That’s all you need to do to start sending GetSiteControl events to your Google Analytics dashboard.

Step 2

To view events sent by GetSiteControl open your Google Analytics dashboard, find the Behavior section and open Events. You will see that a new event category has been added and this new category is called ‘getsitecontrol’. That’s where you can see all the events sent by GetSiteControl.

Send custom events to Google Analytics

There are four possible Event Actions:

  • show (the widget is shown to a visitor)
  • close (a visitor clicks on the ‘close’ button)
  • action (a visitor clicks on the widget button)
  • logo (a visitor clicks on the ‘Powered by GetSiteControl’ logo)

The Event Label is the name of the widget as specified in your GetSiteControl dashboard.
