Form API Campaign Tracking
Apr 21, 2017 11:31 AM
Interested in possibly setting up some forms on a website using the Form API. (There is some complex logic that would be out of the scope of using the embedded form version). I see based on this post that if you pass a pageID, you can track the form submission via the API as associated with a landing page, which, in turn, is associated with a campaign. You can then see the data in the overall campaign report.
But what if I have a form via the Form API that should be attached to a campaign, but the campaign does NOT have a landing page associated with it? (Perhaps, lets say, general webform submissions to the site that would be setup as a “Website General Contact” campaign?) How might I go about tracking submissions in this way? We would like it to be associated with a campaign so that we can see performance as a whole of all elements associated with a “Website General Contact” campaign. Hubspot support directed me to the developer forums, as they could not supply direct API support at this time.
I have experience with Pardot’s form handlers that allow for this very situation - (form handlers are associated with campaigns as a whole vs landing pages themselves) - so I’m wondering if there is a way to duplicate this functionality through Hubspot? Being able to see items at a campaign level through reporting is important for our use case.
Any suggestions are very much appreciated!
