Using the Integration

Once deployed, you can begin using the additional capabilities that this integration provides.

Note: It can take 24-48 hours to begin seeing some of the Dynamic Signal data within your Adobe Analytics reporting.

The following actions result in added value from this integration within Adobe Analytics.

Viewing Traffic and Conversion Metrics by Dynamic Signal Dimensions

Example of a report in Adobe Analytics.

This integration provides new dimensions that become available as Adobe Analytics reports. The report below is an example of analyzing both Visits and a conversion metric (Registrations) that have been broken down by Article Title.

Segmenting by Dynamic Signal Dimensions

Examples of segments based on Dynamic Signal dimensions.

A primary feature of this integration is the ability to create Adobe Analytics segments based on the integrated reporting dimensions. For example, you can build a segment that includes only Visits originating from a specific VoiceStorm Community. You might call this “Visits driven from SuperFans”. This segment definition might look like the following.
