Re: Temporary Passwords for Users

This is good to have. Dealing with users and their password isssues has been a hassle. The workaround I've used is to always use the same generic password when setting up the user account, always use the same Welcome Email message that includes that generic password, and force all new accounts to change password on next login. But you're right, that should automatically be handled without me having to do that.

Processing Rules Tester
Avatar

When setting up processing rules you are not always sure youwill get the desired outcome, especially with suites that contain many rules. It would be great if there was some functionality to run the processing rules against a test string to see if the desired outcome is what I was expecting. For example, I would be able to enter my value somewhere, and see what it would look like after all of my processing rules ran. Currently it is way too difficult to do any real testing to ensure the desired ...

Re: Make bot filter a report and/or a segment
Avatar

vabeachkevin1

Couldn't agree more. The current bot report is a great idea, but I would prefer it was done in two stages. First enabling the report would just let you identify all of the bot traffic, then we should have the option to filter out that traffic. Identifying if we want it filtered after it gets filtered is a little bit of a backwards approach. The ability to identify our bot traffic and know before hand the impact of filtering it out before we take that step would be a great addition to have.

Add getValOnce functionality in processing rules

In processing rules, I woud like to see an option when setting up a condition to preform the action if the value of a variable has changed since the last time it was recorded. So for example only copy the value of prop1 to eVar1 if the value of prop 1 has changed since the last time it was recorded during that visit. I understand that processing rules cannot read cookies, so it would need to go back and look at the previous hits in that visit to check for the value. This basically will give us t...

Ability to force a variable to lower case

- Adobe Analytics
I would like there to be a way to force variables to lower case from the admin console. There are a couple ways to make it happen. When setting up a prop or an eVar there could be the option to "force all to lowercase" so I wouldn't see ford, Ford and FORD in the report. This could also be handled by a change to the processing rules as well. There could be the "force to lowercase", "force to uppercase", or "force to propercase" options for any variable. I prefer the processing rules method, but ...

Purge all data from prop when it becomes reused

I would like to ability to purge all of the values from a prop when I want to repurpose it. For example, if I capture time of day in prop1, but later decide that prop1should be current url, It would be nice if all data that prop has captured could be purged so there are no problems when viewing that prop overtime. I understand that this could be vary powerful so it should be something that I would have to call client care to do.

Agreed. This should be turned on for all report suites by default. If I want it off I can call Client Care to have them turn it off, but it should always be on when a new report suite is created.

Remove s_code version number from page code
Avatar

vabeachkevin1

vabeachkevin1
- Adobe Analytics
Whenever there is a s_code update the users need to change the code version number that appears in the page code to remain consistent and that is not needed. In fact the code version number is not needed in the page code at all. It is in the s_code file and can be seen in the debugger so having it in the page code is redundant. I have many sites that use v21 or better s_Code files, but the page code still says v15. Can you please remove the version number from the page code comments?

Right now if I want to see metrics trended over a multiple year period, the chart that is displayed starts at the first date and extends to the last date, with only a single line on the chart.

One single line.This is the option I would like to have, one line per year. This makes it easier to see the year over ...

Even though SiteCatalyst is the more powerful, preferred web analytics solution, the HBX tool is still a decent tool. There is no reason to completely pull the plug on it. Maybe strip out a few of the features to make it a bit simpler of a tool and then release it as a free web analytics product so it will compete with Google Analytics and the other free offerings out there. This may help Omniture gain some of the overall analytics market share. If a user is using a free product from Omniture, t...

Better error notification for Data Warehouse
Avatar

vabeachkevin1

vabeachkevin1
- Adobe Analytics
When a Data Warehouse report fails we are not notified. We have to check the Request Manager at random times to try to see if it is still processing or if it failed. And when it did fail, we are not told why. A better error message in the UI (and sent in an email) would be useful. Also an automatic resubmit of the report if the error was not due to something on my end would be good. I obviously want the report, so I should not have to resubmit it myself.

More customization options when generating a s_code file

When generating a new s_code file, there should be options to add in some custom elements. I should be able to just click a check box and have the Media Module added to the code. This could be expanded to to include some of the 'Omniture approved' plug-ins. For example I could click a button saying I want the Time Parting plug-in, and then which props/eVars I want to use with it. Then when the s_code file is generated the plug-in is added and those variables are now enabled and named properly.
