    update a counter on a lead

    Pace McCulloch

      Does anyone have experience using a form to store an ongoing variable on a lead?

       

      For example a landing page with a form on it:

      Tell us how often you eat food? [textfield-meal]

       

      On submit don't replace the previous value with the new value, but add the previous value with the new?

      Then return/email the user, your new meal count is old value + new value from form submission

       

      Any links to dev docs would be helpful.

       

      My current thought is to have hidden fields. 2 hidden fields to do the math.

      Prefill a hidden 'old value' from lead data

      Have a 'new value' field that on submit adds the form textfield to the old value field.

      So each form submit would actually submit the meal textfield and the new-value running total.

       

      Then I could use the running total value in a thank you email. Thoughts?
