Thanks - I tried that and see now, and that definitely wasn't obvious.
But it's not exactly what I'm looking for. For one, it doesn't support
ctrl-select to narrow in on a single row. But more importantly, it keeps
the dimension heading selected, which means there's still "junk" to
delete when I'm just trying to select a single value.I realize this
conflicts somewhat with overlapping functionality: selecting rows for
focusing visualizations, and quickly selecting rows by their dimensional
When I'm running a report in Analysis Workspace (dimensions as rows and
metrics as columns), is it possible to copy ONLY the dimension of a
table, and not the entire row? It seems I can select individual metric
values, but not individual dimension values.I'm constantly having to
delete the tab and metric values when pasting into other contexts. For
example:Copying URLs into the browser's address bar - I always end up
pulling the trigger before "cleaning up" my paste and generating 404s
When utilizing freeform tables in Analysis Workspace, it's very easy to
accidentally drag a dimension like "Day" into the column space when I
meant to drag it in as a row. Depending on the setup, this can create
many, many dynamic columns, to the point where data is no longer
visible, Adobe slows while retrieving a large matrix of data, and Chrome
slows to a grinding halt attempting to render everything. The only
option at that point is to destroy the entire table and start over,
since you can't...
My company has tens of thousands of products, and millions of articles.
Here's a pretty common request:I've attached a list of 100 products with
their IDs. We think we can bundle them into a new sellable thing. Can
you tell me how many unique visitors looked at them?I've attached a list
of 1,000 article IDs affected by this issue. Can you tell me how many
visits they had?My workflow varies:If I need user/visit deduplication as

My company is moving all users to federated ID so we can use our
enterprise login for all Adobe services. This is great and makes things
much more secure.I've noticed that for most Adobe products, I get the
choice to log in with my Adobe ID or my Enterprise ID. However, when I
click to the forums, I don't get that option. If I am logged in as an
enterprise user I'm actually forced to log out and log back in with my
Adobe ID. It makes switching between the product and the forums onerous,
so that ...
Your vendor probably meant that colons aren't great to use in URLs
because they are part of RFC 3986's reserved characters, since colon has
a special meaning in the URL. Technically, since colon has no special
meaning as part of the URL query string, they don't need to be
URL-encoded. However, Firefox is strict, and URL-encodes it anyway when
typed /pasted into the address bar.What's more, if your marketer is
building and testing the URL in Firefox, and copies it from the address
bar, it will pr...
Agreed! I have run into this a few times where I don't remember the
exact name of the dimension so I'll write, e.g. "ID" or "Title" only to
add another qualifying name and not find it. It would also be great to
be able to filter results post-hoc. For example, I may realize after
starting to type that I am interested only in dimensions, not segments
or metrics, but in order to filter to just dimensions I have to delete
my keyword, click "Dimensions" and then search again.
Bret, We run into similar issues here - lots of researchers mining our
content. I like your idea of IP address classifications, but we get
enough traffic that many (61%) of our IP addresses show up as (Low
Traffic). Regarding your question of reporting on bot traffic: I don't
want to pay for these requests. It's interesting, but not worth the
add-on to our contract. We have apache logs and Kibana or Splunk do what
we need to do. A game-changer for me would be if we could extend bot
rules to incl...
Especially since you're a supported user! I'm guessing there are some
consulting companies that deal with multiple clients at multiple
organizations, so that's why they ask. But if your email address is the
supported user for only a single organization, they really shouldn't
@benjamingaines the new feature is great. I ended up moving this to
report builder to get the granularity needed and use of calculated
metrics, so the workspace solution saves a LOT of time in managing that.
I couldn't find updated documentation, but does the AW solution use a
30-day rolling training period and 95% confidence?
I see a LOT of requests here, when I search, for rolling dates.
