Introduction

Thanks to in-app events you can track user activity inside your app. You can keep track of events such as registration, passing levels, purchases, etc. as in-app events. The implementation of in-app events is mandatory for all post-install analysis purposes. 

Types of events

In-app events can be divided into two categories:

  • Basic in-app events are standard in-app events that help you understand user activity inside your app. 

Examples:
level1_finished
level2_start
app_login
  • Rich in-app events are the same as basic in-app events but let you get more detailed information about the event through a number of parameters. You will learn more about them in step 1.
    Through parameters, you can send additional information about the event. For example, you can not only learn that app was opened but also the exact date and time.

Examples:
level1_finished (result)
level2_start(time)
app_login(date)


Recommended events

You need to select the events that best suit your application.

Recommendations:

  • For better navigation through reports, we recommend using the same event names in your app across all platforms.

  • Create all kinds of events with a maximum number of details that describe user actions in your application.

  • We recommend using only lower-case alpha-numeric characters (a-z and 0-9) for your in-app event names.

Examples (for other apps):
appodeal_initialized
complete_registration
user_login
tutorial_completion
on_search
content_view
in_app_purchase
Examples (for games):
game_start
game_win
game_end
main_menu_open
game_lose
round_start
round_end
pause_menu_open
design_dialog_open
settings_dialog_open
design_application_changed
level1_complete
appodeal_consent_dialog_open
appodeal_consent_dialog_result

Step 1: How to track in-app events

Appodeal SDK allows you to send events to the following analytic services  using a single method:


Appodeal.LogEvent("appodeal_sdk_test_event");

Send events with params if required.

Appodeal.LogEvent("logEventWithParams",
    new Dictionary<string, object>
    {
        { "testKey1", "testParam1" },
        { "testKey2", 42 },
        { "testKey3", 0.42d }
    });


Please note:

Event parameters can only be strings and numbers, they allow you to send additional information about the event in your app.

Step 2: Configure in-app events on the MMP side

Some additional steps may be needed on the MMP side to complete events setup.
