I set up a Profile which collects contact information for new supporters. It automatically creates a new contact record, but I'd like the CiviCRM Source field to be automatically filled in (e.g. Petition Signer). Also, it would be nice if it automatically triggered a thank you email. Is there a way to do these things? Thanks much for a great product!!

  • agree that if a contact is created via a Profile, that the Profile as 'Source" would be useful

If you are using Drupal, Webforms give you full control over these things.

  • Sorry, I forgot to mention, we're using CiviCRM 4.5.8 and WordPress...
