Description -

Measuring the time between events is an area that is often asked about by our users of Adobe Analytics and is an important measure of improvement for many processes.

 

At the moment if we want to find the time between events we can set custom code up for each specific scenario and pass this into an event, build some calculated metrics etc. but this is a very clunky and inflexible way to operate.

 

I can't help thinking this is an area that Adobe could do something really special in.  I'm imagining a new visualisation that you could drop 2 events into and it would spit out a whole host of metrics and visualisations (average time, histogram of time take with minute buckets, average time trended over time, percentiles etc.).

 

Why is this feature important to you -

Time between events is important metric for our Adobe Analytics users and there is no out of the box support for it (solutions seem to require custom coding which is comparably inflexible).

 

How would you like the feature to work -

New workspace visualisation


Current Behaviour -

No out of the box support

Hi Andrew,

 

I was just coming here to search on this topic and your post was the first thing that popped up.  We have implemented the Time Between Events plug in, passing the value into an sprop.   The time can be in any granularity, right now we have a mixture of minutes and seconds.  What we really want to do is get an average of these props to provide one metric to the end user which can be used as a valuable indicator.  I can't figure out how to create a calculated average metric from a column of props.  I played around with a calculated metric, but don't think it's working how I would like.  This is an idea of what I am describing.    Would love for feedback/suggestions!
