Additional default settings in Workspace


Level 2


Stemming from my initial question here, which had a bit of discussion:


Description: In Workspace, whenever I build a freeform table, the default options are things like (show as sum of rows and background with bar chart.) The ability to set other options as my default values would save a lot of time.


Why is this feature important to you: For the last five years, my team of 10 and I, have been working with very large data sets in Adobe Analytics. The time it takes to build a freeform table could be cut in half if default settings were able to be changed. Recently, I built a very common table for our work, drilling down by 10+ segments, each broken down by additional segments/dimensions, and seven metrics columns. 90% of the time we set each drilldown to "show grand total" and uncheck "background" for each metric. For this one table, that means changing 17 settings, which adds a ton of time, especially when most of our analysis is previous 12 months.


How would you like the feature to work: It could be as simple as adding new options to the Components>>Preferences, but even better would have a checkbox in the settings window, that said "Set as Default."  



Current Behaviour: I need to change settings in every drilldown and metric.
