SiteCatalyst Unannounced Features
Lately, Adobe has been sneaking in some cool new features into the SiteCatalyst product and doing it without much fanfare. While I am sure these are buried somewhere in release notes, I thought I’d call out two of them that I really like, so you know that they are there.
Search Within Add Metrics Dialog Window
You can now use a search filter within the Add Metrics window to easily find the metrics you want to add to a conversion or traffic report. Simply enter the search area and begin typing:
Weekdays & Weekends in Metric Reports
A few years ago, Adobe added the ability to filter metric reports by Mondays, Tuesdays, etc. This allowed you to look at the same day (i.e. Monday) over the last few months to see how a metric changed on each subsequent day of the week. However, one gap that remained was the ability to filter by weekdays or weekends. I am pleased to report that Adobe has now added these as valid filters in metric reports as shown here:
Create Segment From Fallout Report
When Adobe added sequential segmentation to the Analytics product, another “unannounced” feature emerged related to the Fallout report. Now when you launch a Fallout report, you have the option (shown in red below) to generate a new sequential segment using the items currently in the Fallout report.
When you click on the link shown above, you will be taken to a screen that looks like this:
From here, all you need to do is make tweaks or save the segment.
I am guessing that there are a few more unknown new features so if you spot one, please leave a comment here so we can all enjoy! Thanks!
