Piwik can be used to track websites (including intranet websites) and mobile apps.
Maybe we can design a simple but better way to manage Intranet websites for users?
What's the value in creating an intranet website VS a normal website?
trust_visitors_cookiesand enable it always for this intranet site
trust_visitors_cookies, as documented in How do I track visits on my intranet?, and it would help users to remove this step
groupattribute will put all intranet websites in one group like in Website groups plugin)
if you want to see better Intranet analytics in Piwik feel free to post your comments and suggestions on how we could improve reporting for Intranet websites, we're listening :-)
Small comment: I was always reluctant to set "trust_visitors_cookies = 1" because I currently host both Public websites and Intranets on the same Piwik installation.
Reading the FAQ 2 years ago I decided to not set that setting and I stayed with the impression that setting up "trust_visitors_cookies" I would need a second Piwik installation.
At least, at the documentation level, you could add something about hosting both kind of sites and the impact/possibility to set trust_visitors_cookies and hosting a public website.
Managing intranet/internet sites separatly seems to me a great idear. I'm tracking both too and i would like to enable the do not track option for internet sites and disable it for my intranet sites. Or why not for a given site.
Thx a lot !
Moving to 3.6.1 (one of our customer directly needs this). it is still important to bring more flexibility, as one does not want to enable
trust_visitors_cookies across all sites. We are getting this problem from time to time and the consequences are ugly. It simply does not make sense to have this as a global setting and end up creating buggy data for internet sites. So let's improve this behavior. Thoughts:
