Re: Configuring List Variables in Launch - Adobe Experience Platform Data Collection 15-06-2021
@amgup is correct, you need to set the list var in custom code. The only thing to add is that if you are passing a list var on a custom link tracking call you need to remember to add the variable to s.linkTrackVars in your custom code or else it won't pass through to Adobe (it's easy to forget this as Launch handles this for you when using the form based wizard). A good way to do this is to use the append to list https://experienceleague.adobe.com/docs/analytics/implementation/vars/plugins/apl.h...

Re: workaround to the total product lenght - Adobe Analytics 09-06-2021
Out of interest do all of your 34 variables have the potential to change week to week or can some of them be handled through classifications? Also, of the variable where classifications don't work because they change week to week, how many have a known/limited set of possible values? e.g. I'm assuming season has 4 fixed possibilities - spring, summer, autumn, winter

Re: Launch Rule or Rule Component Not Executing on Some B... - Adobe Experience Platform Data Collection 04-06-2021
If the issue is a timing issue (e.g. the browser navigating away before the metrics call can happen) then you may want to take a look at this method that attempts to avoid these issues: https://experienceleague.adobe.com/docs/analytics/implementation/vars/config-vars/usebeacon.html?lang=en

Re: Issue in GetPrevious Page Name - Adobe Analytics 04-06-2021
This sounds like the getPreviousValue plugin is being called multiple times in the same page load. One thing to check is that you are only calling getPreviousValue when a page view occurs (e.g. not on link tracking calls or other events). For instance, if you've put the getPreviousValue function call in doPlugins it's easy to accidently cause this to run multiple times as doPlugins runs all the time for various reasons (not just on page view).

Re: Marketing Channel Processing Rules - Query String Par... - Adobe Analytics 04-06-2021
You could consider moving the aggregator rule above the referring domains rule to give it priority over the referring domains rule - this way there would be no need for the exclusion on the referring domains rule. It's probably better practice to do it this way round and may make it more simple to trouble shoot the issue e.g. if it you are not getting aggregator traffic you know it is because either the query string parameter is missing or does not contain the value you are looking for. A couple...

Re: Don't use clearVars! - Adobe Analytics 02-06-2021
@yuhuisg - really interesting insight into how you approach this.... and is very different to how I like to set up. I think it is one of those situations where there are multiple approaches and there is no right or wrong approach. Just for the record in case any one is interested here is our approach... We have a Launch rule that always runs before everything else that both calls clearVars and sets linkTrackVars & linkTrackEvents to "none". We do this deliberately to create a completely clean sl...

Re: Debug mode - Filter type of logs printed to the console - Adobe Experience Platform Data Collection 24-05-2021
@Stewart_Schilling It's a fair point, and one I considered 🙂 But I don't think I can get the configuration I wanted this way. I want everything to appear in the console that would normally appear, plus just the custom logs I've set in code using the _satellite.logger function (i.e. none of the other stuff that launch outputs by default when you enable debugging) - Launch seems to split out so much stuff when we have debugging is enabled that it just swamps the console.

Analysis Workspace: create a new "Time Between Events" visualization - Adobe Analytics 21-05-2021
Description -Measuring the time between events is an area that is often asked about by our users of Adobe Analytics and is an important measure of improvement for many processes. At the moment if we want to find the time between events we can set custom code up for each specific scenario and pass this into an event, build some calculated metrics etc. but this is a very clunky and inflexible way to operate. I can't help thinking this is an area that Adobe could do something really special in. I'm...

Debug mode - Filter type of logs printed to the console - Adobe Experience Platform Data Collection 21-05-2021
Description -Currently when debugging is enabled all events are logged to the console which makes it very hard to see what is going on. It would be great if there was a way to select which types of events were written to the console. Often I just want to see the custom logs generated where I've used the _satellite.logger function in custom code. Why is this feature important to you -It would make debugging easier. At the moment I find myself often resorting to using console.log because it is eas...