Advanced/dynamic date range creation has been available in Report
Builder for a very long time. Ad Hoc only has pre-configs or static
ranges. In Analysis Workspace, the ability to create a custom range and
then choose it to roll is almost there, but not really, because it still
doesn't fit the very simple use case above, one that most other BI tools
offer. We also do a lot of our reporting out of Report Buildier with
Hi Philip, Regarding this point:Another option would be to allow us to
upload IP/Domain mapping tables to supersede and supplement the data in
the Domains report.We copy IP Address to an eVar using a processing
rule, and then utilize SAINT Classifications to upload IP2Location data
in. Unfortunately, you can't really hide the "Domains" report in all
interfaces, so along with other out-of-the-box reports that we've copied
and classified (e.g. referring domain), it adds to the learning curve
Actually, while we're at it, why is it BRIGHT WHITE but the rest of the
UI is at 50% transparency? Feels like it should be the other way around
- and the UI should be at at least 63% to be WCAG AAA compliant.
I think it's safe to say that most of my users don't know that "Be"
means "Behance" (or what Behance is) nor what "Retoka" is. At first I
thought it was a CSS Font bug like we sometimes got in DTM where we got
a flash of unstyled text. The label is meaningless to analysts,
non-functional, and presented in a similar fashion/style to other
functional or hierarchical elements relevant to the screen. If it were
at least faded out to 30% transparency it would be clearer it's just a
DTM has support for eCommerce events such as prodView, but it has no
native UI for setting the products variable! Right now, the official
documentation suggests using custom code to set it. This is the worst
variable in all of the collector code to work with. The syntax makes our
engineers downright angry. On top of that, the recommended way of piping
Satellite variables in means that you may need to make 6+ calls to
_satellite.getVar() to construct it. Having a sensible UI to set the
@MikeT1 - I appreciate the response, but would it not be possible to
simply do that using a custom condition and returning "true" if all
criteria are met? Still, that requires custom script to handle 3 checks
that I can do separately through the UI. Most of the business users who
are working with DTM are not UI engineers, but more marketers and
analytics-types who have a good-enough understanding to set up rules in
the UI, but whom I wouldn't want adding custom code to the site. The UI
Currently, all conditions specified on a DTM rule must be met in order
for the rule to fire. So, if I want to fire a metric or a rule on a
certain set of pages within DTM, and they don't have one single common
value, I either need to use regex matching on the same exact data
element, utilizing the "OR" operator to match multiple values, or I need
to set up multiple rules. This becomes very painful when I also then
need to ensure that the rule doesn't fire twice, by also adding regex to
__josh, I am not experiencing what you are describing. I started
ensuring that my (non-async, adobe-only) rules that fire at the same are
alpha-ordered and they still fire out-of-order. This is a frustrating
missing feature of DTM.
Hi _JM_, Event serialization doesn't count at the visit level. So, we
can't answer a relatively simpe question like "how many visits did we
have where people looked at 2 products?" I've worked on several
different products' implementations now, and this is continues to be a
question of every team focused on the ways users engage. We can't
possibly fit session ID and the product ID in to the 8 characters upon
which serialization happens. Segmenting by instances of a product view
event doesn't acc...
We would like to be able to take a report suite that is already
collecting data, combine it with a segment, and create a new report
suite/alias. In other words, we would like to filter the data that goes
into one report suite, using a segment, and create a filtered view. This
would be similar to functionality that exists for Google Analytics.This
would help in the following situations:Filtering out "bad data" that
can't be retroactively removed, but can be segmented out. (it's a pain
I think we need to merge the promotes on this

We have found that 628,000 IP addresses, or 23% of IPs that have
accessed our site in the last two months, do not resolve to a domain in
the Domain report. This is despite the fact that the first 20 no-domain
IPs we tested are listed in APNIC and commercial databases like
IP2Location with a domain. Additionally, domain is only so useful, as
it's often the ISP's domain and not the registering organization. We're
looking into using a third party data source to bring this information
in, but surely...
Additionally, using session ID at time it is recorded would only
serialize users who have cookies enabled; Adobe does an additional bit
of visit-level processing which more accurately identifies visitis even
when cookies are off. So, even if we could include a visit ID an a
product ID, we would need Adobe to insert the visit ID post-processing.
This would be much more straightforward as a built in option in the
admin. I have been asked at mutiple jobs "how many users viewed more
than 5 products ...
