Allow non-admin users to copy rules to properties they have access to joshd7227840 - Dynamic Tag Management
(Relatively) recently, Adobe allowed for rules and data elements to be copied over to another property. However, only admin users have access to this feature! Since all levels of users (User, Approver, Publisher, Approver+Publisher) can create/save rules, and can also have access to multiple properties, from a permissions PoV, there's no reason why they shouldn't be able to copy rules across properties they have access to. I kinda feel like this is a bug more than a feature request...

Paginate notes joshd7227840 - Dynamic Tag Management
Since versioning in DTM is pretty lacluster at the moment, I try to liberally add notes whenever I make a change to things. And they just keep piling up. I have rules 50+,100+ notes and there is no pagination for them so I have to scroll down forever before I get to the save/cancel buttons. At a minimum, move the save/cancel buttons to ABOVE the notes so that their position is not affected by notes. But ideally, there should be pagination for notes so that page load times do not become longer an...

Re: Mobile Device Classification joshd7227840 - Adobe Analytics
Yes please.. as an agency, we have to deal with this headache all the time . Clients are constantly asking us to clarify for them these details and we never get a straight answer from Adobe At a minimum, I would like for there to be a whitepaper or online doc entry (that is kept up-to-date) with this info. Ideally I would like for there to be an interface that lists the rules/buckets, and ability to alter it (e.g. create our own additional buckets, alter default bucket rules, etc..)

Mobile Services - More flexible Rules joshd7227840 - Adobe Analytics
Mobile Services offers configuration for mapping trackAction and trackState data to Adobe Analytics variables and events. Once they are saved, they get listed in the Processing Rules interface (but are not-editible from there). So it seems to me that the Mobile Services interface is really just a "wrapper" for making Processing Rules. Thing is.. it's nowhere near as flexible as what you can do in the Processing Rules interface. For example, there is no way for me to map more than one value to a ...

Better Processing Rules Management joshd7227840 - Adobe Analytics
Please please PLEASE provide a better interface for managing existing processing rules. Our options are 1) wholesale wipe and overwrite everything to target rsids2) append individual PRs to target rsids But there is no "overview" to see which PRs are currently where. So let's say I have 100 rsids, and they are grouped up in different groups. And I have some "global" PRs common to all of them. So I add a PR and append to all. What happens when I need to update later? My choices are: a) Append a N...

Re: Control the precedence/order of DTM Rules joshd7227840 - Dynamic Tag Management
My unofficial understanding is that the order of operation is firstly based on the Trigger Rule At setting: Top of Page > Bottom of Page > DOM Ready > Onload Then, for each rule during those "phases", order of operation is based on the order they appear in the rule listing, and near as I can tell, that order is based on alphabetical sorting. So for example if you prefix them with something sequential e.g. 01 - Some rule02 - Rule 203 - some other ruleetc.. it will show up in the listing in that o...

Better version diff joshd7227840 - Dynamic Tag Management
When changes are made to code, and you move to approve them, a "diff" of the previous vs. new code/settings are shown. Also, when you switch versions from the top right dropdown in a given setting/rule detail screen, this also shows a "diff". This is NOT a real diff as most people are used to (e.g. using other version frameworks like svn, git, or CLI diff). For code blocks, can you please make it show a true diff so that we can see exactly what was changed in the code block?

Re: Allow directly downloading library joshd7227840 - Dynamic Tag Management
In the embed tab there is a deployment option called "Library Download" which allows you to download a zip of everything. Also the FTP Delivery option is similar in principle (in that it will export all the files), though it deploys to an FTP location you specify. Have you looked into that? Is that not what you need?

Re: DTM: Possibility to copy (all) Data Elements to other Properties or Accounts joshd7227840 - Dynamic Tag Management
PLEASE, I would also like for whole properties to be duplicated. This seems like a super easy thing to do backend-wise and an obvious necessity for templating web properties, especially for clients that have a lot of sites.

Re: show marketing cloud organization id (mcorgid) somewhere within marketing cloud interface joshd7227840 - Adobe Experience Cloud
Aha.. okay, so it seems that "Tools" shows up for me for some clients but not others. But, I am listed as admin in AA for ones that do not. Would you know why it would show for some but not others?

show marketing cloud organization id (mcorgid) somewhere within marketing cloud interface joshd7227840 - Adobe Experience Cloud
Whenever I have a client that wants to implement the visitor id service (e.g. VisitorAPI.js), we (or they) need to contact ClientCare to get their mcorgid. My understanding from speaking to CC is that it's automatically generated internally when the marketing cloud instance is setup. So, why not just list it somewhere within the marketing cloud interface? Would be one less thing to contact CC about...

Re: Improve documentation and training material joshd7227840 - Dynamic Tag Management
Thing is, Adobe makes money off of training courses, so it's not really in CC's best interests to answer questions like that. I rarely even see Adobe employees offering help on their support forums. I can somewhat undersand their position on it. It's an enterprise tool that is pretty complex, and it does take a certain amount of skill and dedication to really master, and the few who do dedicate themselves to that should get compensated accordingly. But having said that.. I 100% agree that defini...

Add eVar serialization to eVar settings joshd7227840 - Adobe Analytics
So it is possible to serialize events: http://microsite.omniture.com/t2/help/en_US/sc/implement/event_serialization_impl.html But it is not possible to do it through the AA interface; we still need to make a request to Adobe Analytics for this. It seems odd to me that we still need to contact CC for this, when event serialization was added to the interface. So, how about we get this added? Thanks!

