In Adobe Target Classic workflow, you had the ability to allow users into an experience based on the time of day.  It was configured as a segment option which could then be applied at either the experience level or campaign level.  Is this ability still part of the new Target Standard?  Is so, can any offer assistance on how to go about setting up an experience targeting campaign that changes based on Time of Day.  We have a product that is being promoted but is only available during certain time so we need to configure the message to align with that scenario.

Hi,
I would recommend you to use 'is greater than or equal to' and 'is less than or equal to' in your 7AM-9PM segment.

With the current implementation of segments, when hour of day is 7 or 21, user will see default offer. And, this may be the case when you checked. I have debugged and found that the script is sending the updated value and it should not be a concern.

Currently, 

  • 7-9 daytime segment is effective from 8AM-8PM (due to absence of equal to operator)
  • 9-7 evening segment is effective from 10PM-6AM
  • 0700-0759 hours  and 2100-2159 hours will show default content (not even entering your campaign).

Please make the changes.
