Update your Google Analytics Screen/Page names

Google_analytics_icon.png

Starting from March 7, 2017, your Shopgate app and mobile website have been using a new set of Google Analytics screen names (on the app) and page names (on the mobile website).

 

Why the changes?

The changes employ unified and more accurate page names, making it easier to understand how your users interact within your mobile shop.

 

 

How does it affect me?

You will see the new names displayed within the BEHAVIOR section in Google Analytics and Google Analytics Universal. You do not need to do anything here.

However, if you use advanced configurations such as Goals, Funnels, Content Grouping, etc., it is necessary to update the screen/page names in these configurations before the end of March 7th to avoid loss of tracking data. Here's an example of the screen/page names that need to be updated:

For more information on Google Analytics, please read our documentation.

 

 

How to transition smoothly

To ensure a smooth transition, please update your screen/page names by following this example below:

In this example, the screen/page name webapp/cart_show is currently used. Simply update it by adding a | without a space followed by the corresponding new name cart_show. Make sure to also switch the option "Begins with" to "Regular expression". The result for a goal should look like this:

Frequently Asked Questions

What happens if I update the names AFTER March 7th?

You are likely to have lost some advanced tracking data (such as Goals, Funnels, Content Grouping, etc.) from March 8 until the day the screen/page names are updated.

If you decide to update AFTER March 7th, simply change the old screen/page names to the new ones listed in this table.