Adobe Mobile Services - Allow Duplication of Mobile App Config joshd7227840 - Adobe Experience Cloud
Subject pretty much sums it up.. In Adobe Mobile Services, you can create multiple App profiles and each one has its own config section, where you can do things like map context data variables to Adobe Analytics variables. Problem is, there is no way to copy it to other profiles, or multi-select profiles to make changes in one go. I would like to see ability to either multi-select Apps to make changes to config stuff across multiple App profiles in one go, or else at least be able to copy it ove...

Let Data Connectors be setup for multiple report suites joshd7227840 - Adobe Experience Cloud
Currently when you setup a Data Connector, it only lets you select one report suite. So for example, if you want to setup Demandbase integration from a Data Connector, and you have 10 report suites, you have to go through the process 10 times. Well, some clients have hundreds of report suites. Please update Data Connectors to allow them to be setup for multiple report suites in one go. Note for others who face this issue: Workaround is to set it up for one report suite. Then login to the AA inte...

Re: Integrate VisitorAPI into DTM joshd7227840 - Dynamic Tag Management
FYI for those who are interested, What I have been doing is within the Adobe Analytics tool config > library management, I specify "custom" and "code hosted in DTM" to manually include the AM lib, and I add VisitorAPI into that code box above the AM core code. So far this seems to work, but at the cost of using the new "Automated by Adobe" feature Adobe added .josh

Ability to get an overview of Processing Rules across report suites joshd7227840 - Adobe Analytics
Currently Adobe does not provide a way in the interface to see an overview of processing rules across all report suites. The options for pushing process rules are either "append to" or "overwrite all" and it just shows a list of rsid(s) to select, but doesn't show what processing rules are currently applied to them. So basically this means that if you have a lot of report suites to manage and certain processing rules should only be applied to certain report suites, you have to maintain your own ...

Re: Allow for DTM to suppress/disable Tools for page load rules. joshd7227840 - Dynamic Tag Management
Hello MikeT, Thanks for the comment! Yes, that is a workaround I use in some "better than nothing" cases but two things about that: 1) This only accounts for AA, not any other tools/tags 2) Using s.abort simply supresses the actual request to Adobe from happening. It does NOT wholesale stop AA from executing. So if you have any rules or other code invoked sometime before that final s.t or s.tl call, it will get executed - including s_doPlugins calls. So for example.. if you have cookie based plu...

Allow for DTM to suppress/disable Tools for page load rules. joshd7227840 - Dynamic Tag Management
When making an Event Based Rule or Direct Call Rule, there is a Tracking section at the top of each Tool's section to flag it to be disabled for the rule. However, this feature does not exist for Page Load Rules. So for example, if I want to disable Adobe Analytics tracking on a certain page, there is no built-in way within DTM to do this. Or for example, If I only want to output Adobe Target code on a certain page (e.g. landing pages), there is no native within DTM to suppress it. Please add th...

Integrate VisitorAPI into DTM joshd7227840 - Dynamic Tag Management
Adobe is pushing both DTM and VisitorAPI and yet a) There is no native VisitorAPI integration within DTM b) There is no documentation (that I could find) for best practices / methods on how to integrate VisitorAPI into DTM (I looked in both Adobe Analytics online docs and DTM online docs) At a mininum I would like to see a documentation update explaining best practice / method for implementing VisitorAPI within DTM. But ideally I would like to see it integrated into DTM as a native thing. .josh

Show VisitorAPI MCORG ID in the AMC interface joshd7227840 - Adobe Analytics
Part of migrating to VisitorAPI is to get an MCORG ID. Currently there is no way to get this ID within the AMC interface or Adobe Analytics code manager or anywhere else - the only way to get it is to contact ClientCare. My suggestion is to please include the ID somewhere within the AMC interface or within Adobe Analytics code manager so that we don't have to contact ClientCare to get it. I know that it's not something individual clients have to do often (ideally not more than once) but as an Ad...

Re: Better classification handling joshd7227840 - Adobe Analytics
Just to put this into perspective.. I recently had to reclassify s.campaigns for a client. They have ~350 report suites. s.campaigns currently had 12 classification columns that had to be relabeled. Based on the limitations of the API, to complete this, it took: 1 API call to get the rsids and current classifications350 * 12 = 4200 API calls to delete each classification column from each rsid. 12 API calls to add the new columns So it took a total of 4213 API calls it took to accomplish this tas...

Re: Global area to place code that will fire for any event -- not just when a page load fires joshd7227840 - Dynamic Tag Management
One thing I have done to get around this is to define s.doPlugins and put it in the global config custom code section. s.usePlugins=true; s.doPlugins = function(s) { // this stuff will execute every s.t and s.tl call s.prop1='foobar'; // be sure to add your vars to linkTrackVars and linkTrackEvents if s.tl call! if (s.linkType) { s.linkTrackVars='prop1'; } }

Re: Support abstracted JavaScript event listeners in DTM event rules joshd7227840 - Dynamic Tag Management
In general I agree that the event based rules can definitely be more robust, but FYI, you should be able to do what you want by creating a direct call rule instead.

Change Adobe Analytics Report Navigation Back! joshd7227840 - Adobe Analytics
In the Adobe Analytics interface, the reports menu navigation used to be designed to expand sub-reports with a popup navigation. Recently, the Adobe Analytics design has been changed. Now when you click on it, it slides to the next submenu listing, and the previous/parent listing is no longer visible. I don't know who's idea it was to change how the report navigation works, but this change SUCKS. It makes it a LOT harder to find reports and know where you are in general. As an Adobe Partner, I h...

Better classification handling joshd7227840 - Adobe Analytics
So here's the thing.. I work with many clients who have lots of report suites and classified variables (elements). Classifications for variables (elements) get misaligned all the time. The problem is that within the Adobe Analytics interface, you can select multiple report suites, but in order to select/edit classifications for a given variable/element, the classifications for it must be currently aligned for all of the selected report suites. The interface does not provide a way to choose one a...
