Tracking in Zoho Forms - Overview

Choose the appropriate tracking

Zoho Forms offers a variety of tracking techniques. This walkthrough will help you choose the right tracking technique based on your requirement.

Basic Parameter Tracking

If your requirement is to only track basic parameters of the form like referrer name, refer to this section.

Referrer Name Tracking

Referrals are tracked by default and will be set as the website's domain, the website URL, or even be set as empty according to your website's referrer policy.
You can track custom referrals as well, by adding a tracking parameter at the end of your Form Permalink (URL) before embedding the code in your webpage.

Limitation:
The referrer name set by default will be set according to the value of the document.referrer which in turn, is controlled by the referral policy on your website.

Tracking with UTM Parameters

UTM Tracking helps you identify the source from which your respondents visited your website and submitted an entry through an embedded Zoho Form. 
Zoho Forms provides two options to track website visitors:
Using the basic tracking code generated, you can track the the default UTM parameters and the custom parameters that are passed in the website URL. The default parameters that will be tracked when you set UTM tracking in your form are:
utm_source
utm_medium
utm_campaign
utm_content
utm_term
The advanced tracking code generated will capture the source using:
-UTM parameters available in the website URL (both default and custom params)
-Traffic from Google Ads using the gclid parameter in the URL
You can also auto-track traffic from different search engines. When custom parameter 'referrername' is set, the website URL will be taken as referrer. 

Advanced Tracking with Google

If you want to track conversions, events, or push the UTM parameters received to Google Analytics, refer to this section. 

Google Analytics

Features:
  1. UTM parameters can be captured and passed to Google Analytics. (Refer to the FAQs for more details)
  2. Any parameter in the URL can be captured and passed to Google Analytics.
  3. Traffic source information, such as, Paid Searches, Organic Search, Direct can be captured in Google Analytics.
  4. Any GTM supported event (Eg: Page view, custom events) can be marked as goal.
  5. Same session can be maintained with the website it is embedded to, if the website and form are in the same domain.
