually, ill see if I can play with the css to make it look nicer. The check box selection is a nicer looking way to do it but then these are linked to a different database field, but that doesnt inlcude all of the individually set values. I have an "interest" field which on a list import, values can but put in this field and a set of campaigns checks that field and populates the true and false fields as required. But I cant map from that field to the form as the values in there can be over written and I cannot record multiple values in that interest field.
I hope that makes sense, not sure I have a database ready brain.
thanks for your help.
I know this is an ancient post, but I am curious to hear how you are doing that. Trying to find a good example of how a preference center can be controlled by a single field.
Care to share how your setup works?
Sounds like what you want is a virtual checkbox group.
This is an array of checkboxes that can be presented together (and even have intra-group dependencies) but when the form is submitted, each checkbox is actually mapped to an individual field on the back end. You can create those checkboxes free-form in a Rich Text Area, styling them any way you want.
Thank you, a virtual checkbox group sounds interesting.
Is there any further info on these somewhere? ill have a google and experiment in the rich text box. Is this something that is achievable just in the normal marketo form interface?
Thanks for your help
