Help – Swipe Pro Guide

Swipe Pro gives you peace of mind and insights that you don't get by sending a PDF attached in an email. With Swipe Pro, you can password protect your decks to keep them secure and make sure only those with permission can view the content. With Analytics, you can track how people interact with your deck, when they see it, revisit it, and where they drop off. This guide teaches you how to get started and get the most out of the Swipe Pro features.

Password Protection

Password protected decks can only be viewed by your collaborators and people who know the password. The owner and all collaborators will be able to see the deck without having to enter the password, whereas everybody else will have to enter it to see it. Password protection overrides the Public / Private setting on your deck and replaces it with a new Password protected viewing mode.

To set a password, press Edit on an existing presentation or create a new one. Hover over the area in the top left of your screen and press it to access the Manage deck menu. Then, find the Password protection option and press it to set your password.

Pro

Enter the password you’d like your deck to be protected by. You can change this password any time. All of your collaborators (with edit permissions) can see the password to the deck. They can also change the current password or add a new one.

Pro

After you’ve set it, each person accessing your deck will have to enter the password to access the presentation. You won't see this screen and those with edit permissions won't either. To test that password protection works, open the presentation in an incognito browser tab or log out of Swipe and then go to the presentation link.

Pro

To remove password protection, head back to the Edit mode of the deck, press Password protection in the Manage deck toolbar, click the password field and press Remove password.

Analytics

Analytics in Swipe work on a per-deck basis – meaning that you can track each one of your decks individually. Track real-time visitors, demographics of your audience, or where they came from. To use it, you need a free Google Analytics account. You can create one here.

To add Analytics to an individual deck, you need to set up a Property in Google Analytics. Log into your admin panel, press the Property drop-down, and press Create new property. You can read more about setting up new Properties here.

Pro

Afterwards, name your new property after the name of your deck and paste your share URL (https://swipe.to/xyz123) in the Website URL field. Make sure you pick https:// instead of http://.

Pro

Press Get Tracking ID to get your unique tracking code that Swipe will use to track your deck. Copy the tracking code from the next page. It’ll look something like UA-68240904-2, as pictured below.

Pro

Back in Swipe, when editing your deck, find Analytics in the Manage Deck menu. Paste in your code and press Add tracking to complete the set-up. The presentation will be tracked from that moment, but it might take some time until results show up in Google Analytics (typically within 24 hours).

Pro

With that, you're all set up. You can begin tracking in real-time or analyzing past performance with the power of Google Analytics.

How to see which slides are doing better than others

Each slide in Swipe has its own unique Slide ID. Google Analytics shows that as a Page. In Google Analytics, press the Behavior section in the left sidebar and then press Overview.

The slide URL comes after the Presentation URL and looks something like #page=xyz123. In Google Analytics you'll see how many views each slide received. If you click on one of the slide URLs in Google Analytics, you'll get a detailed overview of the slide itself.

Google Analytics can be configured to show almost anything you'd want to know about how people are interacting with your presentation. To learn more about how to set up Google Analytics and get the most out of it, visit the Google Analytics Help Center.
