Redirecting a contact to a page after submitting a form
You can redirect a contact to a new page after the contact submits a form. For example, you can redirect the contact to a page to download a white paper after submitting some information about themselves.
Note: Your administrator may have set up a whitelist for external domains. If you try to redirect to a page that is not on the whitelist, the form submission data is still recorded, but users are redirected to an error page. For more information, see whitelisting domains.
When configuring this form processing step, you can manually specify the Oracle Eloqua landing page or external page URL, or you can use one of the following options:
- Use a picklist - Use this option if the form contains information that you can configure Oracle Eloqua to use to determine the appropriate landing page. See Using picklists with form processing steps for more information.
- Use the value of a form field - Use this option if your form contains a field that specifies the landing page you want to use.
For example, you may have a check box that submitters can use to indicate interest in online seminars. Those who select the check box are redirected to the seminar list landing page.
