Hi everyone, 

 

I am trying to figure out why after I tag my campaigns url and then create a link to shorten..it doesn't carry along the count down clock for the webpage? 

 

Any information would be helpful.

 

Thank you!

Gday :-)

I've noticed the first url already has a parameter appended LI_invite_PM2
however the 2nd url does not include this parameter
The following test seems to work fine if the missing parameter gets included on the very end

Hi :-)
Not sure i am understanding what you mean by count down clock for the webpage?

Are you able to give an example of the tagged url you have created and a link to the page in question

Hey everyone,

 

I have been tagging my campaign urls through URL builder and everything works..except when I test my new link..it doesn't carry along the original timer that we had on our original campaign URL before it was tagged..I am wondering how do I keep the clock during the transition of tagging my campaigns URL..

 

Thank you!

Hi :-)
As per my previous reply, I'm not understanding what is meant by "original timer" on the original campur url prior to tagging.

Are you able to please give an example of the original url and the desired end result..

Hi! Sorry Bronwyn for the delay,

This is our original link to the campaign: http://goo.gl/ETiuqI
When I made a new link using URL builder to tag my campaign..
The link comes out like this (with no timer/time clock): http://goo.gl/ewQ9Fh

I would like to keep the timer in there..

I'm sorry to bother you again,

But I tried it with my links and it doesn't seem to bring the clock...did you use URL builder to create the link?

I've just tested with your url.. not the shortened one but the full url and appended &LI_invite_PM2 to the very end after all your parameters
