Send POI entry and exit data to Analytics places-data-analytics

This section assumes that you have Places Service implemented in your application. For more information about implementing Places Service, see Places extensions.

After Places Service sends the entry and exit events, you can create rules in Experience Platform Launch to send Places Service data to Adobe Analytics. To create this type of rule, select your property in Launch and complete the following steps:

1. Create a rule

  1. On the Rules tab, click Create New Rule.

    Remember the following information:

    • If you do not have existing rules for this property, the Create New Rule button will be in the middle of the screen.
    • If your property has rules, the Create New Rule button will be in the top right of the screen.

2. Select an event

  1. Type a meaningful name for your rule.

    This way, the rule will be easily recognizable in your list of Rules. In this example, the Rule is named Send Data to Analytics.

  2. In the Events section, click Add.

  3. From the Extension drop-down list, select Places Service.

  4. From the Event Type drop-down list, select Enter POI.

  5. Click Keep Changes.

    "select an event"

3. Add conditions

Complete this step to add Conditions to your rule. Otherwise, skip to Define the Action below.

In this example, a Condition is created that causes the Rule to trigger only when the Current POI’s name equals My POI.

  1. Under the Conditions section, click Add.

  2. From the Extension drop-down list, select Places Service.

  3. From the Condition Type drop-down list, select Name.

  4. In the right pane, in the text field, enter My POI.

  5. Click Keep Changes.

    "set a condition"

4. Define the action

  1. Under the Actions section, click Add.

  2. From the Extension drop-down list, select Adobe Analytics.

  3. From the Action Type drop-down list, select Track.

  4. On the right pane, add the action or state that you want to send to Analytics.

    You can also choose to add any additional context data to this request. Remember that you can use data elements to get this data dynamically from the SDK.

  5. Click Keep Changes.

    In the following example, a TrackAction call is sent to Analytics with additional context data of equal to the name of the POI that triggered this entry event:

    "set an action"

5. Save the rule and rebuild your property

After you complete your configuration, verify that your Rule looks like the following image:

"rule is created"

  1. Click Save

  2. Rebuild your Launch property and deploy it to the correct environment.
