|Is it possible to grab utm source for use in hidden form fields?|
| 11:59 am on Sep 16, 2010 (gmt 0)|
I'm using Google Analytics utm_source, utm_medium, and utm_campaign to track some paid links on referring websites through to my site.
Typically a person will land on the site, visit a few pages, and hopefully submit a lead.
When they submit a lead, I'd like to be able to get the utm_source, utm_medium, and utm_campaign values from Google (if present) and send them via hidden form fields.
Is it possible to grab these variables from Google Analytics on the form page?
