This feature requires the Marketing and Financials extensions to be activated in Boardeaser, and a Google account with access to Google Analytics is also required.
With the Marketing extension, data from Google Analytics can be visualized in graphs in Boardeaser. There are a large number of ready-made graphs, but it is also possible to use this data in your own graphs independently or together with, for example, accounting data.
Connect the integration
The first time, a Google account needs to be connected to Boardeaser. Keep in mind that all Analytics data that is available via the account will be shared with other users, so first set in Google Analytics which data should be available via the account.
How to use:
- Check that the Marketing extension is enabled in "Product Shop", otherwise enable it.
- Go to "Settings" > "Integrations".
- To the right of Google Analytics, click "Activate".
- A pop-up window appears where you enter the email and password of the google account to be used.
- All views from Analytics available through the account are now displayed. Click the “Activate” button for the view(s) whose data should be available in Boardeaser.
It may take an hour or so before Google completes the integration and sends the data to Boardeaser. Then the selected data is shared with your account in Boardeaser. Clicking “Disable” for a view stops new data from being shared, but the data that has already been sent is not removed from graphs or tables.
NOTE: If you deactivate the entire connection by clicking on "Deactivate" on the large button to the right of the text, all graphs are removed from reports and dashboards with this data.
Now a number of ready-made graphs are available to be used in reports or own dashboards. If you choose to add a graph, graphs with Analytics data will appear at the bottom of the list of available graphs.
Own graphs and tables
With the KPI Analytics add-on, you can use the data when creating your own graphs and tables. To select the data to insert into the custom graph, click on "Add data source" and then to the folder Default > Marketing > Analytics. There you select the account, property and view to add data from. Remember to use the same data period from Analytics as the interval of your own graph, i.e. monthly data from Analytics if the graph or table shows monthly data otherwise.
It is possible to use the data from analytics as any variable in a formula.
To get a graph with the sum of all advertising and advertising costs (the sum of all 59xx accounts) per session, enter this formula:
Save the graph or table when you're done and you can add it to reports or dashboards.
