    Performance Reports- New Look
    Anyone heard about CJ's time table for implementing what appears to be their new idea of perfomance reports? I just logged in to check my daily progress and what am I greeted with but some foreign line graph and then I see it, "Access Former Performance Reports (For a limited time)" I really am comfortable with the old reporting, and now this? I see why CJ drives so many of you up the wall.

    Oh, no, CynerJyanalytics!
    Oh, no, my worst nightmare. CJ has turned into CynerJyanalytics.

    Seems this is another surprise from CJ we did not know about. Wonder if the merchants are finding surprises at their end also (like when we all learned at once about the new JS links).

    Well, thankfully, we don't see spinning arrows.

    I just hope CJ did not do as LS did and hire some outside company to do all of this and then not be able to quickly make changes down the road.

    First problem I see is the report goes off the right side of my screen and requres me to scroll over to access the Run Performance Report box.

    Second problem I see is when I look at the 12 month trend for each of my merchants (clicking on View Trend under Top 10 Advertiser for each of them), all give me a graph except for my top merchant. I just get a flat line for that one.

    There's an atrocious sideways scroll, and that graph (which I don't need) seems to be there by default, so I have to keep scrolling back and forth.

    I loathe sideways scrolling. Kind of makes me wonder what they'll do with their LMI - whether their inflicted mandatory JS creative will make OUR pages scroll sideways.

    So, so, so much better than the one at Linkshare.
    • The reports are useful
    • Getting the reports is quick and easy
    • It's not some year-long beta buried away somewhere

    Well, I do have to say, compared to LS, it is very fast and does not have all that crap that nobody wants. But my first impression was they were trying to copy LS and I see now they have not.

    Only have to scroll right to left on one of my monitors, but still, they should make that graphy a lot narrower. There is little reason it needs to be that wide.

    Yes, we have some new reporting on the merchant side too. So far I like it. It's not too much, it's quick and has some useful info. I can compare this month to last month at a glance, our top ten partners and a performance graph. It's kind of nice to go to the Performance Reports tab and see a summary of this data.

    Weird time to launch a new performance reporting.
    Not bad, but TOO LATE.
    I don't care for their new reporting. I'm too busy finding new merchants to avoid their JS links.
    Are the Messers consulting for CJ now? Who need that new CJ corporate BS?

    Looking at the new report features again, I notice the main graph has the Y axis (numbers on left) from low to high starting at the bottom, yet when you view the trends for any of your top advertisers, the range is completely opposite, with high at the bottom and lowest at the top. I find that confusing (or perhaps I need to be a statistician to understand it properly).

    I like the new reports. I don't have any problems with sidescrolling because I keep my browser window around at least 1200 pixels wide. I really like the summary directly below the graph that tells us our month to date earnings, last month's earnings and the last 30 days. It would be nice to see the amount I earned during the same number of days last month. So if the top statistic is from June 1-20 the next statistic could be May 1-20.

    I just noticed a weird thing...

    I have 3 transaction from this month that appear on June 6th in the new performance reports, however they are completely missing from my transaction reports and from the old performance reports....

    I wonder how many more transactions just get "lost" every month...

    "Tracking and reporting is fully functional".... yeah right...

    I saw that during upgrades but usually all the sales show up in the commission reports after a few days. From the 6th to today, it's not normal.

    I had a second look at the Top 10 Advertisers in their performance report.
    One of them has not paid me (and I'm sure others} during the last 90 days and they are still active. Thieves! How can I trust such a report.
    I don't need CJ to tell me who are my best advertisers. I don't need them at all.

    There's one thing that seems to be missing from the new reports. When I did a Performance report with a date range my individual site stats would show how much I earned each day of the month. This was unlike the "This Month" report which breaks everything down by merchant. Now both reports seem to break it down by merchant rather than date. How can I break it down by date?

    Aha, I found it! You can click the detail link to the far right to get the report broken down by date. What's even better is I can find out how much I earned each day from each merchant, very nice!

    I noticed the same thing. I don't think it's totally ready to go or something because everything I tried brought the same report.

    new performance reports lack de-duplication and show too high numbers!
    The new style performance reports and the old style, give different results.
    In the new style report we made about $200 more this month, then old style.
    While the old style report matches the transactions report and the balance...
    I expect its including non-removed duplicate orders. YET it's funny to see
    that also clicks and views are consistently higher in the new report! (Plus
    more then 10 duplicates on one particular day seems much!, 2 other days it was a small
    number)

    So, careful if you rely on the new report already;-)

    Plus I hope CJ keeps the old style report forever, since lynx cant fetch my reports
    in the new style, just like already for the txns, because of some....

    javascript in the forms... ;-( Or PLEASE CJ give us an API to get reports,
    or daily emails, but that I expect to fail just as often as the feeds etc, so it would
    be unreliable. But we MUST be able to automatically pick up and process our
    reports..

    I like it here too.

    the detail section in performance reports is something that has been missing for some time...it gives the date range info needed to really see performance quickly.

    I sent off a support ticket to CJ early yesterday regarding the few problems I found with the reports listed above, but have not heard back from them. A little tweaking and it will be quite usefull.
