Analytics Overview

The Analytics tool provides usage stats and analytics for events and calendars created both within the Dashboard and through our APIs. It was built to help you better understand how your users are interacting with the different tools you're using to share your calendars and events.

You can access Analytics here, or via the link on the Analytics product page or at the bottom of the website.

From the Analytics page, you can choose to view analytics for your Add to Calendar button widgets, the Direct URL Method, and your Calendars and Events. The Calendars and Events options will allow you to view analytics for individual calendars and events created via the Dashboard or through the Calendars & Events API. (Please note: CalendarX has its own analytics tool located on its website.)

You can change between these options using the menu on the left side of the analytics page, as shown in the image below.
