Formating Mailchimp groups in depending choice of user in contact form

Problem: How add user email to Mailchimp list in depending choice of user in contact form

Solution: We'll be use plugins Contact Form 7, MailChimp for WordPress. Also, we have example on the site of MailChimp plugin, that use for awareness what to do we'll do, but we'll make a little differently.

<select name="mc4wp-INTERESTS[ec14a686c8]">
<option value="5527b34480">Interest group 1</option>
<option value="462b888077">Interest group 2</option>

INTERESTS namely ID list categories remains unchanged, but change only ID each category. Where we can they find? There are many ways:

Way 01: In the plugin MailChimp for WordPress, MailChimp tab, click on the list and see the ID.

Way 02: Open links step by step:

  1. - click Let's Do This!
  2. - click Get Started
  3. - click Playground
  4.… - enter Mailchimp API (Acount - Extras - API Keys)
  5. Click Lists, choose necessary list and in its in the columns looking for interest-categories
  6. Choose necessary category, in the interests column
  7. Click on each category and get next info:

list_id: db58q3b12e
category_id: 34cbb1e321
id: 1b9c2203aa

list_id - one for the whole form
category_id - name of the select
id - current category where necessary add user

Would that we had don't have condition about choose, we could make next list and add it to Contact Form 7:

<select name="mc4wp-INTERESTS[34cbb1e321]">
<option value="0"></option>
<option value="1b9c2203aa">Sales Enquiries</option>
<option value="29cf33340b">Product Information</option>
<option value="39de449d5c">Partnerships</option>
<option value="423655ba6d">Career Opportunities</option>
<option value="53f46673ee">Developer Program</option>
<option value="6ca777b4ef">Other</option>

but since we have the condition, we can done a little differently. Add hidden field to Form tab in our form (Contact Form 7):

<input name="mc4wp-INTERESTS[34cbb1e321][]" type="hidden" value="" />

where using jQuery, we add value of select

$( 'select[name="mc4wp-TEXT2"]' ).on( 'change', function () {
	switch ( this.value ) {
    	case 'Sales Enquiries':
		$( 'input[name="mc4wp-INTERESTS[34cbb1e321][]"]' ).val( '1b9c2203aa' );
		case 'Product Information':
		$( 'input[name="mc4wp-INTERESTS[34cbb1e321][]"]' ).val( '29cf33340b' );
		case 'Partnerships':
		$( 'input[name="mc4wp-INTERESTS[34cbb1e321][]"]' ).val( '39de449d5c' );
		case 'Career Opportunities':
		$( 'input[name="mc4wp-INTERESTS[34cbb1e321][]"]' ).val( '423655ba6d' );
		case 'Other':
		$( 'input[name="mc4wp-INTERESTS[34cbb1e321][]"]' ).val( '6ca777b4ef' );
		$( 'input[name="mc4wp-INTERESTS[34cbb1e321][]"]' ).val( '6ca777b4ef' );

plus, we need to add the list ID to Form tab in our form (above I wrote where we can see it or Setting (on the list page in Mailchimp) - List name and defaults ).

<input name="_mc4wp_lists[]" type="hidden" value="db58q3b12e" />
