Let me hide percentage columns as option

In many of our custom reports, the percentage of the line item to the total values collected is misleading and meaningless.

I should be able to hide it and have that decision persist when I bookmark, download or email the report.

I'd like to reiterate my support for this idea. I'm forever having to explain to report recipients, "Oh, those other percents *next to* the conversion rate percents? Just ignore those."

Couldn't agree more.  Explaining that the percentage is the % of column percentage, when the data tends to get read across the line (when multiple events broken down by eVar) takes focus away from the message.

Big big agree. I constantly have to send follow up emails explaining the reports I just sent, specifically because of those often meaningless percentages...

Any ETA on when this might be complete? It's definitely frustrating to have that % or bar next to the number, especially when you need a calculated metric (%) right next to it.

Completely agree this is required, and the recent 'fix' isn't a solution at all.

 

It's rare I find these numbers useful, but common that I need more colums. These additional numbers are unwanted and just add noise.

This is available in the settings icon for each column in Analysis Workspace. It won't be coming to Reports & Analytics, but is very easy to do in Analysis Workspace.
