Three Newbie Questions

Hi All,

I’ve got a couple of quick questions (as a newb to Piwik) which I’m hoping you could help on?

  1. If I tag website events using Google Tag Manager, will they be picked up by Piwik?

  2. Every so often, I’m going to need to download the data tables from the mySQL database to do some offline analysis on the data. Is there a specific web hosting service I should consider using?

  3. What is the best way to extract all the data (as flat files) from the mySQL database tables?

I use Piwik with Google Tag Manager and it works just fine by adding it as a custom html tag.

For pulling data into analysis tools you might consider the Piwik Reporting API´s Reporting API Reference: API Reference - Piwik Analytics - Developer Docs - v3
