How to create Info Fields?

There are cases when you need to add some additional information on a URL, but it doesn’t become part of the tracking part. For example, you may want to keep track of Ad name for a given URL. You can do this by using Info Fields in Terminus.

You can define info fields in Terminus as follows:

1. Go to Info Fields page

While in your project, navigate to Tools > Info Fields

2. Click Create a new Info Field

3. Define your info field

  1. Enter a name for your info field
  2. Specify if this is required to be specified for each URL
  3. Write some notes that help you remember what this parameter is about
  4. Click Save.

After you click save, your info field is ready to be used in URL builder.

3.1 (Optional) Generated info field

Sometimes you need an info field with value generated automatically from other UTM or Custom parameters. You can do that as follows:

  1. In addition to the above steps, check Generated checkbox
  2. Define an expression to be evaluated dynamically.
  3. Click Save.

Expression:

You can use UTM or custom parameters as follows:

UTM parameters:
{{utm.campaign}}
{{utm.medium}}
{{utm.source}}
{{utm.content}}
{{utm.term}}
Custom parameters: 
{{custom.<any custom parameter defined in the project>}}

For example, you can create something like this.

{{utm.campaign}}-{{utm.medium}}-{{utm.source}}-{{custom.affiliate}}

which may generate the following Ad name for a URL

promotion-cpc-google-acme

4. Specify Info Field when building tracking URLs

After you create your info field, it will be visible in the URL builders as another dropdown field.

NOTE: If it is set to be generated from an expression, a dropdown will not be available. In that case, the value will be automatically generated when the URL is created.
