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 → Notifications section, under Form User Options → Thank You Page and Redirects. Select the option Redirect with custom variables and provide the custom URL.
Important: Files uploaded through File Upload fields, Radio Buttons, Checkboxes, Dropdowns and Likert Scales 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 id=”id123-control..”.
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.
Add as many parameters as you need to.
e.g. control222222=request333333&control444444=request555555 etc.
