Rookie Contributor

Hello everyone,

 

is it mandatory that my variables are called page_type and event_name if I use the verify tool?

 

Thanks in advance!

Hi,

The utility requires the variables "page_type" and "event_name" to be present on the page

For page tracking you do need "page_type" and for any link/event tracking you will need "event_name" passed through.

 

I'm afraid these variable names can not be changed.

Hi @MKT

 

So a brief outline of these variables would be:

 

page_type = type of page being viewed .e.g home/order/confirmation/search....

event_name = the name of the event that has happended. E.g. if you click on a "Add to Basket" button the event might be 'add_to_basket'

 

Hope this helps.

I'm wondering if there is any documentation about the value we have to use with these buil-it variables. I also would like to know how many variables they are.

Most of (if not all) data variables that we use are defined in the Data bundle part of the UI.
