Allow Time as a Dimension in Discover

I would like to be able to break down a report by week (or day or month).  For example, right now I have set up a workspace in Discover where for a particular Display Campaign, I have the multiple reports (with the same metrics) broken down by Website, Creative Type, Creative Size (all classifications) and Landing Page.  I would also like a report that has the exact same set-up, just broken down by week.

 

I can create a similar report by creating a weekly report, adding in the relevant metrics and then segmenting for that Display Campaign.  However this is not as straight forward, particularly when I have metrics which are actually segments (Visits in which a particular page was viewed).

Peter,

 

 

You'd be able to do that if you implemeted values such as date, day, weekday/weekend in eVars and/or props.

 

It is a simple yet critical exercise as part of any good implementation.

Happy to show you how to do that. 🙂

 

Michael
