Admin-defined default drilldowns

Our users get very confused with the different options for drilldowns in reports. Without a deep understanding of how the data is recorded, ordinary users can't reliably make the right choices. I'd like each prop and eVar to be able to have admin-defined default drilldowns, so that we can go through them and decide which ones make sense. Obviously for power users, there needs to still be the "Advanced" option of drilldowns.

Make order of legend match order of colours in graph

When using a stacked bar graph, the legend reverses the order shown in the graph directly underneath. This forces the reader to do mental contortions to interpret the graph. And would undoubtedly be a one-line code change. Example below with random metrics that don't make a lot of sense together to illustrate:

Data Extracts, Data Warehouse and plain report exports as CSV almost always use a format that requires some wrangling to get working in Excel, and are really difficult to import into other formats. For example, a simple Data Extract of page views by hour gives some output like this: Hour,Page Views 12 AM May 9,25921 1 AM,14771 2 AM,8485Straight out of the box, Excel formats that first line as 1/05/2009 00:00, which is clearly wrong. The second line only contains the hour not the date, which make...

@katyn15 Except the GA real-time reports don't include the most important part: conversions! So Adobe, please ensure we can get conversion events on our real-time dashboards.
