Get started tracking users on your website. Learn about Altocloud's tracking abilities and how you can customize tracking to meet your business needs.


Before you begin

Read about the type of data that Altocloud tracks and how to ensure you track customer data in a regulatory-compliant manner. Understand the implications of using ad blocking software. Finally, learn how the tracking snippet works and the types of tracking snippets available.

Deploy the tracking snippet

Copy the tracking snippet and, if necessary, customize how it works. Then review how to deploy it either by using a tag manager or by deploying it manually.

Customize web tracking

Use the Web tracking feature to specify the domains to track and configure web-related tracking settings, such as whether or not to exclude query parameters and track URL fragments.

Call the tracking snippet

After the tracking snippet is on your webpages, you must call it by doing either of the following

  • If you use the traditional snippet, call ac('init') to initialize the Journey JavaScript SDK.
  • If you use the SPA snippet, use ac('load') to load the autotrackUrlChange module and initialize the Journey JavaScript SDK.

After you initialize the Journey JavaScript SDK, Altocloud tracks pageview events when users arrive on your webpages.
