Calculations in Workspace

mark_johnson3 20-07-2016

It would be great if calculations could be performend in workspace.

For example the delta between 'column' 1 for 'yeserday' and column 2 for 'same day previous week' being able to add a column whihc is % change, calculated on the fly.

It would be really good if this could work like 'Worksheet' in workbench. So actually you can perform a calculation based on a 'cell' within workspace to calculate anything you need on the fly.

This is on our backlog for consideration in an upcoming release.

Thanks for the update on this Ben, great that its under review. 


Just to add to what I put earlier, I think this is a real potential for differentiation between Adobe and Google. 


When Calculated metrics and their capability came in that was a game changer, i think whilst building the 'Worksheet' capability into workspace, could you also consider exposing the functions and statistical functions to this. That would be very useful.

Supporting this request strongly! You can do wonderful things, including % calculations, with calculated metrics builder, but that is always manual process, so this kind of "on the fly calculation" feature would save lots of time.


I believe this is partially (or fully?) solved by Quick Calculated Metrics in Analysis Workspace | Adobe Analytics - YouTube
