Use hidden fields and URL parameters in an embedded Fillout form

Pass URL parameters (hidden fields) to your embedded Fillout forms to personalize text, track UTM campaigns, or track unique submissions for different users.


Passing data to your embedded Fillout form can be used to:
  • Track UTM campaigns
  • Much more!

Pass dynamic URL parameters (hidden fields) to your embed

4. In the Embed code, add data attributes for each URL parameter.

To pass a URL parameter to the embed, add a data-[parameter] attribute to the element in the snippet.
For example, if you’re embedding this form on your site which is a Facebook-related campaign, and you have a URL parameter of ref, you can use data-ref="Facebook". Your embedding code will look something like this:
<div data-fillout-id="cwb3NdqFmJus" data-fillout-embed-type="standard" style="width:100%;height:500px;" data-fillout-inherit-parameters data-fillout-dynamic-resize data-ref="Facebook"></div><script src=""></script>
Note: Embeds will automatically inherit URL parameters from the parent page that they’re on, so if your main site already has these, you simply need to register the parameter in your form to use it.
