Below are the basic steps on how to manage the "Success Pages" of a form (referenced in the processing steps as "Redirect to Web Page"

 

A good use case for this is when you want to use one form across multiple landing pages but want to control which success page the contact ends up on dynamically without having to build multiple form processing steps.

 

Step 1:

Build your landing page that will have the form. In the code for the form you will want to add a new "input" that has a value that is unique to that form/success page. In this case I used "Unique-Value-1". You will need to remember this value for later. For this input I used "RedirectCode" as the name and ID which you will need to remember for later. You can use any value here but will need to remember to add it to your form in step 4.

 

 

Step 2:

Build your success page. Once you have built it and saved it you will need to remember the ID that is listed in the url.

Step 3:

Create a new picklist.

To do this go to Settings > Manage Picklists > Picklist (top right corner) > New Picklist

 

After naming your pick-list you will need to have two values we identified in steps 1 and 2, one will be the value that is unique to the landing page and the other will the ID of the success page you want the contact to be redirected to. In the below screenshot you will see as the option value I entered the success page url id and in the option name I entered the uid I created for the form.

 

 

Click "Add" and then click save and close at the bottom.

 

Step 4:

 

Navigate to the form you would like to use. Click "Custom Fields" to add a new field and choose "Single Line Text". Under advanced settings update the HTML name to the name/ID we used in step 1. In this case it was "RedirectCode".

 

 

Step 5: Add a new "Redirect to web page" processing step and choose the "Send to an Eloqua Landing Page". Then choose "Use a picklist to select the landing page". The form field will be the new custom field you just created and the picklist will be whatever you named your picklist in step 3.

 

 

Click Save and test.

 

Few notes:

 

  • You can also use the same process with the auto responder emails by using the same ID from the email you want to send to them and creating a new pick-list that manages the auto responders.
  • It is tempting to use the ID that you are creating in Step 1 be the same url ID in step 2 but if you ever want to use the same success page for multiple landing pages it will quickly get confusing.
  • There is an alternative backup you could add with a new input value of "url" and then when you want to send them to a non-eloqua landing page you can manually enter the url in that input value. If you decide to do this you can add conditional values to both that processing step and the one created for this one essentially seeing if the "field not equaling blank" which should ensure the form steps do not get confused.
