We’ll be keeping this group around for a bit for you to peruse, but as of November 15, we will no longer be allowing new posts or comments. Be sure to join our new group at to keep the conversation going.

We can’t wait to see you there!

Working with Lifetime Metrics & aggregating them


  • Dato_marioDato_mario SYS_ADMIN IMG42

    Hello Oscar,

    I normally solve this by sending a report with the dimensions I need into a new data stream and doing the daily delta (day minus the previous day) in that new data stream's mapping.

    This allows me to store the added value onto a data model field and make its aggregation type to "SUM" which will work nicely with the non-Lifetime social metrics.

    I prefer this approach over calculated measurements because it gives me more control over date ranges and formula options since I am essentially creating the table that I want via the report and operating on that versus a calculated measurement that will change and respond to a variety of factors such as the page/widget date range and filters.

    Just make sure that the report covers the entire date range of data.

    • If you make the date range to be On-going with the first data date
    • Schedule the report to run after the original data stream
    • And select the New data stream to delete all data before reprocessing

    The solution should be robust and automatic.
    One thing that can break the solution is if the Report gets too big to be retrieved by email (more than 7 MB).
