How to Set Up Gravity Forms Tracking in Google Analytics

When you start setting up Gravity Forms tracking, you should know that Google Analytics doesn’t track your online form conversions by default.

To track Gravity Forms, you have 2 options. First, use MonsterInsights WordPress plugin and automatically track your forms. And second, you can manually set up form tracking in Google Analytics.

The first method is the easiest and you don’t need an expert or have to edit code to set up Gravity Forms tracking in Google Analytics.

On the other hand, the second method is a far less user-friendly approach. This involves creating custom events and defining them for your forms, which requires coding and some expertise in using Analytics.

You can also use Google Tag Manager to track form conversions, but you’ll need to learn the entire process, which can be time-consuming. And if you make any mistake in the setup process, you won’t be able to accurately track your form conversions.

With that, just follow these steps to configure Gravity Forms tracking in Google Analytics in no time.

Step 1: Set Up MonsterInsights WordPress Plugin

The first step for tracking Gravity Forms conversions is to install MonsterInsights on your WordPress website.

MonsterInsights is the best WordPress Google Analytics plugin. It’s a beginner-friendly, yet powerful, tool for tracking your WordPress website analytics.
