Labs User Guide

Labs allows for faster prototyping of early-stage ideas. It is a combination of tools and processes that accelerates development transparently, with a customer focus. It allows users to engage with emerging technologies, to discover valuable insights, and to influence future feature development and priorities. You can use Labs to get early access to Adobe Analytics innovations and to evaluate upcoming features within the context of your own business use cases and data.


Labs is automatically enabled for all admins. Other team members should contact their product administrators and request access.

If you have not already done so, read and sign the applicable Non-Disclosure Agreement and Terms & Conditions forms.

  3. Work with the prototype. When working in the prototype environment:

  • Projects created within the prototype environment cannot be saved or shared.

  • In a prototype, you can evaluate the data with any dimensions, metrics, segments and visualizations that you otherwise have access to within Workspace.

  • Any changes you make within a prototype will not affect data collection or processing.

  • Changes made through creation or modification of segments, calculated metrics, and alerts persist outside of the prototype environment.

Leave feedback

  1. Click Give Feedback to provide feedback in the message box at any point when working with the prototype.


  2. Click Submit to send your feedback.

  3. To try a different prototype, or to exit the prototype environment, click Leave Prototype in the upper right of the screen and complete the short survey for the prototype. Any changes made to a prototype project are lost upon exiting the prototype environment.
