did hourly conversion data info in reports go away or did we never have it (i'm getting old!)?
doing exactly as you say regaridng choice of report type, but as soon as I select "2. Settings"; "View (Unit of Time)" as either "Hourly (by date)" or "Hourly (regardless of date)", the conversion tracking (not analytics) data choices below, under "3. Advanced Settings (Optional)"; "Add or Remove Columns" are removed.
The green choice box area, where you add or remove columns, has a section called "Conversion Columns : These columns provide statistics on ad conversions and conversion rates". Choosing either hourly unit of time makes those choices disappear completely.
If I ignore that I can't choose the desired columns and run the report anyhow, the conversion data (naturally) doesn't include those columns that I was unable to choose.
Can you try picking either hourly unit of time and tell me what happens for you?
explained that as both a ppc consultant and an affiliate, i don't always have access to the cart's back-end conversion data - so seems adwords reports (since i'm trying to optimize my AdWords dayparting settings) are the ideal place for me to see this data - and G should have it stored, so please make it available.
rep explained that certain combinations aren't possible, and was certainly courteous and friendly, but i got the feeling that the significance and meaning of my request wasn't received well and am left with that "that's the way it is" feeling.
i should have asked for a ticket number or something. i think if one was offered, without my asking, i'd have that feeling that it's now an open issue there - instead of feeling like the end of my call was also the end of this request.
i didn't handle it properly i think - not a people person today.
oh well. :-)
Hope they fix this one soon.
