Up tracking is a big part of Google Analytics, but if you want it to appear in your app’s analytics dashboard, you’ll need to add tracking to your app.
Google Analytics lets developers add tracking when they add a new feature to their app, but the company doesn’t allow apps to remove the tracking from a given app.
So if you’re adding tracking to a new app, you may need to ask your app developers for permission.
To find out if tracking is allowed on your app, open the app’s settings.
Scroll down and find “In app analytics” under the “About” tab.
If you don’t see it, tap the little red “+” next to the box labeled “tracking” and make sure it’s checked.
Then tap “Add new feature.”
The next screen will tell you what the feature does.
Under “More details” on the next screen, you can select “Add more information about tracking,” then “Permissions.”
The app developer’s permission to add this tracking information will appear next to “More detail.”
When you add tracking, you have to include an XML file with the following code: If you’re unsure of what tracking means, you should read our article How to add more details about tracking to an app.
When you add the tracking code, the code will appear in the app Analytics dashboard, along with the tracking_id attribute, which is the identifier for the tracking data.
If tracking is enabled, the data is displayed in your dashboard, and you can also filter the data to only show information about your users, such as their activity or location.
If the tracking isn’t enabled, you will see a blank space at the top of the app analytics dashboard.
If tracking isn, in fact, enabled, Google Analytics will show a “0” if the app doesn’t have tracking.
In that case, the app is disabled, and the app will not show up in the analytics dashboard of Google.
If it’s enabled, however, Google can display the app in the dashboard by displaying an alert that appears in the Analytics app that says “Your app is being tracked.”
When you tap the alert, Google will show you a list of your apps that have been tracked.
The best part about tracking is that you don’s and don’t have to be in your Google Analytics account to get it.
If your app has a different tracking method, it will show up with a “false positive” badge in the “tracking methods” section of your app analytics settings.
Google doesn’t require that you give permission to track, but you should always be sure to check with your app developer to ensure tracking is working.
