Google Analytics summarized simply in Slack.
Arc is designed to help teams stay-on-top of Google Analytics. Let’s face it, most people don’t want to analyze graphs or tables. This is why Arc explains your analytics in a way that everyone understands. It’s simple, clear, and straight-forward.
Signing up is as easy as signing in. If you have a Slack account, then you already have an Arc account. This is because Arc is built on the Slack platform.
Arc uses Slack’s wonderful Add to Slack button. Just press the button, select a channel, and you’re done. There’s no need to type your name, pick an email address, or remember a password. Just Add to Slack and move on.
Once signed up, you’re dropped into the team dashboard. This is a shared space that everyone on your team can access after signing in. Since you just signed up, it’s looking pretty sparse. Let’s change that!
You can add one or more Google accounts. While you may love your team, you may not want to share everything with them. This is why your Google accounts are private to you and not visible to everyone.
You can create one or more summaries. These are reports that summarize a website (or app) tracked by a Google Analytics account. The summaries focus on visitors, because that was requested the most by our early users.
You can choose the Slack channel to send the summaries and how often to receive notifications. Arc will take care of the rest!
Everyday, you’ll learn a little bit about your web activity. Every morning, you’ll learn about the previous day. Every Monday, you’ll learn about the previous week. And on the first day of each month, you’ll learn about the previous month. Those small facts are powerful when known by your entire team!
