Segment-Podsights integration

Segment is an attribution platform that some Podsights partners work with for attribution.

Overview

Podsights has an integration with Segment that allows analytics from Segment to be delivered to Podsights to perform attribution between events and podcast impressions.

While Podsights is compatible with some third party systems, Podsights cannot provide technical support or troubleshooting for third-party software. 

Installation

To configure the Segment integration:

  1. In your Podsights dashboard (https://dash.podsights.com/), go to Manage > Your Pixels, and copy your Pixel ID.

  1. In your Segment dashboard, click Catalog.
  2. Search for “Podsights” in the Catalog, select it, and choose which of your sources to connect the destination to.
  3. Enter your Podsights Pixel ID that you previously copied in your Segment Settings UI.
  4. Back in your Podsights dashboard (https://dash.podsights.com/), go to Manage > Your Pixels, select your pixel and click the Event Mappings tab.
  5. In this tab, add a mapping for each of the mobile events that you configured in the previous steps. To do this:
    1. Click Add Mapping.
    2. Enter the original Event Name. NOTE: the original Event Name must be entered exactly as it appears from your mobile attribution partner including casing.
    3. Choose the Podsights Action Name that you would like to link to the original event.
    4. Click Save Event Mapping.
  6. You are now finished. After attribution, attributed events with the original event name will appear with the new action name in the pixel debugger and reports.
