Tracking custom Events

One of MetricsWave's most powerful features is the ability to record custom events and obtain information from them.

Events, along with custom parameters, will allow you to view statistics and understand how users are using your application.

Custom Event Stats

Create and Trigger custom events

The first thing it's to create your event. You can do this in the Event view inside our application.

Add a title, a description and all the params that you want to attach if any. After creating the event copy and save the event UUID. You will need it.

Now you just need to trigger the event in your application. This is as simple as making a fetch request to the endpoint with the event UUID you just copied.


Track custom event using visits script

If you are logging your traffic using our visits script. You can log an event window.metricswave() function.

window.metricswave(eventUuid, {email: ''})

Using a POST request

You can also, if you prefer, send a POST request with the params in a json body. In this case it will be something like this {email: ""}.

With POST request is important to set Content-Type: application/json and Accept: application/json headers. Here you can find an example of a request made from bash terminal.

BODY='{"email": ""}'
curl -X POST \
  -H "Content-Type: application/json" \
  -H "Accept: application/json" \
  -d "$BODY"

😍 Dynamic Emoji

Same trigger with different emojis

All events have a hidden emoji parameter. This parameter gives you the option to dynamically change the emoji.

Just add the param &emoji=😍 at the end of your GET request, or as a param in your POST, and the notification will be triggered with this emoji instead of the one configured in the Trigger.
