With a push of a button you can send your Branch data to your AppMetrica dashboard, helping you segment users and understand the power of Branch links in acquiring users.
What events does Branch send to AppMetrica?¶
Branch will send all Branch link clicks to AppMetrica. Branch also sends all the data that is attached to the link. AppMetrica then matches all downstream actions (installs, opens, custom events, payouts) back to the referring link. This will allow you to analyze which campaigns, channels, etc. are helping you acquire and engage users. You can see the list of fields that we send to AppMetrica here.
What does it look like?¶
