Configuring Analytics

On the settings page, there’s a subsection in the Developers section for Analytics. From here, you can supply a URL and, optionally, authorization token for Explo to send information to and select the set of actions you want reported.

Note that the url must be formatted as a valid url with http:// or https://.

When, for example, your dashboard is viewed from a Share link, Explo will send a request to the supplied URL with the following shape.
