My company is planning to have public "course" where potential customers can watch a video, be asked to enter various info about their company, be displayed a "this is how much you could save" type of screen, and finally at the end of the course be sent to a specific URL where we pass variables such as name, phone number, etc. This url will then save this into a database, and our sales department will then have some nice leads to follow up.

 

In my last thread I learned that you can do the various calculations easy enough, but I'm now wondering specifically if the part about sending users to a specific URL with variables in it works in Captivate. We're using talent lms as our hosting platform, but I guess that shouldn't matter.

Captivate doesn't offer any functionality 'out of the box' to encode URLs with variable data, however, this can be achieved using third-party widgets or (if you have access to a programmer) JavaScript code.

 

If you decide to go the widget route, take a look at the information here: http://www.infosemantics.com.au/adobe-captivate-widgets/cpextra/help/data-persistence 

Look under the heading about GET variables.
