In Analytics, it is now possible to compare a selected time range with the same time range of the previous year.

  • The comparison time range is available in KPI analyses and sparklines.
  • You can compare data of today with data of the same day of the past year.
  • You can compare data from the current week with data of the same week in the last year.

You can use all options with the "Matching weekdays" feature.


To define the comparison time range, use the sliding window option and specify that the resulting period should be “in the last month, quarter, or year.” This option is available in addition to the current procedure where the resulting period precedes the time range of the element directly.



Release date: October 01, 2018

Whenever you use “today” in comparisons, the corresponding day is compared up to the last hour for which today's data is available. This gives you a more useful comparison value since same periods are compared.


Sparklines are the exception as the trend is relevant here.


You can now use any raw data metric or formula for a meaningful comparison of today with yesterday or another day.

Examples

  • KPI Analyses (comparison variant)
    If “today” is included, the corresponding day is compared up to the same hour of the last data update of today. So you compare "today until 11 o'clock" with "yesterday until 11 o'clock", which gives you a meaningful result.


  • Sparklines
    In sparklines, the trend is more relevant, so the total time range compared is not limited to the hour of the last update for that day.



Currently, it is not possible to display time information about an hour in minute granularity. The tooltips do not indicate that the comparison uses data up to the last update of today. We will add this shortly.




Release date: October 01, 2018


To better understand the data within a report, especially when "today" is included, the date of the last update of the raw data is available as meta information in the tool and the export.


Please note the following points:

  • This date is the date when the raw data was updated, and it only appears if raw data elements is included.
  • The date represents the last data update, regardless of the report and reporting period.
  • The date does not give any information about the actuality of the data when the report or analysis was calculated.


Release date: October 01, 2018


The following navigation enhancements are available with this release:

  • The search function has been added to the dropdown menu:
    If a dropdown list contains a large number of entries that can be selected, you can type the first letter of an entry. You will then see the selection options that begin with the letter you entered. This makes it easy to find the content you need quickly.

  • Within the "Custom filter" dialog and in the drop-down lists, navigation is possible with the keyboard:
    Elements in focus are marked with a blue border.
    You can use TAB to jump to the next element.
    You can use SHIFT + TAB to jump to the previous element.


  • When you select an account, the currently selected account remains visible and is marked as such in the list.


Release date: October 01, 2018

In Webtrekk Q3, it is now possible to export files ad hoc according to the defined dispatch interval. For this purpose, you have the new option "Use dispatch interval" in the configuration mask for exporting raw data.

To better reference a row in a table in Analytics, we have added a column of numbers to all analyses. You can activate this column for standard, time series, and comparison analyses. Click the [#] symbol to add the line number.


Please note the following points:

  • Number columns are only displayed in simple, non-interlaced tables.
  • This number column is correspondingly visible in a PDF export, but not in CSV and Excel-files.


Release date: September 04, 2018


When you run an analysis in Analytics, you are now informed in more detail about the queue:

  • if your calculation is currently running, this will be displayed accordingly
  • if further calculations are pending within your Webtrekk account, your position in the queue will be displayed.

Obfuscation of Tracking Requests

In order to minimize the block quota of tracking blockers as far as possible, the recognition of tracking requests for ad blockers is made technically more difficult. This is achieved by

  • a random string is appended to the tracking endpoint (wt) for each request.
  • the order of all tracking parameters (including "p") is randomly generated for each request.


Example

http://q3.webtrekk.net/999955867561122/wtc2l42m?cg3=home&cdbeid=c100fd2bbad6e4c107b39b7861c03060&tz=2&cs1=0&one=0

1531491500231,0,1647x850,1&la=de

Please note that this feature is disabled by default.


You can activate the feature as follows:

wts.push(['requestObfuscation', 'true']);

The total line in Webtrekk Analytics now features improved calculation logic. Instead of adding up all lines of an analysis, the sum is "unique" depending on the metric, i.e. multiple counts, e.g. of visits and visitors, are combined.

Pivot lists now also have a total line in which this new calculation logic is applied.

The roll-out of this functionality will take place step by step across all Webtrekk accounts and will be completed within the next few days.


Example

In an analysis with the dimension "days" and the metric "visitors", a visitor who visited the website on three different days was previously shown with the value "3" in the sum of the analysis. With this new calculation logic, the multiple counts have been combined so that this visitor is shown with the value "1".

The total line is now called "Total" (previously "Sum").


Note that if the analysis is sorted by dimensions, for example, for dimensions that are an ID (visit ID, order ID), the conventional calculation is currently used instead of the new calculation.





Release date: August 01, 2018


It is now possible to map processes when you copy reports across accounts.

If the original report uses processes there will be a check if the same process exists in the target account:

  • If there is an identical process (configuration and name) it will be mapped automatically.
  • If no, there will be another check if a process with only the same name exists. If this is the case, you are asked to use it or create a new one.

While migrating reports from Webtrekk Q3 to the Webtrekk Suite, reports containing A/B comparison are now considered.

The following restrictions must be observed:

In cases a report cannot be migrated, because, for example, a used segment does not exist anymore, or a dynamic time range was used, which is not yet available in Analytics, the migration process will be canceled.
