Cookie trackingHubSpot recognizes your contacts based on the cookie that is dropped in their browsers. When a user first visits your website and fills out a form, that cookie becomes associated with that contact and any subsequent submissions with that cookie will be associated with the same contact and information will be overwritten.
In some situations, you may have multiple contacts filling out the same form on the same browser (at a trade show, for example). In these cases, you can disable cookie tracking so that each submission creates a new contact. If the email address entered already exists, the contact record will be updated with the new information. It's important to note that contacts submitted via a form with cookie tracking disabled will not have reporting data such as original source, page view history, or other tracking data recorded.
By default, cookie tracking will be enabled. Click to toggle the Cookie tracking switch off to disable cookie tracking (the switch will appear gray when disabled). You can learn more about this setting here.
Pre-populate fields with known values
If a visitor has come to your site and filled out a form before and HubSpot was able to capture their cookie information, this option will allow you to pre-populate information into your form fields the next time they visit and go to fill out a form.
This option is enabled by default. With this option enabled, any time your visitors come to your site, known information will already be filled in for them, saving them time in filling out subsequent forms.
With this option disabled, this information will not be pre-populated. This can be helpful when you're also disabling cookies because you expect multiple users will fill out the same form (such as at a conference or a trade show). This prevents the previous user's submission information from being pre-populated.
To disable this option, click to toggle the Pre-populate fields with known values switch off (the switch will appear gray when disabled).
Save or publish your changes
Once you've finished setting up your form's options, click Save to save your changes as a draft or Publish to take the changes to your form live.
