Carry variable across from one form to another?

  1. deeve007

    Hey there,

    I have one form where a user enters their name, email address, and then submits and is forwarded to PayPal to make a payment. They are returned to another page with a form on it for further details. Is there a way I can carry their email address from the first form across to the second form and use it within a hidden field so I don't have to ask for it again?

  2. Sure, the query string method laid out here should work for you.

    In your second form you would set the email field you want to be populated dynamically with paramater names of your choosing. Then in the first form's confirmation settings, you would use a redirect url and then use the query string builder/area to pass the email paramater name and it's value using the merge tag drop down. ie - paramaternamefield1={field1mergetag}
