Your web application provides a unified tracking code that lets you:
- Track page visits
- Track form submissions from your website and store them as contacts in your web application
- Track custom events
- Embed web messenger(chat widget) on your website
- Run conversion rate optimization experiments (after the add-on purchase)
Integrate the tracking code on your website

- Copy and paste the code snippet before the </head> tag of your web pages.
- Ensure the tracking code script is correctly added to your website. The highlighted text may change depending on your account's region, but it always includes fw-cdn.
Installing Web Messenger
- The web application, by default, displays the web messenger(chat widget) on all the pages where the code is integrated. To disable the chat widget, uncheck the below box.
- Once unchecked, the script will be generated with the parameter *chat=false* Use this script to integrate the code. If unchecked, simply add the parameter *chat=false* directly to the code, to disable the chat widget
- You can email this code to your developer directly from the web application.
- You can choose to include the jQuery library in the code. If you are building your own jQuery library, we recommend avoiding trimming it and use a version greater than 1.10.0.
- Once you’ve installed the code on your website, make sure that the code is properly integrated by verifying it in the box below.

Track Custom EventsThe web application can track custom events on your website like content downloads, abandoned carts, etc. These events include properties unique to every event captured. Events can then be used to create segments, marketing journeys, or view contact’s activities on the activity timeline.
