Analysis Workspace is one of the best additions released in Adobe Analytics in the last few years. Sooner or later, it will probably become the default way of accessing reports and analysing data in Adobe Analytics. 

Flexibility with data

Analysis Workspace offers more flexibility with every piece of data, be it dimensions, metrics, segments, or even the time period of reporting.

With dimensions, you can:

  • Choose to display only selected rows
  • Trend more than five dimension values
  • Use dimension values to segment metrics without creating segments
  • Break down different line items using different dimensions or selective dimension values

With metrics, you can:

  • Add conditional formatting to see colour-coded cells using predefined or custom threshold values
  • Trend more than five metrics to generate a key metrics report

Analysis Workspace also allows you to use segments as dimensions, create custom time labels to add to your presets, and apply multiple visualisations to the same data with options like locking specific items or positions.


In the traditional reports analytics interface, you have to refresh the report with every incremental change you make: change the date, add metrics, change the graph, etc. Analysis Workspace saves you time by implementing all these changes without refreshing the page.

Analysis Workspace also allows you to undo actions. Using “Undo”, you can easily return to the previous version if you make a mistake. Keyboard shortcuts will save you time if you use Analysis Workspace as a desktop app. Tags will help you quickly find the right component. The right-click contextual menu will duplicate visualisations, apply breakdowns, trend selections, and much more. 

Ease of use 

Analysis Workspace has a very intuitive user experience:

  • Drag and drop any piece of data: dimensions, metrics, segments, time, and look for insights
  • Find everything with one search box: favourite, approved, tagged, etc.
  • Rearrange panels, tables, visualisations according to your preferences
  • Rename tables and graphs to what your business and team relate to
  • Curate & share projects to help team members focus on what is important
