A possibility to tag/mark/flag visitors manually directly in the visitorlog with an individual text (simple text input field)
Should be stored only within piwik as something like a label or addition to visitor ID
And of course it would be helpful to be able to filter via segment-editor for this...
One of several use-cases:
This would be really helpful, to manually mark visits with special characteristics you find during visit analysis when trying to find problems with your website etc.
some of this was already mentioned as a sideline in https://github.com/piwik/piwik/issues/1839
hmm maybe one do not need a complete new "field" but the possibility to add a custom variable afterwards via the piwiks backend in visitorlog? or is this within the piwik cookie? Of course this tag/mark/flag should stay within piwik...
@mattlab Would you see this as a piwik function or as a new plugin?
@hpvd it could be both, but maybe it would make more sense as a new plugin
to more questions @mattlab:
do you have any advise/ preference already in mind how this could/should be implemented from technical pow?
Not really, didn't think about this yet. I guess we would need a new dimension for visits (new table column), and then let Piwik user tag the visitors within the Visitor Log. This new dimension could be available as segment.
are there any plans on possibilities how one could vote for / or help with partial sponsoring to give new features one like a good position on the global roadmap (at least for a raw but usable version)?
unfortunately no, we are very much under resourced and we are focused for the next 6 months on Piwik 3.0: https://github.com/piwik/piwik/milestones/3.0.0
Best way to be heard about features is to post a comment in the issue, because we read all comments :-)
since this feature could be done best directly in visitor log, https://github.com/piwik/piwik/issues/6111 should be needed for this too
Tagging would bring great value to the piwik platform. The first and most needed tag feature would be to associate a ip address or the "user profile". Put to a vote from the end users I have to believe this would be one of the top three features they would like to see. It's my #1. Keep up the good work
+1, tagging would make Piwik even more unique.
We would also appreciate a possibility to vote for features or something like a donation account to give great features a boost....
this would perfectly fit within a standardised approach for all actions on tracked data, described in #9182
+1 for this feature!
+1 as well! Would be really a helpful feature!
