These days, many R applications collect data from users in one way or another. This can be a simple form that contains some basic information such as name, email, and phone number. Or it can be a more complex form that collects information such as a user's address, credit card information, and more.
Most interactive R applications have some form and are commonly the primary way users interact with the application. Therefore, it is essential to track when a user submits a form in your R application and monitor whether the form submission is successful or whether the user has encountered an error and has not been able to submit the form.
In many cases, a minor problem in the form submission can cause a user to abandon the form and not complete the form submission. This can be a significant problem for your application as it can cause a considerable loss of revenue and user experience.
Fortunately, here at LogSnag, we have created a powerful solution for this problem. LogSnag is a powerful, real-time event tracking tool that works seamlessly with any R application. With LogSnag, you can set up event tracking for anything you want and track when a user submits a form in your R application in real time. You may also set up optional rules to notify you and your team when a user has encountered an error and has not been able to submit the form.
In addition, LogSnag allows you to track user journeys and create a timeline of events for each user. This way, you can always track the activity of a specific user, such as when they have submitted a form and any other activity they have done in your application.
