The landing page for Adobe Analytics brings together both Analysis Workspace and Reports & Analytics (end-of-lifed) in a single interface and access point under the Workspace umbrella. It features a project manager home page, an updated reports menu, modernized reports, and a learning section to help you with getting started more effectively. Here is a video overview:

Top menu structure

Top menu

  • Top Analytics menu: Most reports are now in the Reports menu in the left rail.
  • The left rail has three tabs: Projects, Reports, and Learning.

Terminology

  • Projects are customized designs that combine data components, tables, and visualizations that you built or that someone else built and shared with you. Projects also refers to blank projects and blank mobile scorecards.
  • Reports refers to anything that was pre-built by Adobe, such as templates in Workspace.
  • Templates is no longer used as a term for Adobe’s pre-built Workspace projects. They are now under Reports. The term Templates is still used for templates your company created.

Projects serves as the Workspace home page. The Projects tab displays the Company folder, any personal folders you created, your projects, and Mobile scorecards. Use this page to view, create, and modify folders, projects, and mobile scorecards. For more information, see About Folders in Analytics.

Adobe defines relevance based on how recently and frequently the suite has been used by the current user, and how frequently the suite is used within the organization.

Deprecation of the Project Manager Page

With the release of the new landing page, we deprecated Project Manager as listed under the Components manager. The new landing page handles all of the functionality of the old Project Manager page and more.

One common use case for the Project Manager page was to view all your projects.

To view all of your projects on the new landing page by using the filter rail, select OTHER FILTERS and then select Show all.

Show all projects

If you’re in the “Folders & Projects” view, a modal will pop-up asking if you want to switch to the “All projects” view which makes it easier to view all of your projects outside of any folders that they may be organized in. Select Switch to “All projects” view to better view all of the projects you have access to.

Switch to All projects

Another use case for Admins is to manage company reports in order to delete, rename, tag, or approve reports. For information about managing reports, see Managing company reports.

The Reports tab consolidates the following sets of reports:

  • The pre-built Workspace templates that were previously located under Workspace > Project > New. Adobe no longer uses the word “template” in this context.
  • Most of the pre-built reports under the previous Adobe Analytics Reports top menu. These reports are now displayed in Analysis Workspace.
NOTE

Consider the following when using reports:

  • Under Reports, a Favorites folder shows up only if you mark a new report as a favorite. No pre-existing Reports & Analytics favorites are carried forward.
  • Only the most commonly used reports that were formerly grouped in Reports & Analytics are available. A handful of rarely used or no-longer-relevant reports are no longer available. See the Landing page FAQ below for more details.

Reports tab

For more information about the Reports tab in Analysis Workspace, including viewing and saving reports, see Use pre-built reports.

For information about creating and managing custom company reports, see Create and manage company reports.

The Learning page contains hands-on video tours, tutorials, and links to documentation.

Use the Learning page in Adobe Analytics to learn beginner, intermediate, or advanced features and use-cases in Adobe Analytics.

Access the Learning page

  1. In Adobe Analytics, select Workspace > Learning.

Learning page features

  • Filter content: The Filter icon in the left rail allows you to filter learning content by experience level (Beginner, Intermediate, or Advanced) and by content type (Document, Video, or Tours & tutorials).
  • Track progress: After you select a piece of content, a Viewed tag appears. This tag helps you track your progress through the learning content. You can select the Viewed tag to remove it from a piece of content.
  • View additional content: While viewing any video, select the Learn more button to view related documentation content on Experience League. Or, from the Learning page, select either of the following options to view additional content:
    • Visit YouTube: View the full Analysis Workspace YouTube playlist.
    • Visit Experience League: View the full suite of Adobe Analytics documentation on Experience League.
  • Fundamentals for new users: The Workspace Fundamentals tour is recommended for new users. This tour takes you directly to Workspace and walks you through the most common actions. This tour can also be relaunched any time in Workspace via the tooltip pop-over from the panel header.
