How to find the Launch extensions in the Adobe Real-time CDP interface
To find the Launch extensions in the Adobe Real-time CDP interface, browse to Destinations > Catalog and select Extensions in the Types filter.
How Launch extensions work
Launch extensions forward raw event data to several types of destinations. Think of extensions as an Event Forwarding type of destination. This is a simpler type of integration with destination platforms, which only forwards raw event data. Examples of those are the Gainsight personalization extension or the Confirmit Voice of the Customer extension .
Profile/Segment Export destinations in Adobe Real-time Customer Data Platform capture event data, combine it with other data sources, apply segmentation, and export segments and qualified profiles to destinations. Examples of those are the Amazon S3 cloud storage destination or the Google Display & Video 360 advertising destination .
Benefits of using Launch extensions
Experience Platform Launch is free for existing Experience Cloud customers. Launch simplifies tag deployment on your website via easy-to-use extensions that you can install, configure, update, and delete. Launch has a small footprint on your website and allows you to keep your pages loading quickly.
While you cannot activate segments to Launch extensions, you can set up rules to only forward event data in certain situations. Read more below.
You can create rules that determine when to forward event data to extensions. This powerful functionality enables you to forward event data only in certain situations as opposed to sending event data on every interaction. For more information, read about rules in the Launch documentation .
Example use cases for Launch extensions
Launch extensions enable you to satisfy various customer use cases. Some example use cases for using Launch extensions are:
- You can send website or native app data to Facebook via the Facebook pixel extension. Facebook Pixel indicates which parts of your site or app a visitor navigated to, forwards that information to Facebook, and you can retarget your visitor via Facebook.
- You can forward event data from your websites and apps into Google Analytics to analyze and make decisions based on that data.
- You could turn on a client-side chatbox app at the right time based on how your users are interacting with your pages, according to rules you set up in Launch.
