Question

Implementing Mixpanel using GTM


Hi there!

 

I used the guide (https://help.mixpanel.com/hc/en-us/articles/360001355166-Implementing-Mixpanel-with-Google-Tag-Manager) to install Mixpanel via GTM using the following steps:

  1. Dev added Mixpanel lib HTML code snippet to back-end
  2. I set up Mixpanel lib and page view event in Mixpanel

I’m seeing a lot of the ‘Sign Up’ event in the live data view because I can see it’s in the code snippet below highlighted from here (https://developer.mixpanel.com/docs/javascript-quickstart). My question is would this track event be necessary, and if so why is it ‘Sign Up’? And is there a chance of it firing twice because I’ve put it in the web html and GTM tag?

 

Also if I wanted to set up a funnel for specific page views, what would the code snippet we need to set up in GTM?

 

<script type="text/javascript"> (function(f,b){if(!b.__SV){var e,g,i,h;window.mixpanel=b;b._i=[];b.init=function(e,f,c){function g(a,d){var b=d.split(".");2==b.length&&(a=a[b[0]],d=b[1]);a[d]=function(){a.push([d].concat(Array.prototype.slice.call(arguments,0)))}}var a=b;"undefined"!==typeof c?a=b[c]=[]:c="mixpanel";a.people=a.people||[];a.toString=function(a){var d="mixpanel";"mixpanel"!==c&&(d+="."+c);a||(d+=" (stub)");return d};a.people.toString=function(){return a.toString(1)+".people (stub)"};i="disable time_event track track_pageview track_links track_forms track_with_groups add_group set_group remove_group register register_once alias unregister identify name_tag set_config reset opt_in_tracking opt_out_tracking has_opted_in_tracking has_opted_out_tracking clear_opt_in_out_tracking start_batch_senders people.set people.set_once people.unset people.increment people.append people.union people.track_charge people.clear_charges people.delete_user people.remove".split(" "); for(h=0;h<i.length;h++)g(a,i[h]);var j="set set_once union unset remove delete".split(" ");a.get_group=function(){function b(c){d[c]=function(){call2_args=arguments;call2=[c].concat(Array.prototype.slice.call(call2_args,0));a.push([e,call2])}}for(var d={},e=["get_group"].concat(Array.prototype.slice.call(arguments,0)),c=0;c<j.length;c++)b(j[c]);return d};b._i.push([e,f,c])};b.__SV=1.2;e=f.createElement("script");e.type="text/javascript";e.async=!0;e.src="undefined"!==typeof MIXPANEL_CUSTOM_LIB_URL?
