NEW FEATURE

Monthly Usage Graph

There is a new section in the Admin Interface that displays your monthly usage, with the number of sessions (Web) and/or Daily Active Users (Apps) for a given configuration (Settings ID). Find it in the Account Settings under the Usage tab. Have a look!

A/B TESTING

Improve your CMP performance with A/B testing, now with Preview feature

3-AB Testing Preview@2X

Maximize your users’ interactions and consents with the Usercentrics A/B Testing feature. Test different variants of your CMP with the integrated A/B testing or third-party tools like trbo, Optimizely or Kameleoon.

 

To perform an A/B test, simply follow three easy steps:

  1. activate the A/B testing feature
  2. define the variants
  3. perform the A/B test

Then you will be able to find your best performing CMP setup.

 

Our native A/B testing feature now offers a preview function for your A/B variants on the preview page via a dedicated selector. Be confident you’re testing exactly what you want before going live.

 

Don’t leave your CMP performance to chance. Take charge of your CMP by leveraging A/B testing data to optimize your opt-in rate.

 

Launch your first A/B test by following the steps in our technical documentation

NEW FEATURE

Data Subject Requests

5-DSR@2X

We’ve now made it possible to process and manage Data Subject Requests from the Admin Interface. Please contact our Customer Support team or your Customer Success Manager to get it set up. Once enabled, you’ll see DSRs in the left menu with the DSR form and dashboard tabs.

DPS SCANNER

Automated Category Suggestions

4-Autocategorization@2X

There are many types of Data Processing Services (DPS) available, so tools and automations can really save you a lot of time in managing the ones you use. To help with your set up of Data Processing Services, we now include category suggestions in the DPS Scanner. Once the initial scan is complete upon setup, you’ll be able to access it under DPS Overview. If there is a relevant category suggestion available, it will appear in the Category column. These automated suggestions can really save you a lot of time managing services efficiently.

VERSION HISTORY

Improved User Experience

6-History@2X

We’ve improved the UI of the Version History component to make it more readable and easier to navigate. It places more focus on changes that have happened. We want you to be able to access and manage your data as efficiently as possible, so you can focus on your core business and achieve optimizations faster. If you prefer to see the full version history file instead this view can easily be shown.

GOOGLE ANALYTICS

SDP Support for Google Analytics 4

2-GA4@2X

We have now released support for Google Analytics 4 implementation via Smart Data Protector. Get all the details in our Smart Data Protector documentation.

NEW CONSENT API

We will soon be releasing a new Consent API. Please whitelist the relevant domains in your CSP before September 15th, 2022.

Deprecation of Data Processing Services

Updates on Deprecation Services

Legal Updates@2x

Don’t forget!

 

To ensure the greatest accuracy for your Consent Management Platform and the Data Processing Services we provide, we have deprecated certain Data Processing Service templates. These templates are mainly duplicates of existing services and will no longer show in the Admin Interface, so can no longer be selected from our database.

 

Your current implementation will not be affected. However, from now on, legal updates will only be done for the new templates, so we highly recommend changing any affected templates.

 

A guide with details about the customizations can be found here.

 

An overview of all deprecated templates can be found here.

 

For Tech Partners, we recommend replacing old templates in all affected CMP configurations with the new updated templates.

 

Please find the technical details on the adjustments here.
