Similar to the weight adjustment for Arbitration Influencers, the weighting of actions associated with a Journey Stage may also be adjusted.
The Journey Stages DDR is populated by the UI during Journey Stage editing, however, the editing of the weighting properties will not be available via the UI until a later release, although these properties are included in the DDR for manual editing by advanced users if required.
The properties are the same as those for Arbitration Influencers and are shown below.
|WeightAdjustInterval||Time period over which the action weight will be adjusted in minutes.|
|WeightAdjustDuration||Time interval between adjustments in minutes.|
|WeightAdjustStartValue||The starting upweight value.|
|WeightAdjustEndValue||The ending upweight value (if this is less than the start then the weight will be decayed).|
The weight adjustment properties allow the action Weight to be adjusted so that if Action
weighting is enabled in the Arbitration tab of Next-Best-Action
Designer. This will affect the overall priority of the Journey Stage actions.

The weight adjustment properties allow the action Weight to be adjusted so that if Action weighting is enabled in the Arbitration tab of Next-Best-Action Designer. This will affect the overall priority of the target actions. The detailed weight adjustment calculations are shown below.
|pyLastResponseTime||The time when the outcome that triggered the journey weight adjustment occurred.||.TimeInCurrentStage = @DateTimeDifference(.StageStartDateTime, @getCurrentTimeOfDayStamp(), "m") .WeightAdjustInterval = @if(.WeightAdjustInterval>0, .WeightAdjustInterval, 1)|
|Quantity||Total number of weight duration intervals.||.Quantity = @if(.WeightAdjustDuration > 0, @divide(.WeightAdjustDuration, .WeightAdjustInterval, 0), 1)|
|Value||The weight increment per interval, negative if start weight is greater than end weight.||Value = @divide((.WeightAdjustEndValue - .WeightAdjustStartValue), .Quantity, 2)|
|JourneyWeight||The incremental upweighting value for the target actions, note that this could be negative.||.JourneyWeight = @if(.TimeInCurrentStage > .WeightAdjustDuration, .WeightAdjustEndValue, .WeightAdjustStartValue + (@divide(.TimeInCurrentStage, .WeightAdjustInterval, 0, "down") * .Value))|
The resultant JourneyWeight is then added to the action Weight property for use in the arbitration formula.
