Re: Impromptu Classifications jeff_bloomer - Adobe Analytics
@Blaine_Nilsson - YES!!! I am HIGHLY interested in this functionality. In fact, if you made it possible for the user to do just WITHIN the Workspace Report, I believe you would then be able to open this up a bit more than just restricting it to Admins.For example, I'm in a report where all of my values all start with:category_categoryX_productName_itemIndexI would love to immediately create the Classification that ignores the first two values, and then displays my data by productName and broken ...

Re: Revenue getting associated to 'unspecified' bucket in... jeff_bloomer - Adobe Analytics
@cwjg- Thanks for the clarification. With this in mind, I would recommend that you review your redirect script going from abc.com to store.abc.com. We had to ask our developers to persist the campaign ID from one URL to the other when the user crossed to the other site. I also recommend reviewing Adobe's documentation for cross-domain tracking. Hope that helps!

Re: Revenue getting associated to 'unspecified' bucket in... jeff_bloomer - Adobe Analytics
@Smukherjee- I need to get some clarification. Are you saying your root domain is different on your eCommerce site? ExampleHome Site: www.domain1.com (this would be your home site)Ecommerce Site: www.domain2.com Or is is the ecommerce site a subdomain like ecommerce.domain.com? What I'm trying to understand is, where are your users "landing" upon interacting with the campaign tracking code?

Re: Revenue getting associated to 'unspecified' bucket in... jeff_bloomer - Adobe Analytics
@Smukherjee - Your suspicion may be correct if you have any kind of redirects handling the transition from one site to another. We had similar issues a long time ago when we were taking our users from our base domain over to the ecommerce site. If the domain is different, that will also cause you problems, because of third-party cookie issues. Does any of this sound like what's happening on your end?

Re: [WORKSPACE] - Add Images jeff_bloomer - Adobe Analytics
@jen_lasser - Understood, but this is becoming more of an issue for me recently, to the point that I'm likely going to have to start inserting hyperlinks in my text descriptions to take people out to supplemental documentation. Definitely not my first preference, but it looks like I really don't have another option. Definitely hoping this doesn't take super long to solve. It's really too bad you can't leverage the technology being used right here in Experience League. Thanks again!

Re: [WORKSPACE] - Add Images jeff_bloomer - Adobe Analytics
@jen_lasser I know you've been busy, but after the most recent "New Features" presentation you did, I was really disappointed we haven't moved forward with this one yet. Is there any update you can give us that lets us know where you are on the "investigating/implementing" roadmap?Thanks in advance, and hope you and your family are staying safe and healthy!

Hiding Panels in Adobe Analytics Workspace jeff_bloomer - Adobe Analytics
Good Morning, Adobe Product Team/@jen_lasser! Currently, in Adobe Analytics Workspace, if I want to "hide" any section within living report, the best I can do is simply minimize said panel and move it to the bottom of the page, but that does not necessarily accomplish what I would like to do.Oftentimes, I am working ahead on sections that I may want to include in the report as a future section, OR I have a section that I swap in and out, depending on specific elements being reported for that dat...

Re: Adobe Workspace Performance DOWNGRADE jeff_bloomer - Adobe Analytics
If I had that option, I'd use it, but I have to open a Citrix box just to use Firefox, which creates a huge lag in and of itself. Incognito adds just a LITTLE bit of a performance lift, but not much. I haven't changed much in the amount of content over the past year, so it's definitely the tool somehow.

Re: How are Marketing Channels set for non-first hits of... jeff_bloomer - Adobe Analytics
Yes, but there is one caveat to remember: Two marketing channels may never receive credit for the same event (such as purchases or clicks). In this way, marketing channels differ from eVars (where two eVars might receive credit for the same event). Also, unless set differently, eVars typically expire after a session, whereas Marketing Channels have a rolling 30-Day expiration.

