How to track logged-in users activity/page visits on Wordpress by Google Analytics?

Is there any plugin can do this?

We want to track logged-in users page activities.

Hi @Classic M and @Vintage P,

 

it's possible, e.g. with the gtm4wp plugin from Thamasz Geiger.

 

P.S.: Will you both please change your disgusting profile pictures? Thanks in advance!

Does that plugin sends data to Google Analytics?

Or we have to setup Google Tag Manager's tags etc.?

@Vintage P, you have to setup a GTM account, and, yes, of course, you must set up tags and triggers and variables. Just read the documentation on the gtm4wp site and check the box within the plugin for tracking logged in users.

I have successfully setup but where can I see the logged-in username and its whereabouts? In which google analytics option shows this?

Okay thank you but I have found different way of viewing user-id's. There is no need for the tag manager.

Just adding some code into universal tracked will do the trick.

Now it shows user id's. But not in real time reports.

Anyways thanks.

Hi @Vintage P,

 

@Classic M asked for tracking "logged-in users", not for user ids!

And of course there are ways to view client ids and user ids (different btw.) and there's even a function for activating user ids (don't forget the new view and enabling the possibility to provide users with an id via your website) and furthermore a new function via check box in the property to track users over different devices, but THAT wasn't the question!

So, how to display active logged in users (user-id's) in real time analytics?
