Unique User Identification

To present new features and announcements to users, we need to identify users uniquely and categorize them to achieve this, letzNav introduces a feature to identify users based on different strategies. The user identification happens whenever a user visits the application page and for every DOM change.  

Different options for user identification are present in manage Application of the letzNav admin.

Different Strategies for user Identification are:

  1. letzNav ID:  
    This option generates a Unique ID that will differ for every instance of the player.
  2. Cookie:  
    This option will take a cookie name which will be present when the Application is loaded. This cookie will be used to identify the user.
  3. JavaScript:  
    The JavaScript option takes a script that will return a valid user ID string that has to be checked.
  4. Variable:  
    This option takes a Window variable, which will be checked when the user loads the site along with the player.  
    Note: The window variable should belong to topmost window.

The knowledge of the basic functioning of Documents, Window object and working of browser memory is required to use the above feature.

The identification of the user, based on user ID, helps to present Onboardings and Announcements to users when the player is loaded on the application.
