Creating Sankey Diagrams
Sankey Diagrams in Synerise allow the users to reconstruct the flow of customer actions before or after an occurrence of a particular event. Using an event as a reference point, users create charts that present steps to get the answers to questions such as “how much?” and “how is it connected with each other?”.
To collect the events on your website, you need to paste the tracking code into the source of your website.

- All occurrences - It means that if a customer repeated a series of actions, each of them will be counted in the analysis. This way you can count the number of the flow repetitions.
- By selecting one of two following options, choose the reference point of the analysis:
- After event - The system will analyze the flow of customers’ actions after the occurrence of a particular event.
- Before event - The system will analyze the flow of customers’ actions before the occurrence of a particular event.
- Choose an event that is the basis of the analysis. Depending on the option you have selected in step 4, the system generates a chart with the customer actions before or after the event you choose.
