SETUP > How to set up custom Google Analytics tracking to collect engagement data

You can set your own Google Analytics ID within Tallyfy's settings. 

This will enable you to track engagement data across most objects on your own, custom Google Analytics instance!

The first thing you need to do is create these 5 items - note the custom dimension name, index and scope - exactly (including the correct case) in your Google Analytics instance.

Next you will need to get the Tracker ID from your Google Analytics account. 

It comes in a format like this - "UA-#####-#"

Click "Settings" in the top menu

Click "Integrations"

Scroll down to the "Analytics and BI" section and enter your tracker ID in the box and click SAVE.

That is all! Events and views will now begin saving into your own Google Analytics instance. 

To pull in the data in reports, you could use custom reports and dashboards:

Tracking specific users and sessions

Tallyfy also has a Mixpanel integration (separate to this) - that provides a no-config way to track specific user/session activity.

You don't have to configure this next part - as it needs various custom steps to make it work, but doing so gives you user-level data for views of that nature.

1. On your Google Analytics dashboard open the Admin tab on the left pane

2. Open User ID on Tracking Info on Property section
3. Follow all instructions (1 to 3) and then Create
