Hi @Shariq M,

 

if/when we are here to help someone, who is using non-standard installation and who doesn't know tje GTM, the best help would be auto tracking.

I have good experience with GTM4WP, too but lately I experienced the black screen of death, when updating WordPress, the Ronneby theme (never ever use it!) and the GTM4WP plugin, so I had to code it manually, which functions, but it's some p.i.t.a.!

 

Best

Hi @Sandaruwan S,

 

do you use the Google Analytics code or via Google Tag Manager?

In first case you use the additional settings (event handler) in the ContactForm7 setup, in second you use that also, but with the data layer.

1. http://contactform7.com/tracking-form-submissions-with-google-analytics/ (I googled that for you)

2. http://www.ganotes.com/track-wordpress-contact-form-7-with-google-tag-manager/ (I googled that for you)

3. Or you could even have looked it up here (I used the search for you)

 

Good luck!

 

Best (and a happy new year)

 

Arne

Dear @Sandaruwan S

 

are you using Google tag manager? there is nice plugin for wordpress:

once you have tag manager plugin installed you can use the below guide to fire tag on form submission,

Why not go for GTM? should not take much time and is very helpful!

Now I will use GTM,

 

So How can I track a form submission? and set it as a Goal in Analytics.

Because GTM is NOT as easy as always promised and you have to know and understand HTML AND CSS AND DOM AND JAVASCRIPT!

And GTM4WP plugin is excellent work by Tamas Geiger, but it doesn't function always with all WordPress themes.

Sorry @Sandaruwan S,

 

I've overseen the fact that you DON'T use ContactForm7.

So the answer is still event handling, but the question is:

Which form handler or plugin do you use for your forms and how are they configured?
