Custom fields and selector's updating

Some of the selectors we have created need to be updated so that the information on subscriber behavior is consistent with the current state, like:

  • last visited category (name)

  • recently visited links

  • date of the last visit (does not require a selector)

To do this, you need an automation scenario.

The custom fields you created and their updates will be used in the automation scenarios. More on this topic in the Automationchapter. 


2. The scenario starts with naming and choosing the appropriate Trigger event. It will always be the end of the session, with the exception of the welcome message, when you select Start session.

3. In the Scenario Wizard that appears, fill in the Name of the automation, eg. Data update

4. Specify the Renew flow time to 5 minutes.

5. Then click Next in the scenario tree. From the available behaviors, select Action> Update.

6. Click the Custom field> Add new button.

7. Here, specify the type of element to be downloaded from the page. It can be:  

  • text - when, for example, you want to refer to recent category names;

  • numerical value - to use, for example, when referring to the value of a cart;

  • date - when you want to update the date of the last visit;

  • Boolean (yes/no value) - when reference is made to an item clicked on the page.

Careful! The names of the additional fields should be different than the names of the selectors.

8. Save the custom fields.

9. After closing the Creator Wizard window, update the custom fields you created by clicking Update. Then enter the name of your variable in curly brackets, like {last_category}}
