This article provides information about templates and predefined dashboards.
Insights Templates enable you to generate predefined dashboards, such as Total Events Count or Total Visits Count, on demand.
How it works
A template consists of a dataset, an analysis, and a dashboard. A dataset is a collection of data in a database to be displayed in a dashboard. An analysis specifies the database fields and the charts and graphs displayed in the dashboard.
For example, the following dashboard example displays graphs of total visits per day, total visits per quarter, total visits for the entire time period, browsers used during visits, and total event counts per visit:
Templates for predefined dashboards
The templates for the following predefined dashboards are based on predefined attributes from DataAccess (AudienceDB or EventDB):
Total Events Count
Displays information about event counts over time, event types, and the most frequently visited pages.
Total Visits Count
Displays information about visits, total events count per visit, visit duration.
Total Visitors Count
Displays information about visitors and visitor activity.
The data displayed in the events count, visits count, and visitors count dashboards is refreshed once a day, at night.
The templates listed on the Templates page may have one of the following labels:
Generated – The dashboard has been generated and can be viewed on the dashboards page. For example:
Update available – A new version of the template is available for a generated dashboard.
If a template has no label, the dashboard has not been generated.
When updates are available for one or more templates, the following message is displayed on the Dashboards page:
Update a template
When a new version is available for a template, use the following steps to update the template:
Click View Updates in the message on the Dashboards page.
You can also go to the Templates page.
For the template you want to update, click View Details.
Click Update Dashboard.
In the Confirm Update dialog, click Update.
The default dataset for the dashboard will also be updated, which will affect other dashboards and analyses that use this dataset. The default analysis will not be changed.
Save and publish is not required after updating templates.
