Bulk-Edit eVars, props & Success Events comfortably from a Google Sheet
New Adobe Analytics “Report Suite Editor”
Need to deactivate 500 Success Events in 15 Report Suites at once? Want to finally get those names, descriptions and settings of your eVars and props streamlined across Report Suites after you identified all the “Multiples”? The Adobe Analytics Component Manager for Google Sheets can do all this for you, efficiently and comfortably from a simple Google Sheet.
While the Adobe Analytics interface does a much better job when it comes to bulk-editing custom dimensions (eVars, props) and metrics (Success Events) across multiple report suites than e.g. Google Analytics, it does get rather tedious once you need to edit a lot of them. E.g. a colleague recently had to deactivate 900 (yes!) Success Events…
Another case are the dreaded “Multiples”, which is when you have the same variable, but with different settings across Report Suites. E.g., in Report Suite A, eVar10 is “Newsletter Name”, but in Report Suite B, it is “Sausage Variant”, in Report Suite C, it is also “Sausage Variant”, but the description or the expiration settings are different. To identify “Multiples”, you can use the Component Manager’s “Compare Report Suites” feature, by the way.
