Hi,

Admittedly this is similar to Speed up the admin UI functions in sitecatalyst but specifically around ad-hoc reporting, especially when trying to cross analyse more than two Report Suites with segments, or trending data over time. Some of this can be cured with dashboards but ad-hoc analysis is sometimes unpredictable!

In some instances ad-hoc analysis may take more than a couple of steps:

- Change Report Suite

- Navigate to report

- Set date period(s) if required

- Adjust metrics (if different from default)

- Trend data if needed

- Select Top/Custom list if trending/Data filtering

- Change granularity

- Configure chart number/percentage

For those of us restricted to Reports & Analytics a reporting 'canvas' where the user identifies parameters upfront would be a great help in allocating more valuable time to analysis rather than extraction!

This is something we are specifically targeting in the new Analysis Workspace, which will feature a "builder" that will allow you to configure most or all of these things up front, before querying.
