pre/post analysis

Use case:

We are running a “pre/post” analysis in workspace and want to make the dashboard a dynamic monitor for the duration of the test (this would also be applicable to new site launches or new feature launches that a user might want to monitor over time, this test will be running for a few months in our case). 

We can easily create a custom date range in workspace for the “Post” period (start fixed date to end of current day), but we can’t seem to make a rolling “pre” period. We would need the ability to do start of [user specified fixed day] minus # of days [rolling backwards relative to current date] through fixed end date.

So if we launched something on Oct 24th, we could compare dynamically 13 days pre & 13 days post, and if we loaded the workspace tomorrow it would roll to 14 days pre/post.

This is doable inside of workspace right now. Go up to "components" >> "date ranges" and create a date range where the start day is fixed, and the end day is rolling. Then use this as the time segment for your "pre" group.

Hi Nick,

Thanks for the tip, however I am looking to roll my dates backward. For example if my rolling date is 11/1 I would like for my dates to roll back from 11/1. so I can see a trended view of 11/1,10/31,10/29...etcs..

I hope that made sense.

Lucy
