To do this, perform the following steps:

  1. Create a user account at Google Analytics;
  2. Create an Account and Property for your book;
  3. Assign the Property with the URL of your book (e.g., https://edtechbooks.org/lidtfoundations);
  4. In your Property settings, find your Tracking ID in the tracking code (e.g., UA-XXXXXXXX-X);
  5. Copy this Tracking ID, and paste it into the Google Analytics ID field while editing your book;
  6. Save your book.

After completing these steps, you should be able to access the Google Analytics dashboard for your book and see any active users.

For further help setting up and using Google Analytics (i.e., steps 1-4), please consult the Google Analytics documentation for developers.
