How do I upload Custom Clicks via CSV?

There are times when you know a click should be recorded in your Wicked account, yet for some reason, Wicked didn't record it. You are able to record this click with an HTTP Post. Here are some examples for why you may have a click and Wicked does not:

  1. You go to a marketing event and collect new leads and import them into your CRM.  After importing these leads to your CRM, you can set the First Optin Attribution for them.
  2. You purchased and email list and import all the contacts into your CRM.  After importing these leads to your CRM, you can set the First Optin Attribution for them.
  3. You signed up for Wicked Reports and have a number of contacts who already exist and you know exactly where you found those leads.  You can set the First Optin Attribution for them.
  4. You want to track future funnel steps back to the original source of the contact. 
    1. Example:  Your funnel brings in new leads through Facebook.  After a number of steps in your funnel, your contacts need to book a call with your team and you want to be able to see how many Calls were booked from these Facebook Ads.  You can create "Re-Optins" for the original First Optin of the contact.  In this scenario the Re-Optin count for the Facebook Ad would be a good indicator of Calls that were booked later.
  5. You received orders from a source and did not have tracking on the links or there was simply no click to track.  You can set the Last Click Attribution for a customer's MOST RECENT order.

You can learn more about the different types of custom conversions in this help doc.

You can upload custom clicks via the Clicks Uploader in the API & Uploaders menu.

Clicks must be uploaded in a valid CSV Format with the following columns.

    CSV Template

    Here is the template you can use to enter your custom clicks and then upload via the tool:

    [CLICK HERE TO DOWNLOAD TEMPLATE]

    When you open the screen, you will see two tabs (see image above)

    Upload New Clicks:  You can drag and drop (or select) the .csv order file you want to upload

    Upload Attempt History:  You can see all the upload attempts you've made (successful and failed)

    On the Upload New Clicks tab, you will see a drop area where you can drop a .csv file (or click and select the file). Once dropped (or selected), Wicked Reports will attempt to validate all the clicks in the file.

    • If NO errors are found, you will see all the clicks that were uploaded.
    • If any errors are found, you will receive a message with the count of orders that have errors.  You will be able to continue uploading the valid orders and ignore the invalid ones.

    If you select "Yes", you will be shown the clicks to see which ones had errors. You will then be able to "Submit" the good clicks and ignore the bad ones.

    If you select "No", you will be taken back to the previous screen where you can select the file to upload.

    What is Wicked Reports Validating In The Clicks?

    Each order must have an Email Address

    Each order must use a valid Timezone

    Each order must have a Conversion Type

    **NOTE: Uploaded Clicks are processed daily, like all other clicks and will be reflected in your reports the following day

    How do I view the clicks that I have already uploaded?

    You can click on the tab, Upload Attempt History to see all of your uploads.

    If you hover over a row, an option to view the row will be available. If you click on that, you can see all of the clicks for that individual upload. You can see which clicks failed and which clicks were successful. Hovering over one that failed will tell you why it failed to upload.
