This guide is meant to walk you through the Taplytics initialization. Once you've completed the steps in this guide you will be able to use the Taplytics Dashboard to do things like, create a simple visual experiment and send a simple push.
We will go over some best practices and quality testing ideas to help you better understand the flexibility of the TL platform.
We suggest implementing this guide one step at a time as it's the best way to familiarize yourself with the Taplytics platform.
1. Install the SDK
Please follow the steps outlined in the implementation guides linked below.
If you've set up the SDK correctly, you'll see the Taplytics Dashboard which looks like this:
If you are still seeing the screen below and have installed the SDK correctly, please reach out to us and we will get you sorted out.
2. Setting User Attributes
Setting user attributes allows you to customize how you segment your users on a very granular level. We recommend at least setting a unique userID to track your users.
3. Pairing your phone with Taplytics
There are a few reasons you'd want to ensure that Advanced Pairing and pairing in general works on your device.
First, it's the only way to use the visual editor which is a great way to start experiments that don't require any code to set up. Second, it's an easy way to load code variables onto the Taplytics dashboard for use in experiments.
We recommend setting up advanced pairing when installing the SDK to allow for more flexibility of users being able to pair when they need to.
How to set up Advanced Pairing
4. Setting up your first visual experiment
We have a great video to walk you through setting up your first visual experiment. Remember no coding or engineers need to be involved to start! Just ensure your device is paired.
A quick way to QA that this is working is to implement the "getRunningExperimentsandVariations" method in your code.
5. Sending a Push Notification
Great! You should have completed a simple visual experiment, set up goals and your distribution. To get started, please refer to the docs below to ensure Push notifications are enabled in your app.
The below article will walk you through setting up and sending out your first push notification!
