Summer 2018 Release Notes

The Fixel Summer 2018 release is finally here!

This release has focused on moving to a more scalable infrastructure that can accommodate all of our new accounts (switched from Heroku to AWS if you’re into the nut and bolts).

What’s in it for you?

  1. Faster servers
    Our script’s response rate was already fantastically, speedy, but we still wanted more.
    This means that users coming by your website will be scored faster and more accurately.
  2. More ML runs
    Our servers are not only faster but also smarter. This means that changes and anomalies in user behavior will be identified faster – so you get a more accurate scoring mechanism.
  3. Updated Fixel script
    It’s not all about the muscle, it’s also about the brains. We’ve updated our script to integrate with some awesome solutions that we will be rolling out over the next few weeks – Segment, Taboola and more.

What do you have to do?

Existing Segment codes should be upgraded to the new script. The existing script will be discontinued over the next few weeks.

Existing Fixel accounts will be notified with the upgrade details. You are also welcome to grab your updated snippet code directly on the Fixel Console. Simply click on “Get Code” button on the segment you want to update.

Legacy code (example)

<script src="https://app.fixel.ai/script/Fixel.min.js"></script>
<script async defer>
startFIXEL('FXL-12345-678',{"ga":true,"fb":true,"display":"my_site"});
</script>

Updated code (example)

<script src="https://script.fixel.ai/script/Fixel.min.js"></script>
<script async defer>runFixel("FXL-12345-678",{display:"my_site"});</script>

These are just example codes, please generate your updated snippet using the Fixel Console

Updating Google Tag Manager

To update your Google Tag Manager (GTM) installation, simply grab the code from the Fixel Console.

In GTM, open the “Fixel Launch” tag and replace the existing snippet with the new one.

Publish the container, and that’s it.

Updating the Code Snippet

To update your code snippet installation, simply grab the code from the Fixel Console.

Remove the existing code snippet from the page’s <body> tag on all relevant pages and replace it with the updated Fixel script.

Validating the snippet upgrade

After you have installed the updated snippet (via GTM or directly in the code) you can easily verify your installation by clicking on the “Verify installation” button and typing the URL you would like to check (e.g. https://www.example.com).
