Capture URL of visitors who submit a survey?

Capture URL of visitors who submit a survey?

I've launched a feedback slider survey. It would be great to know which page a user is on when they decide to take the survey.

I searched extensively and couldn't find anything related to this. Is it not possible?

    It is saved as embedded data the same way it is saved in a survey project. So it will only save for completed surveys, and it will be stored along side their response. Works for any export format- .pdf, excel, SPSS, whatever.

    Make sure you re-add it in your survey flow, too. Or else it won't capture. Simply add those fields into the survey flow and they will be set from the URL:

    If you want to know when they interacted with the site intecept, you will need to set up your website analytics to trigger an event when the site intercept is interacted with. Then you can see what pages users were on when they clicked in your analytics data, but you won't have survey responses.

    Thanks for the assistance. I had already enabled "Current Page URL" as embedded data for the intercept. Where should I be able to see that data? Of course, it would make sense if I can add a new column for the actual survey submissions, but what I titled the embedded data isn't available.

    There has been one completed survey submission yet the page they came from isn't noted anywhere.

    In the intercept, I have the name of "Current Page URL" set to "Page." When I look at the survey results, the "Page" column isn't an option :/. Is the intercept and survey separated from each other?

    Yes they are seperate: I reviewed my last statement and added some stuff, I think we're just typing at the same time :) Sorry about that. Check my old response and lmk if you have another question.

    It doesn't matter that you decided to name it "Page". Just in your survey flow, label the embedded data category "Page" as well so it knows what it is looking for. It's going to take it right from the URL query string.
