Missing Video Views metric in Ad Hoc/Workspace

chris_cheung 25-10-2016


In Ad Hoc and Analytics Workspace, we no longer see the video view metric. It looks like it is replaced with "Video Initiates"? Was this change related to the October release?

Thank you,

We had been seeing our video name variable renamed for a while, but can also confirm we are seeing additional items renamed (video views, video completes, time viewed). It's pretty confusing for our users since they cannot find these any longer.  

Our original issue was moved into bug AN-131660 if that helps (if you want to watch the release notes or reference this in any customer care tickets).

Hi Tanmay,

"Video Initiates" is not a calculated metric. It is a standard metrics available in Ad Hoc and Workspace. Attached is a screenshot within Ad Hoc.

Hi Chris,

Welcome to the Adobe Analytics Community!

Could you recheck if the 'video view' or 'video initiates' are calculated metrics or not? I can't find either of them on my side. Thanks.
