Frequently Asked Questions
Through Google Analytics, how can I track if a students has successfully submitted an application?
Google Analytics allows you to track page arrivals with valid URLs, for example, https://yourdomain.schoolmint.net/myfamily/ or https://yourdomain.schoolmint.net/applicants/new. When a student application is submitted, a SchoolMint URL is not generated which makes this task not trackable.
