Add hidden fields to Formsite
Formsite is a powerful form-building tool that you can use on any website.
Attributer works with Formsite to pass through UTM parameters and other attribution data on your leads. Follow the instructions below to set it up:
Step 1: Open the form you want Attributer to work with
In your Formsite account, click ‘Edit’ next to the form you want Attributer to work with.
Step 2: Add a hidden field to the form
To add a ‘Hidden’ field to the form, simply drag and drop the ‘Hidden’ field type from the left-hand menu into your form.
We recommend adding this field below the other fields on your form that you want your visitors to complete.
Step 3: Configure the field
After you’ve dragged and dropped a hidden field into your form, a popup will appear asking for information about this new form field.
To configure the field for Attributer, you’ll need to give the field both a ‘Label’ and a ‘Default Value’
To give the field the correct label, simply type the word ‘Channel’ into the Label field.
To give the field a ‘Default Value’, select the Default Value tab and then add ‘[channel]’ into the default value field (including the square brackets)
Step 4: Repeat steps 2 and 3 to add more hidden fields
You need to add an additional 5 fields to your Formsite form (on top of the one you just added) in order to capture all the data Attributer provides.
So continue to drag and drop more hidden fields into your form and set the Label and Default Values as per below:
Hidden Field #2
- Label = Channel Drilldown 1
- Default Value = [channeldrilldown1]
Hidden Field #3
- Label = Channel Drilldown 2
- Default Value = [channeldrilldown2]
Hidden Field #4
- Label = Channel Drilldown 3
- Default Value = [channeldrilldown3]
Hidden Field #5
- Label = Landing Page
- Default Value = [landingpage]
Hidden Field #6
- Label = Landing Page Group
- Default Value = [landingpagegroup]
Step 5: Embed the form on your website
Now that you have added the hidden fields to your form, you can navigate to the ‘Share’ tab, select the ‘Embed’ option from the left-hand menu and copy and paste the code onto your website.
