Pass email recipient to form field

Pass email recipient to form field

Hello WA,

I have an HTML page that will be emailed, and a form page that the email recipient will be directed to with the click of an image. I would like to make the form easier to complete by having the recipient's email address passed to the "email" field in the form.

I have DataAssist (W/ Cookies Toolkit). Can you provide the steps required to achieve this?

Thanks

where do you have the email recipients address stored?

Is it in a database?

Does the user need to login before filing out this form?

Pass email recipient to form field

Actually my vision is this. The user recieves an HTML email. I have placed a text field in the HTML with an initial value of %E-mail_address%.

The mass email program picks up this code (%E-mail_address%) from the recipient's list (not from the data base).

I would like to pass the contents of the 'text field" to a field in the form. Both text field and form field are labled 'email'.

Can I use a client side cookie to do this? What steps are needed?

Thanks

you have a text field in the form that you wish to enter the email address into:


to do this, click the lightning bolt next to the to address in Universal email and select the Email text field from the form collection.
