Dynamic Form Redirect Links


#1

I design a lot of landingpages. Many companies use landingpages to showcase downloads (whitepapers, brochures, etc) which can be downloaded after filling out a contact form (to collect contact information). Many of these landingpages (if not, all) need seperate thank-you pages for each of the landingpages. Now, for many of these sites, I create these landingpages using CMS.

Using CMS, I can’t set custom Redirect URLs for each contact form in the Template pages. Only 1 static redirect url is available for each form. I imagine, it would be a fairly small addition in the Webflow form settings to make the Redirect URL a dynamic field. Which would mean, we can insert a thank-you URL in the CMS item, and grab choose to use that URL in the form Redirect settings.

I made a wishlist item for this feature;

We really need this!

I’ve seen many people requesting this feature on the forum, including;

@Damon_Daisley_Wilson, @cjroe, @KarlMyrvang, @Sebasgaes, @Kristian_Widjaja

@rowan Your description captures my situation exactly. Have you (or anyone else affected by this limitation) found a workaround or even a way to customize the Success Message with reference to the CMS item?

@rowan Using a url from the CMS Item for the direct url field on a form is a great idea.

@eburnett You can customize the Success Message easily. For example include a text field in the CMS Item for the Success Message and link that to the paragraph. Then you an even go a step further and add a button that is either defined by the CMS Item or conditional based on a field in the CMS Item.

This would be the basic idea.

Thanks @matthewpmunger! Those are helpful ideas and ones I hadn’t thought of - appreciate the response and ideas. I’m also looking into custom javascript to unbind the webflow form handling, grab the slug out of the url and provide a custom action using that slug.

If you really want to add some personality to the form success try adding an image, GIF, or video.
