Re: Compare data from 2 different Report Suites

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...

Allowing segment updates to be reflected in other segments that use it as a reference
Avatar

- Adobe Analytics
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.

Re: Why visits higher than entries using Page Name?
Avatar

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.

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...

Re: Optional eVar as a percentage of visits
Avatar

brentrad

brentrad
- Adobe Analytics
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".

Re: Classifying keys that have special characters

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

Anyone else not seeing Traffic (i.e. s.prop) classifications appearing in Analysis Workspace?

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.

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 ...

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.
