Google Analytics Tracking on Actions

If you use Google Analytics you can apply your account’s tracking code to ActionSprout to receive analytics on your actions.

Please note: This feature is only available on the GOLD plan

To get started log into your Google Analytics account and navigate to the Admin tab at the top of your screen:

Copy that ID and log into your ActionSprout account. 

Once inside you’ll want to navigate to your General Settings menu. From the accounts page click on the gear icon on the account you wish to add Google Analytics to:

Once in general settings scroll to about the middle and paste your tracking ID into the provided box. Once done hit Update Settings at the bottom:

This will pull analytics from all your future actions into your Google Analytics account.

If you wish to start collecting analytics on an existing action you’ll need to apply the tracking code to that action manually. To do so find the action from your list under the Actions tab and click the edit button:

Next open the Integrations tab and paste your tracking ID into the provided box below. Again remember to save at the bottom of the screen.

Now all future analytics from this action will begin to populate inside of your Google Analytics account. Repeat this process for any other existing actions you’d like future data on.

Do note: Applying this ID WILL NOT back fill past data only FUTURE DATA.
