Hi all,

 

Anyone know if you can use Google Analytics with K2?

This old article vaguely mentions it: https://community.k2.com/t5/K2-Blackpearl-Forum-Posts/Google-Analytics-on-K2-based-web-site/td-p/90310

 

1) If editing the forms.aspx to cover all forms, what does the actually code format look like you add before the </body> tag?

 

2) If doing it on a form by form basis, what is the structure of the Data Label and what would the Google script look like?

 

I have a keen eye for stats and K2 usage, so looking at ways to achieve this with minimum fuss?

There is another way i could do this using K2. but i would prefer integrating with Google Analytics and let it do all the work

 

Any help/advise appreciated

Hello,


 


I believe Google Analytics has a REST API and if so, K2 should be able to integrate with it via the REST Service Broker.

Hi,

 

We weren't allowed to use Google Analytics for this due to data protection, so i created a localised solution instead using K2 to log visits and then using SRSS to report on it.

 

Thanks
