To update the the default Rockerbox tracking parameters in Impact, you will need to update the Gateway Tracking Settings in Impact.


Gateway Tracking Settings in Impact

The Gateway Tracking Settings page allows you to specify what happens when a customer clicks on one of your Media Partner or Media Source tracking links.

  • Ensure the Automatically append querystring parameters to all landing pages for Partners is enabled

Save Your Report

On the report's screen, modify view settings to your desired preferences:

  • select YESTERDAY in the date filter, so the report can pull previous day data.
  • Under Show filter Select AD
  • Click the magnifying glass button to apply the filters

  • Select Schedule Delivery, then use the dropdown to select Daily
  • Use the dropdown to select CSV file format of the report

Double-check your Delivery Method settings before Saving

If you enter the incorrect SFTP settings, Impact may reject the report and you will need to recreate it from the beginning.
