    Can I add a variable from a Form to a URL in a condition?

    Asked by oecc on March 02, 2016 at 02:36 PM

    This is the URL I send to the payment company. It works fine.



    I would like to add a variable field value for each person that registers. JRREF


    This needs to be added to the end of the URL as &reference=JRREF

    How can I add this variable for each submission?

    Yes, you can add URL parameters to the thank you URL of your form. You can do this either to all form submissions, or by using a condition to only add it in some cases.


    To do it conditionally, based on a field selection or entry on your form, you can use conditional logic with "change thank you page" rules.

    From what I understand, the value will be static. All customers who fill out the form will be using the &reference=JRREF, and the JRREF value will not be changing on the form. Is this correct?

    If that is so, simply set your form's Thank You URL to your desired one:

    If you will be using a variable value, such that not every customer will use JRREF as its value, you can also forward any value from your form by suing its name tag:


    For example, a form field with name {reference} could forward its value in a link such as this:
