I agree, but there is a known work-around.If you enter some ridiculously high number -- like 10000 -- in the page navigation, it will back you up to the last page of the report.

SiteCatalyst-like filter controls in ReportBuilder
Avatar

The current ReportBuilder filter lets you either exclude things or include them, but nothing more complex. In SC, I can do an overall "and" vs. "or" but on any number or mix of includes/excludes. For example, I want a report on all Channels/sections with the word "baseball" or "basketball" but none with the word "Front" to get traffic on all detail pages but not section fronts.

IMHO, I don't think that business model works for an existing paid product in this economy. A) You risk losing some paying customers who are looking to cut back and realize they can do without some features. B) You have to move/invest resources in a product line with no revenue potential. I know, open-source yada yada, but it still has to be managed as a product and maintained as a service by someone(s). C) You're entering an existing (free) marketplace as a serious underdog to Google & Yahoo. I...

Need option to get report Totals and line-item counts in ReportBuilder
Avatar

normcloutier8

normcloutier8
- Adobe Analytics
ReportBuilder is very powerful, but for us lacks two key elements from the SiteCatalyst UI.... 1. I can specify a number of ranked records to pull, but there is no way to get the report total that is provided on the bottom of every SC report page. 2. As stated in another idea for the SC interface, we need to also access the total number of line items, or unique entries, in any report from within ReportBuilder.

Surface "Number of entries" in SiteCatalyst & ReportBuilder

We often need to determine how many unique items (page names, sections, products, etc) contributed to the "total" metric in a report.We can sometimes try to page-forward some significant number to find the end -- thanks for that -- but it should be a something shown at the bottom of the page near the total.

With clearly established leaders in this space, isn't it time we classify FaceBook, Twitter, Linked in, etc. as you do with search engines? This is does not replace the need for: Make Referring Domains classifiable via SAINT http://ideas.omniture.com/t5/Omniture-Idea-Exchange/Make-Referring-Domains-classifiable-v ia-SAINT/idi-p/617 But it does mitigate it.

Add calendar-based frequency metrics (visits per day, week, month)
Avatar

normcloutier8

- Adobe Analytics
When we say we want to know "How many people visited my site 3 times last week?" and call the answer an indicator of loyalty, we are kidding ourselves. There is a big difference between someone who hits your site 3 times in one day and someone who comes back 3 different days over a given week or month.The former is what you could call "fleetingly obsessed." The others are loyal, habitual users. They are the ones we need to know about. The current visit metrics simply count visits and provide no ...

That looks promising. I think the key is to visually tie the lines to the axis to avoid confusion.Example: The colors reinforce the difference in scale. Another option is to use columns vs. lines.For charting multiple series per axis, you could use either color shades -- dark to light of color x for axis 1, different color shades for axis 2. Yet another option for multiple lines is to use same color but dotted, dashed variations to differentiate values.

I would recommend against this feature. Most websites see significant weekend traffic lulls. If you use this you would often be comparing disparate periods due simply to a reduced weekend count. i.e, Feb 1-10 has one weekend whereas Jan. 1-10 has two. Comparing full weeks is much safer.

Thanks for the tip. Still want full functionality in the product itself. It seems too often the workaround is to s.prop something Omniture is already recording. Plus, I need the full history we've collected over the months & years for comparison & trending.

Once I've set up a single classification for some variable in the Admin UI, I should be able to just add a new column in my SAINT template to introduce any new classifications thereafter. I should not have to go back into the Admin/suite/classifications UI to simply adda new entry every time.

Reports like "time spent per visit" default to the usual highest-to-lowest value sort. But data points like these have an important linear representation that is lost. 1. We need more data points. Every 1-minute interval should be represented up to 30, then 30-minute intervals thereafter. Let us use SAINT if needed to classify those into fewer data points. 2. The data should be represented in it's meaningful order, as in shortest to longest timeframe.< under 1 minute |||||||||||||||||||||1 minut...

Re: Make calendar events report suite specific

The asnwer seems straightforward: Suite-specific calendar events, but only admins can set them. A "hide-events" option in reports would be a nice addition, but it should NOT be a sticky option, i.e., events always on by default, but I can selectively hide while viewing a chart.

Make the default trending smarter
Avatar

normcloutier8

normcloutier8

When you switch from rank to trend, the report always defaults to "day" and you have to then change it. If my timeframe was 30 days, that's fine. But if my timeframe was 12 months, do months, if it was 52 weeks, do weeks. If it was 59 days, then I suppose days would still be the default; in short, save me the obvious step by setting the level to the nearest large-block-division of the selected timeframe.

Let users run correlations in a new tab/window

Correlations in SiteCatalyst are often a shot in the dark. Sometimes they hang, sometimes they show nothing of value, but they almost always interrupt my workflow. If I could right-click or otherwise have the correlation request run in a new tab/window, I could keep working on a project and check in on the correlations later, and be less annoyed if they fail or timeout.
