Concept :

  • In web-to-lead with little extra HTML code, you can redirect that information to salesforce which creates a new lead in salesforce.
  • No need to change your website form design. 
  • You just have to select the fields in your Salesforce Org like name, email, phone etc same as your website form fields.
  • Then Salesforce will generate an HTML form code for you.
  • You just have to copy and paste that code and replace it with your website form HTML code by mapping the website form fields with salesforce lead fields.
  • That's it !! no more hassle


Let's take a look at how to implement it -->

  1. Hi Ajinkya that was pretty nice way to make things understand how web to lead works!. Just a small question, we need to map those fields before this code being executed in codebeautify right ?

    1. No, As you are pasting the code generated by salesforce it is already mapped while pasting in codebeutify, but the mapping which I have mentioned is about providing CSS to it and map it with the old existing fields by replacing this new code.
      Please let me know if you have any more doubts.

      HAPPY LEARNING ☁️⚡️
