Adding more tracking time periods for contact policies

Version:

Only available versions of this content are shown in the dropdown

Contact policies track responses to actions over a specific period of time. By default, responses are tracked over a period of 7 or 30 days. If required, you can add more tracking periods by creating a new Interaction History time period, and then updating the part of the Next-Best-Action Strategy that references it.

Contact policies determine when and for how long an action or a group of actions should no longer be shown to the customer. For example, if a customer views an ad for an action five times without responding, the add will no longer be shown to that customer over the next seven days. Suppressing or pausing an action prevents over-saturation by limiting the number of times that a customer is exposed to the same action.
