Are link clicks trackable if they contain an AmpScript field in them? (within Journey Builder)

Currently have a URL that looks like this:

When I look at the engagement split and select 'clicks', it doesn't show any of the links that contain AmpScript.

  • Also I dont think you are calling the %%SL_Store_ID%% value properly. You should use %%=v(SL_Store_ID)=%%

  • Good catch @Data_Kid Jun 20, 2017 at 22:24
  • My bad you would have to use the concat Ampscript function to piece them together.

  • Basically this: <teamlocker.squadlocker.com/#/lockers/…> Jun 20, 2017 at 22:29
  • I meant the url string and the Ampscript variable.

Short Answer : Yes

Explanation: Links with ampscript do not show up on the click activity report. To overcome this, you would either have to use alias tags or the ImpressionRegion Ampscript (See Begin Impression Region & End Impression Region function to make these available in your click activity report.

In addition to this, I would advise you place add a redirectTo and a Concat around it like this:

  • Without the Begin/End Impression Regions, would that mean that the Flow Control - Engagement Split would not work? Making it appear that no one has clicked any link with AmpScript in it? @data-kid Jun 20, 2017 at 22:19

    It would work but not show up in reporting

IF your URL will be


Use the Ampscript in the Email:

    SET @URL1 = "https://www.google.com/conen-AU??email="

    SET @Contact_Value = [Contact_Value]

    SET @CustomerID = [CustomerID]

    SET @Final_URL = Concat(@URL1,@Contact_Value,'&cid=',@CustomerID,'&al=Y&token_required&title=What%20you%20need%20to%20know%20about%20patients%20with%20Type%202%20Diabetes%20and%20established%20CVD&url=https://www.google.com.au/callback/036?isUpnext=false&playlist=false&q=812e2354-ed4f-4f5d-a184-d85315ea04cc&series=false&utm_source=google&utm_medium=Mass%20E-mail&utm_campaign=PLY%20James-%5BAU-TR-NA-NA-VI-LO-EN-2021%5D')
