Mixpanel is an advanced analytics platform for mobile and web. Instead of measuring page views, it helps you analyze the actions people take in an application.
Integrating Mixpanel with your Thinkific site can help you to get more detailed information about what users are doing within your course.
In this article we’ll cover how to integrate with Mixpanel, the information that we sent to Mixpanel, and some common uses for this integration.
Integrate with Mixpanel
- If you don’t already have a MixPanel account, go here to sign up. Once you complete the sign-up process, you will need to click the Next button, and Continue move forward with the setup for Thinkific.
- Once that’s done, you’ll need to find the “Token” for your project. To do that, click on the Gear Icon in the top right of the screen and choose My new project
- Copy the Token, under Access Keys as shown below.
- Head back to Thinkific and go to Market & Sell
- Select Integrations
- In the Mixpanel block, paste the Token into the MixPanel token field
- Click Save
And that's it! To test that the integration is working, you can head to your Thinkific site and click on any link. Then, head back to your MixPanel window and you should see that the event(s) have come through to your Mixpanel dashboard (e.g. look under “Insights”).
