Online businesses rely on several external services to do analytics, product development, marketing automation, or sales (Google Analytics, Amplitude, Hubspot, Adjust, Intercom, Salesforce, Pipe drive, Braze…). However, the exponential growth of data sources and the increasing complexity of digital ecosystems have made it harder to have a big picture of the accuracy, reliability, and integrity of your data, as this is scattered and siloed across different SaaS repositories. In this regard, data observability and, with it, the idea of maintaining a clear and precise understanding of how your data is flowing through your systems, becomes a daily challenge with the sheer volume of data generated each day.
But what if you could stay notified whenever things change or break in your digital analytics, marketing automations, pixels, or campaigns on a daily basis at the beginning of your workday? That’s precisely what Trackingplan’s Daily Digest does.

Introducing Trackingplan’s Daily Digest
In a sentence, Trackingplan’s Daily Digest could be summarized as “all you need to know about the state of your data collection efforts at the beginning of your work day”.
As your data observability assistant, Trackingplan will send you an email or Slack on a daily basis with a general overview of the state of your data so your team can work on what they do best instead of having to find those errors by themselves.
That way, our Daily Digest offers a collaborative guide that connects teams throughout an organization, ensuring every member involved in the data collection process stays updated about any new or existing problem affecting the quality of your digital analytics in order to easily set priorities and address issues promptly based on them.
Inside Trackingplan’s Daily Digest
These are all the valuable insights you’ll quickly glean from just checking Trackingplan’s Daily Digest on a daily basis:
New problems detected
The first thing your daily digest will notify you of is any new problem that may have arisen in your digital analytics. Moreover, Trackingplan will also provide a brief description of the problem to help you identify the cause of the issue and see at a glance what exactly needs to be addressed. Trackingplan will also pinpoint which provider is causing the problem from all your analytics services (Segment, Google Analytics, Amplitude, etc.).
New events, properties, and user attributes detected
Trackingplan will also notify you about any new event, property, or user attribute discovered in your data layer. From then, Trackingplan will start monitoring it automatically, trying to identify patterns, detect anomalies, and automatically connect dots to create value from data that was hidden in plain sight.
Trackingplan’s Daily Digest will also remind you of any existing problem that hasn’t been addressed yet to ensure no critical problem goes unnoticed. As with new problems, Trackingplan will also provide you with a brief description of what is happening to help you identify the cause of the issue.
However, if there are warnings that are less important or you just don’t want to tackle them for the moment, you also have the option to mute your warnings to avoid them from appearing in your Daily Digests unless you unmute them again. This will allow you to focus only on those warnings that have a higher priority or are affecting a crucial funnel in your customer journey.
