What is an event

Events are collected behaviours of a customer.

Different types of information can be fetched depending on the event type.

Each event contains:

  • Timestamp (time and date),
  • Payload (varies for each event type, more details below).

 

Timestamp

The timestamp is recorded in the following format yyyy-mm-dd hh:mm:ss

In most cases, it shows when exactly an event happened in the browser (uses the clock set up in the browser). 

Each time the event reaches the server there is also a reception side noted on the server-side that helps to verify timestamp noted in the browser. 

Remember: By default, Meiro Events uses time recorded by the browser.  

It is because it is the most precise as information travelling to the server may have a delay ( for example due to poor internet connection or other distractions).

Remember: But in cases when Meiro Events detects a discrepancy between time recorded by the browser versus time recorded by the server, the time recorded by the server will be used as the most accurate. 

For example, it can happen that a user does not have time set up correctly on his device. In those cases, time noted by the server is perceived as the most correct one. 

Timestamp from the browser is translated to UTC timezone and to the local timezone on the server-side.

 

Payload

Payload varies for each type of event. This is the data that is collected for a particular event. 

For each event we know:

  • User ID,
  • Session ID,
  • Fingerprint (unique identifier).

 

Types of events possible to track
