Renaming the alve_analytics object

It is possible that you'd like to add the Analytics tracking code to your page, but the alve_analytics variable is already being used for something else. To deal with this, analytics.js provides a mechanism for renaming the global alve_analytics object.

The Analytics tracking snippet allows you to rename the global alve_analytics object by changing the final parameter passed to the minified function. You'll also need to update all invocations of the command queue from alve_analytics() to whatever name you choose.

(function(a,b,c,d,e,f,g){a['AlveAnalyticsObject']=e;a[e]= a[e] || function(){
  (a[e].q = a[e].q || []).push(arguments);};f=b.createElement(c);f.async=true;

custom_analytics_name('session', 'connect', 'SA-0001-0001');

Make sure to use the same method name to Ecommerce commands too.
