About Cross-domain TrackingBack to top
Cross-domain tracking (referred to in Google as Cross-domain measurement) makes it possible for Google Analytics to see sessions on two related sites (such as an e-commerce site and a separate shopping cart site) as a single session.
This useful feature can then help you determine where your bookings are coming from and help you attribute your bookings to the correct source in your Google Analytics profile.
To get Cross-domain tracking set up you need to do it within three places - Checkfront, Google Analytics, and your own website.
1. Cross-domain Tracking: Setup in CheckfrontBack to top
To set up this feature in Checkfront...
- Go to Integrations under the Manage menu in your top navigation menu.
- Search for Google Analytics. It is listed under Conversions.
- Hover over the Integration tile and click it to open the Setup modal.
- Enter your Parent Page Domain (website top-level domain).
- Click Update to save your changes.
Cross-domain tracking is now set up in Checkfront!
The Parent Page Domain needs to include the full domain name including the extension, if that is part of your website domain, for example, www.domain.com.
The instructions in the application are incorrect and will be updated. Thank you for your patience!

The next step is to add your website to the Referral Exclusion List in Google Analytics.
For those using Analytics.js, the Referral Exclusion List can be found within Admin > Tracking Info > Referral Exclusion List. Click on + Add Referral Exclusion and enter your website Domain name and click Create to save your entry.
Review the changes made and Cross-domain tracking is set up in Google!
For those using the Gtag.js version of Google Analytics, you need to configure these settings in your code. Please see the Gtag.js Google Analytics documentation for further instructions.

From here you have to activate Cross-domain tracking on your own website. See the tip below to find instructions.
The Right Documentation for You!
Google Analytics documentation has two pages related to Cross-domain Tracking. The page you need depends on the way your Google Analytics code uses Analytics.js or Gtag.js. If you're not sure which one your website uses, then please consult your Web Developer.
The links for each type are below.
