Compare Cloud, Private Cloud and On-premises


April 12, 2021

15.3.0

Analytics

New

  • You can now see consent statistics under Analytics > Reports > Consent. All consent data can now be exported to CSV, XML, JSON or JSON (KV) files or accessed via API. You can also use consent dimensions and metrics in custom reports. (Note: We’re moving consent statistics out of Consent Manager. Starting with version 15.3.0, data collected before the change will be under Consent Manager > Insights and data collected after the change under Analytics > Reports > Consent. From version 15.4.0 on, all data will be only under Analytics.)
  • Piwik PRO site inspector, a new extension for Chrome that shows a heatmap, clickmap and scrollmap for your site.
Fixed

  • We fixed the issue with missing Google Ads data in scheduled exports. Now your export will wait until data from Google Ads arrive.
  • The Show all paths option in the user flow report is loading data correctly.
Deprecated

  • We’re changing the way the data exporter delivers your data. So far, you have received data for each site and scope in separate files or tables. This solution will work until June 7, 2021, for accounts that already have their data export set up. After the change, you’ll receive two files or tables: one for events and one for sessions. These files or tables will have data for all your sites and apps.

Tag Manager

Improved

  • The history change (SPA) trigger has a new option: Wait 1 second before firing the tag. Waiting helps to match page URLs with page titles when you use this trigger for single-page applications.

Consent Manager

Improved

  • The form for collecting data subject requests now works correctly on sites that use the content security policy (CSP).
Deprecated

  • We’re moving consent statistics to reports in Analytics. Starting with version 15.3.0, data collected before the change will be under Consent Manager > Insights and data collected after the change under Analytics > Reports > Consent. From version 15.4.0 on, all data will be only under Analytics.
Removed

  • We removed Consent form – failure note from consent templates. It’s no longer needed because now visitor choices are saved in the ppms_privacy_ {app_id} cookie and can’t be lost during connection problems.

Tracker

New

  • Added the enableCookies method to the tracker. This lets you collect data with or without using cookies. With this method, cookies are turned on without reloading the page. This can be useful if you’re using Consent Manager in single-page applications.
Improved

  • We changed the way the tracker counts the session time when Count session time precisely is turned on. Now ping requests are sent automatically at increasing intervals.

Administration

New

  • Now it’s easier to set up your data collection with respect to visitor privacy. When you ask visitors for consent using our Consent Manager, you can now choose to collect non-sensitive data for visitors who don’t consent: (1) collect data using a 30-minute cookie, (2) collect data without using cookies or (3) don’t collect data. When you don’t ask visitors for consent, you can turn on or off two options: device fingerprinting and cookies. When you turn both off, you’ll collect only non-sensitive data from all visitors. You can set it up by going to Administration > Websites & apps > Settings.
  • You can now use our platform also in Dutch and French.
