This article explains how to extract data for the Payable event which represents the cost side of money - what you owe your affiliates. The extract file produced is in Comma Separated Value (CSV) format. CSV is a popular text-based file format which can be imported by most spreadsheet and database software and can be opened in any editor that supports text based file formats.
TSL Ping Tree has an event driven architecture. When a visit begins, for example, a Click event is raised and certain tracking information is captured. When a lead is posted, a Form Submission (a.k.a. Submit) event is raised; this is where data items such as the name and email address of the lead are captured.
The Extracts menu lists all of the supported events. Each option from that menu presents a web page for extracting data for the selected event.
Select a time zone and enter a From and a To date. The From date is inclusive while the To date is exclusive. For example, to extract a single day's worth of data select that date for the From date and the following date for the To date.
As soon as you enter both a From and To date, and if you change a From or To date, the Filename field will automatically change to "Payables_FromDate-ToDate.csv" e.g. "Payables_20120101-20120201.csv". You may change the Filename before clicking the Create Extract button.
