    Can I add a querystring value to the form link to track where users found the link to my form?

    Asked by sjpd on January 28, 2016 at 05:02 PM

    I see that there is a widget that can be added to forms to track the referrer.  But I want to publish QR codes in various publications and then track analytics to measure which of several sources resulted in our application form being submitted.

    I'm hoping that I may be able to construct unique URLs such as:

    https://form.jotform.com/myformnumber?test-20160128 

    And then have that querystring logged in the Jotform database.

    Is there a way to track links in this way?

    Thanks!

    You cannot log it in the Jotform database, however you can log it in your own database using PHP.

    Here are a couple of guides that may help:
