How to enter Query String to automatically populate form on a website?


How to enter Query String to automatically populate form on a website?

I have done this easily in  and it works well there. I'd like to do the same for my client using Constant Contact.


After sending out an email campaign to my list, I need to have user information automatically populate a form (Gravity Forms) on a website. In  the query string for the website link lookalike this:*|FNAME|*&LNAME=*|LNAME|*&LOCATION=*|LOCATION|*&EMAIL=*|E...


I read somewhere that Constant Contact uses "$" for the query syntax, so I tried:$FNAME$&LNAME=$LNAME$&LOCATION=$LOCATION$&EMAIL=$EMAIL$


That didn't work. The fields are left blank.


I also read somewhere that in Constant Contact you need to turn OFF click tracking to have this work, but I don't see where that option is.


Can someone please give me some guidance on this?
