I don't think this can be done. Adobe does allow you to mix and match Identity types so you could use 'Federated ID' to manage your internal users and 'Adobe ID' to manage third parties. In which case you many want to restrict the level of access that those using the Adobe ID have. If your company uses something like Azure Active Directory, you may be able to use this to allow authentication on to devices not on your corporate network. This wouldn't be locked to an IP address range but could enf...

One of the greatest things about Adobe Analytics the ability to share data/insight etc. However, when it comes to managing the sharing of segments/calculated metrics this is difficult as there is no way to filter based on who the segment/calculated metric is shared with. Given the emphasis on sharing within the tool it would be great if this gap could be closed. Please could a 'shared with' filter option be considered in the segment manager/calculated metrics manager similar to the exiting ones ...

We are making great use of the component 'tags'. However, it would be really useful if Adobe enhanced the 'out of the box' tags to allow some additional granularity:#MetricsAt the moment all metrics are lumped together but it would be great to be able to quickly filter on:calculated metricscustom eventsdefault metrics (e.g. page views, visitors, evar instances etc)#DimensionsAt the moment all dimensions are lumped together but it would be great to be able to quickly filter on:custom propscustom ...

The system for tagging components is really useful in Adobe Analytics. However, something that would be significant enhancement for us would be to be able to search for components that are not tagged with a specific tag i.e. exclude from the list of components returned those containing specific tagsPlease could this be considered?

Just wondered if this was on Adobe's radar at all?Using Ad hoc to do this used to be my 'go to' answer for those people who'd ask the well meaning but flawed question:'Can you tell me the top 10 journeys on the site?'Top 10 Journeys only probably account for 0.00001% of visits (so pretty useless), but what they were really asking was how do users get from 'A' to 'B'.We could really do with some way to answer this in Analysis Workspace... please

Thanks Alan, I loot at the API documentation but it didn't look like you could get at the component curation set up of a VRS through the API unfortunately.Anyhow, component tags have come to our rescue as we've been able to work around this issue by tagging all the common components that we want to include and then filtering on that tag within the VRS component set up page. A bit of a pain having to go through and tag each component but at least it's a one off job rather than having to do each V...

It would be a massive time saver if it was possible to copy the set up of one VRS to another existing VRS - particularly the component customization settings.We have many existing Virtual Report Suites that we are trying to align. One of my poor analyst is currently facing the prospect of spending days of his life going through and aligning thousands of components between these multiple VRSs. Alternatively, we'll have to remove all the existing VRS and start again which causes it's own problems....

Just wondered if there was a reason why you wouldn't put all you data into one report suite and use virtual report suites to split back out? Is it a performance thing or something else?

Our biggest problem with this behavior is the following scenario where we have an application process that users can apply for several products through.We wanted to have a fallout report for the different steps with a panel level segment drop down filter for the different products over the top of this. However, if a user applies for more than one product in a visit data from one products shows in the fallout for the other which is a real pain It means you potentially have to build out 20 fallout...

One thing that has tripped us up is that panel level segments are not applied to the fallout report in the same way as Ad Hoc Analysis.To recreate the same affect you have to add the segment to every touchpoint which is a pain.I was wondering if Adobe might consider aligning this?

Adobe have changed the way fallout reports in Analysis Workspace apply panel level segments verse previous tools such as Ad Hoc Analysis (As described in this Fallout help article)Hit level segments applied at a panel level are not applied at a hit level to each touchpoint in the fallout visualization. Instead the fallout ignores the instruction and applies the segment at a visit level instead. It means you get some weird effects where data that you would not expect bleeds into the fallout.We ha...

Is it possible you have a conflicting Adobe Analytics processing rule which is overwriting the value with just the URL path?Can't think of any other way data would be affected between data warehouse and the reporting interface.

Yes, I think you've understood what I'm getting at.At the beginning of your original post you said you "work a lot with the previous page dimension"So I assume you've got access to both:a custom prop or an eVar which is capturing 'previous page'and the out of the box 'page' dimensionI'm suggesting breaking down 'previous page' by 'page', which in affect becomes a 'next page' report(If you don't have a prop or eVar with 'previous page' captured into it then you should get whoever looks after your...

'Next page' in a table format:It sounds like you are capturing the 'previous page' into a prop or an eVar and using this as breakdown on 'page' to see what the previous page was.Conceptually you can just reverse these dimensions to get a 'next page' reporti.e. when you break 'previous page' down by 'page', previous page = page, and 'page' = 'next page'Does that make sense?

Nice idea. I think you'd also need some kind of auto-refresh option for the Workspace so the data remained current.

To directly answer your question, you can absolutely set an event without having to use an eVar.However, the reporting in your post should be possible through segmentation/a calculate metric without using an event or an eVar at all if you've got your implementation right. Whether you are capturing the 'contactussubmitted' as a page view or as a custom link tracking call you should be passing an identifier that you could use to segment on to create this ('page' [name] on a page view, or 'custom l...

I'd actually like to be able to get at time between any two hits.I'd rather not be limited to just where we have implemented events as use cases will come up where we don't have events set. e.g. How long did it take to get from step 1 to step 2 of the application process?It would also be good it the fallout report showed average time between touchpoints.

One of the problems we've ran into in the past is where a particular data set has some outliers (e.g. one really high value). The auto formatting then seems to use this to set the limits for the formatting. It then doesn't show the nuances for the majority of values which are in a much narrower range.

That's really useful - I couldn't figure out how to do this with segments but this works really well!I also found a work around for isolating the first page view:Use processing rules to set an event every time the page URL existedserialize the event to record once per visitThis means the event only gets recorded on the first page view (all other attempts to set are ignored due to the serialization). The event can then be segmented on.Not sure if there was a pure segmentation way around the first...

The centralized management/linking of segments and calculated metrics is great for speedy maintenance, but there are some key scenarios where I really wish I could break the connection to the master segment/calculated metric (e.g. so changing a segment no longer updated previously linked versions of the segment used else where).An obvious scenario is where a panel is copied as a starting point for new panel - In this case any changes to the calculated metrics or segments in the new panel also af...

For most normal dimensions you can only generate dynamic columns for the top 5 items. 5 is a very small number (I needed 8 the other day and was stuck!) - is there any chance of increasing this? If there are performance worries, even a small increase to 10 or 20 would be very useful! The feature can be seen here: Dynamic Columns In Analysis Workspace Freeform Tables | Adobe Analytics - YouTube
