Trigger Google analytics goal on webform submitAnswered
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.
Client needs to track search words that convert to visitors who contact them.
Thank you in advance.
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,
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 :-)
@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.
Here's a simple solution I just posted:
It's not elegant or bullet-proof, but it works 99% of the time, is easy to implement, and requires no messing with the Podio API.
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.
Andreas Huttenrauch from Globiflow/Globimail has a great, quick fix solution found here: http://www.globimail.com/blog/podio-webforms-and-google-analytics-goals.php
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
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&tid=(GA TRACKING ID)&cid=555&t=event&ec=podio-app&ea=Item-view&el=" + assetID + "&dp=" + app
out = out + " >"
