Dear people,

 

What we would like to do, is track visitors that come to our website and consequently visit our online applications.

We have set up different property's for our website and online applications.

 

How could we mange to view an originating referral that has completed a goal in one of our webapplications?

 

Thank you vry much,

Hi Robert,

Unfortunately you cannot track across the domains using different properties. You need to use a single property and set up cross domain tracking like described in the article below:

Let me know if you have questions.

Hi Arnold,

Thank you very much for your answer.
The domains are all inside the boip.int domain, in different subdomains, like filing.boip.int.
Would that make any difference?

Thank you,
Robert

Hi Robert,

You don't need to set up cross domain tracking for subdomains but you still need to use the same property if you want to track referrals across them. Let me know if you have more questions.

Hi Arnold,

That means that we need to reconsider our Analytics tracking-approach completely.

Thank you very much for your feedback and information.
