Contact Manager

To get in contact with customers, stakeholders or interested peoples is one of the main objectives of a homepage. Having published news, offered services, orderable products or ideas it’s desired that the reader or customer gives feedback, asks or requests an offer.

Our typo3 plugin is based on our MotoGo Lib and in consequence inherits its full potential. In our base version following features are implemented and directly usable:

  • A contact form having standard mandatory or optional fields (name, email, subject, message etc.) with validation as well as a captcha security mechanism.
  • After send button is pressed, sender as well as receiver will get an email information. Furthermore the contact record is stored in DB.
  • In a “hidden frontend area” the list of all contact requests is accessible. This list provides all functionalities needed for contact management.
  • In particular search and sort opportunities provide a good overview over all contact requests.
  • Each contact can be answered per internal E-mail functionality that is part of our Frontend User Manager. After answer was send per E-mail to contact, a flag indicates that contact request was processed soon.
  • (Filtered) contact requests can be exported in an EXCEL list.
  • Contacts are also available and editable in typo3 backend.

In case listed features aren't enough, it’s simple to add own contact fields, verifications or different checks for unwanted robot requests. Also, it’s simple to extend the base functionality with own actions alias functionalities. The simplicity of the MotoGo Lib ensures that it’s a matter of few configuration changes or additional lines of code.

Moreover, for all frontend output pure CSS, jquery mobile as well as bootstrap layout can be used. Whereby it poses no problem to use two layouts in one solution if necessary. Thus the contact form can be part of a bootstrap page, even though the contact management is performed in a separate jquery mobile environment.

So much for theory, now to the practical application: In case you are interested or you have any question, ask per contact form.
