How to Exclude Specific User Roles from Tracking

When it comes to website analytics, sometimes you want to exclude certain user roles from being tracked. This can be particularly useful for roles like administrators, editors, or any custom roles you’ve created. In Burst Statistics, administrators are excluded from tracking by default. However, you can easily customize this setting to exclude other user roles as well.

Steps to Exclude User Roles

  1. Log in to your WordPress Dashboard: Make sure you’re logged in to see all available options.
  2. Navigate to Burst Statistics Settings: Go to the Burst Statistics plugin and click on the “Settings” option.
  3. Go to the Advanced Tab: Within the settings, you’ll find various tabs. Click on the “Advanced” tab to reveal more options.
  4. Locate ‘Exclude User Roles’: Scroll down until you find the “Exclude User Roles” section.
  5. Select User Roles: Here, you’ll see checkboxes before each user role available on your WordPress site. Simply select the roles you wish to exclude from tracking.
  6. Save Changes: Don’t forget to hit the “Save” button to apply your changes.

And that’s it! You’ve successfully excluded specific user roles from being tracked by Burst Statistics.

Why Exclude User Roles?

  • Data Accuracy: Excluding roles like administrators or editors can provide a more accurate representation of visitor behavior.
  • Privacy: For internal roles, you may want to maintain privacy and not track their actions.
  • Resource Optimization: Less tracking means less data storage, which can be beneficial for your server resources.

Now, you can make more informed decisions based on the data that is most relevant to you. Happy tracking!
