{{ member }} object

This liquid object will output the Member's details of whom submitted a Form.

You can use this on the default form submission page (/_form-submission-results/) or any custom redirect page you have setup for the confirmation page of your form.

The output can also be used within the forms auto-response email Body, From Name, and Subject fields, the Workflow Notification email Body and Email Templates, and other member related System Emails.

{{ this.member }}

An example of the data structure for a successfully submitted form is below.

{
    "id": 2,
    "email": "asmith@example.com",
    "firstname": "Alex",
    "lastname": "Smith",
    "address": null,
    "city": null,
    "state": null,
    "zipcode": null,
    "country": null,
    "site": null,
    "phone": "11222333444",
    "createddatetime": "2018-11-19T10:42:07.227",
    "updateddatetime": "2018-11-19T10:42:07.263",
    "securezones": [
        {
            "id": 20,
            "name": "My Secure Zone",
            "landingpageid": 2541,
            "createddatetime": "2018-11-05T15:17:23.037",
            "updateddatetime": "2018-11-05T15:17:23.037"
        }
    ]
}

Accessing the Data

As an example of rendering a piece of this data onto your confirmation page or within the forms autoresponder email you could use the following Liquid:

{{ this.member.firstname }}

This would output the value Alex to the page/email based on the above example data.

Extending on this example, we can use this data to provide Secure Zone related information to the recipient member:

<p>Your user name is '{{this.member.email}}' and you are subscribed to the following secure zones:<br>
{% for zone in this.member.securezones %}
    <li>{{zone.name}}</li>
{% endfor %}</p>

Viewing Data while Developing

It is often desirable to see all the data that is available to you on a page while developing your applications and there are two common techniques for doing this.

1. Rendering JSON to the Page

You can quickly and easily render the full JSON output directly to the page you are working on in order to view all the data and its structure in an easy to read format.
Simply wrap your desired Liquid object in <pre> tags like so; <pre>{{this.member}}</pre>

A JSON representation of the available data will be rendered to the page similar to the output examples above.

This of course is a temporary technique as you would not want to leave the JSON data visible on the page.

2. Rendering JSON to the Console

Perhaps a cleaner and more persistent way of viewing this data while in development, is to log the JSON output to your browser's console (in the browser's Developer Tools).

To do this, add some javascript code to your template file (just before the closing </body> tag) like this:

<script>
    console.log({{this.member}});
</script>

What this will do is output the JSON data into a structured data tree in your browser's Developer Tools console.

You can actually use this method to log any Liquid data to the console, such as a custom collection, for example:

<script>
    console.log({{myCustomCollection | strip_html}});
</script>

You might notice the Liquid filter | strip_html added here. This is optional, however, in some cases the JSON data will contain HTML code and this can break the Javascript, causing a scripting error.
So, keep in mind that, when using this filter, any fields containing HTML code in your JSON will not actually show the HTML in the console, however, the data is still there and accessible via Liquid when rendering to the page.

Remember to remove this code for production as it could pose a data security risk and it is best practice not to leave console logs in your scripts.
