Adding Google Analytics to Odoo v11 Website

We currently have an informative website at www.mycompany.com with Microsoft Clarity tracking.

We just started testing our odoo v11 website at store.mycompany.com/shop/ and wish to add Google Analytics {or Clarity} to track behavior.

So far Ive found confusing steps for this.  

1. For Clarity I just need to add an html code to the head tags of a website.  But I dont know how to do so for the odoo11 website because the html code is not visible as far as i know.

2. I found this article telling me to create a new google analytics project which has confused me quite a bit.  

  • A.  This article states I need to create a Google Analytics API account and then get a Analytics Key in the format UA-xxxxyyyy-z and just paste it into the field.  I created the Google Analytics API but when I go to Website Dashboard under Visits I read that I also needed a Client ID which I couldnt find. Somehow got to an Oauth part and got a long string of numbers and letters which is labeled as ClientID. Then I need to get a UA format ID but nothing like that appears in the Google Analytics API Dashboard.(https://console.developers.google.com/apis/credentials).But also, according to that article, I only need a UA format [https://www.odoo.com/documentation/user/11.0/website/optimize/google_analytics.html]


  • In this second article which but I think its the same thing. [https://www.odoo.com/documentation/user/11.0/website/optimize/google_analytics_dashboard.html]

  • Finally I realized that I do have UA formatted IDs from something called https://analytics.google.com/analytics where I have a main account.  That account has a UA-xxxxyyyy and under it I have a few properties with a format UA-xxxx-yyyy-Z.  I created a new one here as well for the store domain and it was different because it seems to be identified as a "stream"?  To make things worse, it has 3 different IDs, none with a UA- format.  The main one is a 9-digit numeric id, the second is a G-alphanumeric format id called a MEASUREMENT ID and the third is a 10-digit numeric id called a STREAM ID. 


So I seem to have a bunch of stuff created, but none that I can use on my website config.

Can someone please enligthen me as to how to get my store.mycompany.com/shop/ domain tracked by Google or Clarity?


Thanks in advance
