Whatfix provides easy to configure analytics with the most popular analytics tool - Google Analytics (GA). Please note that your Google Analytics configuration needs to be done for your account before you can see the reports below.
You can perform the following actions only after you have configured your Whatfix account to your Google Analytics account
- Track usage of the Flows you have created using Whatfix.
- Track usage of the various Whatfix widgets (Onboarding Popups, Self Help, Beacons, Tasklist, Slideshows, etc.)
The numbers may vary between Whatfix Analytics and Google Analytics. This is because Whatfix Analytics uses India Standard Time (IST) GMT +5:30 timezone and your analytics must be configured in a different timezone. In order to see the same numbers, kindly update the timezone in your Google Analytics account under Admin > View Settings > Time zone country or territory.
