Integrating KISSmetrics with VWO helps you push data from test pages to KISSmetrics and allows you to monitor or compare data in KISSmetrics.

The end-to-end process of integrating KISSmetrics with VWO involves the following steps:

  1. Adding tracking code to test pages
  2. Viewing your VWO Test ID

Adding Tracking Code Test Pages

  1. Add the following code snippet on the pages where the VWO test is running. The snippet works with both Synchronous and Asynchronous code of VWO, regardless of the location.
    <script type="text/javascript">
    var _vis_opt_queue = window._vis_opt_queue || [], _vis_counter = 0, _kmq = _kmq || [];
    _vis_opt_queue.push(function() {
    try {
    if(!_vis_counter) {
    var _vis_data = {},_vis_combination,_vis_id,_vis_l=0;
    for(;_vis_l<_vwo_exp_ids.length;_vis_l++) {
    _vis_id = _vwo_exp_ids[_vis_l];
    if(_vwo_exp[_vis_id].ready) {
    _vis_combination = _vis_opt_readCookie('_vis_opt_exp_'+_vis_id+'_combi');
    if(typeof(_vwo_exp[_vis_id].combination_chosen) != "undefined")
    _vis_combination = _vwo_exp[_vis_id].combination_chosen;
    if(typeof(_vwo_exp[_vis_id].comb_n[_vis_combination]) != "undefined") {
    _vis_data['VWO-Test-ID-'+_vis_id] = _vwo_exp[_vis_id].comb_n[_vis_combination];
    // Use the _vis_data object created above to fetch the data,
    // key of the object is the Test ID and the value is Variation Name
    if(_vis_counter) _kmq.push(['set', _vis_data]);
    catch(err) {};
  2. After you have added the VWO code, check the Tracked Properties section in KISSmetrics with the name VWO-Test-ID-# (where # is the test ID. You will find the variation name displayed for the visitor inside the test.
    For example, VWO-Test-ID-120.

Viewing your VWO Test ID

Follow these steps to view the test ID in the VWO dashboard:

  1. Select test for which you want to view the ID.
  2. On the test details page, select the Settings tab and then click Summary.kissmetrics-vwo
  3. Next, go to the Other Information section of the page to view the Campaign ID.kissmetrics-vwo1

SPA Integration

For any SPA integration with VWO, you must add the following code snippet to the website, anywhere between <head> </head> elements, but before the second code snippet. This code is common for all SPA integration and must be installed only once even if you have multiple tools to integrate. For example, you may want to integrate both Omniture and Mixpanel.

The first code snippet is common to all SPA integrations, while the second snippet is specific to the tool you want to integrate.

<script type="text/javascript">
!function(v,w,o){var e=[],t=[],z=function(n,a){a.e===n[0]&&a.c.apply(this,[n])},u=function(n,a){a.e&&a.e!==n[1]||a.v&&a.v!==n[2]||a.c.apply(this,[n])},c=function(n){for(var a=0;a<t.length;a++)z(n,t[a]);if("rH"===n[0]||"vS"===n[0])for(a=0;a<e.length;a++)u(n,e[a])},r=w.push;w.push=function(){var n=arguments[0];c(n),r.apply(w,[]},v.onVariationApplied=function(n,t,s){"function"==typeof n&&(s=n,n=null,t=null),s=s||o;var c={e:n,v:t,c:s};e.push(c);for(var r=0;r<w.length;r++)("rH"===w[r][0]||"vS"===w[r][0])&&u(w[r],c)},v.onEventReceive=function(n,e){e=e||o;var s={e:n,c:e};t.push(s);for(var c=0;c<w.length;c++)z(w[c],s)}}(window.VWO=window.VWO||[],window._vwo_evq=window._vwo_evq||[], function(){});</script>

In Addition to the code above, you must add the following additional code for Kissmetrics.

<script type="text/javascript">(function () {
var vwoKmData = {},
window._kmq = window._kmq || [];
window.VWO.push(['onVariationApplied', function (data) {
if(!data) {
var expId = data[1],
variationId = data[2];
if(typeof(_vwo_exp[expId].comb_n[variationId]) !== 'undefined' && ['VISUAL_AB','VISUAL','SPLIT_URL','SURVEY'].indexOf(_vwo_exp[expId].type) >-1) {
vwoKmData['VWO-Test-ID-' + expId] = _vwo_exp[expId].comb_n[variationId];
dataSendingTimer = setTimeout(function () {
window._kmq.push(['set', vwoKmData]);
vwoKmData = {};
}, 100);
