Form Reform UTM

Form Reform UTM records UTM tags and makes them available to Form Reform and Conditional Redirect.

You don't need Form Reform to use this addon!
It can also be used with Conditional Redirect.

You may already be familiar with UTM tags in your campaign tracking and Google Analytics workflow. Form Reform UTM tracks incoming tags in a Concrete CMS cookie or session, then makes those tag values available to Form Reform and Conditional Redirect.

You can now use data value placeholders such as {{utm:source}} in your Form Reform form handlers and in your Conditional Redirect page attributes.

If you use a scheme other than UTM, never fear, the incoming parameters mapped are entirely configurable.

Demonstration

To see Form Reform UTM in action, follow the steps at 

Capturing incoming UTM tags

The default settings for Form Reform UTM will capture the UTM tags:

  • utm_source
  • utm_medium
  • utm_campaign
  • utm_content
  • utm_term

Tags can be captured from GET query parameters and from POST data.

Tag values are then made available as {{data_values}} to both Form Reform and Conditional Redirect with category and keys like {{utm:campaign}}.

Use-cases

Form Reform

  1. Record incoming UTM tags with submitted Form Data.
  2. Adjust response messages or response emails depending on received UTM tags.

Conditional Redirect

  1. Show campaign specific pages depending on received UTM tags.
  2. A/B testing.

Configuration

Form Reform UTM is enabled by installation on your site. It is disabled by uninstalling. 

The tags captured and the way these tags are recorded is fully configurable through the dashboard page at Dashboard > System & Settings > SEO & Statistics > UTM Configuration

The default settings will be good for most uses of UTM. If your campaigns are using fewer tags, you may want to reduce Minimum tags to qualify to match your usage.

For schemes other than UTM, you can specify alternative tags to catch and how they are mapped into {{data_values}} for use by Form Reform and Conditional Redirect

Incoming tags are temporarily stored in either the visitor's session or in a cookie. Form Reform UTM offers two ways of storing tags to a session, either directly or through the core session interface. If you choose to use a cookie, you can adjust the cookie expiry time.

GDPR Considerations

Depending on where you are located and where your visitors are located, the use of UTM tags to track campaigns may be subject to GDPR.

  1. You may need to notify visitors that you are recording UTM tags in addition to notification of any Google Analytics notification.
     
  2. Because Form Reform UTM is installed, this site c5Magic .co.uk will record any incoming utm_test tags in your session data. There are no tracked campaigns linking to this site, so such tracking is meaningless save for demonstrating how Form Reform UTM works.

Reform the way you add new input controls

If you need a specialized template or a custom input element, you can design new templates  or new block types for form elements as you would any block type.

Blocks are easy for third party addition or extension. Block templates and are the first thing any Concrete CMS developer learns to code. They are one of the easiest things to code. The underlying mechanisms are well established and reliable.

Reform what you can do with form data

Form handlers are built about the same extensible plugin system as many of my other addons (Universal Content Puller, Omni Gallery, Extreme Clean ...).

The whole system is aimed at easy extension within Form Reform, by third party addons, by agencies and by site building developers.

Handlers can be easily added to do whatever you want with the form data.

Reform where you can save form data

Saving form data with Form Reform is simply a handler in the processing pipeline. You can save to multiple locations or just one location.

If you need to save data elsewhere, such as to a dedicated table, a table provided through another addon, to another database, send it to an API, forward it to another server, or anywhere you can imagine, you can adapt or develop a form handler to do so.

The complexity of the code depends on where you are saving or sending the data, but wrapping that into a form handler plugin for Form Reform is straight forward.

The Form Reform handler plugin system is designed for easy extension.

Learn with a simple form

While you may have plans to implement some much more complex forms using Form Reform, we strongly recommend you start with a simple form such as our contact form example in order to review the basic principles of using Form Reform before you move onto anything bigger.

  1. Start by submitting the form at Getting Started - Your First Form a few times, even making some deliberate mistakes.
  2. Watch our Getting Started with Form Reform video to see how the form is built.
  3. Read through the rest of Getting Started - Your First Form for more details of how this form is built.
  4. Create a test page on your site to build your own version of Getting Started - Your First Form and experiment.
  5. Develop your test page with some of the concepts introduced by our further examples and experiment with some of the other form inputs.
