Customer Journey Analytics documentation
November 11, 2020
Customer Journey Analytics documentation has moved to Experience League. During November, all articles, videos, release notes, and tutorials moved from their current location at experienceleague.adobe.com to experienceleague.adobe.com. This move ensures that all learning, self-help, enablement, and community content is served from a single location. All links were redirected to Experience League.
Line visualization: Moving average trendline option
October 8, 2020
Moving average has been added to Line visualization trendline settings. A moving average calculates the mean for a specified prior period and uses that as the trendline data point, then moves to the next period. Learn more
Removing backfill limitation
October 19, 2020
In order to provide an improved Customer Journey Analytics experience, we have removed the backfill (historical data import) limitation. Previously, you could backfill a maximum of 2.5 billion rows on your own and otherwise required engineering involvement. Now, you can backfill data on your own, without any limitation. Learn more
Analysis Workspace Performance Help page

Time Spent metrics and dimensions

Device and Geography dimensions
October 30, 2020
Device and Geography dimensions are now available by default as part of the “Global Lookup support” project in the Adobe Analytics Source connector. This much-requested addition increases parity between Adobe Analytics and Customer Journey Analytics.
Journey IQ: Cross-channel Analytics
January 11, 2021
Journey IQ: Cross-channel Analytics enables customers to re-key an Adobe Analytics (or other) event dataset in Adobe Experience Platform data lake from one ID namespace to another. Typically, this means re-keying the event dataset from a cookie-based ID to a person-based ID. This way, the re-keyed dataset may be combined with other person-based data in a Customer Journey Analytics connection, thus enabling cross-device/cross-channel analysis in Analysis Workspace.

Analysis Workspace – Freeform Table Builder

With Table Builder enabled, you can drag and drop in many dimensions, breakdowns, metrics and segments to build tables that answer more complex business questions. Data will not update immediately. Instead, updates occur after you select Build, saving you time once you know what table you want to construct. Additionally, this feature offers:

  • Preview: You can preview the format of a table before spending time to render real data.
  • Flexible Row and breakdown settings: You can set your row and breakdown levels for every dimension row. Previously, Workspace imposed defaults that could not be changed until after the data was returned.
  • Breakdown by position: You can set dimension rows to always breakdown by position instead of by specific item (the default).
  • Manual static row ordering: You can manually order static rows so that the table rows are displayed exactly as you need them. Previously, static rows could be sorted only by a metric column or alphabetically.

Associated documentation will be published when this feature releases later in January.
