Places Point Of Interest Event with (Track) Analytics context data


Level 3

Hi all,


We are using Places to configure POI's (store locations) and we are trying to map to the entry and exit events additional context data (Current POI name, Last POI Entered, Last POI Exited, Time stamp of entry and exit, etc) - we followed the instructions from the documentation: https://experienceleague.adobe.com/en/docs/places/using/use-places-with-other-solutions/places-adobe... but don't appear to be receiving any of the context data points in analytics attached to the entry/exit events. 


In place of places monitor - When a customer opens our App (it moves into ready state) it determines the location of the device and then calls Adobe Places to grab the 5 closest POIs (to the known GPS location) and stores them in the OS waiting for an 'entry' or 'exit' event.  Once in a the 'ready state' the operating system continues to check the GPS location against the stored POI's and fires events when someone enters or exits. 


We are using one Key (and one Evar) in the analytics track event attached to each entry/exit action and classifications to separate the values we want to return in analytics (as above - current POI name...etc) 


Has anyone managed to successfully implement Adobe Places - not using places monitor - on their App and get context data with events mapped into analytics? 


Any assistance or documentation referencing would be very much appreciated!

Hi @Mycal_Tamariki ,


Please see the documentation I've provided below for details on how to implement your use cases. Your application might not require active region monitoring. Places Service can still be used to get your users’ location data integrated with other Experience Platform products like Adobe Analytics:-
