How many users were aware of Ad Hoc or were using Ad Hoc that said they preferred Workspace?I have plenty of user I recommending Workspace to as it is a vast improvement over the SC interface. It is going to give them more self service options and ultimately make what they do easier. However these are not our power users. Those like myself that spend a significant amount of time in Ad Hoc are not looking forward to this forced change and feel that were are losing more than we gain. Those things ...

For my team we're going to move to using more SQL based analysis for deeper analytics once Ad Hoc is sunset as the current tool set won't allow for the types of analytics we currently do. Once that happens Adobe will have lost a lot of what makes it desirable as an Analysis tool.

Is it an open forum to discuss the poor decision to end Ad Hoc?

I will second that opinion. One thing Adobe has taught me is to use the right tool for the right job. Ad Hoc is still the right tool for active analysis.Worskspace is a nice addition and upgrade to Reports and Analytics and the visualization tools

I have found that the lack of people using Ad Hoc is do to people not knowing about. I have talked to many analyst at different companies (some at the Adobe Summit in Vegas) and they did not even know about Ad Hoc. The low usage is likely due to lack of communication that the tool even existed.To me this sums up the tools nicely. It's about using the right tool for the right job and Workspace is not the right tool for deep and complicated analysis.

This is definitely going to be a blow for myself and those I work with. We live in Ad Hoc on a daily basis.Workspace is nice for building out reports for non-Analysts but trying to drill down into data to get insights is slower. Just getting started takes more time due to the lack of a Table builder. Much nicer to assemble all the components and then run versus having to add every piece one by one.Workspace feels to me like the much needed upgrade to the Reports and Analytics interface.Please le...

Thank you. Client care did refer me to that option and good to know that it actually works. However I still have a fundamental problem with the out of the box dimensions being populated incorrectly. I know I can suppress access to those dimensions from non-admin users but when something like this is incorrect (and by all appearances knowingly) it makes me question what else in the tool is wrong.

I have just found out that the Mobile Screen Size and other screen size dimensions are fundamentally incorrect. This has been explained to me as due to the iPhone user agent not providing details that allow Adobe to distinguish between devices. The way this is handled in the report is to treat all iPhones as early generation (iPhone 3 or earlier) devices. Meaning that when you pull a Mobile Screen Size report the traffic reported against 320x480 is dramatically overstated. My response from Clien...

I'd like the ability to create metrics that measure site progression. Essentially to take the results of one step of a fallout report and create a metric. That way I could easily see across multipel dimensions (browser, device domain) what percent of visits move from my cart page to step 1 of the checkout process I have attempted this in Ad Hoc by applying a fallout segment to my numerator and a segment to represent the starting page to the denominator of a calculated metrics. That works for rep...
