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:
The part that is highlighted remains unchanged and it is required for the custom URL to work. Copy the following structure into a text editor:
Now, you will need to add your own information from your forms.
1. Replace 222222 (where it says 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 or in the Publish – Get Link section of your form.
2. 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=”
3. 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.
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.
