Here’s a guide that would help you to track your users and get some analytics data on your forms.
We have a variety of ways on how you can get more information on your users and their submissions. This will allow you to study how your users behave when visiting the page where the form is.
Using Jotform’s Built-in Form Analytics
Jotform has its form analytics, this gets basic information like the number of submissions per day, month, or year, the country where the submission is made, the device use, conversion rates, and others. Here are steps by steps on how you can use this.
Accessing the Form Analytics
Navigate to your My Forms page, select a form, click More and choose Form Analytics.
Familiarizing with the Form Analytics Dashboard
Here’s how the dashboard looks like. It will allow you to sort the data by the current week or month, custom date range, or show everything.
You can click on the main set of tabs which are Views, Responses, Conversion Rate, and Avg. Time.
The next set of tabs is Traffic, Device, Platform, and Location. This will show you more information depending on the option you selected on the main tabs.
On the Traffic tab, it will show you the IP addresses of the visitors, the date when visited it, if they made a response, duration from the time of the visit and the time of the submission, their country, and the device used.
If a user made a response, you can directly view it from there.
This is the tab where you can view the different devices your visitors used.
This will show you the web browsers and the device platforms that your visitors used.
Here we have a small world map showing the distribution of the views and responses your visitors made.
Please note that Jotform’s Form Analytics is still in the “Beta” stage, so we would greatly appreciate any feedback that you have so that we can improve this feature.

Using Google Analytics
If you are well-versed in the art of analytics and you are using Google Analytics in your work, then we have some great news for you. You can add the Google Analytics widget on your form that should allow you to get data on your form’s visitors.

Add Ways on How to Get User Data
We have several widgets that are related to analytics. You can check this specific category on our widgets page: https://www.jotform.com/widgets/category/analytics.
The widgets that I find most useful to our users are the following:
Note that these widgets only fetches the information if a submission is made. If the user only visited your form, then these widgets can’t get any information.
Catch User’s Browser Information
So far those are the available solutions that you can use. We hope that’ll help.
