Analysis Workspace – Venn Visualization

We are on a continuous journey to enhance and enrich the capabilities of Analysis Workspace.

Visualization library of Analysis Workspace has been growing pretty fast and we are introducing a new Venn diagram visualization in Summer 2016 release.

We already have sixteen visualizations so far and with the addition of Venn, the total number of visualizations in Analysis Workspace would reach seventeen.

A Venn diagram is a diagram using shapes (usually circles) to represent sets, with the position and overlap of the circles indicating the relationships between the sets.

Using Venn visualization an Analyst using Analysis workspace can correlate and see the overlap of various segments.

Some screen captures that depict usage of Venn viz

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 :

Flash player release or debug ?

 

LiveCycle Correspondence Management Solution has a Flex based user interface which works with Flash Player version of 10.2 or above.

 

Though Flash Player is installed almost on every internet connected PC , often some Correspondence Management solution users have following questions in their minds

1) What is the version of Flash Player plug-in installed in my browserr?

2) Is the Flash Player plug-in that is installed in my browser a release version or a debug version?

When users log on to Correspondence Management Solution http://hostname:port/cm/manageassets.html , Correspondence Management Asset Manager UI is loaded only if FlashPlayer 10.2 or higher is installed if not users are prompted with a URL in their browser to get a latest version of Flash from Adobe’s website.

 

latest version of Flash Player can be downloaded from http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/

If FlashPlayer is already installed it’s easy to check which version of it is installed

1) If you are connected to internet just click here to check what version of Flash Player you currently have and what is the latest version available

2) If you are not connected to internet , Once you log on to CM solution , Right Click anywhere on Manage Assets UI , If the FlashPlayer is of debug version you would see a menu item ‘Debugger’ in context sensitive menu , If not it means the Flash Player that is installed is a release version. Version number of Flash Player is also displayed on the context sensitive menu (see the below image)
