Apply Track Settings

You can access a lot of customization options through track settings. Each individual content track has its own settings you can change, which override any platform-wide defaults.

To access track settings, navigate to Campaign Tools, choose the track type, and then select the track you wish to customize. The track settings appear in the left sidebar.

Customize the URL

The URL Slug is the customizable part of your Track’s URL. A URL Slug is automatically generated when you create a new track, but you have the ability to change it to whatever you want!
URL Slugs can help improve SEO, so make it something relevant to your content track.

Note
Changing the URL Slug in Track Settings affects the URL of the entire track. If you want to customize the URL slug of a content asset you can do so in the Content Library.

Search Engine Directive

The Search Engine Directive option allows you to choose how to direct search engine crawlers when they hit your content track. When creating new tracks, they will adopt the default settings you specify in Organization Settings > Search Engine Directive.

You can edit individual tracks to change the default setting.

Warning
The tag doesn’t apply immediately. Your content track will need to be re-indexed by a search engine for the change to take effect.

Track ID

The Track ID is a unique ID which is automatically generated when you create a content track. You cannot change the Track ID.

If you’d like to customize the ID for the track, you can add an External ID.

This ID can be used for advanced use cases which align with your organizational needs.


External ID

External IDs are non-unique identifiers that can be added to content tracks. You can use this free text field to tag tracks according to your external systems, or even to group tracks by using the same ID.

Note
For more information on using External IDs, see this article.
