You can use the advanced settings to fine-tune the performance, tracking, audience, and display settings of a modification.
To define advanced settings:
- In the Frosmo Control Panel, in the sidebar, select Modifications.
- In the modifications list, find the modification whose advanced settings you want to define, and click the modification name.
In the Basic settings view, in the sidebar, click Define settings.
Define the settings you want:
- When you're done, click Save.
Performance and tracking settings
The performance and tracking settings allow you to change the default configuration of the modification to improve loading time and disable tracking.
The following table describes the available performance and tracking settings.
Changing the default values of these settings may affect your site performance or the data collected from your site. Change the default values only if you definitely know what you're doing.
Table: Performance and tracking settings
Enable loading the modification content in the browser as a part of the custom script, which decreases the delay in displaying the modification (the flickering effect).
Enabling content preloading means you cannot use most of the advanced modification settings.
In addition, content preloading increases the size of your custom script. If there are several modifications using content preloading on the same site, loading the custom script will be slower.
Content preloading also increases the risk of the visitors seeing outdated content as the modification is cached in the browser.
Use content preloading only when:
Enabling content preloading for a modification that displays a recommendation does not affect the recommendation data, which still comes from the Frosmo back end. Only the content explicitly defined for the modification is included in the site's custom script. Using content preloading with modifications that display recommendations is therefore not recommended.
Enable automatically attributing conversions to the modification based on the clicks, displays, and true displays the modification receives.
If you disable conversion tracking for the modification, the platform no longer attributes conversions to the modification based on the clicks, displays, and true displays the modification receives. This affects the modification performance statistics.
|GA tracking||Enable tracking Google Analytics events for the modification. Tracking requires that you have integrated Google Analytics with the Frosmo Platform. For more information, see System and service integrations.||Enabled|

The audience settings allow you to customize the target audience for testing purposes or fine-tune the audience beyond segments and affinity groups.
The following table describes the available audience settings.
Table: Advanced audience settings
|Test mode||Enable or disable test mode for the modification. When test mode is enabled, the modification is visible only to visitors who browse your site in test mode.|
|Deciles||Select the deciles to which you want to display the modification. By default, all deciles are selected, meaning the modification displays to a visitor no matter which decile they're in.|
|Devices||Select the types of devices on which the modification is shown to visitors (desktop, mobile, or tablet). By default, all device types are selected, meaning the modification is shown to a visitor no matter what device they're using.|
Select modification states. States are custom actions that you can use to determine whether the modification is displayed to the visitor. For example, you can determine that the modification is only displayed to visitors that are logged in, or visitors using a specific language version of the site.
Unless there are custom actions created for your site, you cannot use them in modification states.
For more information, see Feature: Custom action.

The display settings allow you to fine-tune how often and how many times the modification is displayed.
The following table describes the available display settings.
Table: Advanced display settings
|Display delay||Display delay determines the number of seconds after which the modification is displayed after the custom script has been loaded. The delay timer starts when the modification placement is verified and the modification is ready to be displayed.|
|Display interval||Display interval determines how often the same modification can be shown to visitors. You can set the interval to seconds, minutes, hours, or days.|
|Max. displays per visitor||Determine the maximum number of times the modification can be shown to a specific visitor. If you leave this field empty, the modification can be shown an indefinite number of times.|
|Max. displays per all visitors||Determine the maximum total number of times the modification can be shown to visitors. If you leave this field empty, the modification can be shown an indefinite number of times.|
Set the modification priority. If there are several modifications with the same placement settings, priority determines which of the modifications is displayed most often.
Priority can be set as very low, low, medium (default), high, or very high. If priority is not set or there are several modifications with the same priority, the modifications are displayed in the order they were created.
Set the modification weight. If there are several modifications with the same placement settings and priority, weight determines which of the modifications is displayed most often.
To show several modifications in turns, set the weight for each modification as 1.
