Hi @GentryLin and @bkostak!

Thanks for joining us in the Target Community today!  This question was posted by Target Community member sethgarske:

"Is there an easy/automated way to flag pages that are currently running tests or personalized experiences?  The good news is our testing and personalization program is now running across a large number of pages across our site.  But this has created some operational challenges.  Our web team has to manually review the list of active tests (or just notice the page looks different in AEM), before they make any updates to a page.  I’m wondering if anyone has come up with a better solution to help avoid web content updates from breaking tests and personalized experiences?  It would be great if there was a way to add a flag in AEM so authors could quickly see a given page has a live test running on the page."

Hi @sethgarske, this is an interesting question. Having an internal review and governance strategy like what your web team is doing today is the best approach. As far as a programmatic way to manage, this would be a great idea to submit to AEM Ideas, which are reviewed by the product management team: https://experienceleaguecommunities.adobe.com/t5/forums/postpage/board-id/adobe-experience-manager-i...

Hi @analyticsenthu , there isn't a filter for last modified date or export option in the UI, but you can use the Target Admin REST APIs to retrieve a list of activities with options to filter by date range and sorting by end date: https://developers.adobetarget.com/api/#list-activities

Hi @GentryLin and @bkostak!

Thanks for joining us in the Target Community today!  This question was posted by Target Community member vk84:

 

"I wanted to have some information on Adobe Target recommendation limitation.

  • For fetching Entities in Target recommendation, maximum number of entities that can be referenced in a design, either hardcoded or via loops, is 99. Can this limit of 99 be increased?

REF -  https://experienceleague.adobe.com/docs/target/using/troubleshoot/target-limits.html?lang=en

  • Using Target recommendation API, you can search catalog using API. The MAX number of search results returned by API is 500. Can this limit of 500 be increased?

REF - https://developers.adobetarget.com/api/recommendations/#operation/search

Feel free to point me if you have similar thread available.

Hi @vk84 , re: the max catalog search results, unfortunately there is no productized or documented way to do this. It is possible to get at the data via a browser dev tools function workaround. You could use the Catalog Search function in Target to display the correct catalog entity data. Then in your browser open the Developer tools panel and select the network tab and refresh page. In the list of network requests you should see one starting with 'productSearch'. Right click on that request and open it in a new browser tab, that will display your search data in a JSON format. From there you would copy and paste into text editor or spreadsheet. Not ideal method, but it is a way to access the entity data passed client-side.

Hi @GentryLin and @bkostak! This question was posted by Target Community member Sneha-Parmar:

 

"Hello everyone, I want to create a dashboard of Adobe Target operational metrics like listed below. Can anyone please suggest what are the best ways to achieve this. Currently I maintain this data in an excel sheet (manually) and create a dashboard from excel data. Wondering if there is a better and automated way of doing this. Please share if you have any solution .

Some of the metrics I want in dashboard are below. 

  • Long running activities (>20 days)
  • Average number of days active activities is live
  • Percentage of  A/B, MVT, XT & Recommendations activity
  • Number of Activities with positive lift
  • Number of activity live in a given week

Thanks!"

Hi @Sneha-Parmar 

Analytics for Target (A4T) creates the flexibility to track the following metrics:

*Unique Visitors, Visits, or Activity Impressions
*Conversion Rates
*Lift
*Confidence

Here is our docs link for more details into setting up different metrics in A4T: https://experienceleague.adobe.com/docs/analytics/analyze/analysis-workspace/panels/a4t-panel.html?l...

A4T does not breakdown activity type by percentages. However, native reporting in Target does give a breakdown by percentage for 'important attributes' which more details can be found here: https://experienceleague.adobe.com/docs/target/using/reports/insights/important-attributes-report.ht...

When specifying a traffic source based on referring LP Query, syntax wise how do I input the source? I.e. tracking affiliate traffic via utm_source contains affiliate | tracking paid traffic from google (not organic) utm_source contains google. 

In the source box do I just input the source 'affiliate' or do I have to specify 'utm_source=affiliate'. Haven't had too much luck finding documentation for this. Thank you!
