Selecting Metrics 2 Ways…
1. Via drop-down menu
In the graphic below, you can see that we’re viewing two metrics for Amazon.com, visits and average stay. The blue “1″ icon at the top shows where to click to select your first metric. The blue “2″ icon denotes the available metrics in the drop-down menu. Since Visits has already been selected in the first drop-down it appears gray in the list of possible options.
2. Via hover menu
In the image above, two metrics are selected (denoted with green icons) underneath the graph. The green “1″ icon, shows that the Visits metric is selected as the primary metric. The green “2″ icon represents the second metric, Average Stay. Since Average Stay was selected second it has a blue x in the top right of the box. Clicking the blue x will deselect this metric and allow you to select any other metric that you hover over.
Keep in mind while exporting
Whenever you select more than one metric it will download the corresponding selections when you export the information to CSV format, save the graph image, or permalink to this information. Since you can select more than one metric at a time, the graph will often update with an additional y-axis on the right, to accommodate the scale for the alternate metric.
