Simple Automation for Data Insights

Learn to harness Alice for quick and effortless access to your Simple Analytics reports

How this Remote Action works?

Alice's automation capability allows for seamless integration with thousands of applications, including Simple Analytics. By setting up custom snippets within Alice, users can retrieve specific analytics reports, such as weekly website statistics, without manually navigating through the analytics platform.

What you can accomplish?

This automation enables you to quickly access a range of data from Simple Analytics, including page views, visitor counts, and custom event tracking. It simplifies the process of analyzing your website's performance by fetching tailored reports for any specified date range directly through Alice.

How to set it up?

  1. Create a custom snippet in Alice named "Simple Analytics Report" tailored to your data retrieval needs, such as fetching statistics for the past week.
  2. Specify the start and end dates for the report within the snippet, allowing Alice to format these into the correct format automatically.
  3. Include the domain for which you're seeking analytics, ensuring it's formatted correctly for Simple Analytics to recognize.
    • In Make, set up an automation that:Receives data from Alice.
    • Makes a request to Simple Analytics for the specified data.
    • Processes the response to generate a table or report format of choice.
    • Returns the processed data back to Alice for easy viewing.

Ideas for extending this Remote Action

  • Configure alternative pathways within the automation to create and upload CSV reports of extensive data (e.g., yearly events) directly to cloud storage solutions like Google Drive.
  • Expand the automation to integrate with other analytics platforms (Mixpanel, Google Analytics, Heap Analytics) or different types of platforms altogether, such as CRMs (Pipedrive, HubSpot) for varied data insights.

What is Simple Analytics?

Simple Analytics is a privacy-friendly analytics tool that provides clear and straightforward insights into website traffic without tracking individual users. It's an excellent tool for those who value user privacy while still wanting to understand website performance.

  • Other analytics tools include Google Analytics, Mixpanel, Heap Analytics, and Hotjar. Each offers unique features and levels of insight into user interactions and website performance, catering to different needs and privacy concerns.
