My question is similar to Classification Importer Resulting in Incorrect Classification . However, the suggested fixes did not work for me.
I have implemented a sub classification. When uploading the classification file all Sub Site Sections seem to be overwritten with one of the Sub Section values.
In order to help you understand better, I'll show you what I did exactly:
1. Admin > Report suites > Edit Settings > Traffic Classifications > Select Classification Type: Channel
Added a sub classification layer
2. I edited my classification file, e.g.:
|Key||Site Section||Site Section^Sub Site Section|
3. When exporting the classification file the next day, the file looks e.g.:
Site Section^Sub Site Section
Does anyone have an idea, why this is not working?
Also: Is this still relevant Limitations to subclassifications ?
This is a common "gotcha" in AA. I fall for it too, and I've been using AA for a long time.
The reason is that "Sub Site Section" is a classification of "Site Section", not "Channel". So since "Site Section" has the same value in all rows, "Sub Site Section" has the same value in all rows too.
The solution is simple: Update your classifications like so:
Notice that "Site Section" and "Sub Site Section" are at the same level. So they're both classifications of "Channel".
Now you can classify correctly, like so (take note of the last column's header):
|Key||Site Section||Sub Site Section|
