    In the 'Redirect to a URL' page, can you please detect if the form has used the 'Get referer widget'. If it has, then can you please pre-fill the URL text field with the code that redirects to the source URL.

    Also, if you like scope creep, just make the default text "Return them to the source URL" and if they have not used the 'Get referer widget' just add it into the form automatically. Then you are able to automatically return all users back to their source website, unless the field has been updated to use a new URL.

    If you LOVE scope creep, create a second field to optionally add an extension to the source URL like [sourceURL]/thankyou.html

    That way a user can use the same form for their five different websites, and return them all to their source websites' thankyou page.

    At a minimum, please let me know how to use the information in my 'Get referer widget' as my destination URL.

    Wow, you are so bad at your job!
    There are far more helpful suggestions in the comments on the same page.
    But the worst thing is your complete failure to acknowledge suggestions
    that will make your company more profitable. I feel certain that you did
    nothing to give context and pass on the suggestion to the team that manages
    future improvements.
    If you're overloaded, tell management you need help. If you don't know how
    to do you job, seek training. If you don't care about your work quality, do
    something you care about. Life is short.
    Please forward this to your manager.
    Tim.

    Sorry for the inconvenience but 'Redirect to external link' option only accepts exact URL as you can see:

    It does not provide taking values from the fields/widgets.

    You are able to do this by posting the submission data to the thank you page.

    Check this guides out for further information:

    I hope these help.
