How to track clicks on lighboxAsked by mobiledynamic on August 24, 2011 at 01:47 AM
I have integrated the lightbox into my page and it is working well, however I can't work out how to track the clicks onto the lightbox. I obviously know how many pleople enter the form and press send but I want to track the drop off rate between people clicking the lightbox form button and not completing the form.
My page is: http://mobiledynamic.com.au/2-Mobile-Commerce-Solution/
lightbox form Mobile tracking
Unfortunately, there is no way to do this in JotForm.
I have external tracking URL’s. Can I make a call to a URL when form opens? This would do.
Unfortunately I don’t know how to code this. Can you point me in the direction?
If you have a Google Adwords account, you can accomplish this by inserting tracking pixel codes in your form using the Free Text HTML tool found under the Power Tools section.
This tracking pixel is essentially a 1x1 transparent image which will be fired everytime your form is loaded from the lightbox (assuming it is embedded only via lightbox).
Below is a sample of a tracking code (and pixel - inside the red rectangle)
Let us know if you need further help with this. Thanks!
Here is the great news for you. We're pleased to announce that today we've released the native Form Analytics feature.
You can access this feature from More menu by selecting a JotForm on your My Forms page.
