Tapsense is a special network partner.

Special partners can use additional and extended data from adjust, and have been integrated with a custom module in adjust's backend. This guide describes how to activate the Tapsense module, as well as additional set up that may be required or beneficial.

To integrate Tapsense with adjust, follow these steps:

  1. Activate the module by adding one or more tokens in the Tapsense panel in your dashboard.
  2. Optionally, add event labels to your in-app events in your Tapsense panel to send in-app events to Tapsense.
  3. Create a tracker for Tapsense, adding certain mandatory parameters, and use this as the destination of your ads.
  4. All set - adjust will transmit the requisite data to Tapsense.

1Activating the Tapsense module

All settings related to Tapsense can be found in your dashboard. Simply open your app settings and follow through to Partner Setup > Add Partners > Tapsense.

To activate the integration, enter your Tapsense Advertiser ID within this panel. You can find the required values in your Tapsense dashboard.

Once activated, adjust will automatically start sending install and (when activated) event callbacks to Tapsense.

1.1Forwarding events & revenue to Tapsense

You can also choose to transmit in-app events to Tapsense. Each in-app event can be activated separately, so as to give you complete control of the data that you're sharing with your partners.

  1. Open the Tapsense panel in your app settings.
  2. Select Event Linking and enter the for each event you want to transmit to Tapsense. You also have the option use the same token for multiple events. If you do decide on doing this, it will result in those events displaying as a single event type in the Tapsense interface.
  3. If you also want to send associated revenues to Tapsense, you can activate Revenue Forwarding by flicking the corresponding switch above to "ON". To forward revenues, you have to activate event forwarding for at least one of your revenue events.
  4. As soon as you save these updated settings, adjust will start transmitting the in-app events that you have configured.

Tapsense automatically get all in-app events, when you activate the module. This means that you do not need to enter event labels. The names that you use in adjust will be automatically transmitted to Tapsense.
