Create statistics dashboard for Affiliates admin panel
To make gathering weekly stats, it would be nice to have a statistics dashboard for the Affiliates admin panel. Stats to see reflected (wish list, of course): Clicks - Total, Year, Month, Week, Day Buttons saved - Total, Year, Month, Week, Day Affiliates - Total, locale used, geographic location (if possible) Any other helpful things you can think of to add?
I've talked to Daniel on the metrics team and he said they do not have the bandwidth right now to create a dashboard for Affiliates. He recommended that we fire off requests to webtrends and use their aggregation and graphing abilities. I talked to Mkelly and he said that he could accomplish similar graphs and charts directly within the Django admin and use nightly cron jobs to process the raw data. While this will require more up-front work on webdev's part, we can be sure that the dashboard is capturing exactly what we want and will be able to expand upon it in the future. Daniel said that if all of that still doesn't satisfy our needs to put in a request early enough with them and they can help create a custom dashboard.
That would work fine for me. I just need a way to get to this data so that we can forecast. What would be the ETA on this? Also, it would be really helpful to be able to track all the way to installs. Can webtrends do this for us?
James: Do you know how tracking of the Firefox Download button works? Can it track the referrer to the download page (to connect them to an actual download)?
mkelly: Did you have a specific idea in mind for the tools to graph this?
No specific idea, although it'd probably be best to use a JS graphing library to get the job done. I did some searching and, though not the prettiest, I do like how ico (seemingly) automatically handles showing the actual value of a data point on a line graph. As far as I know that's not a requirement though.  https://github.com/uiteoi/ico
