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?
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
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,
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
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
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
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...
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. I mean don't get me
wrong, it looks pretty but for a company that prides itself on user
experience (and a tool that's ironically part of the "Experience Cloud")
it's awful. 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. I have...
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
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
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.
I appreciate this can be partially overcome by setting to a merch evar
see my blog post about merch eVar's if you want more detail
(http://www.arcana-imperii.co.uk/?p=47) but I do agree with Neil that
there are scenarios where this doesn't help and in fact being able to
expire by multiple events would be a massive help.
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 ...
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.
I appreciate you can using a prop or eVar copy over the value from
Keyword in to one of these to classify but what would be really useful
is to be able to out of the box SAINT Classify traffic source keywords.
I expect this is the same with most companies but we want to be able to
build a report that is one column for SEO Brand Terms and one column for
SEO Non-Brand terms, which should be simple. Having to push this in to
another variable to classify seems unnecessary especially given it's not
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 would be incredibly useful to be able to create and save a template
in DataWarehouse, I appreciate you can "duplicate" a report, but I want
a template that includes the distribution method etc, effecitvly if we
have regular ad-hoc requests that go to the same people with the same
information but for different time periods it's a longer than nessasary
process when a previous request already exists with all the relevant
I think this is spot on, was about to post the idea myself, it seems
bizzare that the functionality isn't already there especially given that
while a simple feature calendar events are incredibly valuable if you
have a lot going on in your business all sorts of things can impact data
and we spend a fair amount of time having to go back through
spreadsheets to find out what the issue was.
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.
