I’m tryng to find a way that I can identify more of my customer’s user ids by passing through their User_ID from an email URL parameter or via Image tracking. Not many people log into my site so i think that identifying users from an email click might be a good way of solving for this.
As such I was hoping that by creating a pixel in the email with the following URL would identify a user;
<img src=https://mywebsite/piwik.php?idsite=1&rec=1&uid=CUST0001 style=“border:0” alt="" />
However when I execute this, I cant find any record of CUST001 on the matomo db.
Am I going about this the wrong way? If anyone has a way of using the URL or tracking API to pass through a User ID, i’d love to know about it!
