    How to make a 2 part form to Get Email Address?

    Asked by squeakycleanhouse on April 12, 2012 at 11:12 PM

    Basically, I am wanting to make a simple "Get Quote" form that asks for Contact Info including Email address.

    Then, I would have a button that says "calculate quote" and it then submits to me their info and takes them to 2nd form w/ prices and to book appointment next.


    My goal here is to get their info before they leave the site.

    I made a form here w/ Conditional options but they could still get pricing and leave the site and I would not get their contact info.

    I tried to do a conditional form to form but it didn't work.

    Any ideas?


    If there is a way to get their EMAIL address while just having 1 form, that would be awesome!!

    Unfortunately, there is no way to capture a form field value unless the submit button is clicked by the user.

    How about creating two different forms - one for basic info (email, name, etc) and the other for prices and appointment booking? The second form will be linked to the first one using the Thank You URL option.

    This way, you will be able to always get their email and name even if they abandon the second form.

    funny you said this.  I was just doing that but then got stuck on how to pull in some fields from form 1 to form 2 so I know they are connected.  I assume it would be using Hidden fields on Form 2?
