The Google Analytics package consists of two major components:

  • Google Analytics Connector: establishes and maintains the connection to your Google Analytics application, in order to retrieve and manage the analytics data of your site.
  • Google Analytics View: represents a single view (profile) in your Google Analytics account. You can use this asset to display reports and summaries of the data of your site.

Integration with Edit+ for Squiz Matrix

Once a Google Analytics connection and authentication has been established, this connection can be used to communicate with your Edit+ for Squiz Matrix installation to provide analytics data for your site via the Analytics screen.
