Strongly need the ability to construct calculated metrics that are not based solely on Metrics/Events alone but allow qualification by values in variables. This would let you more accurately quantify Segments of traffic, trend them, set Alerts on them, etc.
Example - You want to know the Percent % of Visitors looking at Cars vs. Trucks (stored in eVar1)
- eVar1('Cars') / Visits OR eVar1(Contains 'Trucks') / Visits
- Calculate the difference between Cars & Trucks = (eVar1('Cars') - eVar1('Trucks))
Better Example: You want to know how many people are doing a Product Configuration (Event1) for a given Segment of your Products (i.e. Cars)
- Event1 (eVar1='Cars') / Visits
This then tied with See Also IDEA: % Based Alerts really opens up Site Catalyst to pushing out awareness of Segments shifting, dashboarding this, etc.
Also, having calculations like this would make it very easy to See Also IDEA: Add Targets/Goals to Reports (Example below) based on formulas that can adjust.
