Has anyone had success w/ fetching Facebook Install data to Branch? (via Branch deeplinks)

We’ve an Android app & we’re doing Facebook Ads for the same. We’d like to get the Facebook Install data to Branch by using Branch deeplinks. Here’s the documentation provided by Branch for the same – https://dev.branch.io/features/facebook-ads/guide/ 

Even upon implementing every piece of that, it doesn’t work out. Facebook wants the deeplink to be in the form of App URL scheme (mymobileapp:// ….) & it isn’t accepting any Branch deeplink. If we go w/ the structure that Facebook suggests, how can we track clicks or installs from Facebook Ads at all (in Branch)?

Hi there!

This is an issue we see occasionally without any specific rhyme or reason. The workaround is a bit more effort, but still possible. Take a look at this page for details!
