Feature Request: Customizable source/Referral tracking, "How did you hear about us", that is a drop down list as part of a an inquiry. Knowing how a person was directed to your site and fills out an inquiry for a quote is VERY valuable information for a rental owner. It helps track advertising dollars. When I have asked about this in the past, I was told Google Analytics should be used for this. Raise your hand if you think Google Analytics is easy. As all of you know Google Analytics is not user friendly, its made for programers, not vacation rental owners. How easy would it be to just put a drop down list of customizable "How did you hear about us" field on the inquiry page. This is a very common field on almost all websites, except Ownerez? Please consider this as an added feature, even if its a paid one. There would also need to be some sort of reporting feature to aggregate the information. Thanks, Ownerez' biggest fan!!!

That works for "checkouts" but not for inquiry/quotes. I like that though, at least for the ones that book, you would get the information. Would prefer that to be on the inquiry page though. Thanks for the tip!

Have you figured out a solution to this yet?

I have not. Hoping those badass programers at OR hop on this sooner rather than later.

I could potentially help you with this as I am a programmer. Does this need to be done by ownerrez for you do find where your traffic is coming from?
