Most of the time, when building a PHP product that requires users to authenticate and sign in to access the product, you may decide that it is essential to track the sign-in attempts.
Monitoring the sign-in events is an excellent way to track the number of users who continue to log in and use your PHP application. This is a great way to gauge the effectiveness of your product and measure your user retention rate.
A good understanding of this metric is critical to the success of a product. It can give you great insight into how your business grows and how your users interact with your PHP product.
An easy way to set up event tracking is to use LogSnag, a simple event tracking tool that works seamlessly with PHP.
