In order to get most out of Blueshift’s features, you need to add “Events” that track user interactions on your website & apps. Blueshift provides various ways to track events:

Event data is associated with customers based on unique profile identifiers.

Recommended Standard e-Commerce Events

We recommend that you track the following events for your users:

  • pageload
  • identify
  • search
  • view
  • add_to_cart
  • purchase

For more information, see Tracking your sites or apps events.

You can also add custom events and use them as custom goals for campaign attribution.

View Events stream

Once integrated, you can view Event stream by going to Setup > Events. You will also be able to look at errors and download the error log.
