Tag Defaults

Any Tag Code you add without it's own specific URL (ie, you leave the URL blank) will use the Tag Default URL. Changing the Tag Default URL will change all these Tag Codes.

You can overrule the Tag Default URL at any time and add a specific URL for any Tag Code. You can then also revert back to the Tag Default by clicking the 'Use Default URL' on any Tag Code.

Why use Tag Defaults

Tag Defaults become extremely powerful as you grow the number of Tag Codes you manage. Changing the destination URL on 5, 10 or 10,000 tags one by one isn't much fun.

For example, you may create two Tag Codes for collecting reviews at a store. You create and name one Tag Code 'window' and the other 'Point of Sale' and then encode the ixkio Tag Code link onto the tags.

Both these tags go to the same destination - your review site. So you could enter the same URL for both. Or, you could leave them blank and use the Tag Default URL.

If you now change where you collect your reviews, instead of changing the URL on each Tag Code, you can just change the Tag Default URL and both Tag Codes will update automatically.

Advanced Use of Tag Defaults

Tag Defaults can be combined with Subtags to create dynamically created Tag Code URLs while still using a Tag Default URL.

Upgrading from Lite to Flex

Tag Defaults remain on the platform during the upgrade. A Tag Default becomes a Tag Group Default Response during the upgrade.
