Understand the differences between flow reports accessed via Workspace versus flow reports accessed via legacy reporting.

Accessing flow reports

A flow report in Workspace is accessed via the following:

  1. Create a project in workspace.
  2. Drag the 'Flow' visualization from the Visualizations tab into the workspace on the right.
  3. Drag the 'Page' dimension into one of the available spaces in the flow chart.
  4. Once data populates, click each dimension to expand or retract it. This report is interactive.

A flow report in legacy reporting is accessed via the following:

  1. In the left menu, click Navigation > Paths > Pages > Next Page Flow.
  2. Once the report runs, click each dimension to get a popup to run a separate report with details. This report is not interactive.

Understanding reporting differences

There are a couple key differences between Workspace flow and legacy flow reports:

  • The inclusion of reloads: Workspace flow reports currently include reloads and persisted values as separate steps. For example, if a visitor uses the path A > A > A > B > A > C, workspace reports all six steps separately. Legacy flow reports would display the above example as A > B > A > C.
  • The availability of dimensions and metrics. Legacy flow reports are locked to path views on traffic variables. Workspace flow reports can use any dimension or metric desired, including eVars.
