    It used to be that when we thought about web analytics, the first platform that came to mind was Google Analytics. It has been like that for a long time, but in recent years we’ve seen a shift as more and more users are opting to try alternatives.

    Some are worried about the impending GA sunset, which will force millions of website owners to transition to G4. Others just want more robust privacy features and full control over their data. 

    With so many companies seeking out new ways to track website performance, We’re making sure to provide teams with even more options—

    How to Connect Matomo to Databox

    To connect a Matomo Account in Databox, go to  Data Manager > + New connection. Type Matomo in the search bar and click on the green Connect button. Next, click the green Connect now button.

    This will open the Authorization window, which is where you will be prompted to enter your Matomo Token and Subdomain URL. For additional steps connecting you can use our Matomo help documentation

    Now that we have connected Matomo, we can go on and create our first dashboard.

    Building a Dashboard Using Matomo Data

    So let’s start by navigating to Databoards > + New Databoard > Start Blank

    Once in the Designer, select Matomo as your data source.

    And all that is left is to create a dashboard. And in this case, we have created a Visits overview that allows us to dig deeper into where our users come from, what devices they use, and even what is the most common resolution on those devices.
