Question

Google Analytics + Constant Contact Source of Referral

Howdy!

I have a Zap so new constant contact contacts fire a Google Analytics event. Everything is working great; however, I’d like to be able to either:

  1. Show the path from which the person signed up in GA (as a page or referrer or source) so I can differentiate whether a landing page was used, or
  2. Differentiate in Zapier which form is being used from Constant Contact

Thank you in advance!

Renee

Thanks, Troy. That source value is set by default, and it cannot be changed. 

Regarding the custom field, I was hoping I could add a value to a field and hide it, but it won’t allow me to add a value per form, and it adds the custom_field property whether it’s used in the form output or not.

This seems to be a flaw with (or a hole in) Constant Contact’s API, honestly. It seems the only way to differentiate is to set up a separate form for each list, unfortunately.

Are you able to set this value as part of the CC Form?

 

OR are you able to set a custom field value as part of the CC Form?

 

Sure thing. All I see are list IDs, but those can be used across forms (screen shots, since copy/paste loses formatting):

Can you post what data points are returned from the CC Zap trigger step?
Maybe there is a CC Form ID that can be used.

This is a great tool! I can’t seem to differentiate inline forms from one another using Constant Contact’s available properties. Any other hints that might be helpful?
