I know this is similar to everyone who's recommended increasing the number of items available for trending, etc.  But I have a pretty sweet solution for this:

 

Here's the situation:

 

I've discovered that several Pages tags have recently gone live.  I'd like to confirm what date they went live.  I could go to the Pages Report, and Trend each of the pages by Pageview to discover this.  Sure this isn't terribly difficult for a few pages, but what if I have 50 pages that I want to check?


Well here's the solution:

 

In the Report Options there's an option to change the "Percent shown as: Number | Graph"  Wouldn't it be cool if I could also click Trend?  By clicking Trend, I'd see a Sparkline which shows the trend for whatever metric I'm looking at.

 

This way I'll be able to look at the trending of ALL of my Pages at the same time!  Obviously, applying this to other reports (sProp and eVar reports of course) would be useful.

 

Cool huh?
