Email Tracking

LAST EDIT Jan 26 2021

Users tend to engage with emails even when they aren't engaged with your app. Thus, it's important to track how they interact with your emails.

Tracking clicks in emails works via redirects. You can use our client libraries to generate a redirect link.

You can only create redirect links from your server-side application using one of Stream's API clients. Refer to our API documentation for more information on how to obtain the clients.

Example

Copied!

In the code above, when a user clicks the tracking URL, they are re-directed to the specified target URL. During the re-direct, Stream tracks the impressions and engagement events you specified.
