Piping is a simple feature that allows you to do powerful things. At its simplest, Piping allows you to take what the user entered in one item and insert it into another item. You can use this in a lot of interesting ways. Set the default value for an item to what the user typed in earlier, or show the user’s name or other details in a section of text or an item’s question. This can provide user-friendliness or a better level of personalization while the user fills out the form. You can also pipe in the user’s responses into custom Notification email or Success Pages messages, or even into redirect URLs that can be used to send data to another site. In addition, we also have “smart” Piping features such as the ability to conditionally set a default in case the user doesn’t enter any info into the source item. You can even pipe extra information from the result such as its unique Reference # value, order total or score, among other data.
