Source at time of form fill out

Hi All,

The form Query parameters and referrer urls are recorded and kept in the activity record at the time of form fill.  I find this info very useful for reporting but cannot find a way to easily access this info.

This leaves me making smart lists Filled out form, form is x with a constraint on the querystring to report by source.

We record most recent and original sources into db fields but to report on a form fill and the source that accompanies that fill seem frustratingly difficult.  And it seems this is the most useful info.

Have I missed something.  I just want the report on the source that resulted in the form fill.  Any one found an easy way?

thanks

Hi Mark

You can capture the query parameters through hidden fields in the form.

For the referrer URL, if you want to store it in a field, you will need to augment your form behavior with some JS.

How would you persist the value without having or appending a field for each form?  I dont want to overwrite the value but it seems its stored in the form fill activity.  You just cant access that value or put it in a report.

You are correct. The raw Activity Log Details contain more point-in-time information (though it is aged out after 90 days) than you can report on through the UI. You can only get at this info if you download the Activity Log via API; there's no canned report that centers this info.

Appending the data, using Change Data Value, to a rolling history field (Textarea field) is what most of us do to have a persistent audit trail on the lead. Not pretty but it fills some gaps.
