Same-session metric tracking chrisw78940856 - Adobe Target
We've come across a use case where it's important for us to track when a visitor completes a transaction within their first session upon entry in to an activity.My question is: What's the best way to do this?I thought about incrementing a cookie value by 1 for each new session, and only tracking event if cookie value is 1, but I'm not sure if there's a more efficient way to do this.Otherwise, can I pull the SessionID from the existing mbox cookie and use that value?Appreciate any support here.

Re: Profile Script return numerical value chrisw78940856 - Adobe Target
Sure, script below:if (mbox.name == 'dashboard_header_banner') { var signUpDate = mbox.param('registration_date'); //"yyyy-mm-dd" var day = signUpDate.split("-")[2]; var month = signUpDate.split("-")[1]; var year = signUpDate.split("-")[0]; var dateText = year + month + day; var date = parseInt(dateText); return date}The 'E7' just means x10^7. It's shorthand; the date format I've used yields a number over 20 million, and it doesn't like having that many digits. It's still technically a number.I ...

Profile Script return numerical value chrisw78940856 - Adobe Target
Hi,I've created a profile script which is taking an mbox parameter for 'Sign up date' (which is a text string: "yyyy-mm-dd"), and converting it into a number, whose digits are YYYYMMDD. The value returned in mboxTrace for my test account is ''2.0170713E7" (13th July 2017).My hope is to then create an audience with criteria like "user.param IS GREATER THAN 20170728", or any others as and when they are needed. I.e., this is saying 'only target visitors who signed up after 28th July 2017'.After tes...

"Clicked on mbox" details chrisw78940856 - Adobe Target
Hi,I'm using the form based editor for an AB test, and am measuring click through rate on plain text containing a link vs. a banner.I just want to confirm exactly when the success metric option "Clicked on mbox" triggers? As the link in the plain text variation only covers a small portion of the text within the mbox, would the metric only track on click of the link, or anywhere within the mbox?That is, would the metric trigger if I click anywhere in the bold code in 1), or anywhere in the bold c...

Nevermind, issue resolved.Leaving this up in case anyone encounters something similar: the activity in question didn't work because it had apostrophes in its name.

Campaigns Not displaying? chrisw78940856 - Adobe Target
Hi,In the last day or so we've noticed that some of the content we're serving through Target is no longer showing.We have an XT activity set up and live. The preview link shows the content as expected, but despite my meeting the audience criteria, I'm not seeing the content in a live environment. We're also not seeing any clicks on the mbox since yesterday, despite seeing a lot of visitors enter the activity.Interestingly, the mbox being used is appearing in the debugger tool, and says it is sho...

Re: Profile Script Lifetime chrisw78940856 - Adobe Target
Hi Løjmann,Thanks for replying. I have tried testing this and it doesn't appear to be working. The test only appears when I go to the login page in the same session.Also, I tried adding the following to the test to see if anything was being passed:var param = user.get('Has_Seen_Login_Page') alert(param);So far this has not worked, even in the same session and with other user parameters, such as IP: [img]https://content.screencast.com/users/Mezzo_Chris/folders/Jing/media/ae57b524-0224-4c94-b82b-a...

Profile Script Lifetime chrisw78940856 - Adobe Target
I recently created a profile script which captures whether or not the login page has been seen by a visitor: if(page.url.indexOf("/login") > -1){ return "hasSeenLogin"} Checking with mboxTrace, I have seen the user parameter working within the same session as the login page view. However when I go back and check again a day or so later, I can no longer see the parameter. Is there a reason that it is not remaining for 14 days as per this: https://marketing.adobe.com/resources/help/en_US/target/ov...

Data Layer - Custom conversion tracking chrisw78940856 - Adobe Target
Hi, potentially very niche conversion tracking logic below:We have a series of actions on our secure site which do not trigger a confirmation page on a uniquely identifiable URL. Instead, the visitor is taken back to the account overview page, and shown a 'Successful transaction' type message (within a div).The confirmation message is the only evidence of the conversion, and appears only when a transaction is completed on the previous page. The div is removed from the HTML after a couple seconds...

