    What does a "view" specifically means?

    Asked by MayleenJaimes on August 23, 2016 at 11:23 AM

    Hi, we have a form created, and I realize we have 30.409 views since August 1st, until today. 

    I need to know, specifically, what a "view" means


    Thanks for your help.

    The "views" in the Form Analytics simply means the instance that a form was loaded by a web browser. This includes forms that are embedded on a website. So if a webpage where the form is embedded is receiving a lot of traffic, then that would explain the high number of views you have. Let's say you have embedded the form on your home page at the bottom part, as long as the home page was loaded or visited, that would count as a view on the form too.

    The view is also not unique per visitor, it counts as long as the form is loaded, regardless if its the same visitor or same machine. 

    I hope that helps.
