Implementing Google Analytics’ User ID feature with DNN Google Analytics Advanced

Update: DNN Google Analytics Advanced 03.01.00 offers a checkbox to easily switch the User ID feature on and off and no longer require the steps below.

One of the great benefits of Google Universal about Google Analytics Classic is the User ID feature (see here for more information). In a nutshell, this feature allows you to track your users across different devices (such as phone, tablet or desktop). Technically, you provide the user’s id to Google Analytics (after the user has logged in) so that Google Analytics is able to recognize the user even after he has switched the device. Since DNN does not offer support for Google Analytics Universal out-of-the-box, DNN Google Analytics Advanced is a great help in setting up this feature. Continue reading

Configure Google Analytics in DNN 9 with DNN Google Analytics Advanced for free

Update: As of version 03.00.00, DNN Google Analytics Advanced smoothly integrates into DNN 9’s Persona Bar and lets you configure the Google Analytics settings even more user friendly (see here).

DNN 9 was released some days ago. This major release introduces a new admin experience (the “Persona Bar”). Almost all admin modules from DNN 8 have been rewritten as Persona Bar extensions to fit into this new concept. But some admin and host modules were not part of the migration and it seems that they are no longer on the roadmap for future development. As you can see in this detailed list, the Google Analytics Module is one of those discontinued modules. In a fresh DNN 9 installation, this module is still installed, but you can’t use it – there us no page for configuring the module. So with┬áDNN 9, there is no means for entering your Google Analytics Tracking ID.
