This is especially important for discerning between iOS6 and other
iOS's. When Apple removed the referrer in iOS6, we needed to use the OS
version to estimate the amount of direct load traffic that is really
I do weekly and month to date reports in ReportBuilder using rolling
dates. The month to date rolling start date is "cm" so that we can start
at the beginning of the month. The issue is after the last week of the
month, in other words during the first week of the following month, "cm"
ends up pointing to the beginning of the following month. This messes up
the end of month reporting and requires either a set up to refer to
dates in the spreadsheet, a manual changes of the requests, or a
I find that I have to make changes almost every time I download. I know
that they want to keep the initial default at 50, but it would be nice
to be able to change that default by user. That would be a helpful
When I export from SAINT, most of the time I only want the latest
versions of each entry. Instead I get the entire history. Client Care
has said that there is no way to get this. There should be a check box
or the like that lets you have only that.
There needs to be an ability to turn off Data Warehouse email
notifications for a given periodic report. Getting the alert without
being able to turn it off just fills my email box unnecessarily and is
In both the Visit Number Report and Days Before First Purchase Report,
there are no bucket ranges possible. It's just a list of rows. Buckets
allow you to consolidate data and get a much better view of trends. The
only way is to export into Excel and then manipulate. There should be a
way to set them in a custom fashion by range, number of them, and
order/sort them by label arbitrarily. The same would go for the Return
Frequency Report. The preset buckets sometimes seem to obscure the
I hate to compare to GA, but they have this. SiteCatalyst is still
better, but sometimes there's a report or two that is so useful that
it's surprising that it isn't in SiteCatalyst out of the box. Days
Before First Purchase Report is good, but I want to be able to see the
ongoing Days Before Purchase. Then I would like to use segments to look
at first time purchasers or anything else it's capable of showing. I'd
also like an ongoing Visits Before Purchase as well.
I'm sure this was left out due to the row/sampling limitations. They
didn't want to anger anyone. However when I am looking at campaign
reports, there is no indication as to how many rows are in the report.
To understand that, I find myself constantly putting in an impossibly
high page number to find out. It would be so much easier if it was just
listed on bottom of the report (e.g. "1-50 of 1,293").
We have a typical ecommerce site. Many times I will be looking at a
specific page in the Next Page Flow Report and will see that users go to
various product detail pages among others. Most of the time I don't care
which product page they went to. Instead I want to know where the
traffic generally flows by Site section from a particular page .
Currently this report is just page to page or site section to site
section. So I need to export the complete listing and manipulate it in
Excel to get the ...
I would love to be able to apply calculated metrics to the site wide and
see the trends. For instance in the Cart Conversion Funnel you can see
the Order Conversion (visits to orders). Why can we not see that across
time. Why do I need to create a ReportBuilder spreadsheet for that?
Version 15 seems like a really nice upgrade. I just wish it wasn't going
to remove Pathfinder. That is the one report that saved my bacon and
number of times when a pathing question came up. It really should be
In the Entry Pages report, you can graph by either metric or
percentages. However you cannot do this in the Exit Pages or Single View
Pages reports. It seems arbitrary, especially since the percentages are
listed in all of the reports. There should be a consistent selection
between the two. Sometimes one is more relevant than the other.
