Analysis Workspace - Save Visualization to reuse

I'd like to be able to save pre-built visualizations to use in other projects.  To start with, Freeform Tables would be the biggest need (some other types may lend themselves, some may not).

For example, I may built a table using video name, video start, video 25%, 50%, 75% and complete.  That requires me to find a dimension and 5 metrics every time.  I'd like to be able to save this table, then have a new option in the workspace menu on the left to find and reuse these.

Advantages:

* Saves users time building the same tables they use often.

* As an admin, I'd like to be able to share popular "widgets" out to users. This would particularly help newer users as they could bring in pre-built pieces that they want to use rather than attempting to figure out what variables go with what.

...or just the ability to copy/transfer panels between workspaces would be useful!

This sounds great, or as Andy said, ability to copy panels between workspaces would be cool.

I think the best example of this was the old dashboards in SiteCatalyst where they were available as reportlets.  It let you to take one that was created in another dashboard and put it into your new dashboard.  If we have the same ability - you "save" a panel and then you can use that panel in any other report.  

 

If you could do this, then allow admins to push this save reportlet to user groups so other users can benefit from the power users in the business.

Great suggestion, everyone. This is something we hear from time to time as we are discussing Analysis Workspace with users. We'll keep an eye on the idea going forward.

Thanks Ben.  In addition to my original idea, the idea of importing tables from other workspaces is something I've wished for in the past as well.  The saved vizualation is particularly useful from a time saving perspective and would be great for beginners.  I think the import table is good for those one-off situations (and hopefully you could select multiple tables to bring in and not just one).

Agree, this would be invaluable for increasing adoption and usage of Workspace for novice/infrequent users.
