Hi,

i have a question. I know i can filter contact by date when the subscribed to a certain list.

But I’d also love to have the information on what date a person submitted a specific form.

How do I do it?

    Hi there!

    We do not have a date filter for form submissions at this time, but you can always set up a custom field that will update with the current date when that specific form is submitted.

    For example, if you need to track when someone submitted a form for an estimate, you can use the Submits a form start trigger in an automation, and select the estimate form name. Following that trigger, you can add an action, and select Contacts > Update Contact. You can then have the automation update the custom date field with the current date, and use that for any searches or segments going forward.

    Here is a quick article that walks through how to create custom fields, just in case you haven’t added them to your account yet:

    Hi Meghan,

    thanks for the info. I thought so. Only with custom date fields for each specific form. I still wish date of form submission could be visible in form statistics. Why? Since i have a large number of forms. One for each webinar, one for each contact form, one for each guide, demo download, etc where is crucial that i know exact date for the exact form. Adding all this custom fields would create a mess due to large number of different forms… in my opinion.

    Thanks for your kind reply once again,

    BR,

    Same scenario here. Such a feature would be very helpful.
