I'd like to add a url parameter such as exp=4tabA (when user enters experience A) and exp=4tabB (when user enters experience B), etc. The goal is so I can differentiate between revenue made within experiences in my Drupal CMS reporting (not just Target reporting).
Any thoughts on doing this?
Hi there and thanks for your question! The best way to do this is through response tokens which writes out the experience name to the page and then you can pick it up off the page to do whatever.
You'll need to refresh the page if you add a url parameter, but this may or may not work.
I'm guessing the page needs to load with the new parameter in order for your CMS to pick it up. If this is true you might need to use a redirect activity on top of your normal activity.
This isn't ideal though. Redirects shouldn't be used in this manner in my opinion because they can add page load time to the end visitors. It would be preferable to find another way to send info to your CMS. As Amelia has mentioned you can use response tokens to return info about the activity/experience a visitor saw to the page. You just need a mechanism for capturing that and sending it to your CMS - maybe an image request or something similar could work.
Interesting, I'll have to give this a go! Thanks
Yes, this doesn't seem like a clean solution, so I'll start with the original response, thanks for your thoughts!
