SOLVED

Missing Video Views metric in Ad Hoc/Workspace

Hi,

In Ad Hoc and Analytics Workspace, we no longer see the video view metric. It looks like it is replaced with "Video Initiates"? Was this change related to the October release?

Thank you,

Chris

We had been seeing our video name variable renamed for a while, but can also confirm we are seeing additional items renamed (video views, video completes, time viewed). It's pretty confusing for our users since they cannot find these any longer.  

Our original issue was moved into bug AN-131660 if that helps (if you want to watch the release notes or reference this in any customer care tickets).

Hi Chris,

Welcome to the Adobe Analytics Community!

Could you recheck if the 'video view' or 'video initiates' are calculated metrics or not? I can't find either of them on my side. Thanks. 

Tanmay

Hi Tanmay,

"Video Initiates" is not a calculated metric. It is a standard metrics available in Ad Hoc and Workspace. Attached is a screenshot within Ad Hoc.
