Unshare All
Avatar

Hopefully a very small / easy request that would make life a lot easier. The ability to share with individual users and groups is great however on a relatively frequent basis we need to make a lot of changes and manually having to search for each user (or group) one at a time to unselect them is a massive pain. Is there a way you could add an "Unshare All" action so when we want to unshare all or unshare all to add a handful of people back on manually it's not quite as onerous?

Event Visibility & Data Warehouse
Avatar

I did contact Client Care about this as I believe it's a bug / defect but they advised it's working as per design, if so the design would seem to be a bit flawed.The introduction of visibility control for an event was a great idea (though I'm still waiting on the same for dimensions). The concept of hiding except for builders so the front end isn't bombarded with unnecessary events makes a lot of sense, we can rely on calculated metrics to surface what we want, how we want and with any necessary...

Re: Server Call Usage Improvements
Avatar

It's not a perfect solution but I've found that the "Occurances" metric (which is the sum of page views / hits AND page events / custom links / secondary server calls) is very close to the server call volume. We have an Excel / Report Builder dashboard that just summs the "Occurances" for every report suite scheduled.

I was about to write this myself until I found this one so brilliant idea! We have the same problem and even with something like "Visits" we have a massive self-serve user base and some of them probably even need some clarity on what that is.One thing I would suggest adding though, if I may, is also include the ability to 'tag' out-of-the-box / standard dimensions and events. We find the tagging system really useful for giving calculated metrics, segments and workspaces a tag to group, identify ...

Segment & Metric Versioning
Avatar

- Adobe Analytics
On a frequent basis we often find that because we have so many segments and calculated metrics, we use them in so many different places and we change them so often it can become a bit of a nightmare to manage. A bit part of that is on us to find processes to manage them effectively however something did occur to me which would make this 1,000 times easier... versioning!Similar to the file control you have on One Drive or Dropbox the ability to see the history / changes that have been made and re...

Re: Entries and Exits in Data Warehouse
Avatar

trucallinglife

trucallinglife

I'm not sure if this is due to Adobe introducing the dimension but there is a dimension called "Clicks to page" which you can use as a dimension to see where it's equal to 1 and therefore an entry. It appears you can also segment on this but it's called something different "Visit page number" so you can run a Data Warehouse request either with "Clicks to page" as a dimension to see all dimensions where "Clicks to page" is equal to 1 or create a segment where "Visit page number" is equal to 1 and...

Re: Change Data Warehouse weekly granularity requests to return actual dates instead of week numbers

Has any progress been made on this, we're having to use ETL tools to import this data based on filename rather than being able to just do a direct import as the week numbers don't match our week numbering and even if they did would require another lookup table to match it to a real date?

Ability to Remove a User Expiration
Avatar

There is the option to add a user expiration, and to change / extend it but not to remove it so if you accidentally set an expiration or for example somebody decides to leave the business but we manage to retain them we can't ever remove that expiration. Minor but slightly annoying.

I can understand the complexity behind the enablement of that, the challenge is for example we have three different ways to order so we capture each in a custom event and use a calculated metric to get the total. Attribution is obviously a big topic and therefore we want to be able to understand what for our total revenue but can't use that in a number of features in Workspace, e.g. Attribution and Histogram Visualisation. Which makes the new exciting features rarely useable and we end up pullin...

Attribution IQ & Calculated Metrics

So the idea of Attribution IQ is market leading, ingenious, great, fantastic, we love it BUT it's really annoying not being able to use calculated metrics directly in Workspace. I know you can create a new calculated metric with a model applied but you can't use a calculated metric in the Attribution IQ panel or apply a model on the fly to a calculated metric in your workspace.JenteDR​ - not sure if this helps with the question you'd asked in the forum.

Currently going through migration from legacy analytics logins to the new Experience Cloud User management it is TERRIBLE.

Here's a few examples:I create a product profile, let's say analytics. I get to the permissions tab and decide I want to add almost all metrics but perhaps not social ones, as we don't have social.

Data Feed Log Information

While it's unusual we're a relatively large business and sometimes rely on the logs within the admin section to identify who made a change in certain situations. Currently Data Feed changes don't show up under the logs, these are particularly important to us and any changes can severely impact downstream processes in our business if changed without prior planning and notice. Could changes to these be added to the logs so we're able to identify who made a change, when they made it and to which fe...

Make Report Suite an Available Dimension

- Adobe Analytics
In theory this may seem unnecessary given if you're in a report suite all data is coming from the same place, however, due to the fact calculated metrics can be used across report suites if you want a single calculated metric with some minor differences between report suites then you have to create multiple metrics. If report suite was a dimension you could use it in conjunction with an IF formula to return a slightly different result for each report suite, that would make it much easier to buil...

I LOVE the calculated metric builder and I've started using some of the more advanced functions to start producing some much more useful interactive Workspaces. One wall I've hit though is that if I want to create a table of top products that match metric criteria such as "show me conversion for products with more than 1000 visits" when I rank in the opposite direction all I get is 0%. While this is technically accurate it means I can't create a table of those top products I'm just ranking the m...

Currently within Reports & Analytics and Report Builder current data is an option however in Workspace it's not. Current data is incredibly valuable to us but the flexibility within Reports & Analytics isn't sufficient however Workspace would. I'd like to see an option to enable current data in Workspace as well.

In the interest of re-raising the profile of this one I was advised at the Summit that this functionality exists in SiteCatalyst which I wasn't aware of however upon investigation you can click on a column heading and reverse the sort order however it's still not available in the "add metrics" pop up or report builder.

This is not already offered, when you generate a report you can select which metric to rank by but you can't set that to ascending or descending. I've checked and I have the latest version, I'm happy to record or do a screenshare and demonstrate, it's very, very annoying! It's a pretty obvious function.

Pre-Defined Segment Remove or Change

I've been getting quite a few questions about why "my" purchasers segment isn't returning data as expected. The answer I have to give is it's a pre-defined segment that I can't change or remove. The pre-defined segments are not fit for purpose for all businesses, for example we have multiple purcahse methods not just one so the purchases segment actually filters out more than half of our business. Can we be given access to change or even remove or hide those segments so that it doesn't generate ...

Sort A-Z, Z-A and Variable

Appreciate this has been covered a few times but to flag up the issue again; I find it incredibly odd that you can sort A-Z / Large to Small but you can't do the reverse, there are a lot of situations whereby the reverse is required and we've eneded up having to create calculated metrics with a negative symbol in front in order to allow us to sort correctly. Aside from that it's somewhat frustrating you can sort by any metric but not by the variable itself.

One of the most problematic features of Discover or "Ad-Hoc Analysis" is that every single change you make has to refresh the whole data set. What would make life so much easier is to have an "Auto Refresh" checkbox whereby if it's unchecked you can add metrics, segments, change date ranges etc but until you hit refresh nothing will happen. Sometimes it takes me an age to make all the changes I need because it has to refresh every time, if I could make a group of changes and then refresh it woul...

Obviously as an Admin you can create calculated metrics that are global, and therefore available in report builder, what I'd like to be able to do however is create calculated metrics that I can use in report builder that only I can see. I build a lot of reports and would really benefit from being able to put calculated metrics in to the reportlet but unless I make them available to the whole business I can't.

Currently if using anchored cells in Report Builder to reffer to, for example "Campaign ID" (Message ID), it will only return data corresponsing to the first instance of the correct casing, so will potentially not be returning all data attributed to "FB001" for example.
