Google Analytics is implemented on Readymag by default, so you simply need to specify a unique tracking ID in your project or profile settings. The Tracking ID is a string with the format UA-000000-2, used by Google Analytics to send all collected data to your account and property.
Read how to Find your tracking ID in Google Help.
Option 1: Connect your profile
Open your profile’s settings and paste your Tracking ID into the Google Analytics field. Click Save Changes. Data collected across all your projects will be sent to one property in your Google Analytics account.
Option 2: Connect a project
Open your Project Settings and paste the Tracking ID on Domain tab. Please note, the Google Analytics feature is only available if you are using a custom domain name for the project.
Setting up GA account to get Tracking ID
Open your Google Analytics account. Create a new property, specify the required settings, and click Get Tracking ID. Select either https or http in Website URL drop-down, depending whether or not your project has SSL turned on. Copy Tracking ID (which looks like UA-XXXXXXXX-Y), and return to Readymag settings.
We track all events in projects and send them to the configured Google Analytics property. All events are sent under the category ‘Project Actions’ and can be found in reports Behavior → Events. Check the Overview report to see if you have this category.
The full list of events can be found here.
Hint: You can always check whether events are sent to your property and check the descriptive data. Use the official Google Analytics Debugger for Google Chrome browser. The details will be displayed in the Developer Console.
Setting up goals
To set up a goal, use the official Google Analytics instructions.
Select the following settings:
- Category: “Project Actions”
- Action: the name of an event (e.g., “Form Submit Click”).
Other analytics tools
At the moment, only Google Analytics is officially supported. However, with the help of a fellow developer and Readymag API, you can send data to other web analytics services.
