How to connect your videoasks to and from your typeforms

Want to be a rockstar who takes advantage of the features of BOTH VideoAsk and Typeform? Keep reading to learn how to redirect your respondents from one to the other!

 

This guide creates a sequence starting with a typeform, redirecting to a videoask, and finishing back at another typeform. This set-up will require being on a paid account for both VideoAsk and Typeform.

 

1. Create Typeform A 

Check out this article to create your first typeform! 

  • Include a question asking for the respondent's name and make it required
  • Include a question asking for the respondent's email and make it required

  • Edit the Button Link of Typeform B’s thank you screen to redirect to a particular URL. This way, when someone completes Typeform B, they will be sent to the webpage of your choice, and not back to the beginning of Typeform B.
