I’ve been using Adobe Analytics for the last year and a half with clients. And though I must say there was a steep learning curve at the beginning (I came from a Google Analytics background) I like to think I’ve really gotten the hang of things inside “Workspace” — from creating and sharing custom panels, dashboards, and visualizations with my SEO data.
That is, until I just learned about Adobe Analytics hotkeys (aka shortcuts) — literally today.
Adobe Analytics hotkeys make common actions performed within Workspace much more seamless, just like keyboard shortcuts available in other programs. You don’t HAVE to use hotkeys (obviously, I didn’t know about them for over a year) but they DO make your work get done quicker and also make you look cool to all of your colleagues!
Well… at least I’ll think you’re cool.
In the coming section, I’ll give you a play-by-play of each of the shortkey functions, or you can head straight to the table! (I define each of the shortkeys for Mac, but do offer the Windows conversion in the table).
