Good news. Viewing your data in pMetrics from more than one day at a time has finally arrived. The calendar icon in the top right corner has been replaced by a new drop down menu that you can see in the screenshot directly to your right. The default options should please most of you, although we’d like your feedback definitely. It is still a work in progress but is well enough along that we want everyone to start using and enjoying it.
More “full months” will be available once that data has been fully summarized, which happens about every 8-10 days. May’s data actually isn’t quite finished but should be by the end of today (June 19). We also plan to add in a “More…” link right below “Two days ago” that lets you select a specific date, maybe the old calendar will popup when you click that? Not sure yet. There will also be a “Custom…” link at the bottom which will take you to a page and let you select your own date range. URL hax0rz should be able to create their own custom date ranges already, no problem, but currently data is only available back to April 25 or so.
This feature works great with the dashboard. For example, try selecting June 2007 on your dashboard, and the range of dates shown for visitors, actions etc will change to the selected range, and the “top 10” will change to the top 10 for that time period instead of just one day.
The only thing you CAN’T do (yet) is filter your visitors by referer domain or search query from more than one day, as that is not fully optimized. So if you’re viewing your dashboard for June and click “digg.com” from the incoming links list, the visitors you see as a result will only be for the “latest” date in your range, in this case that would be June 19 instead of June 1 through 19. This should be fixed in the near future, we hope.
Multi-day viewing is available to everyone right now, but in a few weeks or so it will become a premium only feature. Do enjoy, and we welcome your feedback.
Very cool, Sean. Great work. thanks
This is the most useful thing ever. Really helps in site analysis. Thanks!
This is all that I’ve been wanting to make PMetrics totally useful / usable. Many thanks!
Thanks. I’ve been wanting that feature more than anything else that’s missing.
I’ve been waiting for this feature for a while now. Glad to see it made its appearance.
