Track HubSpot Form Submissions
with Google Tag Manager and Google Analytics


HubSpot is a powerful Customer Relationship Management (CRM) tool that is favoured by a number of our clients – most notably in manufacturing and agricultural space. Hubspot brings together analytics, pipeline management, marketing analytics and sales conversion data – it’s an incredibly powerful tool.

We use HubSpot to enable our clients to manage their Existing Customer Marketing (ECM) activity as well as to optimise our digital marketing campaigns including Paid Search, Banner Ads, and Social Media Marketing campaigns – particularly when we’re looking to drive leads and prospective customers to our clients sales teams.

HubSpot can integrate with a range of website Content Management Systems – unfortunately for us and our developer, HubSpot likes to utilise iFrames to populate the forms, which can mean that measuring Form Submissions in HubSpot can be a bit trickier than normal.

If you can’t measure it, you can’t manage it

If the in-market activity is designed to deliver leads and prospective customers, then it’s absolutely essential we’re able to measure this alongside all the activity we’re running, so we created this guide to help you measure HubSpot form submissions in Google Analytics using Google Tag Manager.


To ensure we’re successfully measuring HubSpot form submissions we need to:-

  • Step 1:- Create a Custom HTML tag in Google Tag Manager.
  • Step 2:- Add a dataLayer variable to read the form’s GUID.
  • Step 3:- Create a trigger that fires on the form success event.
  • Step 4:- Add a Google Analytics Event Tag that reports the data to GA4

Step 1:- Create a Custom HTML tag in Google Tag Manager

Tag Type:- Custom HTML

Tag Name:- Forms – HS Success Listener

Triggering:- All Pages

Custom HTML tag content:-

<script type="text/javascript">
window.addEventListener("message", function(event) {
if(event.data.type === 'hsFormCallback' && event.data.eventName === 'onFormSubmitted') {
'event': 'hubspot-form-success',
'hs-form-guid': event.data.id

As per the below screenshot:-

Add custom HTML in Google Tag Manager to measure HubSpot Form submissions

This will ensure that every page has the custom script injected into the page – this script pushes hs-form-guid to the dataLayer once a successful HubSpot submission occurs.

Step 2:- Add a dataLayer variable to read the HubSpot form’s GUID.

GTM Name:- Forms – hs-form-guid

Variable Type:- Data Layer Variable

Variable Name:- hs-form-guid

As per the below screenshot:-

Create a data layer variable to read the HubSpot forms GUID

Now we have a variable that matches hs-form-guid in dataLayer.

Step 3:- >Create a trigger that fires on the form success event.

Trigger Type:- Custom Event

Trigger Name:- Hubspot Form Trigger

Event Name:- hubspot-form-success

Trigger Fires On:- All Custom Events

As per the below screenshot:-

Create a custom event trigger on a successful HubSpot form trigger

Now when hs-form-guid is pushed to the dataLayer, our trigger fires – now we just need to create an event tag that is linked to the Trigger.

Step 4 – Create a GA4 Event Tag

Tag Type:- Google Analytics GA4 Event

Tag Name:- GA4 | Hubspot Form Submit

Measurement ID:- Your Google Analytics G-Stream ID

Event Name:- hubspot_lead

Event Parameters:-

Name:- Page URL Value {{Page URL}}

Name:- Click Text Value {{Click Text}}

As per the below screenshot:-

Create a hubspot form event in Google Tag Manager that can be measured in google analytics and google ads

Now when our trigger fires – the event occurs. This can be measured in Google Analytics 4 (GA4) – once in GA4 we can then use this event to optimise our google ads as a successful conversion event!
