February 2021 Release Highlights
By Brian Jægerfeldt
Our monthly release highlights include a brief summary of the top new features from the previous month.
This month’s update includes:
- The Launch of Accessibility NextGen
- Bulk Configuration on Discover Parameters page in Analytics
- Pre-publish checks in Adobe Experience Manager and Drupal CMS plugins
We officially launched Accessibility NextGen on February 10th. The new accessibility governance product is built to help customers achieve a higher level of accessibility conformance. One of the most significant changes is that we re-engineered the core engine to accurately and reliably test against the latest W3C ACT rules.

Switch to NextGen
If you are an Account Owner and have not yet switched to the new version of Accessibility, simply look for the “Switch to NextGen” button on the announcement bar in the accessibility module.
When accounts are switched to NextGen, the old Accessibility version will be removed from the menu item.
Bulk Configuration on Discover Parameters page
We are delighted to present the new option to bulk-track and bulk-ignore parameters on the Discover Parameters page in Analytics. This allows for an easier workflow when you manage your list of Analytics parameters.
Discover Parameters provide you with an overview of which parameters appear on your website. If unconfigured, parameters can result in multiple variations of the same page, which can skew your data.
Tab the “Learn” component in Analytics Setting > Tracking > Discover Parameters to learn more about parameters.
