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. The custom links are created by using our own domain (123 Form Builder) and this procedure can’t be used on the forms embedded on your website.
The redirect URL can be specified in the Thank You Page section. Select the Redirect with custom variables option and provide the custom URL.
Important NoteFiles uploaded through File Upload fields, Single/Multiple choice fields, Dropdowns, Likert Scales, and Phone fields cannot be passed to another form.
Build your custom URL using the following structure:
Copy it into a text editor. The highlighted remains unchanged and it is required for the custom URL to work.
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 can retrieve the ID from the URL or from the Publish → 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. The ID is a set of numbers located next to “data id=”.
3. Replace 1212121 with the ID of the field from where the value will be retrieved. Retrieve it the same way as in step 2, only this time you’ll need to view the form from where you retrieve the input (the initial form filled in by the user).
You will have separate IDs if you have a Name field or Address field that contains multiple subfields. In this case, you need to look at the data-index. For example, in the Name field, you will have 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.
