Overall form analytics
The overall analytics provide complete information on the performance of web forms by offering various statistics. This allows you to understand the form behavior and compare the web forms in a module to identify the most successful one. The analytics are classified in the following sections.
Submissions based on form
This analytic gives you an insight based on the submissions received via the web forms. You can see the number of submissions received across all the web forms created for a module.
From this section, you can gather the following information:
- Total Submissions: Displays the total number of submissions made using the web forms.
- Max Conversion Rate: Displays the web form that has the maximum conversion rate.

The following metrics are also captured:
- Top Country: Displays the country with the highest number of submissions.
- Number of Countries Submitted: Displays the total number of countries where the web form was submitted.
You can also view the metrics in a table.
Leads, converted leads, and deals based on form

Previous Revenue and Growth Rate will only be available if a time-based filter is specified.
Webform Analytics based on URL
Zoho CRM offers complete, detailed insights based on URL. That is, all of the parameters discussed above — Submissions, Region, Module insights — can be viewed for each URL where your form is being tracked in CRM.
Assume that a company called Zylker Tours and Travels has created a Lead Enquiry form in CRM and published this on the Home, About Us, Contact Us as well as Pricing Page of their website. To track submissions on these pages, they would add all these page links on the Form Location URL section in the webform settings.
In general, CRM will begin to track overall visits and submissions on your webforms. Going one step further, if you wish to track analytics and look at insights for each page where the form is published, you can enable an option called "Enable URL based Analytics" in your webform settings.
CRM will now begin to monitor visits, submissions and other activity on these pages and you will get detailed insights for each page entered. When you click View Analytics on the respective web form, you will now find a new dropdown list called All URLs. So now, the details such as Submissions based on Device, partial/complete submissions etc can be viewed for each page that you have the form on.
This will help you analyze which set of pages get the most traction, which pages get the least visits and so on. This information would also be valuable in making key decisions about your campaigns. You will not only be able to see the submissions based on URL, but also region, and record creation based on a chosen URL. For example, the following screenshot shows the webform insights for the About Us page alone.
The Analytics Based on URL is available for both Enterprise and Ultimate Editions of Zoho CRM.
- In the Enterprise Edition, you will have an overview of Submissions based on URL, as presented below. A summary of the stats for Visits, Unique Visitors, Starters, Submissions and Conversion rate will be available in the form of a table. If you would like to view detailed analytics and charts for all parameters such as visits by region, submissions, records created by URL, you need to upgrade to the Ultimate Edition.
- In the Ultimate Edition, you will get detailed insights based on URL. That is, for the CRM to show detailed insights for all parameters and charts such as Submissions, Regions and Record creation based on URL, (and for the All URLs dropdown list to appear), you need to be on the Ultimate Edition of CRM.
What is "Undefined URL"?
The entry "Undefined URL" refers to a page (or a group of pages) from which CRM is able to track visits and entries but the exact page address is unknown. For example, if you have published the webform on Home, About and Contact Us pages. In CRM, you have submitted Home and About Us pages for tracking, but you have missed to enter Contact Us page. There could be 15 entries from Contact Us page, but since you haven't tracked this page, CRM will present these 15 entries under an entry called "Undefined URL".
- Hence, you must ensure that each source URL (the page where you have embedded the form) is added on the Form Location URL inside the Webform Settings.
- In case you have failed to add a source URL, then CRM will still track the visits and submissions, however since you haven't entered the specific URL, the stats will be presented under en entry called "undefined URL".
- In such a cases, we recommend that you double check details of where you have hosted the webform and make sure to enter all the URLs so that CRM can offer complete insights.
What cases determine the creation of the entry "Undefined URL"?
- While opening the submission based URL for users, all the previous data will be grouped under undefined URL.
- If the user changes the location URL from * to the defined URL, then all the analytics data gathered earlier under * will be grouped under "Undefined URL" .
- When a certain URL is removed, the form analytics for the removed page is moved under "Undefined URL".
- When data is received from any URL other than those mentioned in the webform settings, or from blocked sites or in cases of a domain/path mismatch, they will be grouped under "Undefined URL."
View analytics for individual webforms
The analytics for individual web forms in a module can be obtained by clicking the View Analytics button next to the web form.
The webforms are categorized into three groups:
Based on submissions - The submission statistics of the form such as number of visits, average time spent on a form etc., can be viewed.
Based on region -The statistics about a webform's performance across regions like number of countries submitted and top country among the submissions can be viewed.
Based on the module -The submission statistics about a form's performance that is associated to a module like number of leads, conversion rate, validation failed etc., can be seen in this analysis.
Based on submissions
Information related to webform submissions will be displayed in this tab.This section is divided into:
This displays the number of form submissions received on a particular day. The data can be filtered as daily, weekly, or monthly.
The following key metrics related to form submissions are captured:
- Total Submissions: The total number of submissions received for the web form.
- Average Submissions: The daily average number of submissions received for the web form.
- Maximum Conversion: The date with the highest conversion rate for the web form. The conversion rate is the percentage of visitors who visited the web form and submitted it.
- Maximum Dropout: The date with the lowest conversion rate for the website. The dropout rate is the percentage of visitors who visited your web form but did not submit it.
Partial vs. complete submission
This metic allows you to track how submissions are made via your web form and whether all the fields are filled in or if any are left blank.
Field Based Analytics
Field based analytics provides chart that shows the performance of every field in a form.
There are 4 types of statistics,
Form Filled Rate
Time Spent on Fields
Fields Correction Rate
Fields Drop Rate
Note: These statistics are available only in the Ultimate edition.
Fields filled rate
Sometimes, visitors may skip certain fields in your web form. This analysis tells you which fields are always filled in your web form and which ones are not. If some fields in a web form are often skipped, you can replace them to get better results.
Time Spent on Fields
This analysis provides you with information on how much time the visitor has spent filling a particular field. With this chart you can thus understand the visitors' pain points that causes the delay and address them.
For instance, you can provide a tool tip to help visitors understand what the field is about, change the field label, provide a picklist instead of a descriptive field, etc.., to facilitate quicker form submission
Fields Correction Rate
The number of corrections the customer makes in a field is captured in the Field Correction Rate chart.
For example, while filling the phone number, visitors may miss the country code or use incorrect structure in the email address that they have to often rectify before submitting the form. These frequent corrections may cause a customer to lose interest and leave the form. In order to help them avoid these corrections you can use a tooltip or provide a place holder for reference.
Fields Drop Rate
Fields Drop Rate analysis helps to identify the fields that may be prompting the customers to abandon the form. A visitor might be unwilling to share personal or secure information like Date of Birth, Credit card details, Mobile number, etc. in the form. Having these fields or mandating these fields may prompt the customer to quit the form half-way through. This analysis will help you identify the fields that the visitor last interacted with, so that you can remove or make it optional resulting lesser dropouts.
The field filled order will monitor the order in which the visitors fill a form and shows the top 3 orders. For example: In many forms, the mandatory fields are placed at the top so customers would often fill those and submit the form while skipping other information. Likewise, some customers may fill the fields on the top and bottom part of the form before filling in other information and submit.These type of behaviour are monitored and the top 3 patterns are categorized.
