A client has a cool idea for a custom contact form but I'm not really sure how to set it up, maybe if I give some info about what we are trying to do someone can let me know if this is possible and point me in the right direction.
So anyway the client sends out email newsletters to several large lists of subscribers with constant contact, and they often include product info for featured products and sales (they are a wine store). There is also a \"wine locator\" form on the website using the cForms plugin, this is where people can enquire about the availability of a certain wine or other product, or get general product advice.
What the client would like to have is a form that they can link to the product info in their email campaigns, so that the contact can click on the products link and be taken to a pre-populated locator form on the clients website with the contact's email and first and last name taken from constant contact, and with the particular product name (the text being linked) entered in the wine name text field.

sounds quite easy. all you need to do is to parameterize the URL in the marketing email that points to the page with the form: eg:
that way you can "inject" data from the marketing email into the form, which can then easily be submitted by the client.
