Filter and customisation in Real-time reports

The new Real-Time reports in SiteCatalyst are great and visually engaging but there are few missing things that woud really help.

 

1. Filter Page report
The Page report includes all pages, including landing pages like "Home" and "Search" that will always be near the top of results. Could these be filtered to only show 'content' pages?

2. Change number of results shown
The Page report always shows 10 results. Couuld we change this to show a custom number, eg. 15 / 20 results?

3. Include key metrics
It would be useful to include other key metrics such as cumulative page views today / yesterday alongside the realtime data to give an at-a-glance view. Is it possible to include these in the display, or in the other direction incorporate the realtime data in a dashboard / publishing widget for display with other data?

 

4. Combine report suites

To combine data from one or more report suites to give an at-a-glance overview of several sites.

 

I'm particularly keen to use these on 'big screen' displays in the office so that staff can see how sites are doing immediately but to do that we need to be able to customise the data shown to really focus on their needs, which we can't quite do at the moment.

As a result we've built in-house solutions using the API but these a) aren't as pretty and b) require more maintenance than the Adobe reports so it would be great to be able to switch.

@_JM_ , have you considered using real-time reports in report builder so that you can configure the reports to your liking. I know we don't offer all the functionality you are asking for, but each of these items can be addressed to some extent or another in report builder. I even created a blog post that focuses on how you can create auto-refreshing dashboards like this in Excel: http://blogs.adobe.com/digitalmarketing/analytics/report-builder-power-user-series-create-auto-refre...

 

1. You can filter the output and visualizations in Excel to exclude values such as "Home" in a report builder workbook.

 

2. You can pull up to 50 values in report builder real-time requests at this time.

 

3. You can easily mix and match request types to include data from yesterday, a week ago, or whatever time frame is useful to you.

 

4. You can also pull real-time reports from multiple report suites in a single workbook.
