As a Superadmin, understanding how your users interact with the platform can be very useful to improve their experience and, in turn, their learning results. Take advantage of the integration between Docebo and Google Analytics to collect data on the platform usage, and take proper action. With the data collected in Google Analytics, you may discover that most of your users skip certain training material in a course, and you can investigate why it happens (maybe it is outdated, or not properly uploaded).
The integration between Docebo and Google Analytics is not available for Internet Explorer 11 on Windows 7, and for Internet Explorer 10 (and below) on all operating systems. Also, note that UTM tags are not currently supported. Please note that if you have activated the Docebo E-Commerce app in your platform, the integration with Google Analytics will not collect data of the transactions generated by the app in your platform.
Use Case Scenarios
A useful scenario for this integration is keeping track of how your users register into the platform, so you can understand where your users are coming from. For example, you can set up a campaign to promote your content on social networks, prompting users to self-register on your platform upon landing. Thanks to the Docebo integration with Google Analytics, you can track if the users navigated to the platform from social networks and understand if your ads are really helping drive users to your content.
Activating the Google Analytics App in Docebo
In order to activate the integration between Docebo and Google Analytics, log into your platform as the Superadmin, then select the Admin Menu from the gear icon in the top right corner of your homepage. Then, press the Add New Apps button. Once on the Apps & Features page, select the Third Party Integrations tab from the tab menu on the left side of the page. Then, find the Google Analytics app in the list, and press the Try It For Free button in the app’s row. In the pop-up box, read the available information about the integration.
