    Do I need to have an account on Google Analytics and Matomo to use this plugin?

    Thank you!

    I installed the plugin and before that, on Google Tag Manager, I created an account, a tag and everything. On GTM, I was provided with 2 snippets. I cannot paste them here nor I can paste a screenshot, but you can see the whole discussion here: https://moodle.org/mod/forum/discuss.php?d=391550#p1578278.
    My problem is that I have no idea about where, in the Moodle file system, I have to put them.
    Could you help me?
    Notes: I am not a tech; I am trying to analyze the traffic on my Moodle instance, which is version 3.5.8. URL: https://ital2.org/m/course/view.php?id=5. It is free access for guests, without login.
