How to transfer collected form data to your separate custom Thank You page (PRO)

AidaForm makes it possible to transfer form response data for its use on another form or page, for example, on a separate custom “Thank You” (After Submit) page.

The data is transferred by adding query parameters to the After Submit URL that is set up for the data collecting form. (For example, https://example.aidaform.com?name=@field1 &email=@field &quizscore=@field3 )

It’s possible to display the transferred data on the separate “Thank You” page created in AidaForm by using the Hidden fields of the Query Parameter type and Text fields with piping (@).

Also, you can transfer response data when you use conditional logic for After Submit redirects.

Important: The instructions in this guide are provided for cases where you would like to transfer data collected on one form to use on another form or page. If your “Thank You” page is a part of your form, you don’t need to set up redirect URLs, as you can simply use the piping (@) function to display collected data.

Example: How to transfer and display a quiz result score on a separate custom Thank You page after your quiz is submitted.

Suppose your quiz form calculates the quiz score and collects your respondent’s name and email. After the quiz form is submitted, you would like to display your respondent’s quiz score result on a separate custom, personalized “Thank You” page.

Create a separate custom personalized Thank You page

  1. Create a new AidaForm from scratch. Add the header, images, logo and any content you wish. Hide the Submit button if needed. The form will serve as a custom “Thank You” page.
  2. Add two Hidden form elements with the Query Parameters option chosen to the page. You need them to transfer your respondent’s name and quiz score. Type in the fields’ names. These can be any names, not necessarily the same as on your quiz.
  3. Add the Text field to your form. Enter the text you would like to display to your respondent. Use the piping (@) function to display your respondent’s name and quiz result. How to transfer collected form data to your separate custom Thank You page
  4. Go to the Publish section and customize the URL of your “Thank You”page. For example, the URL of your “Thank You” page may look like this: https://example.aidaform.com/quiz
    Copy the URL.

Add data transfer parameters to the After Submit URL for your quiz form

  1. Go to the Quiz -> Builder -> Set Up -> General -> After Submit section and choose the Redirect to URL option from the drop-down menu
  2. Paste the URL that you have copied in 4. and modify the link by adding a string of transfer parameters. For example:

https://example.aidaform.com/quiz?Name=@TheFieldCollectingName &QuizScore=@TheFieldCalculatingQuizScore

Where:

  • the Name and QuizScore are the names of the hidden fields you have added to your “Thank You” page
  • the TheFieldCollectingName and TheFieldCalculatingQuizScore are the names of the corresponding fields on your quiz form. You can choose them from the list of available fields. How to transfer collected form data to your separate custom Thank You page
