  • a default Campaign with this channel
  • a universal tracking script

Also once you've pressed Save on this tab you'll be automatically redirected to the Scripts tab.

After you save the Main tab settings, you will be redirected to the Scripts tab. Here you can already find a generated and ready-to-use universal tracking script;

  • Script tracking domain
  • Attribution setting
  • Attribution window

The rest of the fields in such scripts will remain unavailable. So in case you need to create a universal tracking script with editable fields and the opportunity to delete it later, you can do it manually by going to Tools-> Scripts-> New:
