Contact Form 7 Storage is a robust WordPress plugin designed to securely store all Contact Form 7 submissions, including any attachments, directly within your WordPress database (DB). This ensures the preservation of crucial contact form entries and valuable business leads, even in situations where email notifications are lost or deleted.
Noteworthy Features in Version 2.0.0:
- Enhanced GDPR Compliance: We’ve introduced settings that allow you to disable the storage of user meta data, aiding in your GDPR compliance efforts. Additionally, you can now customize form export settings, specifying which fields should be included in the export.
Assisting with GDPR Compliance: While it’s important to note that this plugin doesn’t guarantee full GDPR compliance, it does provide functionalities to support your compliance journey:
- Effortless Data Deletion: Easily delete form entry data, meta information, and uploaded attachments as needed.
- User Privacy Protection: You have the option to disable the storage of user IP addresses and browser information.
- Comprehensive Data Storage: Every form submission is stored within the WordPress backend, in addition to being sent via email. This redundancy ensures that you never miss out on important leads or inquiries, as email delivery can be less than 100% reliable.
- Effortless Data Export: Export your form submissions as CSV files suitable for Excel. You can choose to export all submissions or apply date and form filters to select specific entries. The export also includes handy links to any attached files.
- Detailed Submission Records: Each entry retains the following information:
- Individual input field values (also available as individual columns in exported CSV files).
- All attachments uploaded through the contact form.
- Timestamp indicating the date and time of the entry.
- Email address of the contact form recipient.
- Subject line of the email sent to the contact form recipient.
- URL of the post or page where the contact form was submitted (referer).
- IP address, browser details, and device information (user-agent) of the submission.
- A convenient link to the configuration page for the contact form used for the submission.
