Categorising forms

SOLVE

Hi,

 

I feel it would be good to be able to categorise Hubspot forms with tags or something similar that could then be chosen / applied through lists, workflows and lead scoring.

 

As an example, we're interested to know if a contact has downloaded a marketing resource and perhaps attended a webinar, but as we create a number of different forms with resources and events behind them, we can't create a list that take in every possibility. Categorising them or adding tags would help with this to get a more generic overview of their actions.

 

Thanks,

Jo

Hi @JTurrell,

 

I agree, this would be a useful feature. You could submit this to the HubSpot Ideas section of the community: https://community.hubspot.com/t5/HubSpot-Ideas/idb-p/HubSpot_Ideas

 

The product team reviews these requests based on their popularity.

 

As far as workarounds go, I'm a big fan of clear naming conventions which are essentially tags inside the form name. There is a great thread on naming conventions here: https://community.hubspot.com/t5/Tips-Tricks-Best-Practices/Best-Naming-Convention-Practices/m-p/246...

 

Hope this helps!

Hi @JTurrell 

 

Just to add to @karstenkoehler's point about naming conventions. Have you considered implementing a forms strategy/framework? It's probably something that deserves its own litte thread or AMA on the community, but depending on the amount of content offers you produce over time, the possible customer journeys, etc. I have seen two major approaches used by customers:

  1. Create and use forms based on journey points, i.e Awareness, Consideration, Decision.
  2. Forms based around content types, i.e. e-Book, Webinar, Tradeshow, Whitepaper.

You would then create these forms - sticking with option two, you would end up with ONE e-Book, one Webinar, one Tradeshow, one Whitepaper form. Use progressive fields to ensure contact information gets enriched by repeat submissions. This approach would allow you to:

  1. Keep the number of forms needed to a minimum
  2. Report on top level submissions by form content type / category
  3. In combination with "submitted form on a specific page" allow for specific follow ups and list building, and segmentation.

Let me know if you have questions about that.

Hello. Thanks for your suggestions.

 

An issue that springs to mind for us with option 2 would be that we often have multiple downloadable resources available at once which we automatically redirect to once someone completes a form. This is why we have multple forms for resources, which does get a little messy when trying to understand lead interactions.
