There are internal users at my company who pull in the 'Visitors' metric for an eVar and believe it is the count of distinct Visitors over the specific date range in their report selection.  They do not realize that they are actually summing daily unique visitors over the date range.

 

Please either:

1. Update calculation of 'eVar 'Visitors' metric to count distinct Visitors over report time range OR

2. Re-label 'Visitors' in eVar reports as 'Sum of Daily Unique Visitors'

I'd add or recommend they just do away with the metric entirely. In it's current form it is of little to no value and have never quoted a "Visitor" number from an eVar report.

With some of the later versions of Adobe Analytics this shouldn't be a problem anymore.
