I cannot figure out what I am doing incorrectly. I can apply the Units
Metric to a Category value and get the correct result but when I try to
build a calculated metric using Units and a segment for a category the
results don't match. Example I have 2 categories for products; Flights
and Ancillaries. When I use the units metric against those I get the
correct results Flights 1768 and Ancillaries 581. However when I try to
create a calculated metric for just Flights Units (Category=Flights
I have a header menu where there are a few options for visitors to click
on. All the options use a button[class=menu-link] element (123x65).
Within each button element is a smaller span element (93x20) for the
text of the button, e.g "Book A Flight". I do not want to restrict the
click to the span as it is small and would rather capture the event off
the button element. All the other buttons however in the header share
the same button[class=menu-link] attribute and no other elements to
Should I have set something up to track the above behavior that happens
prior to a purchase event? If yes what is the recommended method? I have
tried a few ways I thought tell me but as of yet no luck.
Would be nice to have the ability to add a calendar for setting the time
frame to an individual Freeform component. That way we could easily
compare 2 different time frames more easily, e.g. Compare Nov 2018 to
Nov 2017 without all the data for Dec 2017- Oct 2018.
So a couple of comments, I was merely responding to your comment"If you
create an alert based on that normal metric, and set it to trigger on
anomalies, it should automatically trigger on a YoY anomoly"I set up the
work space as stated above and the "Preview" indicated the alert would
have triggered 1 time in the prior 30 days. But my data looks as though
it should have been triggered twice on a year over year basis.Secondly,
how can I be certain the anomaly flagged is for a year over year
Ok so I created a very basic alert for Orders in one of our report
suites. Ideally I would like to have it alert if there was more than a
negative 15% change year over year. I can't set the threshold so I
created the alert using a "anomaly is below expected" at a "90%
threshold"According to my data (see below) at a -15% change threshold
the alert would have fired once since May 8, 2018. At a -10% change
threshold the alert would have fired 4 times since May 8, 2018. And
twice in the last 30 days...
Interesting I wonder why know one made me aware of that given I have
been trying to get something in place since last April and ultimately
Adobe customer service and engineering both said its not possible to
have alerts on a YoY comparison. See ticket 180418-000305 under Sabre
Global companySo how would I set up the work space to have the YoY
anomaly detection in place and then how to create an alert based on
What I need is to be able to create an alert that compares a metric for
yesterday (single day) to the day (single day) 364 days prior.
ExampleCompare visits for the day Wednesday October 3 2018 to visits for
the day Wednesday Oct 4 2017. I do not need an alert that’s compares an
entire year to the entire prior year. Meaning I do not need an alert
that compares visits for Oct 4 2017- Oct 3 2018 to Oct 4 2016-Oct 3 2017
I would like the ability to set up simple year over year daily alerts.
Our industry is very cyclical and/or seasonal on a daily, weekly and
monthly basis. Trying to set up day over day, week over week or month
over month alerts is not feasible. I have done the analysis on basic
metrics; visits, transactions, etc. and I see the variance for the highs
and lows for those comparisons as follows; Day over Day: -47% to
+148%Week over Week: -51% to +150%Month Over Month: -71% to +142%When I
do a Year o...
Thanks Gigazelle, What about the Adobe documentation for scheduled
reports that states "Important: Ad Hoc Analysis lets you quickly define
and schedule reports for specific, timely, ad hoc reporting needs. It is
not designed for full exports of data with a massive number or rows,
columns, metric evaluations, or extensive breakdowns using data
extracts."That sounds like the type of report I am needed to schedule on
a daily basis. And can you confirm the delivery time for a daily report
from ad ho...
I was actually trying to set this up as an ongoing report in Report
Builder but for some reason it wont let me add additional eVar
dimensions after I add the first two. I was hoping workspace would work
(so I could schedule it) like Ad Hoc (especially given workspace is
replacing Ad Hoc) where I can set it all up in one step and add many
break down dimensions and set the number of unique to show and the
number of elements to break down. In this case I would set it up to show
1000 of the primary ...
I have a work space with multiple rows (200+) of values for an eVar. I
want to breakdown all 200 rows by another eVar and then I want to
breakdown each of those breakdown rows by a 3rd eVar so that each of the
orignal 200+ eVars has 2 breakdown rows. I can get the first breakdown
done for all rows by selecting all the rows of the first eVar. But when
I then select all the rows with their breakdown and try to add the 3rd
breakdown all I get is the last row selected to have the original eVar
Thanks appreciate it.Does Adobe have any plans for a different solution?
As it stands now I personally have a couple of concerns1. This is in
essence is an email going out to our customers branded as Adobe, we
would prefer to have all communication to our clients be branded for our
organization not as Adobe.2, The default From is a no-reply Adobe email
box. Even though all our reports include an email address for contact
most people are going to use the Report email and click "Reply" when

pretty low threshold and as of yet they have not worked. Currently

Thank youDo you mean right click and “Add time period column”? I don’t
see an option when I right click the metric value or the metric label
for a “Compare date Range” in the menuWhen I do that it still doesn’t
work. I created a new work space. Dragged in the dimension the yesterday
dimension (4/16/18), added our Orders metrics and then right clicked and
selected Add time period column. I created a custom rolling date for
Yesterday YoY, selected that and it shows zero (0) orders for 4/17/17.
Anyone else hear about the From field in Report Builder Scheduler
Advanced Options being removed? And going forward all reports delivered
out of Report Builder will have a 'From' of Adobe instead of an email
address from your organization?They are stating this is for security
reasons? Customer Care could find no announcement or documentation of
this change and we are not real happy about this.Jeff
Thanks at least that’s something but ideally as I mentioned I need a
daily alert more due to the fact we operate multiple web sites all with
releases and changes occurring at different times. But I’ll think about
your suggestion to see if there is an adaptation of that I can use.What
I don’t understand is year over year is one of the most common type of
trend reports used for Ecommerce organizations so I do not understand
why it would have to be so difficult to set up a daily year over year
I admin over a web site with very seasonal and cyclical patterns (even
within in a single week), as most eCommerce sites are so I am hoping
this is not a difficult thing to do.I want to set up daily alerts that
monitor transactions on every day either on a month over month or better
yet a year over year basis. Meaning if the transactions change by more
than 25% when compared to the same day of last month ( e.g. 4/5/18 and
3/8/18) or 1 year ago (e.g. 4/5/18 and 4/6/17) send an alertSo is there
