    Can I tell if a form is filled out via a link vs on my website?

    Asked by CheapAlice on April 10, 2014 at 01:37 PM

    I would like to have my form on my website via an iframe. But I would also like to send out emails with a link to my form. Is there a way to tell if the form was filled out by someone on my website or via the link I sent them.

    I don't want to create a clone or seperate form.


    Thank you.

    Hi Lance

    You can use a Get Referrer widget to track from where come your users:


    From my tests, if your form is embed in a website the result is different from when they submit the form from a link:

    But if you use your form in the standalone version, then there is no difference, as the referrer will retrieve the same form url.

    Let us know if we can be of more assistance.

    Thank you
