[New] Introducing Email Summaries – Get Weekly Form Stats!

WPForms 1.5.4 was just released and we think you’re going to be as excited as we are about the newest feature.

Along with some behind-the-scenes tweaks, we’re rolling out a really special feature that will make managing and growing your business online even simpler.

How? You’ll now get weekly email recaps of your forms’ performance.

Here’s what’s happening in WPForms 1.5.4.

Easily See Your Form Performance

We’ve made it easier than ever to see how your forms are doing with Email Summaries.

In this latest update, your site admin will now automatically receive a helpful email every Monday with an at-a-glance view of how the site’s forms have performed during the previous week.

The email will contain a report that shows the amount of entries to each form.

We wanted to bring the concept of the easy-to-digest dashboard stats right to your inbox.

  • Lite users will see the total number of form entries for all time.
  • Pro users will see the total number of new form entries in the last week.

Email Summaries are a fantastic way to gain insight into what’s happening on your forms without having to log in to your website.

That way, you can know which forms may need some attention.

But what if you update to WPForms 1.5.4 and you’re not getting your Email Summaries? Well, WordPress is known for not properly sending email notifications.

We suggest you take advantage of our WP Mail SMTP plugin to solve that issue right away. Then, you can be certain that you’ll get your weekly Email Summaries and all your WordPress email.

Note: WPForms Pro users won’t get an email if forms have no new entries that week.

These automatic weekly reports default to being turned on once you have an entry to a form. Click here to learn more and see how to disable them.

In the plugin settings area, you can view an email summary example, complete with your custom header image. Since you’re going to be receiving weekly Email Summaries, now is a great time to add your logo or any image you choose to display on your email notifications.

Along with spotting any issues, you can also use the data in Email Summaries to find high-preforming forms that you can add to different places on your site. Then, sit back and relax while your WPForms helps you convert more visitors into customers.

We want all of our users to be successful with their website, and we know WPForms has a lot of great features to help you grow your business.

  1. I already have the paid version. What do I need to do to get this email summary? It sounds perfect for me because while I am the site administrator, the emails forms go to someone else. So the only way I know about the response rate is to ask her. So if I could receive a report like this it would be great!

    1. Hi Darla,

      Be sure to update the WPForms plugin to the newest version by going to the Plugins page of your site. Afterwards you’ll receive these emails every Monday. If you don’t receive any entries that week, however, you will NOT receive an email.

      I hope this helps!

  2. Hi Daisy

    We use WPForms in a WordPress Multisite Setting with roundabout 200 Websites. With the newes update we now get an WPForms Summary for everey one of this sites.
    Is there any way to turn of the summary for the whole network or do we have to turn it of one by one?

    Kind regards
    Volker

    1. Hi Volker – Sure, you can definitely do this. However, it requires a bit of code and explanation. In order to get all these details to you, could you please contact our support team when you have a chance? Please be sure to mention my name, and that I asked you to reach out. Thanks!

    1. Hi Clayton!
      If you are checking on the Entries page, then it displays all the entries received the day before (until 12 AM). But if you would like to see the actual number of entries, you can check the “All Forms” page, there is a number of entries available for every single form in the list, and it contains all of the entries.
      I hope this helps.
      Have a good one 🙂

  3. Hi there,

    I have the lite version, the weekly emails have been great so far.

    However, the count seems to have stopped at 40 for the past 4 weeks, I definitely know that many more forms have come in since then.

    Is there a way to reset or get the counter to work again?

    Looking forward to a response.

    1. Hi Salim! The particular counter is a very simple bit of programming, where it refers to your site’s database for the information and then reports it through the email. If the count isn’t working as expected, then it likely that there is an issue with your site’s database. We’re not able to troubleshoot this kind of issue here I’m afraid.

      To continue troubleshooting the matter, please contact us if you have an active subscription. If you do not, please reach out to us in our support forums.

      Thanks!

  4. Hi, we use WPForms lite, and have successfully tested a couple entries and received a few from the public. However, our weekly summary email is showing a number of entries (I understand this number on WPForms lite is the total number of entires ever submitted) that is greater than the total number of forms that we have ever received.

    Does this mean we are not receiving some forms? Or does this indicate some entries are started but not completed?

    Thank you

    1. Hey Darcy,

      This looks like an email delivery issue causing discrepancy as you’ve mentioned. To troubleshoot the issue, you can check that your form notification settings are correct using our tutorial!

      If your notification settings are correct, the issue is likely because the emails sent from WordPress are not authenticated (unlike emails sent from dedicated email service providers). As a result, they are likely to be filtered by the receiving mail server.

      To resolve email delivery issues like this, you can configure an SMTP plugin on your site so that emails are sent as authenticated. We have an article with a list of recommended SMTP options and links to their setup tutorials.

      Hope this helps! Please know that we provide limited complimentary support in the WPForms Lite WordPress.org support forum.

      1. Thank you for your reply Nikhil. I’ve read over the SMTP plugin thread as a possible solution before posting here, and wanted to double check this would be a good first start. — limited complimentary support on this forum noted — thank you again for your suggestions and reply.
