Google Analytics

Formsort has begun it's transition to GA4 from Universal Analytics, which has stopped being supported by Google as of July 1, 2023.

During this time:

  • Any GA4 properties must be loaded through our Google Tag Manager integration.

  • Users will still have the option to load Universal Analytics properties independently of GTM, using the instructions below.

  • If you plan to use GTM, load your Universal Analytics properties through that instead.

Answer payloads cannot be sent to Google Analytics. Instead, if answers are desired when events are captured, you can send answer payloads to Google services using Google Tag Manager. A solitary Google Analytics setup will only allow event tracking.

Be sure to visit our page Analytics Events for more information about the events that can be tracked in your GA integration.

Adding a Google Analytics 4 (GA4) Property

As stated at the beginning of this article, at this time GA4 must be loaded through our GTM Integration. In order to do this, you're going to need the Measurement ID of the property.

The format will be an alphanumeric G-XXXXXXXXX.

If you need to create a GA4 property, you can see Google's documentation here.

Here's how you can find your Measurement ID:

In the left-hand sidebar menu of the Analytics homescreen, open the Admin menu.

In the second column of the menu, Property, open Data Streams. At this menu, open Data Stream you've created for Formsort.

From this menu, note your Measurement ID and head to our Google Tag Manager article to complete the GTM -> GA4 setup.

Adding a Universal Analytics property

Universal Analytics has been deprecated by Google as of July 1, 2023. Please see our section above on adding a GA4 property.
