You can use the Interactions Monitor, when you want to track all of the interactions that were defined in your ad, including: EB interactions, custom interactions, video interactions, etc. For example, if you have added video to your ad using the Sizmek VideoScreen component, you can test that all of the video interactions are being tracked appropriately.

Note: The Interactions Monitor does not currently support In-Stream ads.

EB Command

The Sizmek interaction command you defined in your ad or assets.


The argument/parameters that were passed on the EB command.

The timer resets itself each time you refresh the preview.

  1. Click Sort Ascending, if you want to sort the columns in ascending order (from A to Z).
  2. Click Sort Descending, if you want to sort the columns in descending order (from Z to A).
  3. If you want to control which columns will appear and which will not, expand Columns,then select the checkboxes of the columns you want to appear.
