    Thank you for sending a ticket, I'm not sure if I understood your question correctly.

    ex. You have 2 forms, Form 1 and Form 2

    1. You have multiple pages that has form 1

    2. You have multiple pages that has form 2

    What you want to happen is to track which pages on your website a user submits Form 1 and Form 2. right? ex. page 1 has 2 submission from form 1 and 5 submission from form 2?

     

    Let me know if this is what you want to happen?

    Thanks,

    Hello, I would suggest to have 2 different forms (clone the original form), and have each form contain a hidden box field, by adding a value on that hidden box (this value will not be seen by your users) that identifies the location or the site it was embedded on.

    This way when you compile your data, you will have a value which describes where the form was submitted.

    Hope this helps,

    If you need further support, do let us know. Thank you.

    That is exactly what I want to happen.  Cesar, thanks for the suggestion but it adds an another ( unecessary ) step.

    Thanks guys

    Hi
    I did the Source Code embed version and it worked well.  But I need to do it with the iFrame embed and I cannot get that to work.  The instructions in the thread for the iFrame version are not geared toward achieving the same result as the aforementioned thread...as far as I can tell.  The Iframe version requires a manual input of the page where the form is.  This is not what I am trying to achieve.  I want the form itself to pick up the URL where it is hosted....just like the Source code version in the aforementioned thread explains.
