Each section will outline the significant user events that should trigger various scripts. Function and variable definitions are also outlined in each section.


Data Keys

To support your automated campaigns, we pull data from both the website integration and the file/API data feed. Please ensure that the keys used in the website integration match the keys in the data feed.

Table

Key

Product

SKU

Order

Order Number

Order Item

Order Number

Customer

Email Address

For example, the order numbers used in the Conversion Tracking component need to match the order number sent in the data feed.


Framework & ltkAsyncListener

All Listrak JavaScript code is dependent on our framework. Use the following script and your unique Merchant ID to load our framework.

To promote faster page loading, we recommend placing this script at the bottom of your HTML body or loading it last if you are using a tag manager.

Framework

<!-- Listrak Analytics - Javascript Framework -->
<script type="text/javascript">
(function (d, tid, vid) {
if (typeof _ltk != 'undefined') return; var js = d.createElement('script'); js.id = 'ltkSDK';
js.src = "https://cdn.listrakbi.com/scripts/script.js?m=" + tid + "&v=" + vid;
d.querySelector('head').appendChild(js);
})(document, 'merchantID', '1');
</script>

Ensure that you replace 'MERCHANTID' with your unique Merchant ID.

Executing component scripts before loading the Listrak framework will result in an error. To prevent this, wrapping your scripts or tags with the following script wrapper will ensure that our framework has finished loading before the code executes and still allows you to place the framework towards the bottom of your page or load it last/later in a tag manager.

ltkAsyncListener

(function(d){if(typeof _ltk=="undefined"){if(document.addEventListener)document.addEventListener("ltkAsyncListener",function(){_ltk_util.ready(d)});else{e=document.documentElement;e.ltkAsyncProperty=0;e.attachEvent("onpropertychange",function(e){if(e.propertyName=="ltkAsyncProperty"){_ltk_util.ready(d)}})}}else{_ltk_util.ready(d)}})(function(){
/********** Begin Custom Code **********/
/********** End Custom Code ************/
});

For example, executing Cart Abandonment may look like this.

(function(d){if(typeof _ltk=="undefined"){if(document.addEventListener)document.addEventListener("ltkAsyncListener",function(){_ltk_util.ready(d)});else{e=document.documentElement;e.ltkAsyncProperty=0;e.attachEvent("onpropertychange",function(e){if(e.propertyName=="ltkAsyncProperty"){_ltk_util.ready(d)}})}}else{_ltk_util.ready(d)}})(function(){
/********** Begin Custom Code **********/

_ltk.SCA.AddItemWithLinks('abc-xs', 1, '5.99', 'Crew Neck Tee', '/media/crewnecktee.jpg', '/crew-neck-tee');
_ltk.SCA.AddItemWithLinks('abc-m', 1, '5.99', 'Crew Neck Tee', '/media/crewnecktee.jpg', '/crew-neck-tee');

_ltk.SCA.Submit();

/********** End Custom Code ************/
});

Email Capture

Email Capture is used to attach an email address to the onsite activity being tracked by the other components.

It is important to understand the difference between Email Capture and Subscription Points.

Email Capture

Subscription Points

Used to attach an email address to website activity such as product browsing and cart activity for abandonment emails.

Used to subscribe users who opt into receiving general marketing emails to your primary marketing list.

Integrated with the ltk.SCA object.

Integrated with either the _ltk.Signup object or our Email REST API.

Significant Events

📍 Entering an Email Address

Any time a user enters their email address (logging in, signing up for marketing emails, filling out a support form), capture it for use in automated solutions.

In cases where the user may be inputting someone else's email address such as a "refer-a-friend" form, do not capture the email.

The following function accepts an element ID or Name and will attach an event listener to the element.

_ltk.SCA.CaptureEmail(elementIdOrName);

If you want to use your own event listener or already have one in place, you can use the following function to set the data manually.

_ltk.SCA.Update("email", emailAddress);

Function and Variable Definitions

CaptureEmail()

The CaptureEmail() function attaches an event listener to the specified input element.

_ltk.SCA.CaptureEmail(elementIdOrName);

This function is only necessary when integrating single-page applications in which the framework is not loaded on each new page.

_ltk.Activity.AddPageBrowse(url); //Passing the URL is not necessary as our function will pull the URL from the page but it may be included if needed.
