To use Chartbeat, you need to install the Chartbeat JavaScript library on all of your website pages for it to load every time you have a visitor. This library tracks whenever the visitors are reading your content and how much time they spend on each page. In order to send more detailed information about a page such as the author’s name, category of the article on the page, etc. you need to install custom code snippets and have a more detailed understanding of how to use the Chartbeat library effectively.

With RudderStack’s Chartbeat integration, you can skip all this tedious work and get quick insights on your readers’ activities instantly.
