What is Analysis Workspace?
Analysis Workspace is a flexible browser tool that allows you to quickly build analyses and share insights. If you only have 2 minutes, watch this quick overview to see what is possible.
Analysis Workspace looks awesome. Where do I start?
Log into Adobe Analytics, then click the Workspace tab. Choose from a list of projects your colleagues have shared with you, or create your own. Our project launch modal will provide you with different options for starting your analysis.
What are templates you ask? Templates are a great way to start analyzing data without having to build any tables or visualizations. ‘Standard’ templates were built by Adobe and cover some common use cases. ‘Custom’ templates were built by your organization to showcase the KPIs and business questions that matter to your business.
If you choose to start your analysis from a new blank project rather than a template, the project will open with a freeform table added automatically. A freeform table is a blank canvas where you can begin dragging & dropping components in from the left rail. Components are dimensions, metrics, segments, or date ranges, all of which can be combined in a table to start answering your business question.
Drop-zone guides will help you understand what each drag & drop action will do, before you let go. Blue guides indicate you are about to take a valid action that will result in data, while yellow/orange guides indicate when invalid data will result.
There are also many other analysis visualizations available in Workspace. On the far left rail, select the middle icon (Visualizations) to see a full list of available vizs. Learn more
If you would like to start your project from some of these other visualizations, rather than a freeform table, here is a quick tip. Select the top icon (Panels) and then drag & drop a blank panel into the project. This blank panel highlights the different types of analyses you can build from in Workspace. Check the ‘default’ box on this panel if you always want to start your project this way!
Another great way to build projects quickly is to copy tables & visualizations from existing templates or shared projects. Think of these like building blocks where you can pick and choose what to include in your project. Copy from one project and insert into another to quickly stand up a new analysis or shared dashboard.
