Don't worry, this article is not too technical for you. We promise. 👊 

Simply put, pass data provides a way to pass information from the app to external websites, based on the URL clicked. This is nice for the user, because they don't have to enter information that was already in the app. 

Variables can be added to any URL in the app (Web Link, Web List, or External Link) via query parameters. This allows the app to pass user, session and item information to a website (for example, Typeform or other surveys), allowing for a smoother and more data-rich experience.

Pass Data From Your Event App

You can pass data to URL from the following areas in your event app:

  • Web Link feature
  • Web List feature
  • External Links
  • Announcements
  • Banners Layout

️⚠️ Caution, if you pass data, make sure you enable it on the link by checking the Pass Data to URL checkbox.

For all links with pass data enabled, these data points will be sent from the app:

  • first_name
  • last_name
  • user_id
  • email
  • external_id

Session External Links

For a session's external link with pass data enabled, these will be included in addition to the user data points:

Item External Links
