Next, switch to the Sender Details tab and specify the information about the email sender for the rule.

On the Google Analytics tab you can specify values to track your email campaigns in Google Analytics.

The fields Campaign Source, Campaign Medium and Campaign Name are REQUIRED.

Then, click the Schedule tab.
