Analyze audience flow in programs
After your program is published (executing), you can monitor it using the Analyze tab. One of the views shown on the Analyze tab is the Monitor view. The Monitor view shows how the audience flows through the program.
To open the Monitor view, click Monitor in the Analyze tab of the Program Designer.
For new programs, monitoring is enabled by default.
To enable monitoring for existing programs, you need to re-publish the program.
Setting up a program for monitoring
For the Scheduled filer or view event, Program creates a new audience each time a group enters an event. For the custom event, Program creates a new audience for the selected entry tracking variable. The name of the new audience is the same as the event name.
When creating events:
- For any event, you can create a new audience each time a group enters the event, or overwrite the existing one. If you create a new audience, each new audience includes the creation time in its name.
For more information, see Designing programs.
