    Log custom data in URL

    Asked by reciproc8 on September 26, 2013 at 07:38 PM

    Hey guys
    Is there a way to log custom data in the URL to a proceding page for the purpose of tracking traffic sources?

    Can answers from the webform be appended to the URL of the redirecting page upon submission?

    I suspect webhooks does this?

    Here's my scenario.  I am running all kinds of advertising driving traffic to a page that has a Jotform webform on it; www.example.com/form/?facebook_ad

    Upon submission of the webform, they get redirected to a page with an Aweber webform embedded.  Since Aweber stores the opt in URL, I want the ?facebook_ad to carry on to the next page after the jotform webform submission.

    Is there any way to do this using Jotform without creating multiple pages and multiple webforms?

    You can use your field variables on custom thank you URL.


    And then on your Custom Thank you URL, append these variables.

    e.g. http://www.site.com/?field_name={email3}

    {email3} will be replaced with the real field value.

    Let us know if I've misunderstood your question. Thanks!
