Rating-Widget
Usage Tracking & Email Updates

WordPress.org is an amazing repository and one of the key components which made WordPress such a huge success. Having a plugin or theme on WordPress.org is a mixed blessing: while it can help a lot with distribution, something you will not get much of is your data. We know Rating-Widget's number of downloads and estimated count of active installs, but who, what, where, how and why? Not so much.

Freemius Insights WordPress Opt-In

Users Opt-in

Freemius will automatically add a user-friendly OAuth like opt-in screen, right after your plugin's activation.

Freemius Insights

Measuring & Analyzing

We analyze the tracked data to prioritize missing features, improve user-experience and more.

Freemius Insights Integration

Plugin, improved!

We digest the insights and implement those into the plugin for continuous improvement.

After integrating with Freemius, we’ve made it possible for admins to enable usage tracking (with user permission) from within the WordPress admin area. This feature sends us non-sensitive data about the site, like where Rating-Widget is installed and how it is being used.

Important

The only sensitive data we store is the admin name and email. We do not track or store any personal or business critical data neither from you nor your site users. We keep track of the admin email address simply to get in touch regarding potential security updates, feature announcements, promotions, etc. Tracking data is automatically sent to our servers once you opt-in and then every 24 hours thenceforth (for as long as the plugin is active).

What exactly is tracked?

• Rating-Widget state (active, inactive, uninstalled)
• Rating-Widget version
• Site URL
• WordPress admin name
• WordPress admin email
• WordPress locale (country + language)
• WordPress version
• PHP version
• MySql version
• List of installed plugins
• List of installed themes

This is all done with the intention of making Rating-Widget better and more secure. We do that by tracking how our users are using the plugin, learning why they abandon it, which environments we need to continue supporting, etc. Those valuable data points are key to making data-driven decisions and lead to better UX (user experience), new features, better documentation and other good things.

Are you a plugin or theme developer?

2-min and you get advanced analytics, sites & users capture for your WordPress product.

Opting-out

If at some point after you agree to share the non-sensitive data, you wish to opt-out, and not provide it any longer - you can do so by visiting the Plugins page and clicking the “Opt-out” link next to the plugin’s column.

Thanks for being awesome!
