Dynamically Redirect Prospects Based Off Values from their Prospect Record
Need to send folks from a specific industry to a different Thank You page? You can redirect based off the prospect’s record (and if you didn’t have that field completed before this particular form, info collected on the form itself). Check out these instructions.
Still Show Your Thank You Content, but Redirect After a Few Seconds
Let your visitor see they’ve successfully completed the form, then send them along.
Let Your Form-Protected Content Download Immediately
Your visitor submits the form, and the content starts downloading–simple as that.
Prevent Competitors from Accessing the Same Content as your Prospects
Don’t want the competition to see the same whitepaper as your prospect? Though it’s not always bad to let competitors peek in to see how great you are, you may want to send them to different redirect locations as your prospects.
Extra Security Features
Placing a Pardot form onto your HTTPS page via iframe? Edit your iframe HTML slightly to let the form use our security certificate.
