Make instances an available metric for data warehouse reporting. If it's in the regular UI it should be in DW too.
This would be very handy for me so I can get accurate counts of my custom link text in Data Warehouse. I can get accurate counts of them in Site Catalyst, but the metric is instances.
Trying to count them in Data Warehouse the only metrics I can use are visits or page views. Since custom link text is associated with an event, the page views and visits metrics are not correct.
I just came across this same issue today, and I'm not happy. Actually, now that I see that Omniture's known about this for almost half a year...I'm even less happy!
Any eVar that keeps count of something has the Instances metric. Think "Site Search Terms". Why in the world would Omniture offer this metric in SiteCatalyst but not in Data Warehouse?
Any Omniture folks care to comment or (better yet) commit?
This is a 'must have' metrics for custom links and eVars. I don't know why they did not include it in Data warehouse.
Status says implemented, but I don't see it in the tool.
Same here. Also not seeing it in the interface. NOT implemented!
Bump! Has this been addressed as of yet?
The following ideas are duplicated by this one:
Metric "Instances" is missing in Data Warehouse
Add 'Instances' as metrics in Data warehouse for Custom links and Exit Links
Make click-through metric available in Data Warehouse
Data warehouse: Instances metric missing for files download report.
Add Instance Metric to DataWarehouse
