Functional fields

With the function fields you can enter setting specifications directly in the HTML source code of the web form. All these specifications can also be made in the form settings. But function fields allow you to set the settings dynamically.

To use a function field, insert a hidden form field in the HTML code of your web form. With the function name in the name attribute and the desired setting value in the value attribute. In the following you can see which settings are possible with it:

Reply address to email notifications

The _replyto function field is used to specify what the email address is when replying to the notification mail. HTML example of an input field for setting the reply address:

<input type="email" name="_replyto" placeholder="Your email address">

If you name the field _replyto, the input will only be taken over for the reply setting. However, if you name the field email, email or email, the field input will additionally appear in the send data.

Success page

By default, the website visitor will be redirected to our default success page after submitting the form, unless you have entered your own success page in the form settings. But you can also specify any address as a function field in your form. To do this, add a hidden form field named _next in the HTML source code of the form and enter the complete web address (URL) of your individual success page in the value attribute.
