Re: Adobe Adhoc/Discover EOL, do you think it's replacable? Can Adobe make it EOSL? brentrad - Adobe Analytics
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.

Re: Classifying keys that have special characters brentrad - Adobe Analytics
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.

Classifying keys that have special characters brentrad - Adobe Analytics
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 made sure that the classification template file uses "v:2.1" and not "v:2.0", as indicated in https://docs.adobe.com/content/help/en/analytics/components/classifications/faq.html, but still get a message that the classifications are not uploaded. 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.

Line graphs in Analysis Workspace suddenly blank brentrad - Adobe Analytics
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.

Bring back open in new tab/window functionality for Analytics navigation ribbon brentrad - Adobe Analytics
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 ...

Re: Calculations with numbers stored as text in s.eVar brentrad - Adobe Analytics
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.

My client captures price in an s.eVar, and I am trying to figure out if there is a way to use the captured value in mathematical operations within Adobe Analytics.

Re: Mass upload of search terms in Dimensions, workspace brentrad - Adobe Analytics
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...

Re: Track Cros Activity between 2 Mobile Apps brentrad - Adobe Analytics
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.

Problem with verification prompts in Ad Hoc brentrad - Adobe Analytics
Has anyone else run into problems with the "Verify Your Identity" feature when trying to log into Ad Hoc? I've cleared all temporary files from Java, but for some reason Adobe won't accept the verification code that they send to my phone/email. As soon as the last digit of the six digit code has been typed in, the numbers all reset. I've put in a support ticket, but they weren't able to figure it out. Hoping that someone from the forums has a solution.

s.prop classifications not available in Analysis Workspace? brentrad - Adobe Analytics
Anyone else not seeing Traffic (i.e. s.prop) classifications appearing in Analysis Workspace? I see Custom Conversion (i.e. s.eVar) ones for our different variables, but for some reason s.prop ones don't show up as an option. We created the classifications several days ago, and the s.prop has values. Edit: the s.prop classifications appear in Ad Hoc, just not Analysis Workspace. All product permissions have been granted, and I have full admin rights.

Re: How to use Summary Change for dynamic/custom date ran... brentrad - Adobe Analytics
The main issue is that Date Ranges use today's date as the end date. For example, I have segments for "Last week", "Last month", and "Last Year". Because these are built in Date Ranges, the end is always today. If I change the panel date range from the default (This month) to December 2019, applying the aforementioned date segments doesn't shift everything back a month. What probably needs to happen is Adobe would need to add a relative option to the Date Range Builder interface. Currently, you ...

Re: How to use Summary Change for dynamic/custom date ran... brentrad - Adobe Analytics
My understanding is that "current" will always refer to the day, week, month, quarter, year associated with today's date. This means that it will likely be impossible to allow a user to select a date and then have all the comparison data update to be relative to that selected date. It's a bummer for sure, and I've wound up creating reports in Tableau to allow for choose-your-own-adventure date range comparisons.

Re: can I remove this traffic globally? brentrad - Adobe Analytics
I don't think that the traffic can be removed, but it can be filtered out using segments and a virtual report suite. How accurate the segments are depends on your implementation, since excluding all visits from South Korea may not be as ideal as excluding visits from particular IP addresses (you'd need to be capturing the IP address in a variable, as this isn't an out-of-the-box option). If you haven't created a virtual report suite already, you can get some decent information at https://docs.ad...

Re: Exclude Bots (Not Bot Rules) brentrad - Adobe Analytics
You could capture the IP address in a variable and then look for IP addresses accessing your site at unexpected rates. Most of the time you'll see bursts of traffic from particular IP ranges. Unfortunately, this is as far as you can get from within Adobe Analytics, and you'll need to see who the IP address belongs to via the different lookup tools available online.

Re: Snapchat preload to exclude from Analytics brentrad - Adobe Analytics
The reason I'd avoid using a bot rule is that the traffic isn't actually from a bot. Instead, it's from someone looking at an ad on Snapchat and the destination URL for that ad loading in the background. You may wind up advertising on Snapchat in the future without the pre-load function activated, and would likely want to know if people are actually clicking on the ad and landing on your site. If you label the traffic as a bot you wouldn't see those visits. The reason I excluded the Snapchat use...

Way to limit which segments/calculated metrics appear in Workspace without VRS? brentrad - Adobe Analytics
Is there any way to limit the segments/calculated metrics/etc. to the report suite selected in Analysis Workspace? I currently see everything, and with the same names used for some segments in different report suites it makes things a bit painful. I would like to avoid having to create a bunch of different virtual report suites, and manually adding the segments that I'd like.

Re: Snapchat preload to exclude from Analytics brentrad - Adobe Analytics
I had to deal with an ad agency activating the Snapchat preload without informing anyone of the decision, and it was a giant pain. I wound up creating a virtual report suite and applied a segment excluding all Snapchat traffic because most of it was not "real" (i.e. the ad preloaded but the "visit" didn't include more than one page). I used the User-Agent string in the exclusion segment. The string will include "snapchat" (or at least did at the time).
