Quirks

This section covers how to configure, manage, and use quirks to classify visitors.

tip

For background information about what quirks are and examples of how they are used, see the classification capabilities section.

Add quirk

  1. In Uniform, open your project.

  2. Navigate to Personalization > Quirks.

    no-quirks
  3. Click the red (+) button.

    quirk-config
  4. Enter the following values:

    FieldDescription
    NameName that describes the signal.
    Public IDValue that uniquely identifies the quirk.
    DescriptionA more detailed description of the quirk.
    Data Type
    • Text Field: When the quirk is used to configure personalization, the quirk value can be any text value.
    • List: When the quirk is used to configure personalization, the quirk value is selected from a list of predefined values.
    Options

    The values that populate the list of quirk values during the personalization configuration process. The individual options are separated by the pipe character |.

    For example, if you want the user to select from "top", "middle" and "bottom", you would use the following value:

    top|middle|bottom

    This parameter type also support cases where the value used is different from the value the user selects from. For example, if you want the user to select from "greater than", "equal to" and "less than", but you want the selected value to be ">", "=" or "<", you would use the following value:

    greater than:>|equal to:=|less than:<
  5. Click Save.

    quirk-added
Next steps

Now you can configure a signal that uses the quirk.

Delete quirk

  1. In Uniform, open your project.

  2. Navigate to Personalization > Quirks.

  3. Find the row that represents the quirk you want to delete.

  4. Click the red trash can icon.

    About this step

    If the deleted quirk was used in a signal any composition, when you open the signal the Quirk Name field will be empty. You will not see an error or anything.
