Creating Fundamental Metrics definition in Omniture Insight

- Nilotpal Paul

I have been confused for quite some time now over how the fundamental metrics in Omniture Insight /Visual Sciences (VS) are defined. Well recently I found out that the definitions are rather simple.

The keyword that I am going to focus on here is “Shift” which is used in a lot of fundamental Insight Definitions.

he syntax of using this keyword to create dimension is something like this:

Shift(Dim,Level,Group,N)  and this is how it is explained in the VS documentation :

“Defines a dimension having the same elements as the dimension Dim. The eth element of the dimension level relates to the same element of the new dimension as the element of Dim related to by the e+Nth  element  of Level provided  that the eth and e+Nth element of level relate to the same element of the dimension group.”
