  1. Set the engagement tracking event interval. (Defaults to 10 secs.)
  2. Set the max engagement time, which allows you to customize when the session should be
    considered abandoned. (Defaults to 20 mins.)
  3. Set the minimum engagement time, which can be used to set an initial amount of time
    required to count the user has having engaged. (Defaults to 10 secs.)
  4. Customize the event Category, Action and Label names to be displayed in Google Analytics.
  5. Create goals in Google Analytics based on the time on page. (GA goals only support session duration by default!)
  6. Uses either the old pageTracker code, the newer asynchronous code, or the newest Universal Analytics code.
  7. Choose header or footer placement for the code.
  8. Compatible with Ajaxify jQuery plugin.
