Learn how to use Adobe Launch to customize and deploy the Altocloud tracking snippet.
Use Adobe Launch
When you use Adobe Launch to deploy the Altocloud tracking snippet, Altocloud always tracks standard customer journey events including pageviews and form entries. You can also use Adobe Launch's prebuilt extensions, rules, action, events, and conditions to track additional events that are specific to your webpage and business needs.
For complete information on how to use Adobe Launch, see Adobe's Launch User Guide.
An extension is a collection of components (triggers, conditions, tags) that track events on a website. By default the Core Extension is enabled with Adobe Launch. This article describes how to integrate Adobe Launch using only elements from the Core Extension.
If necessary, you can install other extensions from the catalog.
For example, there are extensions for Facebook Pixel, and Google Analytics.
For more information on the Launch extensions by Adobe solutions, see Adobe Extensions.
