Product Experience

Begin setting up your Flutter app's Product Experience!

πŸ“˜

Product Experience is available for integration from CEE SDK v3.2.6 onwards.

Installing PX Flutter Plugin

Implement plugin in pubspecs.yaml file under dependencies:

By using pub

smartech_nudges: ^1.0.7

For Flutter SDK Setup

Step 1 : Add SmartechPxWidget as topmost widget

Wrap your topmost class of application widget(MaterialApp/ CupertinoApp/ WidgetsApp) with SmartechPxWidget in your main.dart file of your project.

Widget build(BuildContext context) {
  // SmartechPxWidget is a Px Customized widget which needs to be wrapped around MaterialApp
   return SmartechPxWidget(
     child: MaterialApp(
       home: const MyHomePage(),
     ),
   );
 }

Step 2 : Add PxNavigationObserver in properties of MaterialApp

Add PxNavigationObserver() as property of navigatorObserver (Property of MaterialApp/ CupertinoApp/ WidgetsApp)

Widget build(BuildContext context) {
   return SmartechPxWidget(
     child: MaterialApp(
       //navigationObservers is a property of MaterialApp
       // PxNavigationObserver() should be added to list of navigationObservers
       navigatorObservers: [PxNavigationObserver()],
       home: const MyHomePage(),
     ),
   );
 }

Step 3: To Send Events to Netcore

For sending events with Smartech to show nudges can be done at any point of the app you require. We recommend the below code if you want to see PNC Nudges.

NetcorePX.instance.logEvent("event_name", "smt", {});

Setting up page load events
You may use page load/page view events as triggers for Product Experience. You can check here on how to set them up

Step 4: Setting up Test Device

Product Experience dashboard lets you create Test Devices for your Android or iOS devices. Devices that are a part of your Test Devices will receive changes made on PX panel immediately. For all other devices, the data is cached locally to provide high availability.

Step 5:Audience targeting based on user profile data

Server-side segments
If you want to use server-side segments as the target audience - please follow the steps given for user tracking & event tracking.

This will send data back to the CEE servers and allow you to create segments based on user profile attributes & event payload data.

πŸ‘

We recommend that you implement user tracking step if you plan to use feedback nudges

Client-side user profile data
If you want to keep user profile data at the client-side and use this information to target specific user ids, please follow the below steps.

πŸ‘

Client side user profile data is local to the device and none of the PII Information is shared back to Netcore servers.

  • User ID
    This is a pre-defined attribute that can be the user's email id, account id, or any other identifier that you use to uniquely identify a user. If not set, CEE SDK will generate a device-specific unique string to uniquely identify the app user.
NetcorePX.instance.setUserId("user_id");

Clear Identity

This will clear the user’s identity and after this, all activity will be tracked as anonymous.

NetcorePX.instance.clearUserId();
  • Custom Attributes

Custom Attributes allow you to target users based on any data that you want. For example, to set a value for a custom attribute called β€œage”, you need to do the following:

// Use this for passing single attribute
NetcorePX.instance.putAttribute("emailId","[email protected]"};

// Use this for passing multiple attribtes                                
Map<String,Object> attributes = {"name":"netcore","age":"27"};
NetcorePX.instance.putAttributes(attributes);

For Android SDK Setup

Step 1: Define Latest SDK version

Add below line in gradle.properties

# Version of smartech base SDK to use with Flutter
SMARTECH_PX_SDK_VERSION=<<nudge_sdk_android_version>>

Step 2: Integrate the latest CEE SDK

Put your Smartech panel's app Id, Hansel App ID & Hansel App Key in the meta-data tag of your application's manifest file, it should be added within the application tag, but outside of any component within the application tag.
To get Smartech App ID, follow steps given here , else please get in touch with your account manager to get the value of SMT_APP_ID , HANSEL_APP_ID & HANSEL_APP_KEY.

     </application>				
				...
				<meta-data
   				android:name="SMT_APP_ID"
   				android:value="YOUR_SMARTECH_APP_ID_HERE" />

        <meta-data
            android:name="HANSEL_APP_ID"
            android:value="<hansel_app_id>" />

        <meta-data
            android:name="HANSEL_APP_KEY"
            android:value="<hansel_app_key>" />
      	...
    </application>

Step 3: To initiate the PX SDK, Add below code in MyApplication.kt file

class MyApplication : FlutterApplication(){
    override fun onCreate() {
        super.onCreate()
          
        // Initialize Smartech Sdk
        Smartech.getInstance(WeakReference(applicationContext)).initializeSdk(this)
    }

    override fun onTerminate() {
        super.onTerminate()
        Log.d("onTerminate", "onTerminate")
    }
}
override fun onCreate() {
	super.onCreate()
	SmartechBasePlugin.Companion.initializePlugin(this);
}

Note : Make sure you have registered your Application class in the Application tag inside the AndroidManifest.xml file.

<application 
    android:name=".MyApplication">

For iOS SDK Setup

Step 1: Updating Capabilities

In Xcode target, go to Signing & Capabilities, and click on "+Capability" as shown below, if you do not have any "Keychain Groups" setup. If you do, you can directly proceed to the next step.

1812

Click on "+Capability" to get started

Add a new Keychain Group (as shown below) and enter hansel_public_key (Hansel uses KeyChain Sharing for decryption of Hansel SDK's responses)

1650

Create a new Keychain Group with the value as shown

Step 2: Configure Apps Info.plist with Hansel Keys

You need to add a key named HanselKeys with type Dictionary. Init add the following keys and values with their types.

KeyData typeDescription
HanselAppIdStringPlease get in touch with your account manager to create app on Hansel dashboard
HanselAppkeyStringPlease get in touch with your account manager to create app on Hansel dashboard

Following is the source code snippet of apps Info.plist for key Hansel Keys:

<key>HanselKeys</key>
	<dict>
		<key>HanselAppId</key>
		<string>value of app id</string>
    <key>HanselAppKey</key>
		<string>value of app key</string>
	</dict>

Following is the image representation of apps Info.plist for key HanselKeys:
