The following is a video that reviews our Sweden Release feature list as well as tracking tag best practices for default settings. I have put the notes on tracking tag best defaults notes first for easier access.

Brax Tracking Tag Defaults and Sweden Release from Brax

Tracking Tag Defaults

All tracking parameters should be added to the campaign level except the Brax {{AD_ID}}, {{IMAGE}}, and {{AD_TITLE}}. This is because all other variable are passed to the network and replaced by the networks technology not Brax (except for the {{CAMPAIGN}} which we replace at the campaign level). Here is a screenshot of how it should be set-up:
