Before starting, you need to install Blue Form Builder on your website and have a form created. Make sure that your form contains email field for customers to fill with their emails.

Click the icon. Then a drop-down list containing predefined variables will appear. Select the variables you want to insert into these fields. In the emails sent to customers, these variables will be replaced by submitted data.
