Individual trackable links for your publications

Learn what individual trackable links are and how to add them to your publications to access individual statistics

An individual trackable link is a unique link that you can create for your published content, whether it is public or unlisted. This feature lets you share the same publication with different prospects or audiences using separate links. Individual trackable links are great for measuring statistics, as they allow you to see how the same publication performs with different audiences.

Check out this video to see how easy it is to create individual trackable links for your flipbook. 

In Flipsnack, you can create 1, 2, 3, or more trackable links for each flipbook. You can then send them to particular customers or audiences to track their individual interactions with the flipbook.

Note: This feature is available for the Professional plan, Business plan, the Organization plan, and Enterprise ($4260 yearly) plans.

The number of individual trackable links you can add is related to your subscription: 

  • Professional plan: 50 links/workspace
  • Business plan: 200 links/workspace
  • Enterprise plan: 2000 links/workspace

Let’s see exactly how they work and how you can add them to your publications.

Manage individual trackable links

Access trackable links

From the main dashboard, right-click on the publication you want to add individual trackable links to, and then click on Trackable Links. It’s important to note that your flipbook must be published before you can add trackable links.


Alternatively, from the same page, click on Details, and then on the left-side menu, click on Trackable Links. 

Create and edit trackable links

To create a trackable link you must click on Create trackable link, add a Name, and click Create Link

To personalize the trackable link to make it easier to identify, click on the Edit icon under Actions, and under Link add the personalized URL, and then click Save.

Important: If you modify a trackable link after sending it to your audience, you must resend the updated link since the old one will result in a 404 error.


Note: You can create different trackable links for the same flipbook as many times as you need by clicking again on the Create trackable link button.

The publications that already have a trackable link added will have a special icon displayed in the main dashboard, under the creation date, next to the visibility icon. Clicking on the icon will take you to flipbook's Trackable Links page.

Once you create your trackable links, you can set up to get notifications when they are first opened or if they are not opened until a specific date. Let’s see how:

  1. To set up notifications, click on the Edit icon (the pencil icon) under Actionsedit-a-trackable-link-icon
  2. Check the First open box to get a notification when someone opens that trackable link and starts interacting with it. first-open-option-notification-checked
  3. You can also select to get a notification if the trackable link is not opened until a certain date. All you have to do is select If not open by and choose the date. Click save and that’s it.if-not-open-by-notification-checked

Note: If the trackable link is not opened in the first 30 days after it has been sent to your audience or customer, the notification you have set will become inactive, and you will have to activate it again using the same process described above.

The notifications work very easily. Once your trackable link is accessed by your intended audience or customer, we capture the initial interaction and promptly send you a notification to your email within minutes. The email will inform you what trackable link has been opened (you will know who opened the link based on the name you gave it when you first created it), and it will also include the statistics page associated with that link.notification-email-for-trackable-links

If you notice a mistake in your flipbook, you can easily edit it and correct the mistake. You can then resend the same trackable link to your audience and opt to be notified again when the link is opened using the same process described above.

Note: Whenever you modify your trackable links, you can choose whether to receive notifications or not. If you select either option—first open or If not open—our notification system will reset. This means that if your customers open the link again, you will receive a notification. However, if you deselect either option, you will not be notified when the link is opened, or if it remains unopened by a certain date.

Delete trackable links

If you want to delete a trackable link you have created, all you have to do is click on Delete. This action will disable the link and its individual statistics, but its stats will be kept in the overall direct link statistics. You can also select multiple links to delete all at once.delete-trackable-link-icon

If you have multiple trackable links, you can sort them by Create date, and you can search them by name in the right-side box (Search by name). Once you find the link you were looking for, just copy it and send it to your audience.

Check stats on your trackable links

To check statistics for each of the trackable links you’ve added, go to the Trackable links page, click on the statistics icon, of the link you want to analyze. The stats icon is near the trash icon, which you can use to delete the trackable link. 


Alternatively, on the Details page in the main dashboard, click on Statistics in the left-side menu. Here, you can see all the stats for your publication, but you can also see statistics for each individual trackable link by selecting it from the dropdown menu, next to the dates dropdown menu.
