Quick Tip: Discover Time Saver!!
Thanks to Laura MacTaggart, I just learned an awesome Discover time-saver I felt obligated to share.
Have you ever needed to pull a bunch of different successive reports in Omniture Discover? Maybe you want to look at Pages, then Visit Number, then Campaigns, but for each you want to see the same metric columns. If you are like me, you open a new report and then have to re-add all of the metrics that you want to see. If you are looking at a lot of reports this is very tedious and can drive you crazy. However, I just learned of a “hidden” Discover feature that can avoid all of this (maybe you all knew about this, but I certainly didn’t!). Here is what you do:
- Open the first report you want to analyze
- Add the metrics you want to see
- When you are ready to see the same metrics for a different report, simply right-mouse click on the name of the report (above the rows of values as shown below – in this report you would right-mouse click on “Pages (Traffic)”)
- Select the “Change Report” option and select the new report that you want to see!
Presto! You are now looking at a different variable report using the same metrics without having to re-add all of your metrics…Coolness!
