One additional point: it may be worth "seeding" the values using Classification Importer (e.g., make a sheet with all of the values from $1 to $100000 and upload it) rather than the Classification Rule Builder approach. If you have decimals and are willing to forego that level of precision, use Classification Rule Builder to discard the decimal then "sub-classify" using Classification Importer as laid out here.

I've used a very similar approach to make Calculated Metrics based on Survey scores that have a possible range of 0 to 100; have to admit that I didn't come up with the additional step of converting into Units / Tens / Hundreds, which will save me some tedium next time!

Best Practice for Multiple Editors in Adobe Launch
Avatar

BarryLennon

BarryLennon
- Adobe Experience Platform Launch
Some Background My organisation migrated to Adobe Launch from Adobe DTM in 2019. There are typically 3-4 people working on the same Property at any given time. In DTM, our "rule" for editing was: do not edit any Resource (Rule, Data Element, etc.) where "Status" is "Unapproved" In essence, this enforces the idea that an Approved change to a Resource can only come from a single Editor at a time. Adobe Launch When we started working with Adobe Launch, we assumed there was no longer any need for "m...

Using CNAME to boost data capture rates
Avatar

BarryLennon
- Adobe Analytics
1 Bottom LineI am considering implementing a "noscript"-style data capture method to boost the rate at which Adobe Analytics data is recorded on my organisation's websites. The basic idea is If Adobe Launch fails to load (i.e. the _satellite object cannot be detected), formulate and trigger an Adobe Analytics server call with the most pertinent pieces of data (Page Name, URL, Transaction ID). I'm interested in thoughts around this:Has anyone implemented anything similar?If not, why not?Does anyo...

In that case, @adlik, I think there are two parts to what you could consider doing:If it were me, I would capture the "real" timings on the initial page load, event if it meant potentially delaying the initial Page View call to wait for the browser to make them available in `performance.timing`For the "dynamic" page views (i.e. those subsequent ones), I would work with the Devs to define at least two timing events:"Navigation" - i.e. the point at which the user triggers an action that prompts a ...

Hi adilk​,I wouldn't recommend any longer the use of Adobe's performanceTiming plugin: in my view, the "lost" measurements (you will miss almost every single "exit page", i.e. the last page of the visit) are too important to ignore.A better approach, in my opinion, is to write your own Data Element that calculates the measurements you want from the performanceTiming object (with reference to "navigationStart") and assigns these values to Events. This sounds more complicated that using the provid...

Wildcard Operators when using "matches" in Segment Builder
Avatar

BarryLennon

BarryLennon
- Adobe Analytics
Which wildcard operators are supported in Segment Builder?Looking through the posts returned by this search and having done some experimentation, I suspect the asterisk (*) character is the only one (i.e. "matches zero or more of any character").However, my reason for asking is that the Comparison Operators for Segment help article makes reference to "wildcard operators" (in the plural) and the concept of "globbing" (which is much more extensive than the simple asterisk).

Gigazelle​I've had a response from Adobe Client Care, and they've clarified something that was incorrect in my original post: what Firefox is proposing to block by default is "Third-Party Cookies"; this is a different setting with the "Content Blocking" configuration of Firefox (screenshot below).This policy appears to have no impact at all on the functioning of Adobe DTM, Adobe Analytics, and Adobe Target (as far as maintaining "Visit" and "Visitor" linking of activity goes).

@mikewebguyThere's one correction I would like to make to what you've written: Mozilla's blocking is already on by default in Private Mode; this has been the case for a long time in Firefox now.The concern here, and I think it's borne out by this blog post from Mozilla (look for the comment "release it by default early 2019"), is that Mozilla is going to bring that setting out of Private Mode and into "normal" browsing mode.Since that blocks, for example, Adobe DTM, this will mean that all Firef...

Gigazelle​Do you have any update on your findings given the latest release of Firefox?As per this Mozilla blog post, I think that Mozilla aims to block all cookies (and other site storage) from known "trackers" (Adobe Analytics, for our purposes) from "early 2019" (I understand this means v65 of Firefox).If this is a correct interpretation, does it mean that Adobe Analytics will not function in any useful manner for anyone with a CNAME redirect (e.g., "metrics.mycompany.com" for "www.mycompany.c...

The answer turns out to be quite simple: you need to specify the fields that you want to see ('id' and 'name' are the defaults).So, add "fields":["definition"] to the request.

Once I had looked into this a bit more, I decided to move away from the performanceTiming plug-in altogether.There was a number of small quirky things that informed the decision, but a major factor was that the data was only being captured on the subsequent Page View call (or the Exit Link call, if there was one) - this meant that you end up missing one measurement in almost every visit, and it's worth noting that the missed measurement is for the load of the page on which the visitor chooses to...
