Hey guys,

 

I've had a look at the correct page (I believe..) but it doesn't seem to be possible to track operating system via a value track parameter.

 

Can anyone confirm please?

Many thanks

 Hi, Grég. You're right. ValueTrack can't do that. But the server side language used to serve your pages should be able to do that. I mean it should be able to redirect an URL such as

http://example.com/test.url?param1=test1&param2=test2&gclid=something to

http://example.com/test.url?param1=test1&param2=test2&gclid=something&os=detectedOS

 

So it won't be AdWords that does the detection but your application / server.

 

Hope it helps.

LE: Talk to whomever administers your website / server and tell them what you need.
