Thanks for doing this - tracking Net Profit is a no-brainer on an E-Commerce site - so this is a welcome upgrade!
Wondering if the plugin allows for enhanced click tracking?
When you enable enhanced visitor tracking in Google Analytics it gives you a Script that needs:
A unique PAGE_ID parameter that needs to be replaced. It is a unique alphanumeric text value for every web page. It needs to be consistent for each page.
This is something we could look to add to our plugin.
Could you point us towards some documentation for Google's 'enhanced visitor tracking' that you mentioned, as we cannot find anything specific?
Having looked at the documentation, we could easily add the user_id field into our plugin. Our suggestion is that we add the user_id field only for registered users, as we don't feel using the anonymous user id will give you any benefit over the standard Google session id.
How does that sound, would that work for your needs?
Honestly, we care more about non-registered users than registered users. The registered users have already bought. We need click tracking info on non-buyers.
Forgive me if I'm wrong - but you can't use segments while analyzing Users Flow or Behavior flow - you can only view All Users. User-based segments are disabled for flow reports.
Yes, sorry, you are correct. I forgot you can only use session based segments to filter the flow views.
I think I am still not fully understanding how adding the user_id field to anonymous users would allow you to use GA in any different way to how you can already.
