    Does JotForm have a 'Refer Your Friends' feature?

    Asked by centralcomputers on December 30, 2013 at 06:20 PM

    Basically, after the person enters the contest, they would have the option of sharing the giveaway contest with their friends to get additional entry points.

    I think that's possible when you display the referral link on your form thank you message.

    The setup would be this.

    1. Create a form and add a hidden field, name the hidden field "referrer".

    2. On your form thank you page, enter your form URL along with the URL query (?referrer={name}) to populate user's name or email as the referrer. This will be the referral URL of the user.


    Then enter your Form URL with the URL parameter, example:


    Where {name} is the field variable on your form that you'd like to be the referrer's identification. Here's how to get the field variable.

    3. When the user submits your form, he will be directed to your thank you message with the referral URL. Just add an additional description on your thank you message so the user will be aware about his referral URL. That will be the URL to share.

    If you need further clarification about this, let us know here. Regards!
