New Report Suite

You can create a new report suite by selecting a pre-defined template, or by using one of your existing report suites to serve as a model.

Descriptions of the elements used when creating a report suite.

Note: The Virtual Report Suite documentation shows you how to create virtual report suites.
Element Description
Report Suite ID

Specifies a unique ID that can contain only alphanumeric characters. This ID cannot be changed after it is created. Adobe sets the required ID prefix and it cannot be changed, either.

When creating multiple report suites, ensure that the naming convention you use guarantees unique report suite IDs.

Site Title Identifies the report suite in Admin Tools. This title is also used in the Report Suite drop-down list in the suite header.
Time Zone Schedules events and time stamp data.
Base URL (Optional) Defines the base domain for the report suite. This URL functions as an internal URL filter if you do not explicitly define internal URL filters for the report suite.
Default Page

(Optional) Strips occurrences of the Default Page value from URLs it encounters. If your Most Popular Pages report contains URLs rather than page names, this setting prevents multiple URLs for the same web page.

For example, the URLs and are typically the same page. You can remove extraneous filenames so that both these URLs show up as in your reports.

If you do not set this value, Analytics automatically removes the following filenames from URLs: index.htm, index.html, index.cgi, index.asp, default.htm, default.html, default.cgi, default.asp, home.htm, home.html, home.cgi, and home.asp.

To disable filename stripping, specify a Default Page value that never occurs in your URLs.

Go Live Date

Informs Adobe of the date that you expect this report suite to become active. If your deployment schedule changes, provide an updated traffic estimate using the Permanent Expected Traffic tool in Traffic Management.
Estimated Page Views Per Day Identifies the estimated number of page views you expect this report suite to support in a day. Large traffic volumes require a longer approval process. To avoid processing delays, be as accurate as possible with this estimate.
Base Currency

Specifies the default currency used to store all monetary data. Analytics reporting converts transactions in other currencies to the base currency, using the current conversion rate at the time it receives the data.

Analytics reporting uses the currencyCode JavaScript variable to identify the currency of a given transaction.

Disable Multi-byte Character Support

Disables multibyte character support for the report suite. If you disable multibyte character support, the system assumes that data is in ISO-8859-1 format. Web pages must specify their character set in the charSet JavaScript variable.

Multibyte character support stores characters in the report suite using UTF-8. Upon receipt, the system converts data from your web page's character set to the UTF-8 character set, so you can use any language in your marketing reports.

Contact your Account Manager or Customer Care to change the multibyte character support for an existing report suite.
