Custom Events - Saving Products for Recommendations

Saving Products for Recommendations

If you want to use products passed in an event inside the recommendation blocks, you need to save the products from the event settings page.  

To save the products from the custom event settings page, you will need to:

1. Click on "Save Products"
2. Choose one of the available options below
3. Click on "Save"

  • Replace Existing: Products sent in the last event payload will be saved and will replace any existing products.
  • Append to existing: In this mode you can save up to last 1000 products per event per user.
  • Save on timeline: Similar to Append to Existing in this mode you can save up to last 1000 products per event per user but on a timeline so you can retrieve products based on start and end date range.

Note: This configuration is only available for Super Admins

 

Use case example:

Event A comes in @ 2pm today and contains prod_ids 2,3,4
Event A comes in @ 4pm today and contains prod_
ids 5,6,7 

Replace existing: When we pull in Recommendations at 5pm for Event A, it will retrieve prod_ids 5,6,7.

Append to existing: When we pull in Recommendations at 5pm for Event A, it will retrieve prod_ids 2,3,4 
5,6,7.

Save on timeline: prod_ids 2,3,4,5,6,7 from Event A will be saved on a timeline. They can be retrieved in the studio by specifying what date range to filter on.
