    Hello, I'm trying to pass our form into a CRM we use via Webhook. The CRM (CampusLogin) has specific ID requirements that must be passed, and I set the unique names a such. However, when I test in RequestBin, I see additional prefixes being added to the names. q1_, q2_, etc. This is causing the post to fail in CampusLogin. Is there any way to remove these prefixes? Or is there another workaround? Thanks!

    The q1_,q_2 actually is the ID of each field variable, which is basically identified by an HTML element.


    Unfortunately, there is no option to separate this value  from the unique name.

    If you need further assistance, let us know.

    Are those q values being passed in the webhook as well?

    Is there any way to use something like Zapier to send the Unique Names without the q values to the Webhook/.

    For webhooks, we use the fields name to create a post e.g. $_POST['q730_name'].

    Unfortunately, the prefix on fields is necessary for the uniqueness of each field added.

    It is possible to use Post method without using the name field prefix in HTTP post data.
