Hello Community. Quick question I can’t seem to find an answer to.
Is there a way to construct a URL that will allow me to capture a referral code on a new member signing up on our app? Specifically, we do not market our app but rely on certain members within the app inviting others. It would be really cool if I could somehow insert the referring member’s record ID into the new member’s record.
Is there any way to do this?
Yes. Here’s the “No-Code” way to do this:
- Create a field in the member object called Referral Code
- Add the Referral Code field to your sign up form (and hide the field with CSS if you want)
- Use URL variables to populate the sign up form
Feel free to reach out if you need help setting this up: email@example.com
Thank you Ian. This sounds very promising. And I would like to hide the code but I don’t know how to do that in CSS. Is there a simple way?

Yes, add this to your CSS and replace the field number:
I believe that
visibility:hidden is safer because
display:none might prevent the URL variables from filling the form.
This works fantastically. Thank you Ian.
