Commute Analyzer should include combined trips

The existing implementation of the Commute Analyzer is pretty neat, but it doesn't include combined trips with short stops only non-stop trips. In my data set, just as an example, I stop to pick up breakfast at a particular spot about half the time on my commute and so those don't show up in my analysis. I would have to analyze that data set separately even though they always end up going to the same end point as the trips it already found.

Thanks for adding the tool though! It's a great first start.

Hey Nathan,

Thanks for reaching out and for your feedback!

I have passed this along to our team behind Dashboard Labs. It is worth noting that at this time, Dashboard Labs is still in beta so we are continuing to develop it. With that said, feedback like your's helps us continue to build the product and add new features given the unique use cases our users have.

Thanks again, Nathan. Glad you are enjoying the tool, and hopefully you will be just as excited with any future additions we make :)

The analyzer noted that I have different routes to take to and from work.  In future versions it would be helpful to see a comparison between those routes. Also a year is a long time for a data base I would rather have the option for 3 months at a time.  The weather, schools in or out of session etc, will have an impact.

Hi Cathi,

Thanks for your feedback!

At this point in time, the commute analyzer is designed to compare trips that start and end in the same location. It isn't possible to compare the exact same routes, but this is something we can look into considering in future iterations of Dashboard Labs.

With regards to the timeframe, you can control this by selecting the date's you'd like to filter the trips from:

I hope this helps, Cathi!
