at this time you get the information that a visit has a total duration of x and contains y actions
e.g 42 "Actions - 16 min 2s"
-> that's good.
=> But what is also very interesting looking at the visitor log, is to see
the portion/share of visit-time + nr of actions for each site visited within one visit.
-> Maybe a good place to show this is directly in front of the url
to save some space if needed, one could also think of shortening the word "Action" to "A"
Please have a look at the attachment
Hi @hpvd - i'm not sure I understand your suggestion. Maybe you could show on a screenshot an example of what you mean?
the idea is already in the attached screen-shot above:-)
=> the information with red font is new and one could show it e.g. in front of each url:
simply do not only show on first look (without having to click anything)
global information for a visit (e.g. 42 Action - 16 min 2 s)
but also information for each single site (e.g. 4 Actions - 37s)
with this you can see with one look, which was the most interesting part of your website for this visitor: the place where he/she stays the longest time and made the most actions
of course in the far future one could also think of enhancing this by working with a advanced background colour scheme: the more interesting a site/part the darker the background...
@hpvd the "Time on page" is already in the tooltip - so we could maybe just add "N Actions" in the tooltip?
@mattlab adding "N Actions" in the tooltip this would be a good first step!
Showing time and nr of action for each site directly without a click, would greatly improve possibilities to get a real quick look inside of what a visitor is interested in.
Of course I can understand if you would like to keep it clean and do not want to many numbers.
For this there are two (general purpose) ideas:
1) working with an advanced background colour scheme: the more interesting a site/part the darker the background
2) adding some kind of "inline bars" (icons) to each site/url, one whose length indicates the visit time and one whose length indicate the number of events (same principle excel spark lines use, please see attachment
the more even concrete version (better title, expample and solution suggestion) of this is https://github.com/piwik/piwik/issues/9754
