Thanks for implementing this. Unfortunately, this is only partially
working for me. The drag and drop functionality is working great, but
i'm unable to scroll through our extensive list of metrics on the iPhone
or iPad. Only the first 17 metrics are accessible. Hopefully this can be
fixed with a simple CSS change. Photo attached. -Matt
Thanks for chiming in nic. You're right. Just triggering an event with a
negative value alone won't cut it. Dates, evars, etc wouldn't match the
original event. But if you could use an event with a negative value in a
datasource with a transaction id it could link the "undone" event back
to all the original details of the transaction.
Ben, That's a good blog post and it describes the way we handle it now.
I know you guys are familiar with this problem. I think calc metrics and
"negative" events are an ok solution, but they create an extra level of
complexity that shouldn't be required. Try telling your CEO to "look at
the other revenue metric" or "that's not the order metric you should be
using". I guess it would be ok if we could hide these events from our
user's view, but still allow them to see the calc metrics that use th...
In the past, web analytics was about "consistency", not "accuracy". As
long as everything was reporting equally "inaccurate", we didn't care
b/c we could still get some insight from the data. It still happens
disabled, they are excluded from tracking. Now days we have some really
cools tools that allow tracking data to be more accurate then before.
These include "server-side" tracking libraries, datasources, and the
For the most part, the SiteCatalyst interface works well across the
major browsers. We also have the iPhone and Blackberry dashboard viewer
for mobile use. However, one relatively small change would go a long way
for all touch screen devices. Rework the metric selector! Right now the
only way to change metrics in a report is with a "double-click" or a
"drag and drop". This is IMPOSSIBLE on touch devices. It's also very
frustrating, because everything else seems to work great! The selector
Folder for Metrics!If you are anything like me, you would save a ton of
clicks (and time) with folders for metrics. I think we all spend a lot
of time selecting metrics for our reports. I find myself selecting the
same group of metrics all the time. If I could arrange my metrics into
custom folders (or default folders), and add all of the metrics in the
folder by adding the folder to my report, it would save a ton of time.
Plus it would allow us to organize our metrics to keep related metrics
This is more of way to make a good idea better, than an idea itself.
Here we go.. Many of us have users working in combination of internal
systems (intranet, CMS, etc.) and SiteCatalyst reporting. I often see a
user with a tab open to our internal tools and another one open to
SiteCatalyst. If we had the ability to link to a specific omniture
report from inside our internal tools it could dramatically improve the
integration of SiteCatalyst into our internal tools. ##E-Commerce
