Setting Up Google Analytics Tracking on a Training App

If you have selected the option to track data on your app using Google Analytics, and assuming you have already created or have access to a Google Analytics account, the first step is to create a Google Analytics tracking ID. Once you have it, you’ll paste it into the designated field in the Preview / Export view of your app in CourseBuilder. Then tracking will be enabled for your app once it has been published to a Domo instance.

Before you exit out of Google Analytics, you’ll also need to add some recommended custom dimensions to this new property. Here’s how to do that:

  1. In the Property menu, select the Custom Definitions tab, then select Custom Dimensions.

  2. Click the +New Custom Dimension button.

  3. In the dimension name field, type “Instance,” then click Create.

  4. In the next screen, select Done.

  5. Repeat the previous three steps for the following additional custom dimensions: User ID, App Name. The final list of custom dimensions should be as follows:

  • Instance

  • User ID

  • App Name

Your app should now be set up to track multiple metrics and dimensions. Now, once you publish this app to any Domo instance, it will start tracking user data.
