Typically, Events are metrics. So they act as counters for recording incremental numbers on anything we track from Webpages or Apps.

 

So, I do not think we can assign a text value to events. More info here - Reference Link.

 

However, if you have seen a code snippet like below in any of your Launch Rules, then these are not for assigning text values to events. Rather, we are incrementing counters on the events mentioned.

 

s.events = "event1,event2";
s.linkTrackEvents = "event1";

Since events are counted as integers by default, in case you would like to count decimal values, you can utilise Numerical Events.

 

Also, in case of currency as well, we can assign a Currency name to Events through Current Events.

 

Take a look at Numeric and Current Events here - Reference Link.

 

Hope this helps!

Hey @DebbyNPL 

 

1. This walkthrough could help you, understand the process of setting up events through Launch

2. There's another way to send event values to Adobe Analytics through "Custom code" in Adobe Launch, plese follow this document

3. This Video illustration also gives a detailed demo and procedure

 

Hope this helps!

 

Thanks,

Hi kishore963

I have seen the 1 and 3 videos before, but there is no practice examples for the events value settings related.

 

For the 2, does that mean you can only insert numbers in the event values?

but I saw some videos on youtube, some users directly insert some text elements as events value, will it works? they really do that.
