You can create multiple dashboards in Air360 to analyze a wide array of website data. Each Air360 Member can create their own set of dashboards to best suit their needs.
To see how to add charts, modify or delete a dashboard, check our article here.
Now let's look at the elements of a dashboard. We'll start in the upper right corner.
- The date range selector allows you to select which time range for which you want your data to display on the dashboard. You can change this at any time. The date range is not meant to be something permanent, but more like something you play with to track data over different time periods. Keep this in mind: All widgets in the dashboard show data within this date range.
- The middle button is for Notes. Notes are a convenient way to keep track of information regarding your data and how it was affected by outside events. For example, on July 8th 2018, you sent an email campaign resulting in a traffic spike that day. It's easy for you to remember now, but in 2 years, it will not be fresh in your mind anymore. The Notes feature allows you to insert a note to remind you of events that influenced the data. Last but not least: Notes is super useful for keeping your team on the same page. All your other team members will have access to this information when looking at the dashboard for the same period.
- The Add a new chart button does what it says... It adds a new chart 😃
Let's add our first chart!
When adding a new chart, you will have the choice of several charts you can add to Air360 as shown below.
Let's add a Web traffic sources chart.
For every widget you add, you will be taken to a step where you can make a configuration for the specific chart you have chosen, like the type of event triggered. This can always be changed later, or even modified directly in the dashboard as you will see later below.
For this chart configuration, we want to pick this event: Add to cart button so that the chart shows only users that have triggered this event during this time period.
Click on Group by domains if you want to split the data by source.
You can always Preview the chart by clicking on the Preview button on the right.
Now, to add this chart to your dashboard just click on the blue center button Add this to the dashboard, and this window will be displayed:
Name the chart - let's call it Web traffic sources - and pick the dashboard you want this chart to appear in.
When the chart is added to your dashboard, you can see the user segment on the top right of the chart as shown below.
The user segment selector allows you to change the user segment that will be used for this data. When reloading your dashboard, it will always revert to the default user segment (Everyone in this case).
If you want to make any changes to your charts, just click on the menu:
That will take you to the edit view for the chart.
