    Is there a way to tell where a form was filled out?

    Asked by lukeschenkel on December 10, 2012 at 10:14 AM

    Hello,

    I want to embed a single form on multiple pages, is there any way to tell where the form was filled out?  

    If it is not possible, maybe you could help me accomplish my goal.  I manage an RV dealers website and I would like to put a contact form on each unit details page.  However, it will do me no good if I do not know which unit the customer is looking at when filling out the contact form on.  We have over 100 listings and the unit detail pages are automated so I could not put a unique form on each page.  If I could see the URL of the page that the form was filled out at, I would know which unit they want to be contacted about.

    Any information is greatly appreciated.

    Thanks,

    Luke Schenkel

    Hi there, 

    Sure there is!  You can add a hidden field to your form and add an ID according to where you embed it.

    Here is a thread that can help you with that:

    Thanks for the quick response.  

    I checked out that thread. That would work for me if I was manually adding the form to each inventory listing.  However, I will only be adding the form to a template from which the inventory listings are created.  Therefore, I will not be able to add a unique embed code to each listing, they will all pull the same code from the template.

    Is it possible to have the hidden field automatically populate with the URL of the page it is embed on?

    In most cases this is possible too. Please take a look at the following tutorial:
