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.

Also, please include classification values in the dimensions list. Currently I can see only the main report (key value)

Good to see Adobe are monitoring the forum and keeping the product moving.

Are any of the other suggested changes in the pipeline?

Hi Ben,

 

I checked this just before I posted my comment. Looks like the feature is not available on all servers

@_JM_ No, it should be available to everyone. Of course, this will only include classifications on the variables that are available in the report (most variables other than eVars). If you are not seeing classifications, please submit a ticket to ClientCare.

@_JM_ Ah, that makes sense! Smiley Happy

 

eVars and their classifications will not be available for at least the next several releases due to platform limitations around persisting values in real-time.

@JamesGoffin Some of them are definitely being considered/discussed, probably in this order: 

 

#3

#1

#2

#4

 

Great submission!
