    How can I add a custom hyperlink populated by URL to my form

    Asked by samML on December 12, 2016 at 12:29 AM

    Hi,

    I want to include a text field on my form that has a customer hyperlink to a page distinct to that customer.

     

    All the hyperlinks take the form of something like:

    www.abc.com/XYZ

    where the XYZ piece will be different for each customer.

     

    I'm already populating other fields such as name, phone etc. using the form URL but want to know how to do this to get a custom hyperlink with the XYZ for each customer.

     

    Thanks

    As I understood your question, you would like to show a prepopulated link at the text field for each individual submitter. 

    First of all, you should know that Text (HTML) field prepopulation is not a freature which is available for the moment. In other words, text field can not be prepopulated. The thing I can suggest you is to direct your user to that custom URL from thank you page. 

    Please note that you need to create two forms for this feature. You can pass a field data on the first form to a field at the second form or vice versa.  I added a detailed user guide for this property together with another user guide regarding directing your user to a different page. You may have a look at them.

    I think, this is the only way to achieve what you want to do. In addition, You do not need to add different prepopulated URL for each submitter. 

    If you have more questions, please feel free to contact us.
