I want to increment a counter eVar by one each time i receive a context variable.
It seems logical i should be able to overwrite the value of the eVar with "+1" when I receive the context variable.
Would this increment a counter eVar or simply write the value as literally "+1"
I'm *pretty* sure this works as expected (a "+1" in the processing rule value for a counter eVar results in the number being incremented). Do you have a dev report suite to confirm it? If not, I do and can let you know for certain.
Confirmed - I was able to set +1 and +2 in a processing rule for a Counter eVar and it worked as expected.
Based on my knowledge of how contextdata variables and evars work, this shouldn't be a problem. If it is, let us know and we can figure out an alternative.
Sounds positive - I don't have access so if you could confirm that would be amazing.
