Adds custom Google Analytics dashboard widgets to the RainLab Google Analytics plugin. Custom widgets allow you to specify Google Analytics dimensions and metrics in the widget configuration.

Just some of the widgets this plugin allows you to create

Analytics Extension

Before installing the Google Analytics Extension plugin, make sure your project already has the RainLab Google Analytics plugin installed and configured. Once this is done, you're ready to start creating your perfect dashboard. Here are some examples to get you started...

Bar Charts

Bar charts are great for comparing values against each other. In this example, we'll create a bar chart to show how many users are visiting our site in the 10 most common cities.

Row Value
Widget Title Top Cities
Dimension ga:city
Metric ga:users
Results to display 10

Pie Charts

Pie charts are useful for displaying the make up of data as a whole. Here we'll create a pie chart comparing the number of returning visitors to first time visitors.

Row Value
Widget Title Visitor Types
Dimension ga:userType
Metric ga:sessions

Percentage Charts

Percentage charts will display the make up of data as a percentage of it's total. In this final example, we'll create a percentage chart to display how much of our website's traffic is coming from various device categories.

Row Value
Widget Title Device Overview
Dimension ga:deviceCategory
Metric ga:visits
Dimension Label Device
Metric Label Visits

    Great extension, works perfectly except for custom dimensions set up in Google Analytics (e.g. "dimensionXX" etc) that I can't use there and would be a great feature.

    Perhaps I missed a step (but I don't think so, set up is pretty straight forward) but beeing able to display custom dimensions and metrics would be a great update!

    Keep up the good work!

    This plugin works great, only downside was I spent one hour trying to find the plugin name. Now I have it installed I see Voita added it to the review. My only suggestion please add the plugin name to the documentation so then easy to install. Other than that the plugin works great and managed to create lots of custom widgets error free.

    Very good universal plugin, I like it. Try it and works.

    Plugin name: Bedard.AnalyticsExtension

    In most cases is good to write installation guide, because not everyone know proper plugin name.
