Extole Destination

Segment makes it easy to send your data to Extole (and lots of other destinations). Once you've tracked your data through our open source libraries we'll translate and route your data to Extole in the format they understand. Learn more about how to use Extole with Segment.

Getting Started

When you enable Extole in Segment, this is what happens:

  • Our CDN is updated within 5-10 minutes. Then our snippet will start asynchronously loading Extole’s core.js onto your page. This means you should remove Extole’s snippet from your page.
  • Because Extole tracks custom user data, no data will appear in Extole until you identify the current user.

Identify

When you call identify, we keep track of the current user and will include identifying information (userId and email) with all track calls sent to Extole.

Track

Segment supports Extole events in our client-side library through the track method.

Note: Remember, because Extole tracks custom user data, be sure to call identify before attempting to call track.
