Below is an example of the Analytics homepage;
The icons on the left-hand side are menu options for different features within the application, the home icon at the top of the menu will always return you to this page and the grey "Question Mark" icon will display helpful text describing the application features.
Once you begin to create items they will appear here on the home page, items are displayed in the list shown and can be Analyses, Dashboard, or Reports - these are easily distinguishable by the icon on the left of the list and can be opened and viewed by selecting a list item.
From the homepage, you can also delete, share (covered below) and search for created items.
To use Analytics, you must first create and save Analyses, you can then build Dashboards and Reports with them.
In this section you specify the type of data that you want to analyse. Manipulate and query the data and create data visualisations - Think of this section as your own personal work space where you are interrogating data to create tables and charts to use in Dashboards and Reports that you will then share with other users.
The analyses and visualisations you create can be saved, viewed, combined, and even exported - They can also be scheduled for regular production and shared with others.
Navigating to the Analysis module can be achieved by selecting the icon on the side navigation menu as shown above.
Dashboards consist of a collection of visuals (charts, gauges, and tables) these can be placed into dashboard panels and grouped on tabs, to convey useful information and stats, as shown below
Before you can create a dashboard or report, you must first have created analyses via the Analysis tool and added them to the Visual Gallery (adding analyses to the Visual Gallery is covered in the "Adding to Visual Gallery" section in the Analysis guide)
Select "Author Dashboard" to start creating dashboards, as shown.
A Oneserve Analytics report can display an arrangement of components that convey the information you want to see - You can add visuals from the gallery and the charts within them are fully functional; animation, hover highlighting, quick tips etc. work just as they did in an analysis.
Each time the report is run or refreshed in the browser, its visuals will retrieve data from their databases and display it. The report, therefore, is a “snapshot” of the data from the time the report was last refreshed.
Reports you create are automatically saved and will appear in your homepage list
To start creating reports, select "Author Report" from the side menu
