Google Analytics Widget: Adwords/Analytics campaign data included in the submission and email notificationAsked by micampsolutions on September 16, 2015 at 07:54 PM
Is there a way to include Google Adwords/Analytics Campaign Data in the form submission?
ie. search query? adgroup? etc.
Not sure if I understand the concern correctly.
The Google Analytics needs to be opened in Google's dashboard for you to have a better view on it, however, we do have some widgets that may capture data of the user, but for a comprehensive analysis, a 3rd party platform may be needed like Google Analytics.
Here are the available analytics for widgets: http://widgets.jotform.com/category/analytics
We also have our own Form Analytics, although it is still in Beta, but please do see if that somehow helps: http://www.jotform.com/blog/150-Introducing-Form-Analytics.
If you want to catch the user's machine information like Browser and OS, you can follow this guide: http://www.jotform.com/help/234-How-to-Catch-User-s-Browser-Info. It is not necessarily analytics, but those are usually information that is also captured.
I hope that helps.
Thank you for responding!
In FormStack, when you integrate Google Analytics, you are able to include some data INSIDE the form submission email.
ie. UTM data >> "campaign name" >> "campaign source" >> "campaign keyword"
The basic stuff i could find from looking at Google Analytics Goals, and then
Unfortunately, I believe our Google Analytics Widget does not have that feature, but let me forward this to our widget team to see if they can add this feature as an improvement. Please do note that I'm unable to guarantee that this will be implemented, it will depend on our developers current workload.
We will update you directly on this thread when this has been implemented.
I understand. But I guess I don't know how the integration makes a difference?
What exactly is it doing since the page already has the code as well??
If I am not mistaken, the Google Analytics widget allows you to monitor or track the user's activity in the JotForm Form, the convenience that it gives you is you just need to add the Tracking ID.
By default, I believe you need to insert a script or PHP code in the webpage to monitor or track it, unfortunately, you cannot add a script or PHP code directly on the JotForm itself, unless you'll use the form's full source code and embed it to a website, other than that, you cannot add your own scripts inside the form, this is where the widget will be of a great use.
