Sitecore Personalization with Snippets – Part 3, Embedded Macro Personalization

In part 1 of this series, we discussed how personalization rules can be embedded within Snippets, and where ever those Snippets are added to pages, those personalization rules will execute.  This is handy when you are personalizing pieces of global elements such content that appears within main navigation or footers.

In part 2, we introduced the concept of macro personalization and how we can “swap out” Snippets added to a page to personalize the entire Snippet – which is great when you are personalizing more complex items like carousels, tabsets, accordions, or if you wish to change out global elements and literally swap the entire header or footer based on a personalization condition.
