How to install third-party app code
Installing third-party app code into Podia is a quick and simple process.
When you sign up for a third-party tool, they’ll provide you with a “snippet” of code to copy and paste into your site.
Once you have your snippet, go to Analytics and scroll down to the section for Custom code:
Scroll down, click Save changes, and that’s it!
Your app is installed.
Note: a few specific apps — primarily analytics and advertising apps —will require you to add an additional snippet to track conversions. Those conversion snippets will go in the box titled Conversion tracking code directly below the Website tracking code box:
