Post-Install Event Creation and Configuration

Kochava’s Post-Install Event Configuration UI (User Interface) allows the management of events being sent to Kochava. Included are Post-Install Events and associated segmentation data, as well as events that need to be remapped in order to meet Network-Specific Event Postback requirements.


Use Cases for Post-Install Events:

  • Gather in-app purchase information that can be used for LTV (Lifetime Value) calculation.
  • Create a JSON formatted string in which several data points can be tracked.
  • Pass any piece of information to be paired with an event title.

  1. Log in to Kochava.
  2. Locate the desired app.
