Got WordPress? Please use our WordPress Plugin. If not, this page will give you instructions for a generic PHP installation.

<?php // Paste your secret key into the next line between the single quotes $analyticsconnectioSecretKey = 'YOUR_SECRET_KEY_GOES_HERE'; ?>
Save your changes, and close the file.
Once that's done, upload the
analyticsconnect-io folder with all of its contents to the root of your website via FTP.

thank-you.php and that this file is in the root of your website. You'll need to add the following code to that page to fire our software.

You'll also be able to see events in real time from inside your Google Analytics account. Go to the "Reporting" tab. Click on "Real-Time" inside the left sidebar, and then on "Events". Then select "Events (Last 30 min)" for "Viewing". Our software writes data under the "Event Category" of "AnalyticsConnect.io". To see event history, including errors, go to the "Reporting" tab. Click on "Behavior", then "Events", and then on "Overview". From there you can click on "AnalyticsConnect.io" to see details.
