Preview Recommender Output

After adding or changing a recommender, you can preview the recommender output to see how the resulting list of recommendations appears to shoppers.

When a shopper views a specific product on your storefront, the system automatically passes certain anchors, or information about a product or product category, to Commerce Cloud Einstein. Depending on the recommender type that you want to preview, you sometimes must specify product anchors, the a product name or product ID, or category anchors, the product category, to preview output.

In the Preview tab, when you specify anchors it simulates shopper activity or selections on your site. Einstein uses this information to generate a preview of the recommendations a shopper sees that’s, based on the anchor information you provide.

For example, to preview Product to Product or Complete the Set recommender output, select at least one product anchor. To preview Products in a Category recommender output, specify at least one category anchor.

Using the anchor information provided, Commerce Cloud Einstein returns a list of recommendations appropriate for that product or set of products.
