We use some profiles - some of which are embedded on external sites. It would be helpful if the Contact Source could be updated to reflect the source of the contact being the profile.

I know this can be done using Drupal and WebForm - but I am specifically interested in Profiles.

This has been asked before - but its been a few years - so hopefully we will get some fresh answers. :)

One option is very similar to this question/answer.

Add contacts created by the profile to a group and use CiviRules to populate the source field when the contact is added to the group - it's not "clean" and honestly a PR/extension to allow profiles to set any field using tokens (including a token for "profile name".) would probably be a better long-term solution.

Alternatively a PR to CiviRules to directly support profiles.
