Re: Prompt user before adding too many dynamic columns in Analysis Workspace dreisch-wiley - Adobe Analytics
Hi jen.lasser​ - I had considered this, but in the extreme cases of this happening, my browser actually locks up to any new input while it tried to render (and I have a relatively powerful machine.)

This is halfway solved by "equals any of" which I am super happy about. Thanks for delivering that feature.

Re: Let me copy dimension values only in Analysis Workspace tables dreisch-wiley - Adobe Analytics
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 label....

Let me copy dimension values only in Analysis Workspace tables dreisch-wiley - Adobe Analytics
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 this wayC...

Prompt user before adding too many dynamic columns in Analysis Workspace dreisch-wiley - Adobe Analytics
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...

Allow us to paste a long list into filters and segments dreisch-wiley - Adobe Analytics
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.

Allow enterprise users to log in to Adobe Forums dreisch-wiley - Adobe Analytics
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 ...

Re: Campaign Query Parameters with Colons dreisch-wiley - Adobe Analytics
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...

Re: Ad Hoc Analysis Search available in Workspace dreisch-wiley - Adobe Analytics
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.

Re: Segmentation: Bot Traffic Identification & Exclusion Tool dreisch-wiley - Adobe Analytics
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...

Re: ClientCare should know my company name dreisch-wiley - Adobe Analytics
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 need to.

Re: Improve Anomaly Detection UI dreisch-wiley - Adobe Analytics
@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?

Re: YOY trends/data dreisch-wiley - Adobe Analytics
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 Month-over-mont...

Re: Improve IP-to-Domain Resolution and bring in Organization name from WHOIS dreisch-wiley - Adobe Analytics
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 for n...

Re: Remove "Launch Banner" >Be Retoka< dreisch-wiley - Adobe Analytics
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.

Re: Remove "Launch Banner" >Be Retoka< dreisch-wiley - Adobe Analytics
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 watermark.

Add support for "products" variable to DTM dreisch-wiley - Dynamic Tag Management
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 specific p...

Re: Allow boolean logic/containers for firing conditions within DTM dreisch-wiley - Dynamic Tag Management
@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 already m...

Allow boolean logic/containers for firing conditions within DTM dreisch-wiley - Dynamic Tag Management
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 the secon...

Re: Control the precedence/order of DTM Rules dreisch-wiley - Dynamic Tag Management

Re: Count distinct values a variable takes for a visitor dreisch-wiley - Adobe Analytics
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...

Allow for filtered views / segmented report suites dreisch-wiley - Adobe Analytics
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.

Improve IP-to-Domain Resolution and bring in Organization name from WHOIS dreisch-wiley - Adobe Analytics
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...

Re: Record Event, once per visit per eVar value dreisch-wiley - Adobe Analytics
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 ...
