I've only taken AD0-E202, as AD0-E208 is new. Unless they changed the AD0-E202 exam in the last year, a number of the questions were very in the weeds with how Adobe Analytics worked and the whole thing felt a bit dated. Reading through what someone should be familiar with in order to pass AD0-E208, the description sounds like the exam deals with the way that you'd interact with Adobe Analytics today rather than 5 years ago. I'd consider AD0-E208.

Do you capture the timestamp in a dimension? If you do, and that timestamp contains the date, then you may be able to create a calculated metric using approximate count distinct. Note that you can use approximate count distinct with a classification of the timestamp dimension, which you'd likely need to do in order to isolate the "day" component. For example, create a "Day Number" classification to extract "05" from "2021.05.26".This won't give you an average outright, but you can use it on a ta...

Have you tried to creating a visitor segment? You could try using 4 containers, with each container containing a date range and the pages requirement. Use the "and" option to join the containers.

Is there a publicly available list of which referring domains Adobe considers to be search engines? The "Search Engine - Natural" dimension provides a friendly name rather than the referring domain, and applying a segment in which "Search Engine-Natural" exists to Referring Domains is resulting in a lot of domains that are definitely not search engines. I can use a segment in which "Referrer Type" equals "Search Engines", which works better, but was curious as to whether there was an official li...

You can set up a classification for the variable in your report suite and then use Classification Rule Builder, as the moderator has indicated.An alternative is to create a segment in which the value of the variable includes a particular parameter. For example, a visit segment in which the entry variable (e.g. Page Name, if an s.prop) contains "facebook" (see screenshot for an example of how you could set this up).Next, you can drop this segment into a blank freeform table, just as you would a d...

I had a similar situation last year in which there was a wholesale change in implementation. Ultimately, most of the comparisons had to be done outside of Adobe Analytics. The primary reason for this is that stakeholders didn't want to look at different dashboards or different panels within the same dashboards in order to draw conclusions. We export key data points from Adobe Analytics into a data mart, and were able to do some SQL magic to make our Tableau visualizations look continuous. The be...

Description -One feature of the Segment Builder is the ability to use existing segments when building out a new segment. I'll refer to this as a "reference segment".Once the reference segment is dragged into the Segment Builder it becomes "disconnected", and is more like a snapshot of what the reference segment looked like at the time. If an update is made to the reference segment this will not be reflected in any other segments that use it. It would be nice to have an option to "anchor" the ref...

Definitely sounds like something that classification rule builder would work well for. I am also unsure about the "metrics" part. He should be able to use most metrics with the classifications, but "grams" won't be treated as a number.

Think of the Entries metric as a subset of the Visits metric. Many pages may be associated with a single visit, but only one page is the first page viewed (i.e. the entry). When applying Visits or Entries to a dimension, such as Page Name, you should always see Visits >= Entries.

It's an older site, but perhaps https://www.metamodpro.com/browser-language-codes can give you an idea. There is the base language (e.g. Dutch, or "nl") and the qualifier (e.g. "-be" for Belgium).

There won't be a specific user-agent string to look for, but you could try to detect things like images being disabled or high contrast mode being enabled via JavaScript.

Initially, I was seeing Segment C > Segment A + Segment B. I went back to the project the next day, and Segment C < Segment A + Segment B. I can't explain why this happened, but am glad that this resolved itself.

I've tried Segment C as both a visit container with the Segment A and Segment B hit containers inside (using OR), as well as a hit container with the Segment A and Segment B hit containers inside (using OR). The visit container approach results in a slightly greater visit count.

Hoping the community can help me out with a segment that I'm trying to build. I have two segments, Segment A and Segment B. These segments use hit containers. When I create a third segment, Segment C, that says "either Segment A or Segment B" and apply all segments to the visits metric, the number that appears for Segment C is greater than the sum of Segments A and B. This shouldn't be possible. Any ideas as to what is going on? EDIT: Both Segment A and Segment B use hit containers, and both req...

This will work as long as you leave the "Include Unspecified (None)" option checked in the Analysis Workspace table. If you uncheck it and the eVar is not set on every call (i.e. there isn't a value set in 100% of visits) then the Total and Grand Total values will be different. Adobe uses the "Total" as the denominator rather than the Grand Total, so you'll wind up only comparing an eVar value to the total visits with the eVar value.

If you are building this in Analysis Workspace, by default metrics included in a Table show both numbers and percentages. If you hide the Unspecified value, the percentages appear should show you the Percentage of visits with this error. What it won't do, however, is show this in a different column. If you want a separate column called "Percentage of visits with this error", you could create a calculated metric that only includes visits and is called "Percentage of visits with this error".

While I agree that Ad Hoc is superior to Analysis Workspace when it comes to speed and certain functionality, you'll need to plan to not be able to use it anymore. It's EOL is March 2021. Some Ad Hoc functionality, such as being able to export large numbers of rows, has recently been added to Analysis Workspace.

You're going to have to head to Stack Overflow for this. You're going to have to sift through everything that happens in the console when an auto-translator is used, and this is going to vary between browsers. I recommend https://stackoverflow.com/questions/62998768/detecting-auto-translation-event-in-microsoft-edge as a jumping off point.

Unfortunately I cannot provide the actual key values, but "Widget Makers, Inc." is a made-up value that has a similar format (i.e. commas and periods) that is currently not working in the classification file uploads. Nothing has been altered in the first four header rows of the classification template, and v:2.1 was the default version value. Note that the values being used to classify the key do not contain any special characters.

I am having trouble classifying keys for an s.eVar that contain special characters. For example, a key may look like this: Widget Makers, Inc.

I've tried placing quotation marks around the keys, but this also has had no effect. Any suggestions from...

While that is a possibility, stakeholders received scheduled reports (PDFs) with the graphs also empty. That is unlikely to be caused by a browser extension.

Most of the line graphs in my Analysis Workspace projects are now blank, though the underlying data is there and tables don't seem to be impacted. Refreshing the project doesn't fix this issue. Has anyone else experienced this? I'd like to know if this is a known issue that Adobe is working on fixing, or if this is outside of Adobe's control and I need to update hundreds of charts.

The recent Adobe Analytics UI update changed how the site navigation menu options function. Previously, clicking on a menu category (e.g. Tools) would direct you to a page showing all items available in that menu, and hovering your mouse over the menu category would results in a list of options being displayed. Now clicking on the menu item opens the list, but does not take you to the category main page. This adjustment hasn't negatively impacted my experience with the site. The change that has ...

That's an interesting approach. I had already created classifications for price groupings (e.g. $250, $500, etc. increments), and with prices up to $100,000 I may increased create these calculated metrics by group. Not quite the ideal, but it's worth experimenting with. Hopefully Adobe figures out a replacement for numeric classifications.

Have you created classifications for the Product variable? I've found that this has been a big help when it comes to handling dimensions with a ton of values, such as Campaigns. For example, let's say that the 300 products you referred to are "T-shirts". You could create a classification called "Product Category", and use "T-shirts" as one of the values when you upload the classifications. This will allow you to create a segment that will limit the Analysis Workspace table to only show "T-shirts...

One way to pass visitor IDs between properties is appendVisitorIDsTo (https://docs.adobe.com/content/help/en/id-service/using/id-service-api/methods/appendvisitorid.html). Note that you can either store this in a variable (e.g. an s.eVar), or could try to set the ID being passed as the ID for the second application.
