Figures that you were working around an issue.... Particularly interested to hear that you've noticed some issue with the JavaScript promises... we've also noticed that it doesn't always seem to wait for one action to complete before executing the next (even though we got "run rule components in sequence" selected in the property), and we've also seen some oddities where the order of rule execution doesn't seem to be respected unless we put larger gaps between the order number (e.g. we can't go ...

That's really interesting that you've got over 100 rules that include the send beacon action and clearVars action. We've set up Launch so that we've got just one rule that executes all the time to clearVars (we've used the ordering to ensure it always happens after the beacon has been sent), so we've only got one place we have to do this. (we've also only got 2 rules for sending - one for s.t(), one for s.tl() ) I can understand how this might be a frustration if you're having to manage this in ...

You can customise the colour pallet for the project as a whole (project > project info &settings) - As far as I'm aware, this is the only control you have over the legend colours

Screen shot showing where you need to drop the segments in so they stack rather than breaking down: Note: it will say "+Add" rather than "Breakdown" if you've got it in the right place

Got it - it's where you are dropping the segment in that's causing it to breakdown rather than go one beneath the other. Give me a min and I'll post a screen shot

Apologies in advance if I'm missed something, but could you not just create segments of the classification values if that is what is showing in your screenshot?

Instead of using the dimension in your table, you can create segments for each item (e.g. stronglyAgree) and drag them into left side of the table and it will retain the order in which you drop them in. You may also be able to do this directly with dimension items.

I think this should be possible. Can you describe the type of report in Analysis Workspace you would want to create using the data as it will determine the best approach. I'm thinking you'll need to use the s.products variable and a merchandising event.

This would make a lot of sense, I would assume for consistency Adobe would make it work like 'tags' in Adobe Workspace for the project list or components. i.e. if you want to search for a 'tag' you just put a '#' in front (e.g. #clicks #facebook #all pages)

At the moment the starting point for any new library is the 'upstream resources'. However, we are finding situations where we want to use a library that is in development as the starting point. The only way to achieve this seem to be to recreate the setup of the other library by manually selecting the same revisions - unfortunately, this is time consuming and prone to error 😞 Please can you consider introducing an option to 'copy' a library in development to use as the starting point for a new ...

That would be useful - I think the ability to add 'tags' in the same way you can in Analysis Workspace would be good as well (possibly more flexible than just having a favourites flag)

@philipk92120636 Happy to have a look if you DM me the URL. Also, have you had a look in Workspace to see what the additional events are coming through against? Is it setting the event more than once against a single page view, or are the additional events originating from link tracking metrics calls?

Hope this helps, any questions let me know

We have got ourselves into a situation where we have made many revisions to rules/elements which we have not published and no longer intend to publish. What is live and what is in our elements/rules are very different and it is now very difficult to get back to a clean baseline within rules and elements. The only way to do this is to manually revert every changed rule/element to match the current live version - very time consuming and prone to error. Please can you consider introducing a way to ...

@ashokadiylil - if you are looking to pass the MCID from a mobile app to a website, but the query string parameter is getting lost due to redirects there is nothing that can be done from an Adobe implementation point of view. You need to work with the people responsible for the redirects to either remove them, or to find a way to preserve the query string parameter to the point at which you can use it.

It would be great if in the context of mobile apps, Launch was able to replace Adobe Analytics processing rules. e.g. allow server side processing of the metrics calls, mapping context data variables to data elements and then mapping data elements to analytics variables using rules, ideally with the ability to execute server side JavaScript to maximise flexibility - all through the launch interface/workflow I was hoping the launch server side road map stuff would deliver this, but is seems to be...

It's great that you can get from the "edit library" screen into a rule/element to compare revisions. However, it is frustrating that when you close the rule/element you lose the context and get kicked out to the element/rules list rather than back to the edit library page. How it currently works:Edit Library > view rule > compare revision > *close* compare revision > *close* rule > rule list page 😞 How it should work:Edit Library > view rule > compare revision > *close* compare revision > *clos...

When comparing revisions it is often the current live version that you want to compare to. However, there is no easy way to see which revision is the one that is currently published to the live environment. Please could you consider introducing some kind of visual indicator of the current published version in the compare revisions screen drop down menu?

It is a while since I looked at this so I could be wrong or might even be referring to an old version of the SDK. Caveats aside.... If you are looking to set the MCID in a mobile app, I don't think you can directly overwrite the MCID but you can set a custom visitor ID which takes precedence over the MCID (the equivalent of setting s.visitorID on the web). There is some nuances which may be relevant depending on why you want to do it. As mentioned setting a custom visitor ID does not overwrite t...
