Features

New in 1.5.0: Specify the CSV delimiter character right before doing the export.

All form submissions are stored in the WordPress backend in addition to being sent via e-mail. E-mail delivery is never 100% reliable and having a backup of all contact entries will ensure you never miss a lead or inquiry.

List of all contact form submissions

Export form submissions as CSV for Excel. Export all submissions or use the date and form filters to select which entries you want to export. Export also includes links to entry attachments.

CSV export of Contact Form 7 entries

Each entry stores the following details about the submission:

  • Individual input field values (also available as individual columns in the exported CSV files).
  • All attachments uploaded to the contact form.
  • Time and date of the entry.
  • E-mail address of the contact form recipient.
  • Subject line of the e-mail that was sent to the contact form recipient.
  • Post or page URL where the contact form was submitted (referer).
  • IP address, browser and device information (user-agent) of the submission.
  • Link to the configuration page for the contact form that was used for submission.

Single contact form submission

Installation

  1. Select “Plugins > Add New” from the main menu in your WordPress dashboard.
  2. Select the “Upload” tab at the top of the page.
  3. Select the cf7-storage.zip file for the upload and click “Upload”.
  4. Be sure to activate the plugin once it has been uploaded.

Usage

This plugin adds a new section called “Entries” under the “Contact” menu in the WordPress dashboard which lists all of the contact form submissions in a reverse chronological order. Quick preview of each entry to avoid extra clicks.

Dropdown selectors at the top of the list provide filtering and sorting of the contact form entries by the contact form used for submission and the date of submission.

Export entries as CSV by using the “Export as CSV” button at the top of the form entry list. Use the dropdown filters or the bulk action dropdown selector to select which submissions to export. Specify the CSV delimiter character (comma, semicolon or tab) for quickly opening the file in MS Excel.

Free form text search is also available for finding a specific entry.

Reference entry ID and entry URL in the e-mails that get sent to the admin:

  • [storage_entry_id] is replaced with a unique entry ID such as 3212, and
  • [storage_entry_url] generates a link to the entry in the backend accessible only to registered users.

Please note that Contact Form 7 doesn’t support wrapping variables in square brackets [] such as [[storage_entry_id]]. Please use another set of characters (for example {} or ()).

Automatic Updates

Install the Envato WordPress Toolkit plugin to enable automatic updates of this plugin right from your WordPress dashboard. Don’t forget to specify your API key and CodeCanyon username in the “Envato Toolkit” settings page.
