I’d love to have greater flexibility with date comparisons by selecting the “Custom” option.  Two different situations come to mind that I can’t do today in Heap UI (or at least can’t figure out how to do):

  • Compare the entire month of July to June.  I can select July, but it forces me to choose a comparison time period that’s also 31 days.  We see a lot of activity on our sites the last day of the month, so if I’m including May 31st in with June (to make it 31 days), it’ll skew the results.
  • Compare one promotion to another.  Let’s say one promotion ran for 5 days and another ran for 3 days.  Since they’re for varying lengths of time, it won’t allow me to select those time periods to compare.

Hi!

Thanks so much for your detailed feature request. More options or otherwise customizable period-over-period comparisons are a great idea and we can see how this would be helpful. I’ve already upvoted the existing feature request with our Product team on your behalf.
