Campaign setup Simplified

The Campaign Setup page was simplified.

  • Better grouping the fields
  • Easy to use interface

These are the current sections from the Campaign Setup page:

  • General Settings

Date Range control

  • All over the application we are using a new Date Range control which allows to select both a custom interval or a predefined interval (like: Yestarday, Past x days, Past month, etc.)

  • The old design with 2 date controls + a drowpdown list with values was replaced by this new date range control.

Search and Pagination for reports

  • All the data tables from CPV Lab Pro have now the option to easily search for a word + pagination. Now you can easily find your information + you can choose how you big you want your reports/tables to be.

Data table pagination

Multiselect dropdown controls with option to filter items

  • The new multiselect dropdown controls with option to filter items - makes it easier to find and select items in a long dropdown list
  • This feature is very useful when you define redirect profiles and you filter by part of the item (eq: when you create a redirect profile based on browser)

Microsoft (Bing) Ads Conversions Integration

  • Microsoft (Bing) Ads uses a JavaScript tracking pixel which cannot be fired unless placed directly in the Confirmation or Thank You page, unlike most traffic sources that use a Postback URL (Server-2-Server pixel) to receive conversion details,
  • In order to overcome this limitation and to be able to see your conversions in Microsoft (Bing) Ads even when using an Affiliate Network, CPV Lab Pro V 8.0 comes with an automatic process of uploading conversion data to Bing Ads, without using the Bing tracking pixel. Here are more details about Microsoft (Bing) Ads Conversions Integration

Cookieless Tracking optimized

The cookieless tracking method was optimized and the development on this method will continue.

Starting with V7.0, CPV Lab Pro has both cookie-based tracking and cookie-less tracking implemented and the switch between them is done automatically. Visitors that cannot be tracked with cookies will be tracked using the cookie-less method.

New tokens available

New tokens that can be passed in LP & Offer URLs:

  • {!cost!} - passes the cost of the click
  • {!tscode!} - passes the External ID (unique code from Traffic Source)
