Exclude Admins from viewing analytics

It would be very helpful to be able to exclude specified usernames from analytics. Our admins generate a lot of usage while processing videos which aren't of interest in terms of measuring 'real' views. (The workaround is to export and filter out usernames in Excel.)

  • God yes. Perhaps doing this by role would be easier/better?

    Re-upping this one. Our admins generate a lot of views. Larger events aren't that big of a deal, but for smaller events a few admin views can really skew our data.

    I agree 100% on this. Editing the CSVs to exclude viewers in order not to skew data is time consuming. I've had to do this many times.

    Perhaps an "exclusion" user group can be created for listing. This list could be edited as needed.
