Mobile app conversion tracking with third-party tools

Link your apps with third-party app attribution tools to track conversions in mobile apps, such as installs and in-app actions. You can view reports about your conversions from your third-party service, or directly from Campaign Manager 360 and Display & Video 360.

This article will guide you on configuring  an App Attribution Partner, such as Adjust, Appsflyer, Branch, Kochava, or Singular. View the legacy third-party conversion tracking article for other services in Campaign Manager 360.

Link to a third-party service

You can use link IDs to link third-party services with Floodlight activities. Refer to your App Attribution Partner’s documentation to complete this process.

Limitations

  • In Display & Video 360, you can’t immediately use new Floodlight activities for remarketing list creation and assignment to Line Items. This delay can take up to a day.

  • To add an app attribution link, the app must be hosted in Google Play or Apple iTunes.

  • If you have enabled enhanced attribution, we will use click IDs from conversions for attribution.
