On May 24 we will apply our GDPR compliance features, plus minor module security updates to EdWeb. These will allow us, and you, to meet new data protection requirements.

The brave new world of European data protection laws mean that web analytics will not be a ‘GDPR-free’ zone. So I thought I’d note here what I expect to change (and remain the same) after 25 May.

On March 28 we will apply the latest set of improvements, module updates and security patches to EdWeb. We will also deploy event enhancements – attractive ways for your site visitors to browse event advertisements.

Tools are available to help research the keywords our visitors use when searching our sites. We can use this information to better understand their needs, and to optimise our content to meet those requirements.

Last year, I visited the Social Media Community to discuss the potential for social media analytics, and to review what we had achieved with social sharing buttons in EdWeb.

The first EdWeb deployment of 2018 will take place on 18 January, when we will update the system with security updates and bug fixes.

It’s time to wish a happy first birthday to customisable short addresses using the shortener, and take a moment to celebrate the success of this service.

On November 15 we will apply the latest set of improvements, module updates and security patches to EdWeb. These will include an update to our site theme, improved help text, and bug fixes.

On October 12, the central University site ( will be amended to provide secure delivery. This could mean you have changes to make to your EdWeb site.

I’ve decided to instate a new mailing list for University Google Analytics users. This comes as a response to a number of interface changes recently instated by Google, and feedback received from our regular training course attendees.