Re: Audience Setup: ERROR Failed to fetch mbox parameters from server chrisw78940856 - Adobe Target
Hi Parit,Hope everything is going well.Just wanted to let you know that despite still seeing the same error message, I can see the full list of parameters associated with an mbox when I look in 'Available Tokens' under Profile scripts.I'm not 100% confident using Standard to build campaigns instead of Classic yet, as I don't know what this error might entail. Have you had any luck resolving the issue?Thanks,Chris

Re: Multiple Global Mboxes chrisw78940856 - Adobe Target
Thanks, Kimen.I see that targetPageParams() sits under at.js documentation. Can it also be used with the mbox.js script?If not, is the alternative mboxUpdate(), using the global mbox name?Thanks,Chris

Cross-domain tracking chrisw78940856 - Adobe Target
Hi,I'm hoping to build a campaign on our marketing site that encourages existing users to complete an action on our secure site, which exists on a separate web domain.Both domains contain the Target tag under the same account, so is it possible to capture a conversion metric for a test that starts on domain A with the conversion occurring on domain B?Many thanks,Chris

Multiple Global Mboxes chrisw78940856 - Adobe Target
Hi, hope someone can help me with this.Our Target account is set across multiple domains, and activities on some of these domains are entirely separate from activity on others.We want to pass parameters in to the global mbox only for the domains where those parameters can be put to use. Is it therefore possible to define different global mboxes for each of these domains? I haven't been able to find any info explicitly stating this.That is, when adding mbox.js tag on to each domain, could I edit ...

Hi,We've recently moved to creating campaigns in the Target Standard UI, where previously we have been doing everything via Target Classic.I've come across an issue where I'm unable to create a new Audience in Standard based on an mbox parameter. The mbox appears in the 'Search mbox' field, but when I click the drop down for 'Search parameter', I see the following error message: https://www.screencast.com/t/jl8vGk1jnCKKI know that the mbox has multiple parameters assigned, and I can access them ...

Validate Audience Targeting chrisw78940856 - Adobe Target
Hi,I'm hoping to run a campaign which targets specific visitor IDs (defined as an mbox parameter), and as such I can't spoof the value for myself.My current proposed method involves copying the campaign, targeting it for my mbox parameter ID ONLY, and launching the activity. If that works then the main campaign should be good to go.Is there any way that I could check the audience targeting without having to push any activities live?Thanks,Chris

Profile script: Has seen pages? chrisw78940856 - Adobe Target
Hi,I'm hoping to set up a profile script to create a user parameter which tells me whether or not the user has viewed a certain set of pages before. This must be across sessions.At the moment I have this for my script called 'LastContentPage: if(!user.get("LastContentPage")){ if(mbox.name==="target-global-mbox" && page.url.includes("contentpage")){ return 'Content Page';}The script is referring to the global mbox to grab a page URL. If that URL contains 'contentpage', then a parameter is passed ...

Non-URL-Based Multipage Activities chrisw78940856 - Adobe Target
Hi, I'm trying to create an AB test to run on multiple pages that don't fall in to a usable blanket URL structure. As such, the 'Configure > URL' feature in the Visual Experience Composer won't cover all cases.I've added the preview URL string to view my test content on various pages, and it works across all of them with no issues.Is there a way to target tests based on consistent in-page content instead of URL?

Right click tracking chrisw78940856 - Adobe Target
Hi,I have a metric which tracks on click of a link on page (no problems there), but I'm not sure whether this is still triggered if I right click and, say, open the link in a new tab.Is right clicking and opening in a new tab tracked, or does that require separate implementation?So far I've struggled to find an environment where I can QA metrics before pushing experiments live - what's the best way to go about this?Thanks,Chris
