Create a project and add components (dimensions, metrics, segments, date ranges) to the freeform panel.
This article familiarizes you with the Analysis Workspace interface elements and shows how to create a project. For specific use cases, see Analysis Workspace Use Cases.
To create an Analysis Workspace project
Before creating or curating an Analysis Workspace project, administrators must add you to a group with the Create / Curate Projects in Analysis Workspace permission enabled, or to the All Report Access user group. (Admin > User Management > Groups).
Alternatively, enter a forward slash (/) to open the report search bar, then type workspace.
A blank project displays, showing a freeform panel and a data table visualization.
The Component toolbar displays searchable dimensions, metrics, segments, and date ranges that you use most frequently.
Apply at the project level
Prop#, eVar#, and event# are appended to the dimension names, and you can search on those numbers. Example: "Internal Campaign" shows up in the left rail as "Internal Campaign (evar2)".
Note that the prop, eVar, and event numbers do not show in the table (to keep the titles short).
There is a default sort order for some out-of-the-box dimensions, when they are dragged into a freeform table or when they are viewed in the left rail. For example, when "Hour of Day" is dropped into a table or viewed in the left rail, it will be sorted from 12AM-11PM. You still have the option to sort by any metric column.
Apply at the project level.
Occurrences is the default metric for the data table.
Draggable only at the panel level, but you can create inline segments in the data table.
See Analysis Workspace Use Cases for more information.
|Date ranges and granularities (purple)||
Draggable only at the panel level. You can create a project from the Calendar, when configuring a date range.
The Visualizations panel provides standard Analytics graphs, charts, donuts, data tables, cohort tables, Venn diagrams, and so on. You can drag-and-drop multiple visualizations into your project.
The right-click menu lets you perform the following actions, depending on which cell in a table you right-click.
