Replace the default ExpressionEngine® dashboard with a beautiful display of your website’s Google Analytics traffic.
Dashboard Analytics replaces the default ExpressionEngine® 3.0+ dashboard with a beautiful display of your website’s Google Analytics traffic. Once authorized to connect to your Google Analytics account, the dashboard displays real-time traffic (which live-updates every 60 seconds) followed by a comprehensive overview of traffic from today, yesterday, and the past 30 days.
The real-time traffic display includes: the number of active users; a breakdown of device usage for the current active users (desktop, tablet, and mobile); the top five pages currently being viewed; the top five current traffic sources; and the top five current countries.
The overviews for today’s traffic, yesterday’s traffic, and last month’s traffic all include: total sessions, total pageviews; the average number of pages viewed per session; the average visit length; and the average bounce rate.
The last 30 days’ overview also includes: a line chart which follows daily sessions and pageviews for the period; a pie chart showing new versus returning visitors; a pie chart showing the breakdown of devices (desktop, tablet, and mobile); the top five pages for the period; the top five traffic sources for the period; and the top five countries for the period.
NOTE: Dashboard Analytics connects using version 3 of the Google Analytics Data API, which is not compatible with Google Analytics 4. A GA4-compatible API has yet to be released, so there are currently no plans to support GA4 in the near-future.
