Using Query String Parameters with Oracle Eloqua

November 13, 2014 Uberflip Customer Success

If a user was linked to an Item inside a Hub through a URL that included a query string parameter, this data will also be passed over to the corresponding field in Oracle Eloqua when a Form CTA is submitted during that session.

This is a very useful feature for tracking users who came from a specific campaign, social media platform, geography, etc. 

For example, take this URL with an added query string: http://hub.uberflip.com/h/?location=canada. In this case, the text ?location=canada has been manually added to the back of the Hub Item or Hub URL that is being publicly shared with users through an email or social media campaign, for instance.  If this has been set up, upon submitting a Form CTA in the same session they came to the Hub from this URL, we will also try to update the field “location” in Eloqua with the result “canada”.  

Using query strings with your Hub content is quick and easy, but does require a bit of set-up.
