    sending a payment form

    Asked by bspscott on January 13, 2016 at 08:41 PM

    I would like to create a payment form where our customer services reps can got a Jot and fill it out by entering a persons name, email address, short description and a dollar amount.  Once they submit it an email will be sent to the email address they plugged into the form and in that email there will be a link to a new jot form that has a payment area with the pre populated dollar amount from the original form.  Not sure where to start on something like this.  Your help would be appreciated.

    You can start by setting up an autoresponder for the form. Creating a Form Autoresponder

    Then in the body of the autoresponder message, you can input the link of the new form and add the URL parameters of the amount that you want to pass. 

    For example:


    The red text in the example is the name of the field where the amount will be passed.

    The {amountRequesting11} is the amount from the original form.

    The autoresponder in the screenshot is from the first form. the myProducts is the name from the other form where I will populate the amount field.
