Event Data aggregation


(Derek) #1

Hey all!

First off just wanted to say Piwik is a great product and I have been enjoying implementing our system with it! So down to business…

I am working with event tracking and have my web application send custom events to the server. All is tracking correctly, however, I have been scouring the web and didn’t seem to find any mention about how to display event data in terms of the category, action, and name similar to how the data is displayed in the vistor log “> Category > Action > Name”?

I found that from Actions>Events you can pivot the table for Category & Name to be displayed; however, then you run into the limit of 9 and then all other Event Names aggregated to Others.

tl;dr: Trying to view all event names by the event category and haven’t found any good resource on this exact topic.

Would love to hear if anyone else has run into this issue as well.

Is this what you want to achieve? 3 (Three) Level Event Reports · Issue #7855 · matomo-org/piwik · GitHub
Unfortunately, it’s not possible yet.

That would be best case scenario, so I understand it’s still an issue.

With that not being an option, I used the built in feature on the Action > Events page to view my data as a pivot table with Event Category and Event Name; however, after 8 event names, the reset get thrown into an “Others” column.

edit So I did realize I’ll be able to see most of the data with just viewing Category > Name which is helpful, just trying to find a way to view more data at once. The expanded table is very tedious to view and compare between categories.

I am curious as to if it is possible to expand the number of rows in the pivot table secondary dimension in the config.ini.php?

You can always export the data (e.g. to tsv) and compare somewhere else.
