Rule builder for iOS 15 / macOS 12
This page details how to use the rule builder to display alternative content to iOS 15 and macOS 12 users.
We have made improvements to our Rule Builder detection functionality and are now able to detect the current iOS 15 / macOS 12 version of Apple Mail. What this means, is that you will be able to show alternative content to recipients opening on iOS 15 / macOS 12, whilst delivering the normal Kickdynamic experience to all other iOS users.
From 20th September 2021 we recommend that you create iOS 15 / macOS 12 alternative for tags that you create. You can do this using the rule builder. All you need to do is single out the iOS 15 and macOS 12 operating system (info below) and choose what you wish to display. The default for the rule should be the original content.
The condition for the rule is:
'Privacy Protection' is 'enabled'.
Here is an example of the Privacy protection rule in the rule builder. The condition can be found in the 'device' section.
Don't forget that you'll need to have all of the tags you want to use in the rule built before you build your rule. Once they are built, they will be available in the Rule Builder to select. You can upload alternative images within the Rule Builder if required.
All tags will be generated with an additional parameter in both the href and the image src: &kdcustomerid=
You should merge in a unique customer id (never an email address!) after the equals sign. This will allow us to recognise the environment each individual is opening in.
If the tag is being used multiple times you should add an additional parameter to the image:
After the equals for this parameter you should add your ESP's merge code for send date/time. This will ensure that every time this tag lands in a MPP environment that Apple will see the image link as unique and request the latest version of the image (they will not retrieve an old image from their cache).
If using content automation tags, you can add positions to the tag as you normally would.
