There are cases in which you want to redirect users from one form to another. The two forms may contain common fields and you don’t want users to fill out the same information twice. This is where custom redirect URLs come in. Using them, you can pass information from one form to another easily.
The redirect URL can be specified in the Settings → Thank You Page section, under Redirect with custom variables and provide the custom URL.
Important: Files uploaded through File Upload fields, Single/Multiple choice fields, Dropdowns, Likert Scales, Phone fields cannot be passed to another form.
Build your custom URL using the following example:
1. Replace form-222222 with the ID of the form where you want to redirect the user’s input. You will retrieve the ID in the URL.
2. Don’t forget to add &customVars123=yes, which is the function that redirects one user’s input to another.
3. Replace 2323232 with the ID of the field where the value will be passed. In preview/view mode of your form, right-click on the input box and select Inspect Element. The ID is a set of numbers located next to “data id=”
4. Replace 1212121 with the ID of the field from which the value will be retrieved. Retrieve it the same way as in step 3, only this time you’ll need to view the form from where you retrieve the value from the input.
The field IDs can be found in the form code. Inspect fields with the Inspect Element browser tool.
You can have two have separate IDs if you have a name field or address field which contains multiple subfield. In this case you need to look at the data-index . For example, at the name field you will be having: First Name – 1234567-1, Last Name – 1234567-2. Therefore, the right syntax will be &control1234567-1=request2222222-1&control1234567-2=request3333333-2. To add the initials continue by adding &control1234567-4=request2222222-4.
Add as many parameters as you need to.
