    Dynamic Link in Thank You message

    Asked by csmarketing on July 31, 2012 at 10:51 AM

    We have product PDFs that we like to get an email address before freely giving out to leads.

    What I was doing for the initial page we tried this on was created a form asking for their email address, then the "Thank You message" contained a link to download the PDF.

    We're ready to push this across all our products pages, but for simplicity's sake, would like to use the same single form for all the PDFs. I know how to identify which form was requested by using this method: 

    http://www.jotform.com/answers/19992-How-Can-I-Differentiate-When-I-Use-the-Same-Form-on-Different-Sites

    Now though, I'm trying to figure out a way to dynamically insert a link to the specific PDF requested at some point in the process, depending on the page the form was on. I'm not sure if there's a way to do such a thing.

    Any suggestions, or just going to have to create a form for each PDF (each with their own different Thank You Message)?

    Thanks in advance,

    -Cameron

    Hi Cameron

    Not to get your hopes up but I think that this is feasible. In a nutshell, a condition can be created to send a different thank you message based on the URL captured by the hidden field mentioned by my colleague in the thread to which you have referred.

    Let me run some tests and get back to you.

    You know, now that I've prepared the demos, I don't think it's quite the solution you're seeking! It's not quite as dynamic as what you want. Nevertheless, complete and submit the three forms below and observe the thank you messages:

    Cars

    Trains

    Planes

    Would that sort of functionality suffice?

    Wow, that certainly seems to be doing what I need to do. And I am seeing how you did it under the last option in the Conditions menu. 

    I'll go through, add a few of our PDFs to their own conditions (depending on the contents of the hidden webpage field) and report back. 

    Thanks Wayne!
