The business has asked the Sitecore team to provide additional reporting views on already being collected by Experience Analytics.
This post covers the final steps to using custom views on our data
Segments are used by Sitecore to show the summarization of a value (dimension) in context to a specific business question.
Once a new segment is created, it will take up to 30 minutes before any actions on the website are aggregated into this segment for reporting.
To allow historical data to aggregate into a recently created segment, you will need to rebuild the reporting database via https://your set/sitecore/admin/rebuildreportingdb.aspx. Before running the rebuild you will want to update the Deploy Date column of the Segments table in your MS SQL reporting database. This will allow all data to be aggregated into the segment.
Creating the segment to slice data can be done by most advance content editors with access to the Marketing Control Panel section of the content tree. Sadly, by default, just because a segment is created, doesn’t make it readily available on any existing tables or charts in xAnalytics.
As always if you want to continue the conversation or have some questions reach out to me on Twitter @thecodeattic or on Sitecore Slack Community as @gillissm.
Thanks for this important post. I'm trying to build a report to show all pages that triggered a goal or "Pages per Goal". However, when adding the filter I couldn't find a rule to fit that need. I checked all standard Sitecore dimensions/segments and none of them have filter on them. Am I missing something? Regards,
