This is for XenForo 1.2 or higher.

If you enable the API Credentials option, callbacks are made to Google's API servers when you are viewing data coming from your Google Analytics data (for example heatmaps).

There are callbacks made to our licensing server occasionally (never more often than once per hour). Never run in a way that it would affect end user's page load times and will still run if the call ever fails.

Holy cow! Version 3.1 is mind blowing. Exceptional analytics add-on, loving the heat maps. Can't live without this data now. Thanks for the continued development!!
Excellent add-on. Provides great depth to your sites analytics and allows you to really dig in and see how your visitors are interacting with your site. Another quality add-on from DigitalPoint.
great upgrade! A little confusing to setup some of the more advanced bells and whistles, but once those are set, the amount of new info you get from Analytics is amazing!
The data provided through GA with this add-on is really quite useful! Especially like the ecommerce data (from user upgrades). Also appreciate the support!
Great stuff, it improves the amount of data you get from analytics which you are loading anyways. The only major thing I wish I had now was the ability to track user registrations.
You can track user registration... you define goals based on your registration URL (/register/register). It's under your Analytics Admin area.
Good one Shawn
as usual.. perfect work!
