Metadata

With your submissions, you not only find the data that users have entered into the form field, but also additional information, such as the browser language they have configured or the form submission date. This additional information, known as ‘metadata’, is useful for form analysis and is collected as standard by Formcentric.

The following metadata items are listed:
