Want to know how well are your forms and surveys are performing? Well, now you can do it fast and easy with the A1Surveys In-App Analytics. Get the best results from your forms and surveys, improve them to increase your conversion rates, and much more. With just a few steps, you can start tracking your forms and in real-time!
In-App Analytics offers two kinds of reports, each with a different approach:
- Performance Analytics
- Submissions Analytics
The Performance Analytics report lets you measure how effective is your form or survey is at converting visitors.
The funnel: KPIs
The funnel in this report represents how many visitors make it to the next conversion stage.
- Users: Visitors who landed on the Form. The first step in the funnel is the number of unique users that landed on the form. This number represents the total amount of people that visited the form/survey and acts as a baseline for the rest of the funnel steps.
- Began Filling: Users who interacted with the Form.
The next step in the funnel shows how many unique users have interacted with the form beside the users that visited your page.
The interaction will be considered an action with any of the input fields in the form (attempting to fill them out, change them, or any other).
This step tells you how many people made some effort to fill out this form but weren’t able to make it through to the next step (a successful conversion). We recommend looking at this segment very closely because the visitor that has made it to this step but not to the next; has displayed an interest in the form but due to confusion, form validation errors, or other reasons, decided not to go any further.
- Conversions: Users Converted SuccessfullyThis number represents the unique users that successfully converted the form by completing every stage of the funnel.
- Conversion Rate: This is the average number of conversions per user, shown as a percentage.
The Timeline represents the first three indicators through the time.
These three graphs grouped the number of users, interactions and conversions in that time unit. For example, at a glance we can know that on Mondays we have more conversions than on Fridays.
The Conversion Time chart shows on average how much time users are spending filling out your survey or form or survey.
Conversion Time Average
The Conversion Time Average chart shows the average time per day that users are spending filling out your form or survey.
Conversion vs. Abandonment
This chart makes a comparison between the number of conversions and the number of abandonments.
Abandonments: This rate represents the number of unique users that interacted with the form (start filling it) but, for one reason or another, didn’t send it.
This chart shows you the percentage of abandonments over time.
Abandonment Rate: This is the average number of abandonments per users, shown as a percentage.
Unlike the previous report, the Submissions Analytics report focuses on submissions and for example, let you know at a glance the number of submissions that are made in time, how many sessions are performed by your users to submit the form or which country and city have made more submissions.
With the Timeline you can see how many submissions are made each day.
Sessions before submission
Each time a user visits a site, A1Surveys sets a session counter: Set to 1 on the user’s first visit, 2 on the user’s second visit, etc. So with this chart you’ll know the average number of visits by users before sending the form. This KPI will help you better understand the behavior of your users
The Analytics system generates a geographic map of your form’s submissions. Geographic maps can help determine top markets, the effectiveness of offline Campaignsand where to target special offers and advertisements.
A world map is shown with each country with a shade of blue.
Next to the World Map is a listing of the major cities where users have made a submission and the number of submissions made.
Submissions by hour
With this chart you can see the time of day that the submissions are made. Some websites will experience peaks of traffic through the day depending on the content they publish and the audience they target. For example, facebook will be busy during the evening, while a B2B website will be busier during the daytime.
This chart summarises domains that send traffic to your form or survey and the number of submissions.
By type referrer
Here you can see the number of submissions and where the participant came from.
- internal, unknown, search, invalid, social. email
By device category
With this chart you can see the number of submissions and on which device they were made.
- smartphone, tablet, desktop, console, TV
With this chart you can see the number of submissions by the type of operating system.
Here you can see the number of submissions by the Browser.
Determine the number of submissions made from a mobile device.
In-App Analytics Charts are data driven and reactive, therefore providing instant feedback on user’s interaction.
Just click on one of the charts and the rest of them will show the segment reporting.
For example, on Analytics report click on Monday and you will see how the charts update their data.

To disable analytics, you must:
- Go to the Form Manager.
- Click the Actions button of the Form and then Settings
- Change Analytics from On to Off or vice versa.
