We use the event tracking a lot.
We have

  • Category
  • Actions
  • Names

In Piwik we can't display all 3 of them, only 2 are shown.
For example:
if you look at the categories you see all actions of this category -> missing name
if you look at the names you see all actions of this name -> missing category
if you look at the actions, you see all names of this action -> missing category

What we need is to group the results by this third layer.

The only way to get around this, is with segment filters by, for example a specific category, then i get all names and actions for this category. the problem is, there is an infinite number of categories in many different sites.

Is there a way to get this grouping in to the backend? (it would be enough to have this in the API)

To illustrate our use case see the following images:

piwik_events_names
piwik_events_actions
piwik_event_categories

TIA

Hi @rufinus thank you for the suggestion. I agree that it would be really great to be able to see the 3 levels of Event data at once. Maybe we will do this later with a new Custom Reports feature: #4776

This is rather important to me @mattab ;)

@mgonera do you have some more info/ context?

@mgonera commented on November 25th 2015

@mattab Basically demand is to be able to review all of Events data levels in one view. Furthermore, user would like to have data about Events enhanced with data about Goals triggered within visit containing such an event and so on.

Maybe we could create a new report, that aggregates all 3 dimensions, into one table:

  • the table row labels would be something like EventCategory - EventAction - EventName
  • there would be no sub-table.

What do you think @mgonera @rufinus

@mgonera commented on November 25th 2015

@mattab in my opinion such approach doesn't fulfill the need behind the issue. Hierarchy is key feature of this report. User's desire is to have 3 level structure.

ideally for this we need Custom Reports feature: #4776
