    Adding Google Analytics event code to the Submit button

    Asked by andrewmetropolis on October 23, 2015 at 09:34 AM

    We have an analytics manager that wants us to  implement the code below

    The developer will place the following code within the code of the submission link:


    onClick="ga('send', 'event', { eventCategory: 'Contact', eventAction: 'Form Completed'});”
    It should look something like this for the contact form:

    Please help me to understand how to do this.

    Your analytics manager is asking you to add a little custom script/code into the form, which can't be done with our online forms. In order to add custom scripts, you will have to get the source code of your form.

    You will then add the script to the source code, and paste the full code into your website in place of the currently embedded JotForm form.

    The change that your manager is asking to be implemented should be quite simple. You will only need to paste this part inside the Submit button of your form's source code:

    onClick="ga('send', 'event', { eventCategory: 'Contact', eventAction: 'Form Completed'});"

    If this is about your Contact Desktop Form, 51043579032147, then you would be changing this part of your source code:

    <button id="input_14" type="submit" class="form-submit-button"> Submit </button>

    Into this:

    <button id="input_14" type="submit" class="form-submit-button" onClick="ga('send', 'event', { eventCategory: 'Contact', eventAction: 'Form Completed'});"> Submit </button>

    This will do what your analytics manager has asked for. Please let us know how it goes.
