  1. In order to implement the campaign feature, when you create your URL for students to link to the CCCApply application you must add the extra parameter of &user1=x (where x = the name of your campaign) on to the end of the URL link. You can do this for up to three parameters, using &user1=x&user2=y and &user3=z (where x, y and z = the names of other unique campaigns). For example, the format for implementing a URL for three campaigns would look like this: http://www.google.com

    https://www.opencccapply.net/cccapply-welcome? cccMisCode=231&user1=x&user2=y&user3=z

    This is an example of a college's CCCApply application URL with the Campaign 1 custom data field appended to the end of the Application URL.

  3. Update your application Format Definition XML file to include the new campaign fields
  4. Configure your SIS system to import the new fields
  5. Update your download client "transfer client jar file" (which does not affect your existing download process).

Info
For more information on updating your CCCApply download XML files, refer to the CCCApply Download Client User Guide.
