Dynamic date comparison


Level 4



We used to use another analytical solution to do our analyses. Adobe Analytics allows a much finer analysis than your main competitor. And that's bravo.

On the other hand, you lack a major functionality compared to your competitors: it is impossible today to compare dates in a dynamic way.

Example :

I want to compare a period



versus last year

I can use your "compare date period" feature and I will then have the same date versus year-1 namely 01/01/2017 to 18/01/2017

but if I change the date in the main panel to put



My comparison column will then remain on 01/01/2017 to 18/01/2017

So it's a disaster for the analyses and I don't see myself updating my tables every time I want to do an analysis.

Can you therefore propose a functionality allowing to have a checkbox in the main calendar with the mention :

- comparison versus last year

- comparison versus last month

And this in a dynamic way




Level 4


Easiest way perhaps should be to have the opportunity to create a new date range with :

Start of panel calendar day minus 365 days

End of panel calendar day minus 365 days

with this function we should be able to compare datas in a dynamic way.





Great feedback. This is something we have on our backlog for consideration.

Currently, the time comparisons are based on today's date only. They are independent of the panel date range. In order to make time comparisons more flexible, we would need to allow Workspace to be based on a date of your choosing, e.g. panel date range selection.

Exactly, so you have that on your backlog on september 2018, do you have any info on this ?

I have spoke to a lot of people using Adobe Analytics and it's a real problem for every body.



Level 5


One more vote to get this dynamic report date off the backlog list and into reality. Would save us SO MUCH TIME in building custom timeframes. This is preventing us from being able to turn a lot of dashboards over to our project managers.
