You want to use auto-populate with external form post code from an Acoustic Campaign web form, but you know that this feature is not supported in this case. How can you make this work for you?
A workaround for Acoustic Campaign landing pages has been found to help in this area. To apply this workaround, take the following steps:
- Copy your External Form Post to your newly created page in Landing Pages.
- Search for an HTML line similar to the following: <input type='text' name='Email' id='control_EMAIL' label='Email' value='%%Email%%' class='"textInput' style='"margin:' div='' /></div>
Notice the text for value=. This portion must be added with the database field name you wish to populate. Be sure to add the %% before and after the field name.
When a contact from the database visits the page, their personalization values should be 'auto-populated'.
If a visitor not in the database visits the page, they see the string values for the Personalization. You can create a default value in database for a visitor with no personalization.
