In 13.5 the Time Spent Per Visit report listed the average time spent in the total in addition to broken out by the various time buckets. This disappeared in 14. Currently the only way to get this is via the ExcelClient
Since this is a KPI we track, this is the only reason I'm constantly having to log back into 13.5
Instead of using the ExcelClient:
1. Go to an existing dashboard
2. Click Add Custom Reportlet
3. Select Content Metric = Average Time Spent On Site
Please include in Report Builder, too!
I miss this. I have to use dashboards or ExcelClient datablocks for it now. I'd also like to see it as an option in DataWarehouse.
There's actually a way to get this in Omniture Suite.
Site Metrics > Page Views.
Scroll down to the bottom.
Under Related Reports - Time Spent per Visit.
Not sure how this report varies from the "regular" Time Spent per Visit, but the actual average number appears. Would be nice if this appeared on all the Time Spent per Visit reports.
Whilst you can get to average time spent by the ways mentioned above, you can't actually get a trended report for average time spent per visit (only top 5 or selected 5 time ranges) so you cant show he trend in dashboards at all.
This would be useful, even though time spent is not really true ( given time spent on last page of a visit can't actually be measured)
Per WJungHearst recommendation:
with the rollout of v14.7, this solution is now gone too!
Please bring this metric back.
I would like this metric back as well. It'd be useful to be able to see this as a trended metric.
Doesn't this exist in Site Metrics > Time Spent Per Visit? Just add "Visits (Report-Specific)" as your metric.
@ericmatisoff - Visits (Report Specific) metric doesn't appear to help matters, there's still no site average, just the breakdown (reporting the number of visits per time segment).
@tkochersperger - We've just seen release of SC v14.9 and the site average appears to be still available through the method WJungHearst suggests above.
Since they're obviously calculating this anyway, it would be nice to have it available as a regular report.
