    Also would it be possible to combine all of the "prompts" in running the reports on to a single page. The "prompts" method of navigation is silly and time consuming.

    Thanks for your reply.

    Stats Addict,
    Clever communication. There is an Individual Item Report in SynergyAnalytics under the Network Transaction Analysis Tab, select Traditional Reports, Individual Item Report, and select your prompts.

    The Individual Item report gives you the date of the transaction, not the time.

    What he's saying is that the Individual Item report in the traditional reports DOES give the full timestamp. Synergy Analytics just gives the date.

    I know I find the timestamp useful. When you have merchants where you're generating 100 or more transactions a day, looking for gaps can help identify some types of tracking/reporting problems.

    Michael Is Exactly Right
    I will assume the answer to my question is that the full timestamp info is not available in synergy analytics.

    I am not sure who comprises the Linkshare affiliate group who tests the changes to affiliate reports, but they miss alot. For instance even if SA hypothetically adds some functionality, it is certainly at the cost of losing other functionality, like the timestamp. Likewise when Sub_id was dropped, "signature" reporting was promoted as being a redundant system. Without getting into a long tome, it is certainly not redundant. Much functionality was lost.

    These changes never seem to be in response to affiliate requests. I just think that Linkshare should work on fixing whats broke. And stop "fixing" whats not broke.

    In the meanwhile

    Any Linkshare stats pro ever figure out where the GoldenCan click stats show up for Sierra Trading Post, Easy Click travel and Overstock? 45,000 GoldenCan page views from my site's pages and I'm lost as finding any clicks or sales attributed to that traffic.

    I'm not sure either, but I'm not going to blame them. LinkShare is known for asking other people opinion but doing only what they want. It's time for them to recognize it's doesn't work, and to bring back the old functionalities.

    I think the field is actually still there, but just not being displayed in its entirety.
