Replied to How To Track User Events And Report On Usage?

Good idea, thanks for the thought. It's not exactly what I'm looking for, but thanks again.

I'm hoping to find something that is from the perspective of a SaaS founder. You have a laravel app. You want to know when people start a trial, they use feature 1 a lot, they use feature 2 even more, they upgrade to your pro plan, etc.

I want to store those sort of events, then be able to report on them in meaningful ways. It seems something like this should already exist, but maybe I'm searching for the wrong terms. Maybe it's as simple as Google Analytics events/tagging.

Started a new Conversation How To Track User Events And Report On Usage?

Hi all, I'm looking to setup a system for tracking user events across our app. I want to track things like... what features are being used and how often they're being used.

Whenever features are used, I plan to kickoff a job that would eventually save the event.

But I'm wondering where/what is the best place to save this event data? In a mysql events table? In redis? Something else?

The goal would be to store the data in a way I can easily pull from that data and create charts/graphs on the data to let me know how our app is being used. It would be nice to easily run queries/reports that can group across timestamps or other data to see how the usage changes over time.

Is there something out there already built for this? Any libraries I should know about? Or just roll with my mysql table and write some queries?

Thanks!

Replied to Users Logged Out Every Couple Minutes

A few things I've tried:

  • Change SESSION_DRIVER to database
  • Change SESSION_LIFETIME
  • Make sure SESSION_COOKIE is unique to each instance of my app

Started a new Conversation Users Logged Out Every Couple Minutes

Hi all, I have a Laravel/Spark app that is on the latest version. Our app is a single-page Vue app with Laravel/Spark on the backend. When our users login, after a couple minutes of usage they are logged out. We're hosted on Forge and I use Laravel Valet locally and I can replicate on both.

I've checked all the usual stuff (session config, php settings, using database sessions), done lots of googling/tweaks, but no luck. Anything other ideas?

At this point I'd love to chat with an expert and show them what I'm seeing. Anyone working today and want to make a quick buck?

Thanks!
