Testing and Reporting on Consent Notices

Non-Production Notices

Non-Production notices are a way to set up a notice and its settings in an environment meant for testing. This can be done in the subsections of the Manage section of the main menu. By clicking the toggle in the top right of the “Countries & Languages” section when editing or creating notices, you can enable a particular notice for testing.

After doing this you need to update the snippet in the UCP script for "window.evidon.test". Setting this "variable = false" will point to the production settings. Pointing to "True" will be the test location. When setting up these production notices you will create a new folder structure that points to test settings.




prod: {companyId}/{domain}
        non prod: {companyId}/test/{domain}

Consent Dashboard

Our consent dashboard is the first screen you will see when you log into UCP. This dashboard provides an overview of how your notices are performing.

The dashboard lets you choose dates to view up to 60 days back with a limit of 31 days at a time for each domain. The reporting is broken down into five smaller widgets that display what is happening on your site.

The consent dashboard includes the following information:

  • Total site visitors: This shows the consent rate for the chosen domains. These are calculated by showing the number of interactions on the site divided by the number of new and previously consented website visitors.
  • Users Requiring Consent: This shows the percentage of website visitors on the selected domains that require consent. Some domain setups may not require consent.
  • Previously Consent Users: This details the number of newly consented and previously consented website visitors. Combining this calculation with the total visits will give you the consent rate for new users.
  • Unconsented User Actions: This shows the actions new website visitors have taken with your notices.
  • Consent Conversions Over Time: Shows a graph of notice performance over time for the selected domains.
  • Consent Optimization: Links to the consent optimization tool.

Consent Optimization

The consent optimization tool allows you to run tests on your consent notices to discover which changes result in higher consent rates for your audience. You have the ability to test the display type, the style, or the messaging.

To get started, click Consent Optimization on the main menu. You can view past test results or start a new test. To start a new test, click New Test in the top right corner.
