Global Script Library

ion's global script library enables you to store and manage your third-party tracking scripts and/or custom Javascript solutions for use on your ion experiences. You'll organize your scripts in categories and, once saved, pull them into the <head>  or before the closing </body> tag at the campaign, creative or page-level. Any changes made to script stored in the library automatically rolls out to the pages it's implemented on.

This document walks through how to leverage the global script library to manage and implement your third-party tracking script(s) and Javascript solution(s). If you have a script ready-for-use, follow the steps below to add it the global library then implement on an ion experience.
