Adobe Analytics – Updated Menu items in Analysis Workspace

An increasing number of features are getting added to Adobe Analytics Analysis workspace at a rapid pace. It was appropriate for us to update the current Analysis workspace user interactions metaphor of using actions toolbar on the top of Analysis Workspace to a smart pull-down navigation menu metaphor which is a representative of most of the popular applications that computer users interact with.

In Summer 2016 release , there are three noticeable UI changes in Analysis Workspace :

  1. Action buttons on top area of Analysis workspace are now made available as smart pull down menu items
  2. Components panel and Visualizations panel on the top are now available on left-hand rail
  3. A new panels panel has been introduced. An analysis workspace user can drag and drop one of the panels (blank , freeform & Segment Comparison) on to a new project or existing project.

For Analysis workspace power users who spend most of their time in the workspace and are more comfortable using short cuts, we have ensured that there is no change in the functionality of shortcut keys and all the shortcuts before Summer 2016 release would continue to work with same behavior after Summer 2016 release.

Full list of shortcuts before summer release and after summer release are listed in the screenshot below :
