How to Track Form Submissions With Facebook Pixel

September 26, 2023

If you’re using Facebook ads, then you’re probably familiar with Facebook Pixel. According to Facebook, “The Facebook pixel is a snippet of JavaScript code that allows you to track visitor activity on your website. It works by loading a small library of functions which you can use whenever a site visitor takes an action (called an event) that you want to track (called a conversion). Tracked conversions appear in the Facebook Ads Manager and in the Facebook Analytics dashboard, where they can be used to measure the effectiveness of your ads, to define custom audiences for ad targeting, for dynamic ads campaigns, and to analyze that effectiveness of your website’s conversion funnels.” 

You can read more about Facebook Pixel in their guide:

Facebook Pixel is common on many advertising platforms. It helps you track the behavior of your website visitors so you’ll know their interests and be able to optimize your campaign. 

Installing Facebook Pixel is easy. With its many embed options, you can install the pixel on just about any platform. Our developers have built a Facebook Pixel widget that you can easily add to your form. The widget has a list of standard events you can select from, allowing you to track the events you prefer.

To install Facebook Pixel on your form, follow these steps:

  1. In the Form Builder, click Add Form Element on the top left of the page.
