How would you track URLs that are not included in deliveries? but rather on a website.
So I am producing an export of data to be uploaded on a page and each one has a link, so I want to track this link. I thought maybe I can create a web tag and do something with the recipient ID in the workflow that is generating the extract.
Upon clicking on this link, isnt it supposed to redirect to my tag url http://www.google.com and track the click? also where are the tracking logs stored for this? (nmswebtrackinglog, nmswebtrackinglogeventhisto?)
Anyone has an idea of doing this as it isn't working for me.
I missed one small thing in my last answer you have to send this dummy delivery to a profile(create a recipient for tracking) and use that broadlog id for all tracking so it will give u an iBroadLogId.
these type of link only works when you have a broadlogId associated with them.
Web tracking is working fine, however, the feature that I was mainly looking for was redirection just like when an email click is opened, and this will only work if there is a iBroadLogId generated and in my case this will not be generated as I am not executing a delivery, hence this value is 0.
The only way I came up to perform redirection was to do it manually on my front end page, i.e. upon clicking a link/button, call neolane asynchronously to register the tracking access then redirect the user to the destination manually.
var url = "http://google.com" //**URL to be redirected after requesting below redirection link.**//
After some fiddling, I was able to gather some sort of tracking data through the [NmsTrackingLogRcp] table, I dynamically generated the link and passed through an identifier referenced in the recipient table and was able to match tracking recipients, however, no webtrackinglogs generated yet.
However, the functionality that I am looking for is to be able to access the link and be redirected to the source URL and this isn't working, the tracking pixel is loaded and thats it, a static page is displayed, im I missing something?
