Post-Install Event Setup Process

 

BEST PRACTICES: Google strongly suggests that marketers enable any and all post-install events which are being being tracked by Kochava. Any event that is configured will send ‘All’ occurrences of the event to Google.

 

BEST PRACTICES: Google strongly suggests the instrumentation of post-install events to track sessions as well as ‘deeplink’ events.

 

Post-install events sent to Google must be designated with the corresponding Google App Event Type using the drop down menu within the Partner Configuration UI. Google has eight event types to select:

  • Custom
  • Session Start
  • In_App Purchase
  • View Item List
  • View Item
  • View Search Results
  • Add to Cart
  • eCommerce Purchase

 

NOTE: The ‘Custom’ event may be used for any post-install events that do not correspond to one of Google’s pre-defined App Event Types.

 

  1. Select App Tools>Partner Configuration.
  2.  

     

  3. Using the Live Search locate the Google Adwords postback configuration.
  4. Select Google Adwords>Network Tools>Postbacks.
  5.  

     

  6. Locate the desired post-install event.
  7. Click Postback Tools>Edit.
  8.  

     

  9. Select the App Event Type.
  10. If using the Custom Event Type, Enter an Event Name. (optional)
  11. Select Platform Attribution>Enabled. (default setting)
  12.  

    NOTE: If Platform Attribution is disabled, the corresponding post-install event will not respect the claims that Google makes for this specific event.

     

    NOTE: If using the ‘Custom’ event designation and the Event Name field is left blank, the Event as called out within the Kochava UI will be passed to Google by default. If an event name is entered, that customer defined name will be passed to Google instead.

     

  13. Enter the Kenshoo Customer ID. (optional)
  14. Enter the Septini iOS Customer ID. (optional)
  15. Enter the YouTube Customer ID. (optional)
  16.  

    NOTE: The default setting for Delivery Method is set to All and cannot be modified.

     

  17. Click Save.
