How do I install Simpo?

Updated 1 month ago by Max Smith-Gee


You can deploy Simpo to your users in one of two ways:

  1. Via the Simpo code snippet (see below)
  2. Via the Simpo Browser Extension
The preliminary installation of Simpo is the only thing you will ever need a developer (or IT) for.

Everything from that point on will be visual and require no technical expertise.

Considerations


We recommend method #1 if you have control over the code-base (for example, an application you built in-house).

We recommend mass-deployment via the Simpo browser extension (e.g. Google Chrome Extension) if you're installing Simpo on a work application you do not have access to the codebase of (e.g. Salesforce, Workday, etc...).

Once you have installed Simpo, it will load after your application finishes loading and thus this will not affect your site load-time.

Installation


Method 1: Installing Simpo with a code snippet:

Simply have one of your developers add the following snippet of code right above the closing </body> tag on all the pages you want Simpo on. Please be sure to have simpo.load("Your UCID") at the end

When you are installing Simpo, it is smart to think about passing in parameters such as User IDs, User Details, or any parameters. In order to do this, you can learn more here.

If you're passing in user configuration via a call simpo.configure({ ... }), you'll need to do so above the simpo.load("YOUR_UCID").

More information about configuration-specific user params is available right here.
!function(){var r=window.simpo=window.simpo||[];if(!r.initialize&&!r.invoked){r.invoked=!0,r.methods=["configure","identify","reset","ready","debug","off","on"],r.generator=function(t){return function(){var e=Array.prototype.slice.call(arguments);return e.unshift(t),r.push(e),r}};for(var e=0;e<r.methods.length;e++){var t=r.methods[e];r[t]=r.generator(t)}r.load=function(e){var t=document.createElement("script");t.type="text/javascript",t.async=!0,t.src="https://cdn.simpo.io/simpo.js",r.ucid=e;var n=document.getElementsByTagName("script")[0];n.parentNode.insertBefore(t,n)},r.SNIPPET_VERSION="2.0.0"}}();;

/* any call to simpo.configure goes here */

simpo.load("YOUR_UCID");
You can find your UCID (Unique Customer ID) at the bottom of the configuration page of the Simpo dashboard.
Method 2: Installing Simpo with a browser extension:

You can also deploy Simpo to your users throughout the organization by using mass deployment with our Simpo Chrome Extension (or an extension for another approved for use in your organization). To do so, please contact us at support@simpo.com and we'll gladly assist.
