Using items held in the Values folder of the PeopleStage Library you can add free text, variables and system information into your Content step.
User Input Values and the Content step
The User Input folder contains the free text options you can select from to add, for example, Text, Date or Numerical data into your content, when required.
To add free Text:
- Drag and drop the Text item from the Library onto the Content step
- Label the Content Field as Text
- Label the Content Item as Welcome to the Club
Double-clicking on a hotspot within the Content step will, by default, also apply a free Text Content Field.
Predefined Values and the Content step
The contents of this folder relate to any voucher codes set up in the Voucher Set Editor. The Voucher Set Editor is an administrative function found in the File menu.
Predefined Values are available as a result of additional configuration, in the example above a Voucher Code has been added and the Campaign Type has been defined as an External Data Source
To add Voucher Codes into your Content step:
- Drag and drop the relevant Voucher Code onto the Content step from the Library
System Values and the Content step
System values can be used on the Content step to ensure that the output file contains the Run date or the Run Number of the campaign. This may be required for audit purposes.
- Drag and drop the Run Date onto the Content step
To ensure that both the Run Date and Run Number are output together:
- Drag and drop Run Number from the Library and alongside the Run Date
FastStats Variables and the Content step
The Variables folder contains the System explorer view from within your FastStats system. All variables from all database tables can be found here, including Virtual Variables. These can be dragged and dropped onto the Content step to ensure that each individual is output with the selected variable attribute. If the individual does not have a variable value, PeopleStage will output the word Unclassified.
If a transactional level variable is used on the Content step, options occur to ensure that PeopleStage outputs the desired transactional details for each individual. In the example below, adding Booking Date onto the Content step then requires you to define – using the left-hand drop-down - which Booking Date out of all the bookings made by the individual you wish to reference and output; for example - earliest, latest or costliest.
These Nper rules are defined in the File menu Administration function One Per Aggregations Editor.
The right-hand box allows you to apply a transactional filter selection. By default, this filter is set to All Bookings but you can simply drag and drop your FastStats transactional filter selection (from Audiences) onto this box to override the default. For example, applying a selection that identifies bookings to Europe, would allow PeopleStage to reference a person’s earliest/latest/costliest booking to a European destination.
If there are multiple bookings for an individual within the filter selection, PeopleStage randomly selects which one to display. Consistent output can be achieved by using the Nper menu consistently across the booking variables added to the Content step. The only case where this may not yield consistent information regarding one booking, is when multiple bookings meet the Nper criteria - e.g. two bookings made at exactly the same time potentially makes both the ‘most recent’; in this case, PeopleStage will default to randomly choosing which of the two bookings to display
