Automated Personalization Form Based Experience Composer

Hi Everyone,

Wondering if anyone has heard if the Form Base Experience Composer will be added to Automated Personalization.

We're shifting away from inline mbox calls toward the API to improve our site performance. The visual composer does not allow us to do this well.

Thanks!

Nick

Hi Nick ,

 "Form-Based Composer for AP" is on the Adobe Target Future Roadmap However We are not sure of the date / timeline on when it will be available to the Adobe target Users.

Also,The at.js library is a new implementation library for Adobe Target designed for both typical web implementations and single-page applications.

Among other benefits, at.js improves page-load times for web implementations and provides better implementation options for single-page applications.

The at.js library offers several improvements over the mbox.js library, including:

  •   Completely asynchronous communication via cross domain AJAX
  •  Important: Although at.js communicates with the Target servers asynchronously, the at.js file itself must load synchronously in the <head> section of your page. Ideally, it should be one of the first scripts loaded. Once loaded, at.js executes mbox calls asynchronously through XMLHttpRequest, and does not block page rendering.
  •  No more blocking calls
  •  No document.write() used
  •  No immediate execution of JavaScript in Target responses
  •  Better timeout and error handling
  •  Customizable timeout per call
  •  No reloads on timeouts
  •  Functions designed specifically for single-page apps/MVC frameworks

Hi Parit,

Thank you for your response. Yes, we are using mbox.js. We will be switching to at.js sometime this year, though. Is one better than the other?

Thanks,

Nick
