I'm a convert from Google Analytics (Universal and GA4). In GA, there are base reports that show things such as Sessions, User, Revenue, Acquisition, Engagement et al. Are there any pre-made reports that I can install? What's the best practice for setting up reporting and tracking in Adobe Analytics similar to the out of the box reporting I see in GA?
Hey @JPFiber, Welcome to the wide world of Adobe Analytics! A4T, which is the Analytics for Target integration, has a pre-built template for pulling in and analyzing Target data within Analytics. The interface is a very user friendly, drag and drop to include any of the Analytics metrics you choose into your reports. If there are specific report settings you want to re-use over and over you can always create a Workspace template and re-use it to your hearts content. There is a great primer on A4T here to get you started: https://express.adobe.com/page/Lo3Spm4oBOvwF/
hey @ben_mrm there are a few existing notification options that you can set on a user-by-user basis. When in Target there is the bell icon in top right area of the page where you can see the alerts and notifications. When in that dialog box there is a gear icon that takes you to a page to set preferences for notifications via in-app or email by solution. You may be referring to another un-released alert system and we're reaching out to our product team to see if there is a status update.
Yes, more curious about any future potential, maybe to set up notifications to send to individuals when say an activity is activated or deactivated, winner detected, etc.
The debugger doesn't provide a mapping of at_property to a Target workspace. As you mentioned you can see the at_property value but you'd have to keep your own mapping/list of at_property to see the workspace.
Thanks, Ryan. at_property shows up in the Developer tool network call, however, how do we get to know the Workspace name since a single at_property can be tied to multiple workspaces?
Ah, good point. In that case you might need to toggle to the "All my workspaces" workspace and then search for the activity name, or activity url (if a VEC based activity).
Hey everyone! Excited to answer some of your questions. If you didn't have any questions or were looking for something awesome to read about Target and the AI/ML features, check out this post written by someone super smart
Hey Ryan - nice chatting with you again!!! Our team launched Target with 100% exclusively loading activities with Prefetch. I have some use cases to adjust and load via Execute. I expect most of our activities to use execute going forward. What should I be looking for/aware of as we move to the execute mode (as the team is comfortable using prefetch)? Also can you provide any additional documentation on when to use prefetch vs. execute as I don't plan to use prefetch very often (if at all)?
Using Page Load Execute might actually simplify things a bit because you won't need to use multiple or subsequent getOffer calls to render things. If you're using TriggerView that fires as the page is loading then you might alter how/when you apply changes to the experience in the VEC. In short, going from prefetch to execute on page load could simplify things. Here is the basics of how things work: https://experienceleague.adobe.com/docs/target-dev/developer/client-side/at-js-implementation/at-js/...
If you have any follow-ups, the folks here are happy to jump in!
Great to hear from you!
Hi @JPFiber ! Thanks so much for posting your questions here in the chat! To answer your last one: there is indeed no video, however the objective of these Coffee Chats is to ensure that your Questions receive Expert answers. From here, we use these rich conversational exchanges to get a pulse on which features are resonating the most with our customers toward creating more helpful content.
Unfortunately that wasn't how I perceived this event. A simple more proactive monitoring of the posts in the community and answering is more efficient. I planned an hour thinking this was some sort of real time "coffee chats" type of thing. I know Adobe can do better.
Hi @JPFiber, thanks for your feedback. This is akin to an "Ask Me Anything" with select Target experts. Please feel free to post any of your tactical Target-related questions in the chat here and our experts will be happy to try to answer them. We have a "Journey to Driving Growth with Personalization" webinar happening right now (at the same time as this Coffee Break) if you'd like to join that instead of posting questions here.
Hope this is helpful and please feel free to reach out directly to identify the resources that would be the most helpful to you. Thanks again for joining today!
Thanks -- but I'm not interested in Personalization at the moment -- I'm interested in the question I initially posted, which I've not lost track of.
