Easy peasy, out of the box

Form module integration

A very basic integration could be achieved through a form processor within Magnolia's form module. After the submission of a form, the submission executes a chain of functions. They are called form-processors. In these functions, you could send a POST method to the corresponding end point of the survey tool.

Development and module installation needed

Connect with the Marketing Automation Connector Pack

Beside the form module solution, which does not offer you to use Formstack surveys within Magnolia, you could also use an extension for Formstack that builds upon the Magnolia Marketing Automation Connector Pack. This Connector Pack can be obtained directly from Magnolia alongside the DX Core edition.

The module will offer you the option to choose any type of Formstack survey form and display it however you like inside Magnolia.

Embed surveys from Formstack

If you only prefer to show a sign-up form, you could also create a form inside Formstack and use a usual HTML or iFrame component within the magnolia page. If you don't have an HTML or iFrame component available, please ask your implementation administrator. They probably removed permissions.
