Adds Google Analytics tracking to emails sent with Django.

Project description

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 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.

Tracking details

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.
