In this chapter we go through a quick setup for a default Google Analytics account.

Follow the steps in order to create a fully usable setup including User-, Session-, Page- and Ecommerce Tracking.

1. Complete Setup

Be sure that your technical setup is completed. Ask your internal IT and consider the https://jentis.atlassian.net/wiki/spaces/PUPDOC/pages/720987.

2. Login

After you have completed your registration, you will have access to your first login-user via email:

Your Login URL

Use this URL to access your JENTIS System.

Example: https://<your short>.weu.jentis.com

Your Username

Use this username to login

Example: admin

Your Password

You will receive an email by JENTIS to set up your own individual password. Use this password to login. You can change your password at anytime with the JENTIS System.

Example: mypass123!

3. Add a new Tracker

To add a new tracker, navigate to the JENTIS Tag Manager (top navigation), and click to Tracker.

In the bottom right corner of the page you will find a Plus-button. Click this button, and you will see all available and licensed Tools you can use as a tracker. If a tool is not clickable and out grayed, that means it is not included within your license.

Now click to the tool of your choice to add a new tracker.

  • Name your new tracker. Because it sometimes makes senses to create more trackers per tool, be sure to find a self-explanatory name for your tracker.
    (for example if you want to use more totally different configurations, it makes sense to separate them by adding more trackers from the same tool, see https://jentis.atlassian.net/wiki/spaces/MYJTMUG/pages/482738287 for more information).

  • Choose for which accounts you want to use your new tracker.

  • Check the checkbox “Automatically generate tags for tracker” if you want JENTIS to set up tags, variables and triggers fully automatically. We highly recommend this if you are using the standard data-queue set up as described at https://jentis.atlassian.net/wiki/spaces/PUPDOC/pages/720987 Thereby, you won't have to define more variables and can directly set up your Google Analytics account.

  • As each tool has different requirements, each tool will ask you for specific account variables. As we are in the process of creating a Google Analytics set up, the system asks you to define the Google-Analytics Property-ID. You can use the same property ID for each account, then enter the value just at the default column, or use different values for each account. Additionally, you can use another value for live and stage system.

  • If you want, you can add other tracker specific account variables, which will be shown just at tags connected to this tracker.

  • Click the “Create tracker” button.

4. Preview your work

Navigate to versions. Here you will be able to preview the current, not yet published version in green. Each account has its own version, so be sure which account you wilsh to preview.

Choose your version and account and click to the preview icon. You will be redirected to our tracking inspector service.

Click to the small triangle icon, and you will be redirected to your website, while JENTIS is loading the previewed version instead of the live version.

Test your new version. Please check the tracking inspector regularly. You will see all tracking streams sent by JENTIS to the pixel receivers (in our example, to Google Analytics).

If something is not working as expected, you can edit every singe variable in the JENTIS Tag Manager once more. After you’ve finished your change, come back to versions and click the big red button “Update Preview”.

If everything works as wished you can start to publish again. If not, please retry.

5. Publish

Navigate to versions again and find the version you will publish. Click on the cloud icon to start the publishing process.

In the popup you can choose for which environment you wish to publish your version (Remember the environments differ because of the different values of your account variables, in our example, different Google Analytics Property IDs).

You created your first Tracker, used the default settings, previewed your work to be sure everything works fine, and finally published your version.

Good feeling, aye?
