Bump and a +1 for this - is there a fix planned for this
yetjen.lasser?tbh i think a huuuuuge number of people will just be
making this mistake and not realising it counts unspecified - which will
be very skewing, given it's usually by far the largest single value in
any dimension.......not sure i would have been comfortable letting this
one run in the wild with this bug for so long if i were you guys!(P.S.
When this feature works properly it's going to be AWESOME!!! just keen
to see it count ...
Currently, when clicking the 'show %' option in a chart in workspace
gives the overall % of the metric over the time period, which is next to
useless analytically and waaaaaay less commonly used than the
alternative - i.e. the % that appears in the column as a the respective
dimension value's % of total values.It would be much more intuitive and
useful if the 'show percentages' option showed the dimension value's %
of total for each day / week instead.
Totally agree. This is very frustrating, especially when building
dashboards. In dashboards, it's usually essential to build in context,
yet this means that I am restricted to setting up a report only for
'current month' and hence have to create my dashboards only at month
ends! We need need need to be able to activate these date comparisons
manually and choose at least whether to include the standard '4 weeks
prior' or '52 weeks ago', or even better choose a custom comparison to
include, as in ...
Agree, particularly from the Segmentation point of view in v15.
Invariably I find myself needing to compare a segment's results with the
All Visits segment. It would be great to be able to do this in one
report (a la Discover), rather than having to run two separate reports.
Currently, when running reports at a 'daily' granularity, the date
format when downloaded (into .csv or .excel) appears as e.g. "Nov 1,
2011".This format is very problematic when dealing with reports in Excel
and always requires a transformation. It should instead be populated in
a format that Excel could recognise as a date.This is particularly an
issue when extracting Data Warehouse reports, where one is likely to
have many rows per single date and it is therefore more time-consuming
Agree - seems odd that the default trended view for site metrics is
there (vs 4wks / 52wks ago) but then there is no control over looking at
this over custom date ranges. Google Analytics does this very well,
allowing compare date ranges to be selected for all reports. Tim.
Definitely a great idea - I've only just started using Calendar Events
and to be honest I just assumed they would work this way, otherwise
they're nowhere near as useful! I was expecting them to have a 'Push to
users' option, just like on Bookmarked reports. Tim.
The biggie with this one for me is the fact that it seems to do it
'backwards'. I.e. if i'm setting a dashboard / bookmark with a date
comparison, to get the 'change' metric to show up correctly (i.e. this
value went 'from' X 'to' Y), then I have to anchor on the earlier
(green) date range. This causes problems when trying to set a rolling
date range. e.g. I can't set up a dashboard that does a comparison of
'Last week' vs 'prior week' (as the rolling options will revert to
'daily' if I set it u...
