Folders for Metrics!

Folder for Metrics!

If you are anything like me, you would save a ton of clicks (and time) with folders for metrics.  I think we all spend a lot of time selecting metrics for our reports.  I find myself selecting the same group of metrics all the time.  If I could arrange my metrics into custom folders (or default folders), and add all of the metrics in the folder by adding the folder to my report, it would save a ton of time.  Plus it would allow us to organize our metrics to keep related metrics together!


I'll let the Omniture engineers figure out the details (b/c we all know they have super powers), but just to give a little pizzazz to this idea I have included a mock up of the "new" metric selector.

We are reviewing this idea as we look at our long term plans to enhance the metrics selector and associated workflow.

I like the general idea, though I would not make it too complicated. Maybe just another entry in the dropdown saying "my metrics" and some place to manage that?

With the introduction of tags, metrics are now much easier to organize and manage. It would be great to hear your feedback if tags do the trick or if you'd still like to have proper folders to organize metrics.

Proper folders, please!

I'm in favour of the Tags concept, reason being is you can apply multiple tags.

Tags are ok, but actual folders can make navigation much faster.  This is especially for shared metrics with less sophisticated users.

Love this idea!


I agree but with a growing list of custom metrics, it becomes really hard to manage it.

This will be definitely helpful as we are facing the same problem while drilling the metrics.
