    Hi Haesh,

    Thank you for your interest. Current version(1.2.1) is not having any analytics. We are planning for an update with click tracking.

    Also note that the users will have the chat history in their Whatsapp. The Osclass admin will not be able to see that as per Whatsapp privacy policy.

    SiteSteroid Team
