I'm looking to add event tracking to the sign up forms, so that we can track newsletter subscribes as an event in Google Analytics. Is there any documentation on how to do this? I dug around the community, but didn't see anything. Thanks.

Hi Mike -- I think this is what you're looking for! You can add Google Analytics to your signup form on the Track It tab.

Emily, how does one track signups made with the WordPress plugin as Goals in Google Analytics?

The code not viewable anywhere in the plugin settings, and I couldn't find it in the Emma admin area. It is possible to track signups as events when using the plugin?

Hey Vicki -- Let's see. I hopped into a test account to see if I could nail down the specific steps for you:

You'll want to find the Plugins option in your dashboard:


Then, find the Emma for Wordpress plugin and choose the settings option:



That will give you access to the signup form code where you can add your google tracking code. Let me know if that doesn't work for you.

Emily, the plugin is installed but there is no field for "signup form code".

Vicki, John, the plugin author here.  I'm sorry you are having difficulty finding the tracking code.  You can do it under the "advanced settings" tab.

John - I'm not clear what code to use. I tried the code I use for Contact Form 7 in that field, but as you can see in the screenshot below, rather than fire it displayed as text when I tested the form. I thought on_set_ok was native to WP. Can you offer any guidance here?

I posted the question above under a different account name, but hoping it won't take 10 months to get a reply this time.

Hey Vicki, 

I wanted to post on here as well. As Emma was not the author of this plugin, we don't have the info you need.  

John, do you have any insight on Vicki's question?

Vicki,

Great question!  Unfortunately, at this time, this functionality is not available.
