Hi Richard, I solved this issue on my website many years ago and can gladly give you a demo to prove it. My fix has worked since I thought it up in about February 2013, so almost 5 years. At first I didn’t think it would be a reliable solution, but I think it has proven itself. I don’t think Infusionsoft know that this is even possible.
Please reply if you think this is something you really really want.
Hi Heinz. I certainly would prefer that the feature worked, or that an option to buy the capability as a 3rd party add-on existed. I don’t think it should be that costly a development project for the Infusionsoft team, so my guess is that, as I said in my post, this is actually a bug that they will eventually fix (unless they disabled it deliberately for some reason, like maybe the promotion value Infusionsoft thinks they may get by having more subscribers see their URL when they submit a form). But I think you’re asking what value I would place on a 3rd add-on for this – we would probably pay a one-time fee in the under $100 range to have it, and I would guess other people would as well.
Hey Rich, if you need it here’s the solution I came up with for our own survey:
- Append the contact’s email to the URL link in the campaign email (use merge field notation)
- On the page with the form, use jQuery (or whatever you’d prefer) to grab the value in the URL
- Include a hidden email field in your form, and stick the grabbed value into the input
The email field isn’t visible to the user, but gets passed to Infusionsoft on submit. You can adjust to your specific needs. Hope this helps
