Where do I find Gutenberg block?

If you want to use Gutenberg block, you’ll need to activate this addon under Hatchbuck > Addons. Remember, you need WordPress version 5.0 and up to use Gutenberg block.

How do I embed form shortcode into my template file?

Please use do_shortcode() function. For example: <?php echo do_shortcode('[hatchbuck form="HTML-form"]'); ?>

Where do I find Hatchbuck API keys?

Go to Account Settings > Data > API to get API key.
Go to Account Settings > Data > API > Tags to get a specific tag key.

Will Hatchbuck track scroll box subscribers?

At this point no. Hatchbuck API does not allow to set a tracking cookie, so we can’t track visitors that completed scroll box form. The moment Hatchbuck allows cookie to be set in API, we’ll add that functionality.

Tip: Add an email confirmation for scroll box subscribers, asking them to click on a link in your email to confirm subscription. When they click that link, Hatchbuck will begin tracking them.
