    Hi all, is there a way to see the number of articles that were both created and published? I'd like to get the number of articles created and published within a certain time period, and there doesn't appear to be a way to do this with the built-in variables listed above.

    Hey Lauren,
    Thanks for reaching out, I hope you are doing well! When it comes to tracking both "articles created" and "articles published" within a certain period of time, you should be able to add them together by using a Result Metric Calculation. Alternatively you can create a calculated metric that uses both but you'll need to use an OR condition as these two metrics are actually looking at the same event attribute with different values, therefore the same attribute can't have both values at the same time. I hope this helps, let us know if you need anything else, take care!

    Thanks for your response @.... That's not quite what I meant, though; I should've been clearer. I'd like to know the explicit count of articles that were created & then published within the same time period. My goal is to get a total count of articles published during a time period and be able to splice that into "new" and "updated" buckets. I.e., new articles published + updated articles published = ALL published articles. There doesn't appear to be a way to find this in the native metrics or by using a calculated attribute or metric, due to the way these events are tracked. Perhaps I'm missing something though? Please advise, thanks so much!

    Hey Lauren,

    Thanks so much for reaching back and clarifying a little bit more about what you are looking for. In your particular case, I have consulted our Explore team about this and they have mentioned that there may be a way to build this but it would involve using customised metrics. To set expectations, because this is a custom metric any troubleshooting around it is outside the scope of support that our Zendesk Advocates can provide.

    Having said that, to do something like you have mentioned, you would copy the metrics for created and published articles, then create them as attributes whilst using the IF THEN ELSE function where you would replace [Event ID] with [Event - Timestamp]. From there, you would do a date_diff of the two attributes with your preferred time value.

    Hopefully this gets you pointed in the right direction and all the best with building this!
