What is a Source?
A Source is the specific source of traffic. For example, if your company has an internal media buying team, the specific team would be a Source. If your company runs traffic through a 3rd party affiliate channel, each specific affiliate would be a Source.
How to Add a Source from the Channels drop-down
Hover over Channels, then hover over Sources, and select "Add Source". The Add Source wizard will display and walk you through the process.
How to Add a Source from the Channels Sub Tab
From the Channels sub tab, within the Channel grid, select the icon to the left of the Channel that needs a new Source. Click on the Add Source button in the top right corner. The Add Source wizard will display and walk you through the process.
Add a New Source Wizard
The Add Source wizard will ask for:
Name: This could be "Google" for search traffic, or the name of your specific Affiliate for affiliate sources, etc.
- Channel: The Source's channel. If your Source is within Search, Email or Video, a second dropdown will appear giving you the option of selecting a CAKE integration partner.
Status: Select Active, Inactive or Pending. Traffic cannot be run outside the active status.
Select Next, then Finish to create the Source card.
