Calculated metrics builder: Add 'Ctrl + Drag' to copy
Avatar

Being able to hold ctrl and 'drag' to copy an element is a really useful time saving feature that works almost everywhere except the calculated metrics builder.This is particularly bizarre given ctrl + drag does work in the very similar segment builder It would be very useful if the calculated metrics builder was in line with other areas - please can you consider this?

I haven't checked but I think list vars suffer in a similar way. If they do they should be considered along aside this.

Unfortunately, tags do not help users explore the content that is available to them.If the user already knows what tag to search for then it will let them quickly find content. However, if the user wants to browse what projects are available to them they can be stuck scrolling thru a long list of projects trying to find something relevant.A folder structure would aid navigation in this scenario.

I'd really like to be able to tie calendar events to specific dimensions/metrics (where appropriate).For example, in the old reporting/SiteCatalyst interface if we logged a calendar event because something significant affected our application start event, the calendar event would show up everywhere - it would be great if it only showed in a when someone was using the application start event.

Re: Do processing rules get processed before or after items bucketed in low traffic?

Pretty certain that processing rules get processed before the uniques limit is applied to a variable otherwise things that don't have the uniques limit applied (e.g. data warehouse, data feeds etc.) would have some serious issues.FYI - don't know if you are aware but the default uniques limit is 500K but you can get this raised to 1 million just by contacting Client Care (and if you ask your Adobe account team very nicely they might let you take it above that).

Unfortunately, I don't believe what you are after can be done for the reason that you outlined (exit page is session level, therefore there is no way to isolate the final page view)But you can vote for this idea that would make it possible...Make entries & exits metrics available in segments

Understanding where components are being used is essential to our ability to efficiently maintain and improve our workspace set up.As we are still waiting for Analytics on Analytics ( see Analysis Workspace: We need analytics on Analytics!​ ) one of the ways we have worked around this is to 'tag' segments, calculated metrics, and workspace project with the components they contain.This makes segment, metrics and project searchable by the components they contain giving us a level of traceability n...

Just had a random thought and wondered if the below might work as an interim solution...I'm assuming most people have come across the idea of creating a 'contents' Workspace project which just contains hyperlinks to other Workspace projects - this can be set as a landing page for users to avoid them seeing the default workspace project list and is another way to organise projects/aid navigation.I wondered whether this concept could be extended to create a hierarchy of 'contents' projects which w...

Finally got some time to go thru this in detail. As far as I can work out, the users experience does not match what is described in the help article: VRS and project curationIf it did work as described I think it would be quite usable. However, the key different is that if the VRS is curated, non-admins cannot access the segments and calculated metrics that they own.This is in contradiction to the help article that states non-admins should be able to access "Non-curated VRS components that the r...

I think this layout would be a much easier format to work with when exporting data as well.On the odd occasion where I do export data with breakdowns I seem to spend a lot of time reformatting the data into a more usable format. For instance, unlike today the above example format would work as the source data for a pivot table in excel with minimal/no re-formatting
