    Thank you for contacting us. Both tools are very helpful when trying to get a report on how the form is being viewed and submitted

    The JOTFORM ANALYTICS ( is a report created by us. You can view any form analytics by selecting the form and pressing MORE on the right. In the content menu, you just click on the FORM ANALYTICS. You do not need to install or active this as it is already a feature in your Jotform account.

    jotform form analytics

    This will open the report where you can view how many times the form has been view and submitted. You can also see the device, platform and location of the user that opened the form.

    The GOOGLE ANALYTICS WIDGET, adds a tracking ID into the form. When the forms is viewed/opened it send the information to your google analytics account so you can view all the information of the form.

    They both accomplish the same thing. The main difference would be that one JOTFORM ANALYTICS is our report and the other is a third party.

    If you require additional assistance, please let us know and we will be glad to help.
