I am a newbie and yet to install piwik.
I am interested in doing a lifetime value analysis for a website. For this I want to be able to track “user1” from his first visit, till date. Basically, a unique ID to a new visitor which is again mapped to, when the visitor returns back after a day or two. Currently, as per my understanding :
(please correct if I am wrong)
In the Tracking API, one of the HTTP GET parameters is “_id” - unique user ID.
So my question is if it is possible to persist this value for the same user across multiple sessions over a period of time (say more than a month). So that, ultimately, I can track users and fetch data about all their sessions from the database ?
I am not interested in reports and I would manually pull data from the database and perform analysis.
