    Can I identify a submission through a Dynamic Name URL?

    Asked by Hfplus on October 04, 2012 at 01:03 PM

    We have a form used for multiple locations to submit orders. Each location has a Dynamic URL name given to their IP. I would like to identify the submitter and enter a FROM name based upon their Dynamic DNS name.

    For example:

    Location 1 has an Dynamic IP with a Dynamic DNS name of Widget.mywidget.com assigned to it.  When they fill out the form, I want to form to recognize Widget.mywidget.com and insert "Location 1" as the name of the submitter.

    Hope I have explained this well enough?

    Thank you,

    Yes you may do that by using Conditions on your form.

    Here are some screenshots, based on your example.

    You may add a hidden field for the "Location 1"

    You can setup the Conditions like this:

    Thanks for the reply...

    How do I get the form to automatically detect the dynamic DNS name from the IP? Or detect the IP and I can create a contiditon based upon IP address.

    Unfortunately, there is no way to detect it from IP.

    If the forms are accessed using the unchanging DDNS domain (e.g., widget.mywidget.com), the solution in the following user guide might be of help:
