Without Adobe Analytics extension, can we track download file?

Avatar

Level 5

Dear All,

We need to track all downloads that are offered on those press pages (PDFs, JPGs, PNGs, etc.).

But the Adobe analytics extension is disabled(PFA screenshot below).

But they said that We don’t use Adobe Analytics extension. We use Launch directly because we have a data layer configuration, please do all the custom analytics using Adobe launch and data layer configuration but Adobe extension is not a standard and in case of any issue with Adobe analytics extension we can’t manage it.

In addition to the above we use a custom appmeasurement file but Adobe analytics extension use a default appmeasurement file which means many custom analytics will not work and the website analytics will have a ton of issues, so that I strongly advise to flow the standards.

 

Unfortunately, I don't know how to use the custom analytics using Adobe Launch without Adobe Analytics extension. Could you please help. Thank you.

@kamlesh-maddheshiya For Tracking Downloads without AA Extension you have to configure the Download Tracking Variables Manually. Below are the Variables 
s.trackDownloadLinks = true; // This will enable download tracking

s.linkDownloadFileTypes = "doc,docx,eps,jpg,png,svg,xls,ppt,pptx,pdf,xlsx,tab,csv,zip,txt,vsd,vxd,xml,js,css,rar,exe,wma,mov,avi,wmv,mp3,wav,m4v"; // to define what are all file types we want to track.
