Enable Google Analytics User-ID integration
Google Analytics User-ID integration is a single-click solution to help you find visits for specific users. This CUX feature extends recording search options allowing you to look for particular visits that caught your eye in Google analytics.
If you have User-ID feature enabled in your Google Analytics, flick the switch in CUX to get started. When Analytics User-ID integration is enabled, you can go to your recordings and find visits for specific users that Google has identified.
Before you begin
This integration works only with Google Analytics that has the User-ID feature enabled. This means that you have:
- reviewed, accepted, and complied with the User-ID policy from Google,
- set up User-ID in your tracking code,
- created a User-ID reporting view. For more information, see Analytics help site.
Enabling Analytics integration
To enable Google Analytics integration, log in to CUX and go to Integrations. Find the Google Analytics User ID tile and enable integration.
Everything works in an instant. If you have activated the User-ID feature in Analytics, wait for some time until new recordings start and finish. As soon as the recordings are ready, you can inspect visits specific people paid to your site. Please note that it may take some time to have recordings for the sessions that Analytics combines and presents to you as unique visits.
