Turn OFF anomaly detection by default

Each time I create a graph, I take an extra step to remove the anomaly bubbles as we have very few reports/scenarios in which they apply or are helpful. Maybe 1%? I would be very, very grateful if there were a toggle somewhere to turn OFF anomaly detection by default. Or perhaps Adobe could explore turning them off for everyone and see if you get any complaints. 🙂 

My company is in media, so our metrics fluctuate significantly based on content available -- NBA Games, Star Wars, etc. etc.

@jenlasser, pretty please 🙂

I disagree. Anomaly detection is very helpful in some cases, e.g. travel, ecommerce.

can't you just change permission in the product profile for users who shouldn't see the anomaly detection?

I agree with this suggestion. A toggle for on/off by deafult would be great. I find that I rarely use the anomaly detection and when i need to I would prefer to just turn it on for that graph/table. It also seems to require a lot of computational power with its crunching which is processing power that could be used better elsewhere.

That's a good idea re: turning it off in permissions, but that's still a lot of hassle. Would prefer a simple default toggle since it seems liek for some users it is helpful, and for others, it's just extra work for the Adobe servers to provide information that's actively not wanted.

I would suggest disabling anomaly detection at a Project level. Anomaly detection slows down the whole Project because AA needs to calculate the anomaly for every single datapoint. If the Project contains many tables or a few tables with many cells, the Project is not usable until AA has finished calculating all of the anomalies everywhere. So it would be great to be able to disable anomaly detection in such cases, so that the Project is usable immediately upon loading.
