Redirect Form to Landing Page

There is a new action for what happens upon a successful form submission. When a user submits a form on your site, you can either display a message on the page, or now you can redirect the user to another page on your website. Possible uses of this new functionality include displaying content or links to content on a success (aka thank-you) page. For example, in exchange for a user giving you their contact info, you could return the favor by giving them a free download of valuable content, or perhaps a coupon code for a discount on a purchase. As an added benefit, unique Google Analytics tracking code can be embedded in the page to give complete end-to-end conversion tracking.

To take advantage of the new action for regular forms, go to "manage sites"=>"edit forms". Click "edit properties" and scroll down to the "After form successfully submitted" section. Select "redirect to" from the dropdown and then select a page from the second dropdown. Don't forget to save your changes.

For database forms (ie forms that save the data to a database table), go to "manage sites"=>"edit database".  Click the "forms" icon next to the desired table. Click "view/edit" for the form to be updated, and finally "edit this form". Scroll down to the "After form successfully submitted" section and select "redirect to" from the dropdown and then select a page from the second dropdown. Don't forget to save your changes.
