This was brought to my attention by someone and I thought this was a very good idea that should be thought about:
I know for myself, I do feel like there is a lot of time wasted unnecessary when we are trying to run the actual report we want in Adobe Reports and Analytics (SiteCatalyst) when I need to make several updates at once (cross a report, add metrics, add a segment, and change date range). For me to run this one report, I am making four actions and this means four times the page will refresh the page and pull the unnecessary reports until I get to my actual report.
This is very time consuming, and I would presume puts unnecessary strain on Adobe’s server to pull these reports. If we have the ability to make all the changes we would like then click a button to run report – this would save significant amount of our time while Adobe refreshes the report. This also could be mentioned for Discover as well.
As this was put to me:
I believe it should have a ‘Run Report’ button and stop refreshing/executing the report after every change in the Dimension, Metric, Period, Suit or segments.
Run Report will allow users to make all the changes they want in the next report and then execute it.
