[v4.0 Preview] Template Variables on Success Page

Template variables is a powerful feature to customize the notification email content. Using template variables, you can customize which form data to be displayed, using your own content template.

On version 4, we’re bringing this feature into Success Page as well.

You can now customize your success message using template variables, exactly the same as when you customize your email content template.

You’ll be able to create personalized success page like this:

And not just that, if you choose to use the Redirect URL for your success page, you can use template variables as part of the Redirect URL. So that you’ll be able to send your form data to your own custom URL.

For example, having this Redirect URL:

http://www.example.com/thankyou.php?name={element_1}&total_payment={total_amount}

will be translated by MachForm to be like this:

http://www.example.com/thankyou.php?name=John%20Doe&total_payment=143USD

Availability

This feature is available since MachForm v4.0
