Forms in VWO lets you analyze how visitors interact with the forms on your website. VWO tracks forms by either the id or name property inside the <form> tag. To access the forms in VWO, go to INSIGHTS > Forms.
The creation and tracking of form in VWO is a four-step process:
- Setting up the pages
- Defining the visitor segment
- Configuring advanced options
- Triggering the form tracking
- Log in to your VWO account.
- Go to INSIGHTS > Forms.
The Forms dashboard appears.
- To create a form, click Create.
NOTE: If you have not created any forms in the past, you will see the option START TRACKING YOUR FORMS in the forms dashboard.
- To change the form name, click the edit icon present next to the New Campaign.
- Now to set up the form tracking, you can choose to fetch the forms either automatically or manually.
Auto detect using a page URL: Select this option to fetch all the forms residing on the specified URL. From the list of fetched forms, select the form you want to track.

- Once you are done fetching the form, the next step is to specify the URL where you want to track the form. To do this, enter the URL in the Enter URL(s) where you want to track the form field.
