Step 1

Log in and locate the existing Google Analytics site Tracking ID. Not yet step up Google Analytics? Then go ahead and create and set up a Google Analytics account  and make a note of the newly created Google Analytics Tracking ID.

Step 2

Create a common view that can be reused on all or most of the forms; this would typically be a header view, but can also be a hidden view.

By making use of a common view, it is only neccessary to add the Google Analytics tracking code to a single view, the result being that all pages making use of this view will then be automatically tracked.

Step 3

Add a data label to the common view (anywhere on the view)
