How to set up Google Analytics

How to create a property in Google Analytics

Before setting up Google Analytics, you need to create a property. Your property is a site or an application about which the statistics are being collected.

If you have several sites, you need to create a separate property for each of them. One account in Google Analytics can gather data about fifty properties.

Go to the Admin tab in  Google Anatytics and click Create Property.

Fill out the Property name and click the Show advanced options button.

 Switch on the Create a Universal Analytics property toggle. Then fill out the Website URL field.

Select the Create a Universal Analytics property only checkbox.

How to set up Google Analytics

Once the property has been created, you can set up Google Analytics for your site. The service will start operating, as soon as you have entered the counter ID.

You can connect Google Analytics in SettingsAnalytics.

The counter ID is found in your Google Analytics account. Go to Admin.

Then go to Property Settings.

Copy the Tracking Id.

Paste the copied ID into the Counter ID field in Google Analytics integration window.

Google Analytics starts operating right away.

Creating a goal in Google Analytics

The Main goal in the Goals tab of all the forms and buttons on Flexbe is set up by default. It’s an ID which triggers if the desired action (clicking a button, submitting a from, etc.) is performed from this form or button.

If you want a goal from the Main goal field to be reported in Google Analytics, then create it according to the instructions below.

1. Sign in to Google Analytics and go to the Admin tab in the bottom left corner.

2. Then go to Goals in the right column.

3. To create a goal, click the red +New Goal button.

4. Select Custom in Goal setup.

5. Enter the goal name and select its type.

6. Copy the ID in the Main goal field of your form or button on Flexbe and paste it to the Category field, then click Save.

The IDs in the Main goal field are the same for all the forms and buttons. To know which form or button the goal has triggered from, you can specify a unique identifier in the Goal ID field of the selected form or button. Specify the same identifier in your Google Analytics account as in the instructions above.
