Piwik PRO Analytics Suite 15: Tracker debugger, new UI in Tag Manager and more

We’re glad to share the news that Piwik PRO is introducing version 15 of its Analytics Suite. We’ve only recently released Piwik PRO Analytics Suite 14 and now we’re adding more new and upgraded features and capabilities. 

Improvements include, among other things, the tracker debugger, public API and UI in the Tag Manager and an audit log in the platform. On October 6th, Piwik PRO Analytics Suite 15 will be ready to be put into action by our customers.

Let’s see all the details of this release!

Analytics enhanced with the tracker debugger

The Piwik PRO Analytics Suite 15 introduces a tracker debugger in Analytics. It shows you real-time events that help you verify your tracking setup and immediately find any issues with data or tracking. You’ll be sure that you’re getting accurate and complete data.

Tag Manager gets an API and a new UI

We’ve added a public API to our Tag Manager that lets you easily access data and manage and automate all your tags, variables and triggers from other applications.

Moreover, we’ve enhanced the user interface throughout Tag Manager. The fresh UI improves performance and is now faster and more user-friendly.

Improved custom tag editor in Piwik PRO Tag Manger

We’ve streamlined the UI of both the changelog and custom tag editor in Tag Manager. It’s now easier to make changes to tags, variables and triggers and also later see what changes were made and revert to previous versions if necessary.

There’s also a new simple drag-and-drop mechanism to manage tag priority.

Audit log for improved security and compliance

We’ve designed the audit log to help keep your account secure and compliant with regulations such as HIPAA in the US. In it you’ll see all changes to platform settings, such as:

  • Adding a website or user
  • Granting access to users
  • Changes to permissions
  • Changes in global or individual website settings

The audit log allows you to spot any suspicious activity and find out how changes to the platform affect performance.

Finally, it’s also possible to search and filter records and export the log to a CSV file.

Other refinements in the Analytics Suite

Version 15 also introduces some smaller but handy changes. First, in Audience Manager, when exporting attributes to a CSV file, you’ll be able to use a checkbox to quickly select all attributes. Second, we’ve made it possible in Analytics to copy segments between websites so you’ll save time when creating the same segments on many sites.
