Hey Community,

Does anyone run an AngularJS (or similar single page experience) site with Adobe Analytics implemented via DTM. I'd like a good example to base my implementation on. If you have any documentation or best practices to share regarding DTM and angularJS please also let me know. Thanks in advance!

Hey Paul,

I don't have any documentation or best practices, but we have done a little bit of tracking with angular and this has come in handy for "page views":

In other words, if you want to hook into a view change event with angular, you could do something like this:

$('appElement').scope().$root.$on('$locationChangeSuccess', function () { console.log(window.location.href); // can use this for page name //s.t(); or s.tl(...); or fire a "direct rule" in DTM });

There are other things you can do from there of course like listening/watching:

https://docs.angularjs.org/api/ng/type/$rootScope.Scope#$watch

And you can use DTM's selectors to do other event based rules as well.

That is the little advice I can give.  🙂

Hey Paul,

From my personal experience, implementing Adobe Analytics via DTM on a single page app is always little TRICKY. This implementation would require a lot of quick and dirty fixes, especially when you have a complex implementation with a lot of customization.

Before I suggest the possible fix to your problem, disclaimer, I am NOT a JS expert so my solution would be more focused on Analytics Implementation workarounds than the Single Page App frameworks like Backbone.js etc

Below code might be a good example in Angular JS to capture the Page Views (not the literal page view but view changes):

$rootScope.$on('$locationChangeSuccess', function(event, url, oldUrl, state, oldState){

    var currentURL =url.toLowerCase().toString();

    var dataLayer={};

    if(currentURL.includes('ABC')){

     dataLayer= {

            'pagename': 'ABC View'    

        }

_satellite.pageBottom();

       }

else if(currentURL.includes('XYZ')){

       dataLayer = {

            'pagename': 'XYZ View'         

        }

_satellite.pageBottom();

}

Hope this helps and Don't forget to like this comment

Thanks bbythewa! I'm going to give this a shot and will report back when I have some time this week to work on this. It seems this question is coming up a lot, just in the past week. Your help is greatly appreciated 🙂
