    I don't think that will help me.

    I need to add parameters to a URL based on field values in jotform.


    if a user enters in their email, I need to append it to an existing url string

    I would need to dynamically change

    <a target="_blank" href='https://www.chainedpayments.com/EZChain/go.php?ButtonID=M7C096KLO1VB0KU999P323B88


    <a target="_blank" href='https://www.chainedpayments.com/EZChain/go.php?ButtonID=M7C096KLO1VB0KU999P323B88&email2=xxx@yahoo.com

    I suspect it's above the normal functions of jotform, but I have to ask anyway.

    I can do this using the link in the form custom Thank you page.

    Please see this form.

    When submitted, there is a link in the thank you page. The link is a pre-populated URl base on the form field values.

    Please inform us if this is not enough to what you need.

    The sample you provide above doesn't work and doesn't explain how it is actually done.  I have the same need where I am running a calculation based on answers and need to take the resultant {result1} and pass it into a url: www.testwebsite.com/{result1}

    Where example result1 = 50 than url = www.testwebsite.com/50

    Your help is appreciated.
