Analytics Powered by Mixpanel

Last modified March 25, 2020

Analytics for your GTxcel Digital Editions are now powered by Mixpanel.

Analytics data is available directly from the publisher dashboard.  Just click the “Analytics” button on any issue card for your publication to view analytics data.

The first tab is the Overview.  On this tab you will find combined data from all the issues in your publication.

This includes data from Apps and Web.  The default Date Range is the last 30 days.  You can select from one of the presets or choose a custom date range.

To view data from one specific issue, click on the Issue Content tab.  Select an Issue with the Issue filter.  The issues are sorted by date published.

The most commonly accessed information is available within these report tabs.  Click Dig Deeper at Mixpanel to use the Mixpanel reporting interface to access additional metrics and segmentation.  Contact GTxcel’s professional services team to discuss the creation of custom reports tailored for your business.

GTxcel released new versions of all apps on October 15th, 2015.  After this release is installed, apps will stop tracking events to WebTrends and begin tracking to Mixpanel.  Click the Historical Data at WebTrends to access data from before October 15th, 2015.  This data will be available until October 31, 2016.
