One of the central themes of Tracking First’s Adobe-specific solution is that it uses your own SAINT data to guide you in creating and classifying new codes. But what if your existing SAINT table is a mess? Or what if a renegade Marketer has created a variety of rogue codes that don’t comply with your syntax or classification standards? In these cases, you’ll need to do some SAINT table maintenance, to make sure that these problems don’t bubble up to the reporting level.
SiteCatalyst Administrators have long had to manage clean-up work on their SAINT tables by downloading Excel files, editing them, and uploading them through Adobe’s manual process. Tracking First’s classification tools aren’t just for new codes; they also extend to your entire SAINT tables, no matter how big.
The same table functionality used to classify new codes can also be used by Tracking First administrators to target and modify classifications of existing codes. Advanced search functions let you easily triangulate on the specific codes you want to fix. What’s more, just as with new codes, the changes are transmitted directly to Adobe’s SAINT structure from the web application.
While the tasks of creating new codes can be distributed across the organization, we recommend that the table maintenance tools be limited to just a few people. For that reason, only those that you designate as Tracking First administrators have the keys to maintain existing codes.
