    Hello jotform!

    I'm wondering if there is an easy way to find the referral URL for all of my lead submissions?  We want to do some digging into where our leads get to jotform from.

    Thanks,

    Maria

    Can you please check Get Referrer if it is what you are looking for? It will include the referral link to your submissions.

    Hi Chriistian,

    Thank you for the feedback, I will definitely turn on the Get Referrer widget to capture the Referrer URL moving forward.  Does jotform auto-capture referrer URL's?  I'm wondering if I can get any referrer URL's for historical submissions, even though I'm just turning the widget on today?  I know this is far fetched, but thought it was worth asking.

    Thank you,

    Maria

    Unfortunately, JotForm does not automatically capture referrer URL. If you have added the Get Referrer widget only today previous submissions on your form will not have values for the Get Referrer field. Only new submissions will have its referrer URL.

    That's what I figured.  Thank you for the confirmation.  One last question on this, do I need to create a new field in Sfdc to capture the referrer URL?  I guess my broader question is, where is the referrer URL captured and stored and how can I access to do some reporting?  Would it be best If i pushed the URL to an SFdc field?? 

    Thank you so much!

    If you have added the Get Referrer widget on your form, on your form's submission page, you will see the Referrer field on new submissions.

     

    If you need to process your form's submission data, you can try to download it in excel/csv/pdf files. You can check this guide for more information: How to Download Form Submissions as Excel/CSV/PDF.
