How can I show number of unique visitors sending an event action?

Say I have an event action “foo”, that shows up as having 10 hits one day, but if I open the segmented visitor log I count 6 unique users. Is there a simple way to get that number “6” out without opening the visitor log and counting manually?

Hello, this sounds like a great idea for a new feature. Could you create your feature request in our tracker: Issues · piwik/piwik · GitHub

It is now possible to do this with Custom Reports: Custom Reports - Analytics Platform - Piwik
and https://plugins.piwik.org/CustomReports

An alternative workaround you can do to get unique events metric in Matomo is:

  • Create a segment, matching visits that triggered a specific event: https://matomo.org/docs/segmentation/
  • Apply the segment.
  • Open the Visitors > Overview report.
  • Get the “Unique Visitors” metric. This is equivalent to the “Unique Events”.

Downside is that you need to create a segment for each event you want the “unique events” metrics for.
