This blog at Bouteous describes the issue we're seeing - it's probably been going on longer than anyone would like to admit.
Would anyone have any comments how the latest TiQ Adobe Analytics template and latest AppMeasurement code can be configured to take advantage of s.useBeacon with s.tl() link track calls? I can see it in the latest TiQ template, but am not quite sure if it's used automatically or requires configuration/customization.
Thanks for ideas!
The blog you referred to discusses the potential issue of canceled Adobe Analytics beacons when using the s.tl() link track calls in combination with the navigator.sendBeacon method. The latest TiQ Adobe Analytics template and AppMeasurement code should provide the necessary support for using s.useBeacon with the s.tl() link track calls.
The s.useBeacon variable can be set to true in the Adobe Analytics tag configuration to enable the use of the navigator.sendBeacon method for link tracking calls. By default, the s.useBeacon variable should be set to false. Here's how you can configure it within the TiQ Adobe Analytics template:
- Navigate to the Adobe Analytics tag in your TiQ account.
- Open the "Advanced Settings" section.
- Locate the "Beacon settings" subsection.
- Enable the "Use Beacon API for Link Tracking Calls" option.
By enabling this option, the s.useBeacon variable will be set to true, and the navigator.sendBeacon method will be used for link tracking calls (s.tl() calls) instead of the traditional image request method. This should help in preventing the issue of canceled Adobe Analytics beacons.
