    Tracking: How can I track where a user came from?

    Asked by brenniek on February 17, 2011 at 01:11 AM


    I am using your form, but need to track where my submission came from, PPC or organic. All I think of is using an IP address, to tie in with my adwords account. Is this possible to do when using your form.

    Create a hidden field on your form. Let's say you called this field "tracking".

    Then simply pre-populate it from URL:



    This will give a new column in the report so that you can see where the user came from.

    I have followed your instructions, but the URL http://www.jotform.com/form/12345?tracking=PPC

    directs to a not found page.

    Sorry, that was just an example. You should replace "12345" with the form ID for your form.
