  2. Navigate to Websites & apps.
  3. On the left, pick a site or app you want to set up.
  4. Navigate to Settings.
    Advanced options in Piwik PRO

    Here’s the list of all available options:

    • URL: Your site or app address. If you’re collecting data from a few domains with the same tracking code, add all addresses here.
    • Time zone: We’ll show data in reports in this time zone.
    • Currency: We’ll use this currency for goal revenue. 
    • Page redirect delay: A millisecond delay before a page is redirected to another page after a visitor clicks on a button or submits a from. Used to give tags time to fire.
    • Ask visitors for consent: 
      • If turned on, you’ll display a consent form on your site. You can edit the form by going to Consent Manager. In this mode, you can set other options for collecting data. Read more 
      • If turned off, you’ll collect data without consent. In this mode, you can turn on or off two options: use cookies and use device fingerprinting.
    • Exact match URLs when tracking: Forces Piwik PRO to track data for the website or app with web addresses added in “General settings”.
    • Keep page URL fragments when tracking: Let’s you keep URLs with fragments like #bottom. When turned off, the URL will look like this clearbank.com instead of clearbank.com#bottom.
    • Internal search engine tracking: Allows to track queries that people type in the search engine on your website. You might need to add query parameters to the list to make it work properly.
    • Ecommerce tracking: Allows to track ecommerce data and show it in reports.
    • Exclude IP addresses: Lets you exclude tracking data from a given IP address, for example the IP in your office. To exclude, you can use the wildcard, for example 54.217.*.* or 54.217.240.*.
    • Exclude URL parameters: Lets you exclude parameters from the URL, making your reports look cleaner. For example, instead of the URL that looks like this clearbank.com/?_stg_debug you’ll see the URL that looks like this clearbank.com.
    • Exclude browsers: Lets you add the user-agent string used by the browser that you want to exclude from tracking.
