Bit form Smart Tags

Smart tags are helpful to display and get static and dynamic information from the user. A smart tag is some form of default short-code of Bit Form, which gets the static information of the WordPress user you use.
For example: Here is a smart tag ${_bf_admin_email} that can be used in the Email template to pull the site admin email. Also, you can show this information in your form on the front end with conditional logic and form submitted success or error message. Smart Tags use the dollar sign and curly brackets, and look something like.
Example: ${_bf_user_display_name}

How to use Smart Tags

Integration

You can get a User IP address by sending it to a third-party app via integration. First, set up a complete authorization process for integration. Then you will get the option to map the form field. There you will find the section of general smart code, and select the user IP address.

Conditional logic

On form load: The On Form Load action is used to dynamically alter a Form when it is loaded. The Form actions On Form Load are executed when the Form is loaded by a user. When a page is loaded and you want to pre-filled some field value. There are two ways to pre-filled a value:

  1. Use an initial field key in field properties in the form builder.
  2. Use the parameter in the URL. The parameter in the URL: website_url?field_api_name=field_value Example: https://www.bitappspro/?bf1-1=${_bf_user_first_name}

In the above example, after the form loading First Name will be User First Name and User Last Name. Many kinds of logic are used for On Form Load such as Equal, Not Equal, Is Null, Is Not Null, Contain, Not Contain, Start With, and End With.

Email Notification

You can send the admin name, email, and more default WordPress static data using smart tags via email notifications. Then you need to create an email template or edit the existing email template.
Next, you will find the Smart tag fields option. Select the option from the Drop-Down list that you want to send the data into the email notification.
