Tracking Analytics

Learn how to begin tracking analytic events

Track

Once you're set up, tracking events is easy as 🥧:

Plaudy.track("purchase", {
"amount": 413.25,
"upsell": 63.25,
"referrer": "landing page",
"items": [
"dehydrated h20",
"non-gmo water",
"filtered dirt"
],
"user_id": `USER_ID` // if you didn't pass this in when using .identify()
"object_id": `OBJECT_ID` // if you didn't pass this in when using .identify()
// anything else
});

The first argument is the event_type, which you can call whatever you'd like. The second argument is any data you want to pass in (up to 1,000 key-value pairs).

count is a preserved keyword and will determine how much the counter for this event type and user increments because of this event. In most cases, you will not need to pass this in.

Examples

1. Tracking A Page View

Here's a simple example of everything together in a file we'll call index.js. We'll be tracking a single page view:

index.js
import Plaudy from 'plaudy';
Plaudy.init(`YOUR_API_KEY`);
Plaudy.identify(`USER_ID`, `OBJECT_ID`);
Plaudy.track("page view", {
"title": window.location.hostname,
"url": "https://docs.plaudy.com"
});

That's it! You successfully tracked your first page view for this user! But there's so much more you can do! Keep it going! 🎉
