I am using the same form on multiple sites, using the IFrame code to be compatible on multiple browsers as well as with the css of the sites and using the default Thank You page. What is needed is to be able to track conversions with Msn & Google on certain pages. There is a specific code for specific web pages for Msn & Google.
Is there some way to enter the code somewhere within the form for the specific page only to show that there was a completion of the form? Or, do I have to clone the form and enter an url for the specific page with the specific code?

Thank you for your inquiry. In this case, the instructions posted on this thread may prove to be helpful for you -
But if you say you have specific tracking codes for MSN and Google, the best and easiest way to do it is to clone your form and introduce either a Hidden Field or a Free Text (HTML) field (both located under Power Tools) and insert your tracking code there.
I hope I understood your concern correctly and that the above information useful. Please let us know if we can be of further assistance.
Thank you for using JotForm!

Thank you for your response.
I think that your info above would show that someone clicked onto the page with the form - what I need is to show that the form was completed and the easiest way to do that is to edit the Thank You page.
Is there any way to add hidden fields on the Thank You page?

You're right. It makes sense to put the tracking code after the form has been submitted to ensure that these tracking codes only track valid submissions. Therefore, the best option is to place the code in your form's Thank You page.
The best way to have this done is to use a Custom URL as your external Thank You page. This custom URL is a page hosted outside of JotForm (i.e. your website) that contains the appropriate tracking code. Here are the steps:
1) Click the Thank You button of your toolbar. Then select Custom URL in the Thank You Page Wizard.
2) Enter the URL of your custom Thank You Page then click Finish.
I hope you will find the above steps helpful. Please let us know if you need further assistance.

Yep, that's what I thought and have been doing. I was trying to eliminate having to clone the form 30 different times in order to put in the different tracking codes. Can you guys add to your list of upgrades the ability to edit the "Thank You" page with more functions such as hidden fields and html code? That would help tremendously.

I figured what you want to achieve can be made possible using a custom php script on your custom Thank You page. The php script will have to parse submission details, and use a different analytics code depending on a submission info, such as a hidden "website" field.
I suggest that you find yourself a good php programmer. This solution will probably take an hour or so if the person is familiar with Jotform.
Hope that helps. Thank you for using Jotform.

So, do you mean that I could use the same form and not have to clone it if I did as you suggest?
By parse, do you mean that the php script that is created will be able to tell the difference between submissions from over 30 different pages and ding the correct msn or google code as needed? Regarding the conversion code - it is a different tracking code that would come from different pages.
If this is a possibility, do you have suggestions of a programmer that can create the php script for the custom Thank You page?

Remember that you used hidden fields in your form to differentiate which website the submission came from? Well, that same hidden field will be used by the php script to identify what tracking code to use.
So, let's say the submission came from a website you named "google", the php script will parse the submission information coming from HTTP POST, and get the value of "website" which is "google" and then echo the tracking code you defined for that website. After that, a conversion will be counted for that website on your analytics account.
I hope you're following me. It might sound a little technical because it definitely is technical, and is far more advanced than what our Form Builder can offer.
If you're looking for programmers who can take on your project, you may go to websites like odesk.com or elance.com
Good luck with your project and hope you find the best person for the job.
