Troubleshooting multi-page Piotnet Forms / PAFE + Insiteful tracking
By default, multi-step forms built with Piotnet Forms or PAFE will render without a <form> tag surrounding the various form fields (ie. <input>, <select>). To avoid picking up stray data (ie. site search bars), Insiteful does not usually track standalone inputs.
Moreover, the “Places” field in Piotnet / PAFE includes built-in autocomplete powered by Google Maps. Tracking these kinds of forms & fields can be tricky with PAFE, or any software other than Insiteful, for that matter. Fortunately, our team has pioneered a 1-line solution to make it simple —
In order to properly track either of these edge cases and prevent missing form entries, you simply need to copy and paste the extra line below after the usual install code:
Thanks to this simple workaround pioneered by our engineers, you can easily & reliably track any multi-page Piotnet and PAFE Forms with Insiteful by adding just one line. The easiest way to do this is to install a plugin like this and paste the line above, and you’ll be all set!
