Query regarding Custom Channel creation and pixel image tracking


(Jitendra) #1

Hi,

While going through Piwik, we tried to find out process for managing the custom channels and user tracking by pixel image and we came across the following question:

  1. I didn’t get any option for creating a new custom channel i.e. a channel other than search, refereral etc? Does Piwik provides custom channel management as being provided in Google Analytic.

  2. Is there any option to export user data reports with some selected metrics not all metrics

  3. We are not able to get data on piwik dashboard captured from tracking pixel image. I am using following url for tracking pixel image like: “http://jitendra.piwikpro.com/piwik.php?idsite=3&rec=1”. I am not getting where is the problem.

Please suggest some way out of these problems.

Hi,

  1. Piwik allows tracking additional referrers as campaigns: Tracking Campaigns – Analytics Piwik - Analytics Platform - Matomo
    2)There are a lot of API methods allowing you to export almost all of the reports: Reporting API Reference: API Reference - Matomo Analytics (formerly Piwik Analytics) - Developer Docs - v3
    Of course you can also export reports from the UI, clicking a small triangle at the bottom of report shows additinal options along with export buttons.
  2. It seems that this tracker is working correctly. What seems to be the problem with it?
    Cheers,

Hi Michal,

Thanks for the quick response !!

Actually i have tried to configure image tracking for my project but unfortunately cant see any action reported on my piwik dashboard.

Please find below the steps performed :

  1. I have added below code snippet on Website Page Source:

  1. I have this website configured on my piwik dashboard

  2. Now added “http://jitendra.piwikpro.com/piwik.php?idsite=3&rec=1” as 1*1 image in my gmail signature.

4.Sending mail with this signature configured.

Result Expected : Whenever user open the mail , i should get this as Email traffic on my Piwik dashboard.
Actual : No Actions can be seen.

I think i am missing some step here or the configuration is not correct.

Could you please share your inputs for making this work.

Thanks in advance…!! :slight_smile:

Hi,
It seems that Gmail is removing pixel tracker from the signature, Only a normal pixel remains.
However, embedding pixel in the mail content works fine.
