Hey Rick,

 

There is a post on this - worked like a charm for me.

I have a further question about this.

The link above mentioned the data that would be captured, but it doesn't seem like the variables listed in the code to capture these items match up in sequence. Is the following correct?

* get visit number = _visit_number ??
* get new repeat = _visit_type ??
* get visit start = _visit_start ??
* get action depth = _visit_page_num ??
* days since last visit = _visit_return ??

Thanks.

I have not yet implemented this extension, but I can already see the Visit Number report populating on its own, without my having set up any variables. Any idea why?

Not really sure. I would look to the Tealium folks on this.

Do you have any other extensions running that would be collecting it?

In our case - we had some custom plugins from Omniture in some of our Tealium extensions from our initial implementation that would have otherwise been included in our s_code. These extensions were collecting our visit details.

With the recent visits details extension we were able to replace that. I don't recall the visits number ever populating on its own.

Hi James,

This post helped me even today and was just implemented to check the functionality. Few stuff are workign fine as mentioned and two data layer (Variables ) are not capturing data. 

_visit_page_num

_visit_start

Therefore, what could it cause to fire the above mentioned variable. Was trying to change all stuff and still I dont see the respective data.

Could you please assit me to fire the above mentioned visits for us. Thanks much!
