I got a question around snowplow’s ability to capture all possible interaction events automatically.
When tracking events in this way, I realize later down the road that I might need to answer new business questions with events data I didn’t track previouly. This requires me to define and setup tracker and wait for the data to be populated again. Not only that this is quite a manual process (esp when this platform is used by many people), it also incurs time delay since we would need to wait for data collection.
My Suggested Solution:
I am thinking that maybe we can just capture all possible user interaction events in the first place so that we can re-visit those raw events data retroactively. This may bloat up the volume of raw data but we can gain time advantage when we want to look at event data we didn’t know we need. The closest similar solution to this is Heap’s autocapture.
- Can snowplow do this?
