Linking forms in emails

You can include a link to Forms in an invitation email using personalised links. You can use this to conduct pre- or post-event surveys.

  1. Navigate to your form in Backstage
  2. Click Preview in web app button at the bottom of the screen
  3. Select any participant from the dropdown and click Preview again
  4. Copy path part of the URL from your browser

Updating invitation link

Second step is to setup a post-login redirect. This will instruct the system to redirect the user to a specific page after they are logged in.

  1. Navigate to Emailing module in Backstage and select your template or create a new one
  2. Click Insert placeholder fields > Personalised links > Web app link
  3. Click on the link itself and then on the anchor icon in the toolbar
  4. Add &redirect=PATH, where PATH is the text you have obtained in first step
  5. Save your changes
  6. Test the link by sending yourself a test email
