Trigger Google analytics goal on webform submit

Hi all,

 

Is it possible to trigger an event goal in Google analytics when a new submission is completed through an embedded webform? (

 

Also I will need help setting this up probably, if anybody is able to do so.

 

Context

Client needs to track search words that convert to visitors who contact them.

 

Thank you in advance.

Hi Dan,

Webforms is push-button feature that doesn't allow for much customization. Google analytics tracking is not available for webforms. If you need this or other advanced features you can always create your own form and submit content to an app using our API. This does of course require some knowledge of programming.

If you cannot work with the API yourself you can always contact one of our technical partners who will be happy to help: https://company.podio.com/partners-find

All the best,

Andreas

So if you add a tracking code in the Thank you message box (that says allows for some HTML), that will not work?

No, "some html" includes stuff like bold, italic and headlines, but not script tags which is how tracking is usually done.

It's not too hard to use a regular website form and then populate Podio with the API, but an easier work-around would be a simple webhook on item.create which could call a page on your website to trigger the Google Analytics Goal Conversion.

The less coding, the less chance of things breaking in the future :-)

Great advice Andreas, thank you so much!

If its not to much trouble, a second question:

Are you aware of any Donation Management commercial Podio app?

@Daniel Horhocea Sorry - I'm not aware of any, but if you contact me through www.globi.ca with a scope document of what you're looking for, we might be able to build you one.

implementing a google analytics triggering in podio webforms would be crucial !!  Most of the companies use podio webforms in colaboration with google adwords !

Is there a way to redirect the webform submission to a thankyou page on my site?  I can put the Google Analytics or any other tracking code on that Thankyou page and as long is the form redirects to that page after successful submission (instead of just displaying a message) everything works fine.  Is this possible?  If it requires custom coding, I'll pay to get it done - let me know.

Yes, adding a simple thank you page redirect would solve this entire problem. I attempted to add a meta redirect in the thank you message with no luck. If you could redirect to a new page you could use that page to cue a goal.

You can now do all of this through Google's Tag Manager by setting up events and then calling an Image event through a calculated field... Tons of events supported. Here's an overvlew

https://www.optimizesmart.com/event-tracking-guide-google-analytics-simplified-version/

 

var x = @Unique ID
var insuredName = @Insured Name:
var assetID = @Master Asset ID: + ':'
var app = 'Inventory_SSOR'
out = ''

assetID = assetID + insuredName.replace(/[^A-Za-z0-9]/g, ':');

out = out + "<img src="
out = out + "https://www.google-analytics.com/collect?v=1&amp;tid=(GA TRACKING ID)&amp;cid=555&amp;t=event&amp;ec=podio-app&amp;ea=Item-view&amp;el=" + assetID + "&amp;dp=" + app
out = out + " >"
