This plugin adds user’s analytics in emails sent from Contact Form 7, Ninja Forms, WPForms, and WooCommerce.
Stop guessing where your leads and conversions are coming from and start knowing instantly in your email notifications. No longer do you have to stumble through your analytics software (e.g. Google Analytics) to try and guess where a conversion came from. This plugin will save you time, let you focus on your customers, and help guide your marketing towards generating new conversions.
This plugin is designed to be complementary to your existing analytics software (e.g. Google Analytics).
Optional Analytic Data Shown:
- Referral Source
- Lead Source (e.g. Google Ads, Microsoft Ads, Facebook, utm_source, etc)
- User Journey (showing all pages the user has visited on your website)
- User’s Time on Site
- User’s Device (mobile, desktop, laptop/tablet)
- User’s IP Address
- User-Agent Information (browser and operating system information)

The plugin uses a first-party local cookie that is automatically deleted at the end of the user’s session.
No. This plugin does not communicate with any other websites or servers.
Is this GDPR and/or CCPA compliant?
It can be. It depends on your privacy statement. After installed you can refer to the plugin’s Settings > Privacy Notes for more information.
Can this be integrated with plugins not listed above?
Yes, through PHP. Call the function
ica_report();for plain text output, or
ica_report('html');for HTML output. Other plugin integrations are planned for the future.
Is this compatible with caching plugins?
Yes, it is fully compatible will all caching plugins.
Is this a stand-alone analytics solution?
This plugin is a stand-alone solution, but it is recommended to have other analytics software installed as well such as Google Analytics or an equivalent.
Does this plugin slow down the website?
We did a Google PageSpeed Insights test on a website where this plugin was installed and got a mobile score of 99 (desktop score of 100). All of the suggested improvements were unrelated to this plugin.
If this plugin has an error for any reason will I still receive my emails?
Yes, you will still get your email. When this plugin adds to the content of the email it uses the Exception PHP method. If for any unforeseen reason there is an error in the code, it will be bypassed.
