Label custom traffic reports (sProps) with Instances

Custom traffic reports show the number of how often a value is passed to a given variable. Not distinction between a page view (s.t) or custom link/download/exit/video (s.tl).

So the title should be Instances. Labeling it as Page Views is wrong and confusing as soon as you pass the variable on s.tl calls.

You should have 3 variables.

 

Page Views or s.t() calls.

On-click Instances or s.tl() calls.

Then "Occurences" which seems to be the other way you describe "Instances".

 

I created a global segment subtracting Instances & Page views to get the On-click Instances.  It really should be a default metric & not a plug we have to do.  "Instances" now on the props I think are pretty useless.

 

I'm also dying for you to be able to do correlations on Metrics, but that is another idea topic.
