Trending in Date Comparison mode

The current limitation for comparison report to ranking limits our ability to account for anomaly events and to compare the trajectory of what we're measuring. Having access to trend comparisons would often make deciding what is worth pursuing and what are non-issues  faster and more defendable.

Hi,

 

I agree with you on that. In addition, it would help further to identify non-issues if we could compare last week with average of three/four previous weeks etc. Have posted on the same:

For the time-being till we get such functionalities, I have resorted to using Excel Client to get the same effect - which of course has its own limitations of not showing subrelation reports etc.

Agree - seems odd that the default trended view for site metrics is there (vs 4wks / 52wks ago) but then there is no control over looking at this over custom date ranges.

 

Google Analytics does this very well, allowing compare date ranges to be selected for all reports.
