Step 10: Google Analytics

Create a Google Analytics tracking ID to see usage data 

You will want to track user activity within your app in order to gain insights into how users are engaging with your app and content. MAZ uses Google Analytics to track this data. You will create and manage your own Google Analytics account, this is something that is not managed or set up by MAZ. However, we do ask that you pass along some permissions and information for us so we can set up tracking within your apps. Follow the instructions below to get set up.
