update a counter on a lead

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?
