How to make Polls with Plausible Analytics

#plausible #analytics #privacy 

Plausible Analytics recently introduced Custom props for events (here the docs).

Simple event tracking with Plausible Analytics

Published on
#javascript #analytics 

Do you want to know how users make use of your site? Which links they click most and what converts most?

From the official documentation you can trigger custom events via JS, by including a small utility function plausible:

window.plausible = window.plausible || function() { (window.plausible.q = window.plausible.q || []).push(arguments) }

Whenever you call plausible('...event...') you put a tracking event in a queue (window.plausible.q) and will be tracked.
