Jotform Email SubmissionsAsked by smcleads on November 20, 2015 at 10:13 PM
I'm hoping to condense forms on all of my clients site so that I can keep up with our lead counts every month. Currently we have multiple catch pages on every one of our clients site that all have their own form per page on them but have the same exact fields and of course a unique title to the form. The reason we create all these forms is so that when the a email notification is sent out the title will tell our client which special they were interested in. My goal is to use the same form on multiple catch pages and somehow notify our client in the email notification what special the user is interested in. I first thought I could add the URL from which the form submission came from, but I don't see that option available. Could you give me some insight on how I could do this?
Below is an example of what I'm talking about. The two catch pages have different forms on them but have the same exact fields. If we could use one single form for all catch pages it would keep things in much better order.
If I understand you correctly, you would like to capture the page URL of where you have embedded the form. This to now exactly where the form was submitted from.
If I am wrong, please correct me. To do this, you may use the widget widget get form page url. This will capture the page URL of where the form is embedded. You may add this in you notification.
Please let us know if this helps.
Ok would there be any other way of accomplishing my goal? This would be my last choice.
If a can understand, you want to use the same form to select different products, I can see in your website you are using a button to open a new window with the form, you can use a prepopulated field and then you will be able to know in what is interested the use, follow these steps.
1. You should add a Select to your form and then add the options with the specials you offer in your website,I will name the select as "Special".
2. Open the properties and copy the name of the field:
3. Now, you should add the email notifications , one for each special , in my case I will add 4 email notifications :
4. Add a condition for each email notification:
Now, you can set the Special field as hidden and won't be displayed on the form,you will be able to use the same form and know what special is selected, the URL you should use will look like these :
This is for my examples, you can name your specials as you need, but you should not use spaces between the name.
Yes : Special1
No : Special 1
Remember, you can use different names for each special and the also you can add or delete options if you want.
Here is how it works :
Here is my form, you can clone it if you want :
Let us know if it's what you are looking for.
Hello, the Page URL would work best, but being that form pops into a new window it just gives me the URL of the popout and now where the from was embedded. Is there any way to fix that?
I think could not be possible to do that, since if you would like the widget to capture the link to the website where the form is embedded on, you should embed it without using the Pop Up method.
In the way you are doing, the widget will always capture the URL of the form and not the URL to the website.
Ok. Is there any way to do it the way you said while still capturing the data in the submission. It worked great except for the fact that when I would look at the submissions I had no idea which special they selected.
If I understand correctly, you can capture the URL referrer where the pop form came from by adding a hidden field on the form and the just pre-populate it with static info that was appended to the pop-up script of form URL
there should be a hidden field in the form that will get populated by the URL parameter value. So when form is submitted, you will now be able to capture the data thru that hidden field.
Hope this help. Please let us know if I misunderstood the process.
