There are several improvements that can be done in the report suite selection dropdown: 1. Clear separation between ASI slots and report suites. Would be good if the ASI also show which report suite they are built off along side.2. Allow selecting which Report Suites / ASIs show up in the list by default and the others couls show up in 'View more'.3. In case of session expiry (or some other cases) the new session sometimes starts with some report suite picked randomly (other than report suite be...

Several reports, particularly the correlations, subrelations and complex filters take a good amount of time to fetch. The user ends up navigating to some other work / different site to use the waiting time instead of seeing the waiting icon, sometimes leading to a session expiry. It would be much more useful if the user could be educated and entertained that time in that time by showing up some DidYouKnow stuff about Omniture, some Omniture/SiteCatalyst IQ Puzzles, or simple small games like Tex...

Surprised why nobody (including me) posted this idea yet !! Even when I keep feeling uncomfortable about the long process of Save to Excel, Open Report and Copy Paste into another Excel to get this done.

Admin Console allows you to specify Default Metrics. I typically put in Instances and Visits becase the darn Instance metric is truly 'omni-present' !!

Calculated metrics should allow Logical operations (AND, OR, NOT) as well beyond the basic math operations. Also, IF THEN ELSE like conditional statements should be supported in defining calculated metrics. It is really painful to export reports in Excel and then run macros or run these operations manually on an ongoing basis.

One of the most fundamental metric in web analytics – Visits – has no smartness or even customizability. Conceptually a ‘visit’ should represent a user’s single ‘interaction’ with the website. With multiple sites open in tabs side-by-side, very often people could remain inactive for more than the magic number of 30 minutes despite it being the same ‘interaction’.Example 1: When I plan for holidays, I search by myself (after lunch), show it to my wife (in evening) and then book a flight and a hot...

'Clickmap' shows up in the menu for admins only. There is no way to allow installation of it for other users - no reason to do so either since clickmap is not limited by number of licenses. So to install it on other users systems - I actually had to login on other systems with my admin login and then install clickmap plugin on their browser. Top management loves clickmap and it gets really embarrasing when you ask your them to let you take over their system for a couple of minutes! Can you pleas...

Here's what subrelations and correlations are: Correlations hold only for props. props do not have a 'life' and they expire on the same page (or PageView). For two props to be correlated they MUST be set on the same page. Subrelations are valid only for eVars. eVars have a 'life' and you can set them to expire when you want (like end of visit, purchase event). eVars can be subrelated even if they are not set on the same page. As long as two eVars are alive and a success event occurs - they are s...

@mckennagene - not really. you can just click (and keep left click pressed) on the start date. Keep dragging your mouse till you reach the end date and release. Your date range is selected - in one click only !!

I would rather want 'ascending sort' (thus seeing the last page metrics on top) instead of going to the last page.

This one is so obvious- very often I end up defining calculated metrics like 1/metric orTotal - metric to achieve the same effect, but its really annoying to do that.

As Adam rightly pointed out - that the product eVar, in particular, needs a list. Most sites have multiple products listed on the same page. Currently there is no way to fire prodView (or any other event) for several products on such a page. Much needed !

Thanks for pointing that out ! Am amazingly happy that the well tagged articles and whitepapers coupled with search bar in the knowledge base never gave me a reason to actually go and look into documentation menu !! (Good show from documentation/knowledge base team !)

Most sitecatalyst implementations end up getting a getValOnce enabled on campaigns thus giving the campaign responses exclusive of reloads and back button etc. very few people know of the Click Through Quality plugin which provides the Click Past and Total Click Through metrics. The Click Past metric is the equivalent of Bounce Rate for Campaigns and holds the same relationship to campaigns that bounce rate does to pages. For those who havent heard of it Click Past denotes the number of Visits w...

While some plugins are more known and easily available like time parting, getValOnce, apl etc., several others are very useful but quite obscure and inaccessible, like clickThroughQuality, getVisitNumber and many others I dont even know of !! I think that the scode plugins should be added to knowledge base making them easily available.

Hi, I agree with you on that. In addition, it would help further to identify non-issues if we could compare last week with average of three/four previous weeks etc. Have posted on the same: http://ideas.omniture.com/t5/Omniture-Idea-Exchange/Compare-Dates-should-allow-more-than-t wo-date-ranges/idi-p/455 For the time-being till we get such functionalities, I have resorted to using Excel Client to get the same effect - which of course has its own limitations of not showing subrelation reports etc...

Hi, By the time the visits metric is available for all the variables, you can consider using ' Unified Sources DB Vista Rule ' which - as its name suggests - combines the 4 traffic sources namely campaigns, natural search, referrers and Direct (none) to show them in a single eVar. You can get in touch with your account manager to get the same. Cheers,Gauravgyanalyst@twitter

For some strange reason, while user permissions can be defined to exclude props, events etc. but NOT eVars. Ironically, eVars happen to be the variables that I need the maximum control on.

I often come across situations where I want to match one variable or classification with another in a subrelation report. For example,Billing City = Departure City (to understand how often people buy tickets for flights departing from their own city)Gender = Product:Gender (to understand if the customer specified gender is same as what the product was targeted to)Campaign: Target category = Product: Product category (Did visitor buy the same product category for which the campaign was targeted)(...

Currently, conversion attribution to campaigns is universal i.e. if a visitor responded to a campaign “30% off on laptop” but ordered a food processor; the laptop campaign still gets an order attribution. While it is possible to subrelate campaigns and products (and their classification); it is very difficult to compare effectiveness of several campaigns in the same report. It should be possible to specify target product or a product classification for a campaign which then filters out any unrel...

Agree with you on the suggested success events attribution. However, that still does not solve the problem of overlap amongst sources in terms of visitors - even when they have not reached any success event - Just to understand the extent of 'redundancy' amongst campaigns (same visitor acquired through multiple campaigns) and also to understand some correlation between campaigns (what fraction of visitors who responded to iPod campaign also responded to iPad campaign).

The current classification hierarchies allow only one hierarchy per root. This constrains the hierarchies to be linear only. In most cases, particularly campaigns, I need many of the hierarchies to originate at the same root but have different classifications somewhere down the chain. For example, I want the campaign hierarchy to begin at the target product (laptop, camera etc.) and then I sometimes want to break it down by channel – like Paid Search, Banner Ads or at times I want to break it do...

One of the most important insight that all CMOs (and thus analysts) need is the RoI of each of the acquisition sources. With multiple campaigns and SEO running simultaneously, true understanding of RoI is dependent on understanding the overlap amongst these sources. The first-click, last click and linear success event attributions are far too elementary to bring out any insight about overlaps. Also, Unified Sources DB Vista and cross-visitation (campaign stacking) plugin have significant limitat...
