Although one of my feeds contains 4582 products only 150 are making it into a collection. This is a huge issue. Any ideas? Anyone else having the same issue? In order to find a resolution I have created a specific environment for that feed. So the particular feed points to that environment. No other feed is pointing to it. The problems remains after having the feed downloaded and indexed.
I really would be grateful for any support as the problem is pending for a week now without having a soltuion from Adobe Clientcare or Engineering. I can only hope I guess.
We have the Same issues. I would like Target just to implement the Products which are also available. When a Product is not in the Feed anymore this should be set to EOL and deleted. As in an other Post, this should be Standard.
How can i get this working. At the Moment we have 20'000 which are not available. And i think this makes the indexing Process way slower.
For whatever reason the number of products in a collections within the Recommendations UI are very often at ZERO although products exist. So that might be a browser cache issue. When I am using the "Advanced Search" across all feeds and collections usually I am getting (valid) numbers.
To your challenge:
And as long as the products are bookable (available) this to us is not an issue. However non-bookable products wouldn't make it two-times into a recommendations although they still might be in feeds. Here is why:
If a non-bookable product makes it into a recommendation and someone clicks on it we declare it as not-bookable in Adobe Target.
We can reference the state "non-bookable" in Adobe Target through a data element in DTM that takes the information from our data layer.
In order for us to surpress non-bookable products we defined an "Excludusion Rule" for non-bookable products.
As a result it won't appear in any subsequent visit from any visitor.
However if the same products gets available again and if we have a visit to that particular product we declare it back to bookable.
As a result of this the products won't be longer excluded from recommendations.
