@niemyjski
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
Blake Niemyjski
@niemyjski
and plot it on a custom dashboard
Eric J. Smith
@ejsmith
yes there are stacks of events that it will make zero sense on.
Bill Henning
@BillHenning
but yeah for event hits, it would be nice
Blake Niemyjski
@niemyjski
yeah
so step one is building this out to see how it works
Eric J. Smith
@ejsmith
would be nice if we could detect that values are not even populated on events in the stack.
Blake Niemyjski
@niemyjski
as we just totally built a complete stats backend that’s all generic
Eric J. Smith
@ejsmith
and not even show those options.
Blake Niemyjski
@niemyjski
you can pass it
Eric J. Smith
@ejsmith
I think when we go into Sum or Average mode, it should probably still show the Counts
Bill Henning
@BillHenning
@ejsmith right, so if everything is always 1, maybe don't show Sum
Blake Niemyjski
@niemyjski
‘distinct:user.raw,avg:value` to get a timeline that shows both distinct user counts and average duration
Eric J. Smith
@ejsmith
well, some events don’t have anything on value
Bill Henning
@BillHenning
although you might not know if a higher value is out of the timeframe
ahh
