You can find Analytics System Settings under the drop-down menu on the right-hand side of your Piwik PRO Platform:

Here you will be able to manage the following settings:

  • E-mail reports – Here you can schedule and find all already scheduled reports or create new ones.
  • Meta Sites – Here you can add the new ones and manage existing Meta Sites. In case of any questions do not hesitate to take a look at our Meta Sites FAQ
  • General Settings – let you take care of different options and settings, for example Multi Attribution.
  • Privacy Settings – On this page, you can customize Piwik to make it privacy compliant with existing legislation, by: anonymizing the visitor IP, automatically remove old visitor logs from the database, and providing an Opt-out mechanism for your website.
  • Mobile Messaging – you can create SMS reports and receive short text messages with your websites’ stats on your mobile phone thanks to the Mobile Messaging feature.
  • ClickPath Settings – The ClickPath report is available in the Goals reports in Analytics section. ClickPath lists the most commonly used sequence of Page URLs followed by visitors who converted a Goal. Here you can turn it on or off and manage the settings like defining Content Groups and/or choosing to exclude some Pages which are not relevant to the ClickPath report.
  • Websites Settings – here you can exclude particular IPs (e.g. internally used ones) from being tracked by Piwik PRO, exclude the list of URL Query Parameters from the Page URLs reports, exclude the list of user agents. You can also use Piwik PRO to track and report what visitors are searching on your website’s internal search engine.
  • Custom Dimensions – here you can configure new visit or action dimensions.
  • Widgets – With Piwik, you can export your Web Analytics reports on your blog, website, or intranet dashboard… in one click.
  • API – All the data in Piwik is available through simple APIs. This plugin is the web service entry point, that you can call to get your Web Analytics data in XML, JSON, PHP, CSV, etc.
  • Custom Variables – shows all custom variable slots and their usages for website ‘Demo website (do not remove)’. The names within each slot are ordered by how often they were used in total.
  • Activity log – Your activity log is a list of your and your team’s activity, from today back to the very beginning.
