  • Hi, great article!
    I’ve only one doubt about how the GA integration works with these tools.
    In my experience it’s only a chance to see both GA and Customer data in the same dashoboard
    but it’s not a real integration between data coming from customer satisfaction or feedback and behavioral data.
    What do you think about?

    • Hi Camilla,
      You are right. You can only see your data, there’s no real integration by which you can get insights on it. But you can do some customization using which you can important insights.
      Here’s what Avinash Kaushik has to say about integrating your survey tool with Google analytics.

      “If you want to integrate your survey results with GA then best option is to pass a common parameter between both. So for example you can pass the anonymous cookie id to the survey and to GA and then use that to tie.

      Another alternative is if your survey has a unique value that identifies it then pass it as a “user defined value” into GA, which also allows you to tie the data and slice and dice.”

      Hope this helps.
