    Hello, 

    Is someone to help me understand how to set up a widget referrer as I am not understanding how to do this? The page is very simple and doesn't talk me through what I am setting up?

    I want to be able to monitor the source of where people have come through from before they have submitted the form? At the moment on Google Analytics it just says 'jotform' but want to know what channel they came through from to access that jotform form on our website.

    Many thanks

    Jess

    This form https://www.jotformeu.com/form/91484714358364 that is embedded in the URL you've shared doesn't have a Get Referrer widget.

    What the widget does is it basically captures address of the webpage where a person clicked a link that sent them to your page where your form is embedded.

    Kindly add the widget and try putting a hyperlink on any site (if you have one), once redirected, fill your form and submit it. The URL where you click the link should be stored in the widget.
