REI - getting 404 when using Social Proof

REI ran into an issue where they are seeing 404 errors sometimes when making the Social Proof call. It looks like the first time they land on a PDP; they’re getting a 404 error but if they refresh or load a second PDP, the social proof messaging shows up as expected.

Not generally available yet.




Fix Model Browser image size and runtimeStrategies.jsp

Image height has been changed to 200 px.

runtimeStrategies.jsp name is changed to configurableStrategies.jsp

configurableStrategies and home links are added as headers to the Model Browser page.



Enterprise Dashboard:

No results for first search in Search Test Drive causing no results for subsequent searches

On the Search Test Drive page, if the first search gets no results, then the subsequent searches also get no results without any message on the screen. The user was supposed to refresh the screen for every search. This issue has been fixed.



Enterprise Dashboard:

The ‘Region’ dropdown list is not lining up to the left in the second row

On the Search Test Drive page, the ‘Region’ dropdown list was placed in the second row and it was not aligned with the first row. Hence the ‘Region’ dropdown list is now placed in the first row and aligned with ‘Language’ dropdown list.



Enterprise Dashboard:

Changing Personalization Configuration changes the Placement Selection

The placement selection is being changed by changing the personalization settings. The placement selection should only be changed when user changes it. This is due to the language and placement values were changing automatically to default values by changing the personalization values like enabling/disabling or any changes using the sliders. This issue has been fixed.



Enterprise Dashboard:

Entire site name is not legible in new portal layout

In the new portal layout, user is unable to see the entire site name even after scrolling to the extreme right in the window. For example, in ECI groceries sites, user is unable to see the last part which indicates if it is a Portuguese or Spanish site with suffixes ‘_PT’ and ‘_ES’.

Hence this issue has been fixed by showing full site name in the search suggestions and tooltips are provided for selected and non-selected site names.



Social Proof:

Social Proof message is always shown above the provided selector

The Social Proof message was shown above the provided selector, that is on the top of the locator even though different positions like bottom or middle were selected. This issue has been fixed now.

Not generally available yet



Engage placement based on Scottish geographic segments does not get triggered

Engage placement based on geographic segments does not get triggered. This issue has been fixed now by updating the region codes data.
If you have a segment defined by geography using ‘State/Region’ that was not working as expected, you will need to modify your segment by removing the current selection and then reselecting the option again so that it uses the updated region codes.
