    Pass form responses to URL in autoresponder.

    Asked by ciden on January 05, 2016 at 04:22 PM

    I have a job application form which includes fields to list a reference. I've created a separate reference form to be emailed via autoresponder to the listed reference once the application is submitted, the autoresponder email will include a link to the reference form. What I need to do is pass the applicant's name on to the reference form, basically the form will open and say "John Doe has listed you as a reference". 

    My question is, is there any way to have the value of a field in the application, e.g. "{applicantName}" appended to the link for the reference form in the body of that email, resulting in something like "http://www.jotform.us/form/formidnumber?applicant=John+Doe".
