Enhance Visitor log to be a central tool,
to bundle and standardise actions
a) doing on tracked data and
b) learning from tracked data,
where you can do several things already described within several issues:
1) delete Visit
2) delete the visitor belonging to this visit (and all of his visits)
3) delete all visits and visitors of one IP
4) this is a bot (bot list learning)
5) mark/flag Visit
6) mark/flag the visitor belonging to this visit
This general approach will help greatly to keep look and feel and also all technical processes in background clean and straight forward.
for 1) delete e.g. because you noticed it was you/ your colleague, it was a developer test etc...
for 2) delete e.g. because you noticed it was you/ your colleague, it was a developer test etc...
for 3) delete e.g. because you noticed it was you/ your colleague, it was a developer test etc...
from comments in #3385
for 5) give an extra "name" which could be used in segmentation afterwards or input "additional information" e.g. if there was something wrong and another developer should look on this
for 6) give an extra "name" which could be used in segmentation afterwards or input "additional information" e.g. if there was something wrong and another developer should look on this
How could this be done?
4 Elements are needed
One idea is to put these elements in a popup which can be brought up with a small button
on each visit in visitor log
A 5th element "an undo-Button" on top of visitorlog would complete it (idea from #9181)
an other idea for extension, similar to "bot list learning" (nr 4 on list above)
7) easy way for "device learning": could be done of course in own Piwiks on sites,in a developement site or on a central site of Piwik team.
The steps are the following:
in best way this updated device list is synced back to Piwik...
with this one could detail the technics behind the scene:
there should be a standard scheme for developers for how to define new actions
(which are shown in popup for selection by the user),
consisting at least of
when syncing the by the users enhanced bot-list and device-list back to piwik,
one could make the power of the crowd (all these non-developer users out there) accessible to make piwik better and better (=> of course this is an topic for an extra ticket, edit: #9183)
:+1: like that :)
other action for this tool:
8) receive optimized/best detailed geoip data on click for a visit
using advanced, non free databases as webservices (payed per use)
for further enhancement:
making "mass actions" possible:
Applying the same action on several, selectable visits with minimum effort
this issue could be a collection of ideas what could be done with this vistor log tool (at this time 8 different types of action) and how it could be done in general.
Since this is a standardized approach, the different types of action could be implemented step by step.
For each step a own issue could be opened to document and discuss the details.
Doing this one could simply copy already available details from this ticket to the new one.
A good start could be the implementation of the delete feature (idea 1 and idea 2) which is already
discussed to be highly needed in #3385
Here you find this 1. step: general setup + actions of type delete #9204
