About Analyst

About Analyst

Analyst collects information about the virtual economy and presents that information to the player. In its Economy panel, Analyst answers questions such as the following:

  • How much gold did I earn and how?
  • How much gold did I spend and on what?
  • How am I doing in the auction house?
  • What have I looted from mobs?
  • What items did I consume?
  • What items did I produce?
  • How many currencies (marks, badges, emblems) have I collected?
  • What have I deposited or withdrawn from the guild bank?
  • What is my gathering and crafting activity?
  • ... and much more

All reports can be shown over a configurable period (days, weeks, month).

Screenshots

The Economy panel lets you choose between the various reports offered by Analyst. Also, the reporting period of time can be chosen. Central information is displayed in the top frame. Data from two selected reports in shown in the bottom frames.

Economy Panel

For the This Week report, the start day of week can be configured in the options. For example, a raid player may want to set the start day of week to the beginning of the raid ID period.

If you mouseover a statistic item, a tooltip provides detailed drill-down information on that statistic:

Detail Information

Usage

If you have a Lightweight Data Broker (LDB) container add-on such as Titan Panel, Analyst shows in that container. Left-clicking the Analyst icon toggles the Economy panel; right-clicking the icon shows the options.

If you do not have an LDB container, type /analyst economy to toggle the Economy panel and /analyst options to show the options.

Analyst provides a key binding to toggle the Economy panel. You may want to assign a key to that binding to gain quick access to Analyst.

    Well first off this is a great addon, I absolutely love it!

    I have one request / Idea to make it even more awesome & helpful..
    There's a addon called "MoneyWiz that shows a real time frame of how much gold you are collecting over time, and when u hover over it it shows various stats like your addon. But it includes how much gold you have on all your toons that are on the same server & you can reset the Gold gained so you can keep track of how much gold you get out of a certain instance.
    It would be great to have one that can't reset & one that can so u can keep track of it every copper.

    Is there anyway you would consider integrating something like this into your addon?
  • #53
    Thanks for the suggestion. Could you please create a ticket for this here:
    http://www.wowace.com/projects/analyst/tickets/
  • #45
    Bethink not sure if you read this comments section on a regular basis, but I just found out that running Analyst and Quest Helper at the same time causes QH to generate double entries in the tooltip which tracks quests:

    http://img50.imageshack.us/img50/2006/qherror.jpg

    Disabling Analyst solves this problem.

    Fixed in 1.0.8

    I do track the comments section from time to time. Unfortuantely, there is no way to receive notifications when new comments are posted. Therefore, I recommend creating a ticket on WowAce when reporting bugs or requesting features: http://www.wowace.com/projects/analyst/tickets/

    Creating a ticket for this problem.

    This is the only add on that actually tracks spending etc just like I wanted. I only have one issue. The discard of data over 30 days. Can we have an option to have total over lifetime? If there is concern about data size, perhaps an option to delete data in lifetime beyond the 30 days for people who enable the feature? I only ask because the only other addon that does what yours does, does not work right at all. Yours is simple.
    All I need is that lifetime tab. Any way that can happen? Thank you for your hard work!!
  • #47
    Creating a ticket for this request. It might be possible to maintain stats on an unlimited basis when the detail rill-downs are omitted. I will have to analyze this further.
  • #41
    How does one configure this? Clicking the options button does nothing, and '/analyst options' pops up the interface addons dialog (where the 'options' button under analyst continues to do nothing).

    I'm asking particularly about "All reports can be shown over a configurable period (days, weeks, month). "
  • #42
    I would suggest that you create a key binding for the Toggle Economy Panel option. This allows you to bring up the Economy panel quickly. This has the same effect as the /analsts economy command mentioned by phosdex.

    Beside that, UI integration is done via Lightweight Data Broker (LDB). If you have an LDP container add-on such as ButtonBin, you will get an icon for Analyst that brings up the Economy panel when clicked.
  • #43
    I will remove the options button from the options panel. It is (obviously) redundant if you already are in that panel.

    And yes, data is discarded after 30 days. Keeping all the detail information maintained by Analyst would generate more data than I am feeling comfortable with. The problem is not with the cummulative statistics, but the individual data shown in the tooltips that track (for example) each and every crafting activity.
  • #40
    Very nice addon, thank you.
  • #38
    Any plans for other currency tracking? Emblems, cooking awards ect.
  • #39
    These are already being tracked. In order to access this data, just switch the display to the Currencies report and view the tooltips. If you find anything missing, please let me now :)
