Hello,

As part of a series of tests on the website navigation, I plan to add an entirely new drop-down menu with the goal of better surfacing some useful, but relatively hidden content.

I would like to add click-tracking to each of the new links in the navigation to determine which one is used most frequently.

When using A4T, it only appears possible to add one click-track event as a goal metric. I want to be able to capture clicks for each of the different navigation links, and ideally be able to determine whether they were visiting from a mobile/tablet/desktop.

I assume I need to leverage the mbox on the page in some way, does anybody know a way of achieving this?

The test has been built using the VEC and using the older mbox.js implementation.

Thanks,

Chris

Hi Chris - 

I should've provided a little more detail. eVars are Adobe Analytics variables that you would have to implement in your Target offers. They would make a request to Adobe Analytics and the data would appear there. We use a simple onClick with javascript or jquery to  populate and call the eVar. I can't really provide you with a code sample because or implementation is so custom it wouldn't make sense. Your developers should be able to call the eVar when visitors engage.

it would be similar to how you would implement click tracking with an mbox. We actually call the track.event  for Target at the same time we populate the eVar.

Here is a doc that might help.
