It would be very useful to know the date that the revision was created when using the compare revisions screen - at the moment you just get the revision number (e.g. revision 3):

Create common centralised rules/data elements shared across properties

I would like to be able to centrally manage a rule/data element and have the change automatically distributed across multiple properties. We are managing several properties and have found that we have many common rules/data elements. When we change how we want them to work we have to manually edit each individually or do a lot of copying between properties. I would envisage a separate area to manage these common rules/data elements. Within each property, there would be an option to add a central...

Allow users to multi select data elements and change duration

When you multi select data elements you currently have the option to , enable, disable, copy, and delete the data elements. Please can you consider adding an option to edit the 'duration' across multiple data element at a time? We recently had a situation where we wanted to alter the duration on 50+ element, and although we could filter the list to show them we had to go in to each individually to edit them which was very time consuming.

Hi @markhicken, not the norm, we had a tag that needed deploying and managing for which there was no launch extension. It was a few hundred rows I think.

Thanks @mesood, I realise it is possible to tag components from with in the analysis workspace interface. But I specifically want to be able to add/remove tags from within the VRS curation workflow so I don't have to keep going back and forth - Unfortunately this isn't currently available 😞

Automatically update classification rule builder when classification name changes
Avatar

A_Wathen

At the moment, if you change the name of a classification it breaks all the associated classification rules built in the classification rule builder. Each rule then has to be manually edited to get it working again with the new classification name. I think it would make sense if a classification name change automatically updated the classification rule builder.

Add/remove component tags from virtual report suite curation screen

We make extensive use of tags to keep track of what components should appear in which virtual report suite (VRS). When curating a VRS it would be a great time saver to be able to add/remove component tags from this screen in the same way you can else where in the tool (i.e. right click on the component):

Undo: make it work for everything in a workspace project e.g. segment edits

I was editing a segment on a workspace panel. After making a change I realised it had broken my project. I thought "No problem, Adobe introduce Undo in workspace, I'll just undo the change to my workspace project!" - but unfortunately it doesn't work - half an hour then wasted trying to remember/recreate the old segment 😞 It would be really great if the undo function worked for all changes in a workspace project as this really caught me out - please could this be considered? 🙂

View Only Workspace: Enabled Date Range Changes
Avatar

A_Wathen

MVP

A_Wathen
- Adobe Analytics
When a project is shared as 'view only' users cannot change the date range. I think an option to allow date range changes would increase the usefulness of this mode while still balancing the need for control. Without this flexibility I think there is the potential that this will lead us to build bloated projects that are trying to guess at the different date ranges that users might want to look at. For instance, if we have a project showing 'last weeks sales', users would find it useful to also ...

I can see how you could potentially do this using a combination of regex in the classification rule builder and a calculated metric. It's pushing the limits of what is achievable but it might just be do-able... For the sake of explaining the concept let's simplify things by make the (false) assumption that your products range in value from $1 to $999 and are in whole numbers (you'll need to expand the concept to cover other values!).

Adobe over the years have had a number of different ways of tracking channels and modelling attribution. This one I believe pre-dates marketing channels. There is no right or wrong answer as to when to use it (assuming you've got it set up correctly), it's just going to tell you something slightly different. However in our organisation we've hidden this variable from users and directed them to marketing channels for consistency. In terms of the set up of this particular variable, Adobe automatic...

Is the failed server call a link tracking call triggered on navigation from one screen to another? This is the only circumstance I've seen this "(failed)" status before. In this circumstance it doesn't necessarily mean that the server call has failed to reach Adobe i.e. data may still have been collected. In this circumstance, the failed status is returned when the navigation to the next screen completes before the response come back from the Adobe server (which shouldn't impact data collection ...

The segment as described will return any visits that contain "A then B within one page view" at any point within the journey. So the journey described would be included as it matches this criteria. I also wondered whether turning off "count repeat instances" under the menu Project > Project Info & Settings might be useful to you depending on what you are doing as hit 2 and hit 3 would be filtered out in this case.

It would add a very useful additional layer of flexibility if the Adobe Analytics extension allowed you to add a condition against the variable you were setting (dare I say it, similar to processing rules! 😅) At the moment if I want to conditionally set a variable (e.g. an eVar) I either have to have a completely separate rule or I have to use custom code within the action both of which are a compromise for different reasons.

Within the custom code editor, if there is a large amount of code entered adobe appear to be dynamically loading the code as you scroll - so the whole block of code is never there in it's entirety. This makes it very difficult to search the code as the browser search functionality does not work as expected. Please can you consider adding an option to search the custom code within the editor?
