    How to I pass form fields through custom thank you page?

    Asked by ldewilde on March 03, 2017 at 09:21 AM


    I found the way to configure the web page shown after form submission.

    I could configure different web pages, depending on the form input, works fine.

    What I now would like, is to sent the user to a custom URL with variables that come from the form input:

    eg https://form.jotformeu.com/61052560225344??firstName=John&&lastName=Doe&&emailAddress=john.doe@apple.com

    John & Doe & john.doe@apple.com are variables coming from the form input.

    Is this possible? How?

    If not, will this be possible in the near future?

    You can indeed get the fields from your form and pass them to the URL, you need to get its name and add it between brackets to capture the entered value, example: 

    eg https://form.jotformeu.com/61052560225344??firstName={name:first}&lastName={name:last}&emailAddress={email}

    On this guide you will find the steps to pass data from one form to another, the process to get the fields names is the same when you need to pass data to an external webpage: https://www.jotform.com/help/351-How-to-Automatically-Pass-Form-Data-to-Another-Form
