Passing Result information To & Within Outgrow

You can pass results from a 3rd party application to Outgrow or from 1 Outgrow content to another using the URL/CTA button on the results page.

Steps to follow to set up the flow of results within Outgrow

To pass results from 1 content piece to another, we will make use of Custom Hidden variables functionality here. This is how it will be configured:

1. In the second content piece, we will create 2 Custom Variables. For now, let's refer to these instances as r1 and r2, and we will set the default values for r1 and r2 as 10 and 20 respectively.

2. Now if r1 and r2 are passed via URL parameters, the value in the URL parameters will override the default values. Else, if not passed default values will be used.

Example of the URL will be livec.outgrow.us/test-calculator?r1=25&r2=50.

Parameters when overridden via URL:

Parameters when not overridden by URL:

3. Here as we have created 2 custom variables, their variable reference will be V1 and V2. In case there are more custom variables, you can create more variable references in the sequence V1, V2, V3 etc.

4. The same will appear in Formula Builder and can be used in calculating results.

Passing result value from a 3rd party application to Outgrow

1. In your Outgrow calculator, you need to create 2 Custom Variables. For now, let's refer to these as r1 and r2, and we will set the default values for r1 and r2 as 10 and 20 respectively.

2. Now if r1 and r2 are passed via URL parameters, the value in the URL parameters will override the default values. Else, if not passed default values will be used. Example of the URL will be livec.outgrow.us/test-calculator?r1=25&r2=50.

Important Note

In Builder and Preview mode, only the default values will show as you won't be able to have URL parameters override the default values here. That will only happen in live mode.
