Pre-requisites

Before reading this document, please make sure that:

  • You have access to the Adtag Platform
  • You have installed the notification tutorial and in-app action tutorial applications on your device to perform live tests
  • You have a BLE beacon, configured on your account, to interact with the applications

Accessing the Adtag Platform

Depending on your type of account, you should have access to one of the following Adtag environments. Click on the corresponding link to access the platform, then enter your login & password:

WARNING:

If you have access to different Adtag platforms, make sure that your app is configured to work on the same environment as the Adtag platform you are using.

Selecting a point and editing its associated content

  • Either in the MAP or LIST view, click on a point of your choosing

  • This opens a slider menu, which contains all of the characteristics of the point, grouped in tabs.

  • Click on Edit

  • Click on the Sdk Content tab to manage the content pushed through BLE beacons.

  • Update the notification and in-app action parameters, by modifying their title and description.
  • Click on Save to validate your changes

Testing the update

  • Kill both tutorial applications
  • Go through the testing process to check that the content of the notification and the in-app action have been updated

Configuring the in-app Action Parameters

The in-opp Action parameters category allows you to define and manage a display strategy for your in-app actions. In particular:

  • Action: you can enter free text to match the action that you have implemented at SDK level
  • Default Condition: if you have chosen to use the built-in proximity conditions, you can select the appropriate rule in the drop-down list (<=, =>, or =), which will work in conjunction with the selected Range
  • Custom Condition: if you create your own, custom in-app action condition, populate this text field with the matching key that you have implemented at SDK level
  • Range: proximity zone applicable to the in-app action (the in-app action will only be triggered if the smartphone is in the right range around the beacon) – 3 predefined values: IMMEDIATE, NEAR, FAR

Learn more about in-app actions in the in-app action process tutorial.
