You've installed the InGo Activator (formerly Login widget), and everything is working great until you realize that when a user logs in with one of the social network buttons on the InGo widget, your analytics platform loses sight of what happens. You might be tempted to turn one the "Forward Query String" option. But if you did you would quickly realize that this only solves the problem when someone gets to the page where the Activator (Login) widget is through a series of pages, but when they go directly to that page (for example from an email link or a link on another site or an ad), the widget drops (or more correctly doesn't know about and doesn't pass on) your analytic tokens. In this article, we'll describe one solution to this type of problem using a Google Analytics example.
Script Your Next URL
<!-- Activator widget passing along Google Analytics tags -->
data-ingo-manual="return 'https://www.example.com/reg.htm?_ga=' + _ga.getByName('bu').get('clientId');"
Here we are changing the "manual" setting from a static URL to dynamic script content. Also we are setting the "data-ingo-is-manual-script" parameter to true, letting the Activator widget know that it should treat the manual value as script and execute it.
NOTE: the specifics of the GA call might change so please make sure to look at the docs for the specific call you need to make in your situation and with the version of GA or other analytic tool your using
I hope this has been helpful and enables you to track your users with InGo better.
