New Applications

Personalization

Personalization is a new application that allows users to show targeted pop-ups to visitors based on what page they’re viewing, where they come from, how they’re interacting with your campaigns, and more. Piwik PRO users are now able to take behavior personalization to a whole new level with Personalization.

Personalization allows you to customize the text and visuals on your pop-ups based on any external variable that you choose. You can create a pop-up and choose firing triggers like you do in Piwik PRO Tag Manager.

Pop-ups (views and clicks) can be easily tracked with Piwik PRO Analytics. All you do is activate one option in a Piwik PRO tag template and publish it. Users can use Visual creator to customize text, buttons, and images (drag and drop).

Audience Manager

Audience Manager helps you collect and combine data from different data sources, create audiences and use them in other components of the Piwik PRO Marketing Suite, as well as export them to third-party advertising and marketing platforms.

Audience Manager is a tool which stores a visitor’s data in one profile (single customer view). It collects data from various sources:

  • Analytics visitor data (browser, OS, device, location, referer) – If you have Audience Manager enabled, by default it receives Analytics data in real-time.
  • Forms – data saved from any form filled in and submitted by the visitor
  • CSV files – data imported from external sources (Mapping CSV columns to profiles attributes)

Our newest application also features Audience Builder – the user can create audiences based on profile data captured from different sources (Analytics, forms) and export them to a CSV file.

Pop-ups (views and clicks) can be easily tracked with Piwik PRO Analytics. Just turn on one option in the Piwik PRO tag template and publish it. Users can use Visual creator to customize text, buttons, and images (drag and drop).

Tag Manager

NewMajor

Changelog

Whenever tags, triggers, and variables are added to a container (website), all of the changes or new items need to be published in order for them to run on that site. Piwik PRO Tag Manager has a ‘Changelog’ feature, which enables users to save different combinations of tag, trigger, and variable setups (Snapshots) for a given container (website).

Each change can be tracked and displayed to the user:

  • What has been changed?
  • Who made the change?

Additional information available for each snapshot:

  • Creator;
  • Last publish date;
  • Publisher.

Each snapshot can be published multiple times, which means that the user can publish an old snapshot to make it live. In addition, the user can revert to any snapshot of their choosing – a draft based on that snapshot is then created. Read more…
