How can I set up reporting for page scrolls?


Avaliable from 16.17.0

Needed permissions: owner, manage, edit & publish or edit

Note: For versions below 16.17.0, use a manual scroll tracking method.

Piwik PRO tracks page scrolls automatically and saves scroll data as custom events. To see how far visitors scroll on a given page, you need to set up a custom report. In this article, we’ll show you how.

To set up reporting for page scrolls, follow these steps:

  1. Go to Menu > Analytics.
  2. Navigate to Custom reports.
  3. Click Add a report.
  4. Choose the following report type: Explorer.
  5. Name the report. Example: Page scrolls.
  6. Choose the Visibility option: Author or All users. The All users option lets you share this report with other teammates.
  7. In Nested dimensions, set the following dimensions:
    • Page URL
    • Custom event action
