How to link Installer Analytics with the installer

Mon Jun 10, 2019 12:49 pm


In case you have a subscription for Installer Analytics and need to link to your installers here's more details.

In the Analytics view from Advanced Installer you can track your installations, just enable the Installer Analytics. Once the checkbox has been enabled, an ID will be generated for your application, its tracking code.

By default, each application is public, it does not have an owner. That means, anyone that has the link can see its reports:
https://installeranalytics.com/app/#/ap ... phic/world

At this step, if you don't have an account, you can Sign Up or Login if you have an account:

To get your application to your account, the following approaches can be used:

1) Import application

For registered users, when seeing the reports for a public application you have the option to Import application:

After this step, the application will be imported to your account.

2) Create a tracking code in the Analytics account

You can create a tracking code for your application that will be used in your Analytics account, removing the default generated one:

Enter a name, how you will name your application e.g. its name from ProductDetails view.:

Once you do this, a tracking code will be generated for you. You need to use this tracking code in the Analytics page. Copy the Tracking Code generated from your Analytics account so that you can track the installers that you want.

Just use this code in the Analytics page and rebuild your project. The first generated code is mostly for testing purposes, as you don't really need an account on our Analytics page so that you can see information regarding installation.

The Installer Analytics will start to send information regarding installation on your account, no more public apps.

After copying the code from your Analytics account from the web, the Analytics view should be like this:

Notice please that the first generated tracking code was removed, and the one from my Analytics account is being used.
