The ability to generate one report consisting of data from multiple RSIDs. Currently you can only query a single RSID in a data block.

Hello,

 

This is an intriguing idea, I have a few follow up questions about it.

 

Could you provide some example of datablocks that you would create if you were able to specify two report suites within a datablock?

 

Do you need this feature from a productivity perspective only (it is faster to create one datablock than two separate datablocks)? Or will it unlock specific functionality that is not currently available?

 

Thank you,

Thanks Guillaume. 

 

The use case I had in mind was in answering questions about traffic across many different report suites (aka at the enterprise level). Seeing that all in one Excel Worksheet, with the RSID as a Field would be really valuable from both a productivityand functionality perspective. Otherwise I'm creating 50+ data blocks everytime I want to ask an enterprise question. Hope that helps.

FYI, we do have a global RSID which we use on all pages of every site however it's more powerful to select which combinations of RSIDs I want to combine in a pull rather than to have to create filters.

I see, 

 

So really, it would make sense to expose for site metrics reports only and be able to output the report suite as one of the dimensions:

 

Dimension              Visits    Page Views

Report Suite A          34             234

Report Suite B          23             225

Report Suite C         11             123

 

Right?

 

Thank you,

 

Guillaume

This is exactly what I was looking for, yes.