@evolytics_brian, I should note that @marc_richard with your group is responsible for aiding me in my understanding and also helping our company with setting up the majority of our Marketing Channel Processing Rules. In fact, @yuhui-bc, I highly recommend Evolytics when it comes to understanding Marketing Channels or Campaign Tracking if you're ever in need of a good consulting company.Anyway, yes, this is spot-on. The other important thing to note about Marketing Channel processing rules is tha...

Re: How to track inactive/disabled buttons on the website... jeff_bloomer - Adobe Analytics
@SivaprasadGunji, I particularly like this approach, because it provides weight to the items users are interested in viewing. First of all, Adobe Analytics is not the first or even the best tool for capturing impressions. Just getting an impression of ALL products that are disabled with "add to cart" on any given screen may or may not give you an accurate picture, plus, you're going to start capturing a lot of data that may not even mean as much as you would hope. Just like an internal search, a...

Adobe Analytics Workspace Visualization CUSTOMIZATION jeff_bloomer - Adobe Analytics
I am going to invoke a couple of names like Tim Wilson and Brent Dykes when submitting this idea, because Adobe Analytics Workspace is currently very limited in its capabilities for us to do what these two visionaries have recommended we do in order to provide BETTER metrics to our audience. Adobe, YOU are supposed to be the leader in Digital Metrics, and so I implore you in giving us the tools to give us the means to better tweak the metrics we are trying to present to our data consumers. We ar...

Re: Adobe Analytics Login process - Very bad jeff_bloomer - Adobe Analytics
Agreed. Incognito mode is probably going to be your best bet, but I've also found that Macs seem to have more problems (anecdotally) sometimes than PCs. This is what I have seen via colleagues in the business environment. However, I've noticed that when I'm encountering issues, the best thing to do is to try incognito mode first. I did eventually clear out all of my cookies in Chrome and use a WIRED connection, and then that seemed to help me get my situation fixed at the time. Fortunately for m...

Adobe Workspace Performance DOWNGRADE jeff_bloomer - Adobe Analytics
I don't know if anyone else has observed this within the past four to six weeks, but I really feel that whatever "improvements" Adobe promised would "speed up" Adobe Analytics Workspace have actually significantly slowed it down its performance.It's not like the data sets I work with have suddenly become that much larger. We're still working with the same data we've been using for quite some time.A good example is copying a filter right next to itself. Right-click a Segment (filter) while holdin...

Re: Adobe Analytics Help Documentation (Or Lack Thereof) jeff_bloomer - Adobe Analytics
Gigazelle!!Long time no see! So glad to be hearing from you. I wish that was a LOVE button instead of a LIKE above. This is all good news to me. I'm sorry if what I said above sounded like complaining, but I just tend to be super candid about how I feel about things. I guess you could say I'm very passionate. Anyway, I'm very glad, and I like the documentation git. Works much like a Wiki, so I will definitely take a look, now that I'm aware that it's out there and let other colleagues know it ex...

Adobe Analytics Help Documentation (Or Lack Thereof) jeff_bloomer - Adobe Analytics
I was really hoping that when you moved to a more updated version of online Help Documentation, there would be some level of improvement. I was unfortunately mistaken and very much disappointed with the outcome. I ended up saving ONE link that I use on a regular basis to share with users, because the definitions are extremely helpful, and today - IT DIED. In fact, a whole bunch of them died.https://docs.adobe.com/content/help/en/analytics/components/metrics/visits.html https://docs.adobe.com/con...

Copy/Paste Visualizations Between Projects (Mandela Effect) jeff_bloomer - Adobe Analytics
Call me crazy, tell me I'm experiencing the Mandela Effect, but I could SWEAR before you went and implemented the Report Suites at the PANEL level that I could copy a Visualization on a project, go to an open project in the same suite on another tab of my open browser, right-click a visualization and then select Insert Copied Visualization. In fact, I have to have done this enough times that this can't be a false memory. Otherwise, WHY WOULD I TRY IT?? This is really frustrating, and it's creati...

