baby steps along the way...
1st step is allowing the stacking chart to show 3 different types of dat.
right now it is showing event counts along a timeline.
Bill Henning
@BillHenning
so that is session starts right now on the timeline
Blake Niemyjski
@niemyjski
so far the work I’m doing is prototyping and it doesn’t make much sense yet. for example we wouldn’t have this drop down on a generic stack as you need to know what the value represents.. in this case time
Eric J. Smith
@ejsmith
want to also be able to show sum of value across the timeline
and then avg of value as well.
Blake Niemyjski
@niemyjski
idk, looking at it currently is confusing so we have a lot of work todo
so the timeline shows average duration in seconds
over time
so when did your longest sessions start
which appears to be 8pm at night
Bill Henning
@BillHenning
what are count and sum in terms of this graph?
i guess people like writing code at night :)
Blake Niemyjski
@niemyjski
count doesn’t make sense (because it’s number distinct durations)
average is the average session duration (seconds)
yeah
I almost think that each chart shown would be predetermined
Bill Henning
@BillHenning
honestly while this stuff is interesting, i think there's more value in other areas like knowing more about your audience location, culture, new vs. existing users, etc.
Blake Niemyjski
@niemyjski
and we wouldn’t have a selection as it doesn’t make sense and is more confusing to do this generically
Eric J. Smith
@ejsmith
I want this. For many reasons. And it's an easy win.
Blake Niemyjski
@niemyjski
what if I just wanted to show the total occurrances
it’s not the same as count
Eric J. Smith
@ejsmith
Yes it is.
Blake Niemyjski
@niemyjski
no it’s not
count is distinct:value
Eric J. Smith
@ejsmith
Yes it is. Sum is different
Count is not distinct
Blake Niemyjski
@niemyjski
total occurances is .total
how is it not?
Eric J. Smith
@ejsmith
Should not be using distinct.
Blake Niemyjski
@niemyjski
what is count then?
count falls back to just the total?
Eric J. Smith
@ejsmith
Count is a count of documents matching the filter.
Blake Niemyjski
@niemyjski
ok
Eric J. Smith
@ejsmith
It's not distinct
Blake Niemyjski
@niemyjski
ok
Bill Henning
@BillHenning
is this thing going to be something that pops up on events, etc. too?
Blake Niemyjski
@niemyjski
makes more sense but shouldn’t we change the drop down to say total occurrances then
Eric J. Smith
@ejsmith
It's a stack of events. Count makes sense to me.
We can work on wording though.
Blake Niemyjski
@niemyjski
so what would the tooltip be?
I’m still prototyping
Bill Henning
@BillHenning
question... how is knowing the sum of all session minutes at a particular time useful? and isn't the Count here the same as the Session report now?
Eric J. Smith
@ejsmith
@BillHenning you are thinking about a single usage.
Blake Niemyjski
@niemyjski
this applys to every event
Eric J. Smith
@ejsmith
I want to use this for MANY things.
Blake Niemyjski
@niemyjski
so if you submitting a feature usage or timing event type
you could see how long something took like average build time
Bill Henning
@BillHenning
just saying, that in some places it might not make sense to offer all options like Sum
