@BretGundersen Oh is that right Bret? If so, the text could be clearer.Status: Classifications have been imported and will appear in all related reports. The "will" is rather vague. You seem to be suggesting it really means "Classifications have been imported and are available in all related reports."

Ben, which one? Remove Visitors, Change Visitors to Daily UVs or provide a real "Visitors" for any time range?

Totally with you there. Sometimes we have to pull data from different points that mean equivalent things, so the percentages quickly become meaningless unless you understand them. I've had to explain this to report users more times than I can remember. Often to the same people!

And the funny "Expand" functionality is pretty lame. It's not like you can do anything with them in the same view.

This drives me absolutely nuts and would be so trivial to fix! The important parts of our report suite names are always chopped off -- the bit that tells us whether we're in dev or production.

Totally agree. Discover for exploring, DW to get it done with real numbers. This is how you can justify sampling, because the real numbers are available.

Editing classifications across multiple report suites
Avatar

So I select a bunch of report suites and go to edit the classifications to make them consistent. "The classifications for this report do not match for all report suites. Only classifications that match exactly can be viewed and edited across report suites." Now wouldn't it be helpful to tell me which report suites aren't exactly the same?

Enable commas in product strings
Avatar

Right now, it's apparently not possible to include a comma inside a product name in SiteCatalyst. I presume this is some hard-coded limitation inside the data processing component. The solution is to strip commas from the source data. This is a bad solution. Munging data is just a bad idea. I can just see someone down the track, who doesn't know the story, doing some perversion or other with the data from SiteCatalyst and wondering why the numbers don't align. Then wasting a day or more before r...

Single classification upload to multiple variables

We use the SiteCatalyst video reporting system to track video playback across our network of sites, but it doesn't record everything we want about video. We also record some performance metrics like buffering time and buffer underruns, so we have to record the video identifier as a prop and eVar. To get the unique video identifier classified, this means we have to upload the same update files three times to get the video classifications, prop and eVar all classified. The processing at the Omnitu...

Attach company login details to support tickets

It seems rather strange that I have to login to submit a support ticket, yet the person reading the ticket always has to ask my login and company login. Surely they can be passed into the ticketing system automatically? And how about a multi-select dropdown of the report suites so I can tell you exactly which suite I'm talking about?

Let me know when my classifications have been applied
Avatar

Currently there is no way of knowing when my automated uploads of classifications have been processed and are available in my reports. I get a notification email that the FTP file has been accepted, but it can take anything from a few minutes to a days to process the classifications themselves. What's more, the notification email tells me how many lines had no effect, but doesn't tell me which lines. An additional notification email should be sent to advise that the classifications are available...
