Page Section Module for SXA

Page Section Module for SXA

This module was the winner of “Sitecore Hackathon 2019” for the “Best extension of the editing experience for SXA in Experience Editor” category.

Page Section Module for SXA is a module that will allow marketers and content editor to easily add a section component to a page using experience editor that will enable marketers to:

  • Set up page section parameters and properties in an easy/ graphic manner;
  • Trigger a goal on the section once it gets visible on the screen (through scrolling). Allowing marketers to understand if a specific content in a section is being shown/reached or not.

What problem doest it solve?

We have identified when connecting with marketeers and content editors that most of them want to follow a specific layout pattern when adding content to pages. So far the components available using Sitecore Experience Editor and SXA don’t allow as much customization as they often require. This module is focused on drag n drop components normalization while being able to customize. Finally, is useful as a data collector and decision support through its goal setting feature.
