Recommendation Events

Magento Commerce only

When you deploy the magento/product-recommendations module, the module tracks the following user events. These events enable behavioral data collection.

If shoppers use ad blockers or enable privacy settings that prevent the magento/product-recommendations module from capturing events, the metrics reflected in the Product Recommendations dashboard will not be accurate. Most likely, the engagement and revenue numbers will be underrepresented.

If Cookie Restriction Mode is enabled, Magento does not collect behavioral data until the shopper consents. If Cookie Restriction Mode is disabled, Magento collects behavioral data by default.
