    Collect Browser And Operating System Used

    Asked by barrycosta on August 04, 2013 at 01:37 AM

    Hi JotForm,

     

    First of all. THANK YOU!!! for making such an awesome service. I loved how I was able to customize the forms with my own css. As well as add in my own re-direct to a thank you landing page. SO AWESOME!!!

     

    I was wondering if it was possible to add on the ability to forms to collect the users browser, browser version, operating system and operating system version?

     

    This would be a helpful feature which would help me with analytics.

     

    Thanks so much :)

    Barry Costa
