Google Analytics

Matomo (formally Piwik) Analytics has been phased out of usage and at the end of Spring 2020 all access to Matomo will be turned off. 

VCU eIDs can support Google Analytics. Once you set it up, it is required that you grant user management permissions. This is to assure access continuity in the unlikely event that somebody decides to leave the university. More details on requirements can be found in VCU's Web Standards and Guidelines.

Due to the amount of support for Google Analytics by their vendor, Google, VCU does not officially offer support for the product.
