As an ALL-Installs network, Sizmek prefers to receive postbacks for all new installs of your app from ANY source, including organic. To do so, select Events attributed to any partner to send all install postbacks to Sizmek.
Sizmek connects with AppsFlyer via a unique Postback Tag ID. If you don't already have the Postback Tag ID, you must obtain it from Sizmek to continue with the integration.
Enable View-Through attribution
Toggle this to ON if you want to attribute view-through installs from Sizmek. The view-through lookback slider is available on the attribution link tab (described below).
Send automatic postbacks to Sizmek following user installs and re-engagements. Use this section to define the source of the users that allow sending these postbacks.
Select Only events attributed to this partner for events coming only from users attributed to Sizmek.
Select Events attributed to any partner or organic to have your entire user base available to be reported to Sizmek.
