Personalized contents are everywhere now. In order to drive more sales or show the best contents to users, marketers define strategies on to allow users to be exposed to contents or offers which are meant for them. I had a requirement where I had to track the user content flow on one of our sites.
From my last few posts, I have been talking about the Sitecore Tasks. Using the Sitecore Tasks allow a user to either set the task as synchronous or asynchronous. It is the
Sitecore.Tasks.DatabaseAgent which runs at a define interval and loops through the container
Following recent Sitecore versions, we have seen that Sitecore has integrated the Job.aspx page which is found under the admin folder. This is very useful to content authors, developers because it helps to see what current tasks are being executed. However, for me, I see a missing feature: Who has triggered that task?
Has anyone ever wanted to know whether the implementation of a personalization section is working properly? Nowadays, everyone has a personalized profile. By that, I mean, if you go on Netflix or Amazon, every user has their own profile with personalized content. Example, if I recently bought or view products about Music, Amazon will recommend me to check other products which are meant for music.
Has it ever happened that you have 2 schedule tasks but needs them to run sequentially? Example, suppose you have agent A which needs to create and update items and another agent B to publish the site. Normally, you will want that the agent B triggers after agent A has completed. This will not be the case if the agents were configured in the configuration files. When agents are in the configuration files only, those will run asynchronously.
It’s been a while since my last post since I was busy with the deployment of a new platform. So, today, I will be sharing my adventure with Sitecore 9. I wanted to get accustom with Sitecore JSS and since JSS requires Sitecore 9, I had to install a Sitecore instance first.
Sitecore Goals are activities that visitors can perform on your website. You create goals to track and measure how visitors engage with the website and campaigns. Normally, a user may trigger a goal when performing a successful registration or buy it now. You may receive some requirements from clients which say that goal should be triggered only once per user.