Segments at the COMPONENT Level in Analysis Workspace jeff_bloomer - Adobe Analytics
Now that you've made it possible to have panels individually created at the Report Suite level, I would submit to you that it would be highly advantageous to also be able to add a Segment at the COMPONENT level instead of having to insert into the table itself. Just like we're able to drag a segment into a Panel, we should be able to drag segments into Components, too.This gives us the ability to have control over INDIVIDUAL component data and not have to keep building separate panels because of...

Re: Marketing channels vs. tracking codes: revenue discre... jeff_bloomer - Adobe Analytics
The simple answer is not so simple. Remember that Marketing Channels are entirely based on the RULES you create, so until you sit down and establish the rules you decide you want to control your Marketing Channels, your revenue coming through them could be entirely misleading at best. Then, you'll want to understand first touch, last touch, etc. Next, with Tracking Codes, you need to determine how long they are living before they expire, which will help you understand how they are contributing t...

Re: Content Type visits do not match up with total visits jeff_bloomer - Adobe Analytics
That's what I was talking about when I mentioned the crossover. You're not seeing a UNIQUE representation of your visit numbers across your content type, which is why I don't recommend the Grand Totals on these kinds of displays. They just create more confusion. igorm75245240 is 100% correct in his illustration and took it further than I did in my explanation, but you can see why this gets so confusing so quickly. Deduplication is the key here, and it is why, more often than not, why you will ne...

Sorting of Components and Date Ranges jeff_bloomer - Adobe Analytics
Something that's always annoyed me is when I'm searching for available components. I do not particularly care for the fact that it does not arrange items in alphabetical order. I understand there are reasons for providing last used components, but the problem is you don't provide us ANY options to sort the results. We don't have the ability to have favorites or even a pallet we might place our most recently created segments on, etc. These would be amazing time savers when we're working with the ...

OK, so I would SWEAR, I just answered this, but I don't see my reply. So if you get this twice, I will apologize now.Here's what I tried to say the first time. Think about what what you're dealing with first of all. When you're talking about Visits, you're talking about a fundamental metric.Essentially, in the retail world, I've just walked in and out of your store. So what? Big deal! Nothing happened. I can visit a store all day and do absolutely nothing. That's boring.Let's talk about CONVERSI...

Re: Content Type visits do not match up with total visits jeff_bloomer - Adobe Analytics
This is one of those types of metrics where I tell the analyst to REMOVE the totals, because you should not be using them here.First think about a Visit anyway. How useful is a VISIT in the grand scheme of your metrics? A person walks in and out of your store... OK, next!What you REALLY need to be thinking about is CONVERSION events. Visits are your launchpad, but don't get wrapped around the axle on visits. You've got crossover happening on your visits from one type to the next, which is why th...

UNFRIENDLY and MESSY Looking Workspace Text Fields jeff_bloomer - Adobe Analytics
Something I do NOT like to be is a complainer, but I really don't know how to put this any other way, Adobe, and it REALLY makes me sound like I'm complaining. 😫 I REALLY HATE THAT!!! So then, how is it when I have a very neat and clean section containing all text, that a completely FUNCTIONLESS SCROLL BAR(???) still appears even though there's NOTHING TO SCROLL!! GRRRRRRRRRR!!!!!! That means I have to make the text area LARGER than it needs to be, JUST to get rid of it. That's just WRONG and i...

Re: Favorite Workspace Components jeff_bloomer - Adobe Analytics
@bgeorge_adobe - Two pieces of feedback:At this moment in time, it appears marking a component as a "favorite" has no effect in the functionality as of yet, other than giving the user the capability to filter on Favorite segments on the actual Segment Manager page - not really what I was looking for. Sorry to be a spoiled sport, but I was hoping to see something that worked for me within Workspace, which I assume you're using this as a first step toward doing just that, so I'm doing my best to b...
