Introducing The SDI Toolkit
Oh, that moment when Q gives 007 the iconic 1964 Aston Martin DB5, the first of so many vehicles equipped to the hilt with extra special features. Thank
You’ll find the SDI Toolkit in the Extension Catalog of Launch, by Adobe. Just look for the SDI rocketship or enter “SDI Toolkit” in the search box. I know what you’re thinking… “Goodness that’s sexy, but what can it do?”
Bond was probably thinking the same thing. Rest assured, because that unassuming car came from Q, and this unassuming extension was developed by Search Discovery, wondrous features await!
The SDI Toolkit extends Launch, by Adobe by providing four brand new Data Element types.
The Data Element Translator is the first of these new types. This one allows you to pipe the value of one data element (like a country code) through a table lookup to produce the appropriate matched value. Below is an example of the %dd_country% data element’s value as the driver to produce the country-specific Adwords Conversion ID. Now we use %Adwords_Conversion_ID% in our custom HTML, and we have a single rule in place of seven, without writing a line of code.
We see this as being super helpful when piped through the Data Element Translator to set pixel account IDs and such, based on the operating environment. Maybe this feature’s not as surprising as concealed headlamp machine guns, but it gets the job done.
The SDI Toolkit provides Swipe Events for Mobile
Up? Down? Right? Left? Eject Passenger? Q covered it all for 007 in the DB5. The SDI Toolkit covers the first four when it comes to the new Swipe Gesture event type. Now you can write rules triggered by any (or all) of the four Swipe gestures on mobile. If you like this, Swipe Right, and we’ll know that you did!
The SDI Toolkit provides four new Actions
Launch, by Adobe has pretty much covered all the bases when it comes to referencing persisted values. Adobe DTM had cookie-based data elements. Launch now has sessionStorage- and localStorage-based data elements. With the SDI Toolkit, four new Action types allow you to use the UI and fully configure the setting and removal of cookies, sessionStorage, and localStorage values. We’ve put all the controls right at your fingertips.
