Ruler will send events to Google Analytics for various events in your Ruler Dashboard. You can then create goals to report on these events in your Google reports.
Before attempting to send any events to Google Analytics ensure you have bot filtering turned off, or at least one view where bot filtering is not enabled.
We recommend as a best practice creating a new specific Ruler Analytics view in your Analytics account and turning off bot filtering if you are hesitant about turning this off globally.
Bot filtering can be disabled in your Analytics view under Admin > View settings.
When creating a goal in Analytics, this will depend on the event/s you are sending from Ruler Analytics.
The steps to set this up are as follows:
Login to Google Analytics
Click on “Admin”
Click on “Goals” – “+New Goal”.
Click on Custom
- Give the Goal a relevant name such as “Revenue” if it for Revenue events, and choose type “Event” then Continue.
- During this part of setup we recommend the following structure, however please feel free to set this to what you like and ensure you let your Ruler account manager know who can configure this on our side.
Please use the following Cateogry name to correspond to the relevant event from Ruler Analytics.
|Event Type||Event Category||Event Action|
|New Phone Call||Ruler Phone Call||(Action|Offline)|
|New Form Completion||Ruler Form||(Action|Offline)|
|New Live Chat||Ruler Live Chat||(Action|Offline)|
|New Opportunity||Ruler Opportunity||(Action|Offline)|
|New Revenue||Ruler Revenue||(Action|Offline)|
- Save to complete.
