FAQs

Can I enable conversion tracking on multiple elements in a single campaign?

Yes, however, we do not recommend this approach for the following reasons:

  • Only the first element selected is counted as a conversion; and
  • All conversions are grouped into a single count, it is not possible to identify a specific count on each separate element that has conversion tracking enabled.

If you are configuring a multi-step campaign, we recommend you enable conversion tracking only on the actionable element in the campaign.

The Track Clicks option isn’t available for my image block, why not?

Be sure you’ve entered the URL into the Link field. If that field is empty, no link is actively applied to the image and the additional link options will not appear.

Once you’ve entered a valid URL into the Link field this option will be available.
