    Publishing Submitted Form Variables

    Asked by interknecht on September 03, 2011 at 02:54 PM

    I have a project I am working on where I need a user to enter their name (name field) and then select a desired store location (drop down menu). Upon submission of the form I need a coupon (html page) to be filled with the name and the desired store that they just submitted. How can I carry variables from those two fields over after submission?

    Hi there,

    You can use the Send Post data feature to post the submitted
    data into another page after submission.

    To see how it works:
    1. Create a "test.php" on your site and put this code in it:
    <? print_r($_POST); ?>
    2. Go to "Setup & Embed" -> "Thank You" -> "Custom URL" and enter http://domain.com/test.php
    3. Enable the "Send Post Data"
    4. Save and submit your form

    You may also visit the following article from our User Guide for more
    information:

    Hope this helps.

    Regards,
