Full UTM tags support#131

Currently Plausible supports ref, source and utm_source parameters but would be great with the full UTM tags support too (utm_medium, utm_campaign).

I would definitely be interested in that as well. In fact that’s the only thing missing for me to fully switch to Plausible.

Thanks for letting us know Benjamin!

As a temporary “hack”, wouldn’t it work to create multiple ref tags to differentiate between the different campaigns and use that instead of the full UTM tags?

For instance:

domain.com/?ref=instagram-ads-videostory
domain.com/?ref=facebook-ads-videostory
domain.com/?ref=facebook-page-welcomepost

This kind of replaces the source, medium and campaign. What do you think?

Few more reasons:

  • Many services support UTMs (with some sort of “automatic taggings” feature), notably emailing and marketing automation tools.
  • Some people have taken the habbit to add UTMs on their outbound links. Would make adoption easier.
  • You can’t always control how your partners (or team mates, especially in large and heterogeneous company) will make up their links, but, again, it is very very likely that they would set UTMs “by default”.
