show instant feedback on period & segment selector usage:
the idea is to make it work like google do when showing the results:
"There are about 15.800.000 results"
The motivation for this is giving the user more information and some kind of confirmation that he was doing right with the selected period and segment
(and do not look at / compare apples and oranges)
please see attachments
what to shown there could be taken from menu /headline
please see further attachments
That would be quite useful ! Warm +1
To enhance this even futher with a tiny but usefull piece of information,
on could show
"7305 different visits counted within selected period and segment"
"7305 different visits counted within selected period and segment.
These are 46% of all visits on entire website within this period"
(maybe only if there is a segment used which is not "all visits")
=> with this, one got a really "gut feeling" regarding "what one is doing here with the filters."
and how one should interpreted the shown results from statistical point of view.
(e.g. when using a segment of only 0,5% of all visitors the results may in lot's of cases not be weight to high)
regarding performance, there is a general write up in #9110 which is using the same data (only divided by number of results per page)
with this the proposed new label for issues "performance demanding" should be applied to this one too
