The Integration settings provides options around the Tracking URL to use and data sources to receive performance data from.
Options selected here will carry into campaigns you create going forward. They can be changed within individual campaigns as needed.
Tracking URL Patterns
Tracking URLs can be defined to meet the requirements of your agency or client for any platform.
Choose from the menu which Tracking URL Pattern to use for campaigns created under this Advertiser.
By default, you will have 1 option - Bionic Default Pattern. Instructions for creating additional customized patterns can be found here.
Once selected, the Tracking URL will automatically generate using the specified format upon entering your Landing Page URL within the media plan.
In order to incorporate performance results into your plan, you must identify which integrations you want to include data from. Each integration represents a connection (whether manual or automatic) for a particular data source.
At the Advertiser level, it is best to select the integrations mostly commonly used by this Advertiser. You can always add/remove integrations within individual campaigns.
To add integrations, click on the Select Integrations button.
From the list, choose the integration(s) you want to add.
If the integration you need is not in the list, click the "Create a new Integration" link and follow the instructions found here <link>.
