How to Capture Referrer URL

October 25, 2021

The Referrer URL is basically the web page’s address where a person clicked a link that sent them to your page where your form is embedded. In other words, it’s the webpage that a person was on right before they landed on your page.

Note that if you wish to track the URL where the form was submitted, you have to use our Get Form Page URL widget (Get Form Page URL).

How to Capture Referrer URL?

Capturing the Referrer URL is super easy. Follow these two simple steps.

1. While in the form builder, open the Form Elements panel on the left side.

2. Go to the Widgets tab, search Get Referrer, and add this widget to your form. That’s it!

Here’s an example submission with a referrer URL captured by the widget.
