This one seems minor, but hopefully you can review it when you next revisit the UX.
We made a change today that sped up page delivery by between x3 and x6, Big change right? I added a custom event for the deployment and went to look at the graphs so I have something nice to share with stakeholders to visualise this improvement, and do that using the WPM tool!
Anyway the graphs look pretty horrible. If you mail me I can show you, but they really do not convey the improvement.at all.
The main issue that I can see is that CUSTOM EVENTS create a separate chart below the existing one. This makes the Y axis of both charts really tiny (it halves the size of it) which makes any fluctuations on that axis much harder to spot.
My idea would simply to be that Custom Events could be shown with a vertical line. Put that line in a transparent colour so you can see the speed metrics through it, and this would look quite cool and allow the Y axis to be preserved.
Here is a nice Etsy post of their internal systems where the deploys are shown in this way - https://codeascraft.com/2010/12/08/track-every-release/
Of course I can get a nice tall Y axis using Analyse Metrics/Trends - but I cannot use the Custom Events in this view! (WPMWEB-I-242)
Alternatively you could also put a control below the graph that lets me drag it down and make the Y axis usable again.
Thanks for your submission. We are aware of this issue and will hopefully be able to get a fix in order soon. Our proposed fix at the moment is to add the Custom Event as a separate chart in a way that will allow the Y-axis to be preserved for both charts.
