Add Hidden Fields to Forminator forms

Attributer is a little bit of code you add to your website. It tracks where your visitors are coming from and writes the data into hidden fields you add to your forms which is then captured by Forminator forms and can be sent to your CRM and other tools.

In order for it to work, you need to add a series of hidden fields to your Forminator forms. Here’s how to do it:

Step 1: Open the form you want Attributer to work with

In your WordPress admin panel, select the ‘Forms’ option from the left-hand navigation menu and then click the ‘Edit’ button on the form you want Attributer to work with

Step 2: Add the first hidden field to the form

To add a hidden field to the form, click the add field button below your current form fields.

In the popup that appears, select the ‘Hidden’ field option to add a hidden field to your form.

In the Field Options dialog that appears, enter the following information:

  • Label = Channel
  • Default Value = Custom Value
  • Custom Value = [channel]

It should ultimately look a bit like this:

Once done, click the ‘Apply’ button to finish adding your first hidden field.

Step 3: Repeat the above process to add 5x more fields

Next, you need to repeat the above process to add 5x more hidden fields to your form.

Here are the configuration settings for each additional hidden field:

Hidden Field #2

  • Field Label = Channel Drilldown 1
  • Default Value = Custom Value
  • Custom Value = [channeldrilldown1]

Hidden Field #3

  • Field Label = Channel Drilldown 2
  • Default Value = Custom Value
  • Custom Value = [channeldrilldown2]

Hidden Field #4

  • Field Label = Channel Drilldown 3
  • Default Value = Custom Value
  • Custom Value = [channeldrilldown3]

Hidden Field #5

  • Field Label = Landing Page
  • Default Value = Custom Value
  • Custom Value = [landingpage]

Hidden Field #6

  • Field Label = Landing Page Group
  • Default Value = Custom Value
  • Custom Value = [landingpagegroup]

You should then have a form that looks a bit like this:

That’s all you need to do when it comes to adding the hidden fields to your Forminator forms. Attributer will now write the marketing channel attribution data for each visitor into those hidden fields.

You can now map these fields to your CRM, email marketing tool, etc. to send the data where you need it to go
