I'm trying to implement s.products in an environment that has never used it. I heard in an Adobe training a while ago that the category part of the s.products variable will be deprecated and shouldn't be used long term. Is this true, or what's the current state of Category? I haven't found any documentation or announcement acknowledging any current or future deprecation. Is there a replacement or something that should be used instead?
If it's being deprecated, I guess I'll just leave the first part of s.products null, because I'm guessing they wouldn't change the whole format of s.products.
If you provided a category section in your product string, version 14 made a 1:1 association between the product and category.
In Version 14, the first category associated with a product in a calendar month would be tied to that product for the entire month.
Adobe Analytics/SiteCatalyst 15 allows multiple categories per product. If you have products in multiple categories in the product string, you might see different values in the category report than you did before.
