New in 4.61: Google Analytics 4 Support

Google will cease processing data through Universal Analytics on July 1, 2023We are excited to announce that we have completed the first phase of our integration with Google Analytics 4 in the 4.61 release.

Phase 1

The first phase will allow you to set your Google Analytics 4 tracking ID in the commercebuild dashboard. You will be able to run both Universal Analytics, as well as Google Analytics 4. To input your Google Analytics 4 tracking ID, login to your dashboard and navigate to System > Site Settings > SEO Settings.

Additionally, at this point only page views and general measurements will be available through Google Analytics 4.

Phase 2

In the second and final phase, which should become available in 4.62.0, the e-commerce events will be added. These events include tracking when a user adds an item to their cart, removes an item from their cart, completes a purchase, etc.

Migrating from Universal Analytics to Google Analytics 4

While commercebuild cannot directly assist with your organization's migration to Google Analytics 4, we may be able to help find a partner who can assist. Please reach out to us via support[@] if you'd like to learn more.

You may also find the migration guidance from Google to be helpful.
