Push Contacts into Tend with TendID

Out of the box, Tend will automatically identify website visitors as they enter their email into a web form. However, there may be times where you need more control of the website visitors Tend identifies. In these cases, using TendID may be appropriate choice.

These instructions walk you through installing TendID onto your site. It takes just a few minutes to add the code snippet to your app or website.

If you haven't already, run through the typical Tend Install. Then copy and paste the code snippet below, before the tag on every page where you want to utilize TendID. The code snippet should appear above the Tend tracking script.
