Add To Google Analytics

Add To Google Analytics

The Add to Google Analytics workflow action is utilized to trigger an event in Google Analytics. This event trigger requires users to input specific parameters within the workflow. This technique is ideal for when users want to track events beyond the user’s page view or visit, such as form submissions, user opt-ins, or support calls.

Edit Action

      1. Open Google Analytics and Click the ‘Admin’ tab

To categorize traffic into a specific source, we have a predefined set of rules in place. These rules involve checking the full page URL and the available referring domain against them. Further information regarding the rules and sources used for tracking can be found below.

FAQ

  1. How to find the Category, action, and label in GA4? A Universal Analytics event has a Category, Action, and Label and is its own hit type. In Google Analytics 4 properties, every “hit” is an event; there is no distinction between hit types. For example, when someone views one of your website pages, a page_view event is triggered. Google Analytics 4 events have no notion of Category, Action, and Label and, unlike Universal Analytics reports, Google Analytics 4 reports do not display Category, Action, and Label. Therefore, it’s better to rethink your data collection in terms of the Google Analytics 4 model rather than port your existing event structure to Google Analytics 4.\

  2. How to find in GA4 if the setup is working or not? Please go to Google Analytics, and visit the GA4 property. In the navigation, please go to Reporting > Acquisition Reports. If the setup is done correctly, it will show up here and we would say add filters of source and medium (marked in red).
