Adds Google Analytics tracking to emails sent with Django.
Django Email Analytics adds Google Analytics tracking to emails sent with Django. It provides a wrapper for Django’s standard email backends.
Installation and Setup
Install with pip:
pip install django-email-analytics
Then set the email backend in the settings.py file.
EMAIL_BACKEND = 'emailanalytics.backends.AnalyticsEmailBackend'
Set EMAIL_ANALYTICS_BACKEND to the value you previously used for EMAIL_BACKEND. Or if EMAIL_BACKEND was unset, you can leave EMAIL_ANALYTICS_BACKEND unset as well. This will chain the email backends so that django-email-analytics will use your original backend to send messages.
By default, URLs will be replaced only when the mimetype is text/html and the URL occurs within a href attribute.
Set EMAIL_ANALYTICS_REPLACE_TXT to True if you would like to also replace urls occuring in text emails.
If a URL already contains tracking parameters, they are left unchanged.
Otherwise, URLs are tagged with the following parameters:
- utm_source is set to the subject of the email
- utm_medium is set to email
- utm_campaign is set to webapp
See here for a description of the tracking parameters.
