User Tracking

Track which pages a user visits prior to submitting a form. This information can be viewed on the individual entry page in the admin and in email notifications.

This plugin replaces the tracking functionality which was removed from the core as of Formidable 2.0 in order to reduce the load on each page.

Download and Setup

  1. Download latest version of Formidable User Tracking.
  2. In your WordPress admin, go to "Plugins" → "Add New" and click the "Upload" link at the top of the page.
  3. Click the "Browse" button and select the zip file you just downloaded. Once the plugin is installed, click "Activate Plugin" or go to the "Plugins" page, find "Formidable User Tracking" and click "Activate".
  4. Once activated, the plugin will immediately start tracking your users. Once a new entry is submitted, go to the Formidable -> Entries page and either view or edit an entry to see the collected data.

Add info in a View

If you would like to add tracking information to a view, you can use a bit of custom code to create a new shortcode that can be used within a view.

add_shortcode('browsing', 'frm_browsing_data');
function frm_browsing_data($args){
    $id = $args['id'];
    global $wpdb;
    $description = $wpdb->get_var( "SELECT description from ". $wpdb->prefix ."frm_items WHERE id=". (int) $id );
    $browsing = maybe_unserialize($description);
    return $browsing['referrer'];

Now in your View, you can use [browsing id="[id]"] where you would like the tracking info to be displayed.
