Account Settings

  The Settings page for your account includes several helpful sections, including:

API Test Tool

The API Test Tool in My Sailthru allows you to send live API calls to any of our endpoints using simple JSON Format.

My Info

Allows you to set and change user-specific settings like phone number and password.

Business Settings

Allows you to set and change account-specific settings.

  • Time Zone – Sets the account-level time zone for scheduling and reporting purposes.
  • Engagement Days – Defines how long a new user will remain new, and how long an engaged user will stay engaged after their last action (open, click, etc). More details about user engagement and how it is calculated can be found here. Default: 7 days.
  • Revenue per 1k Pageviews - If you sell ads against pageviews, enter a number, in dollars, for the revenue you typically earn from one thousand pageviews (also known as RPM or CPM). This number will be used to calculate revenue from pageviews generated by your email campaigns.

Channels – Email

Allows you to set and change campaign-specific settings.

  • Message Cookie Duration – The number of hours to set the sailthru_bid cookie for, which identifies the message that a user most recently opened or clicked. This is the maximum number of hours that can elapse after a user clicks on an email where revenue will still be attributed to that email.
  • Beacon Image – This image will be included in each of your emails in order to track email opens. More details on beacon images here.
  • Seed Emails – Set email addresses to be included on every outgoing email campaign. Max of 100 emails. Note that on each campaign, you can also add additional seed emails specific to that campaign.
  • Link Reporting Query Parameters – If you utilize any query string parameters that should be retained in URLs for reporting in Sailthru’s campaign detail report, include those parameters in this field, one per line. Examples may include unique page IDs (?id=12345), placement (?location=header) or other values that do not vary per user.
  • Error URL - The URL of the page that users will be redirected to if there’s an error following links from one of your emails. You probably want to build a user-friendly page on your own site, or maybe just set it to your homepage. If you leave this blank, users will be sent to your homepage.

Channels – Mobile Apps

Allows clients to add apps for use in Push Notification Campaigns.

Content – Spider

Allows you to set and change settings for Sailthru’s content spider.

  • Include / Exclude Rules – Learn more about include / exclude rules in our Personalization Engine documentation.
  • Spider Extra Meta Tags – If you have special meta tags that you want collected, list them here, one per line. Learn more about how to add extra meta tags here.
  • Spiderable Query Params - If your pages use query parameters instead of perma-links, add the parameters you use to identify your pages here (one parameter per line).
  • Preserve Fragment - If your pages use fragments or the ‘#’ character to identify your pages, check this box. For example, http://www.example.com/page#sample
  • Trailing Slash – Choose to automatically add or remove the trailing slash from the URLs that come in from the content spider, or choose not to modify.

Content – Concierge

Allows you to set and change settings for Sailthru’s Concierge slider.

  • Hours Back – The number of hours back in time to pull content from. For example, if you enter 24, Concierge will only include content from the past 24 hours in its recommendations.

Setup – API & Postbacks

Allows you to set and change settings related to the API.

  • API Key & Secret – The number of hours back in time to pull content from. For example, if you enter 24, Concierge will only include content from the past 24 hours in its recommendations.
  • Allowed IPs – Allows you to set which IPs are allowed to access your API key and secret for posting, getting, and deleting content and data.
  • Optout Postback URL – The heading line of the recommendation slider (e.g. “Recommended For You”)
  • Hardbounce Postback URL –  If this field is filled out, we will send an HTTP POST to this URL whenever you send to a hardbounce. You can use this information to alert the user that their email address is not receiving emails. For more information, see the documentation on postbacks.

Setup – Domains

  • Link Domain – Use if you want rewritten links in emails to point to your subdomain, e.g. link.test.com. You will have to set a CNAME record on your DNS to point that subdomain to cb.sailthru.com.
  • Horizon Domain – Required for Horizon. If you’re not using Horizon, you don’t need to worry about this. If you are, you must set a CNAME record on your DNS zonefile to point this subdomain to horizon.sailthru.com.
  • Site Domain – Enter your website’s domain to help enable Sailthru’s Personalization Engine and/or Site Personalization Manager.
