Everyone can explore metrics freely
Inspect is a view for everyone to freely explore a metric. It reflects the way a metric is defined.
Every metric has three main visualization charts; line, bar, and rank chart. There’s nothing to set up. It just comes with every metric automatically.
Go to any metric. Pick ‘Line chart’ in the chart selector at the top right of your screen.
Line charts present data as a time series to measure change over time. Click or tap anywhere on the line to see the exact value.
Go to any metric. Pick ‘Bar chart’ in the chart selector at the top right of your screen.
Bar charts present data as a time series to measure change over time. Click or tap on any bar to see the exact value.
Go to any metric. Pick ‘Rank’ in the chart selector in the top right of your screen.
Rank charts present a vertical dimension breakdown, a top list of your dimension. Next to each bar, you find values and percentages.
Rank is available for metrics with one or more dimensions. Learn how to set up dimensions on Define metrics
Use the time controls to find the time frame you want to explore. Quickly zoom out to a year or zoom in on a week. Use the time stepper to step back and explore data from the past.
|Line and bar graph|
|Week||last 6 days rolling|
|Month||last 30 days rolling|
|Quarter||last 3 month rolling|
|6 month||last 6 month rolling|
|YTD||Jan 1st this year – yesterday|
|Year||last 365 days rolling|
|Week||this week, Monday until today|
|Month||this month, MTD|
|Quarter||this quarter until today|
|Year||this year, YTD|
Dimensions provide breakdowns of your metric. You can use them to deep dive into a metric by, for example, markets, customer segments, or product categories.
You find the dimensions in the control panel next to the graph.
By picking a dimension, for example, market, you automatically get a breakdown of the top markets matching the current time frame.
Click and pin
You can choose which specific dimension values, for example, markets, you want to view by clicking or pinning in the dimension control panel next to the graph.
Click on a market to highlight that specific one in the graph. One market at a time can be clicked.
Pin a market to isolate that specific one. Hover on a market and a pin will show up to the right, click the pin icon to activate. Pinning hides all other markets from the chart. You may pin as many markets as you like, but only the first pinned ones will show up in the chart and be listed in the legend. However, the big number will always reflect the total sum of all pinned markets.
Pin and click can be combined. Pin to isolate a selection of markets and click to highlight one of them.
You can compare dimension breakdowns, for example, markets, the same way as you can compare a metric.
You can compare one market at a time for a line chart, while you may compare several markets when toggling on a comparison in combination with the bar chart.
Rank chart lists a dimension breakdown by size. The first metric dimension will automatically be shown, to switch to another dimension go to the control panel next to the graph.
Set up dimensions
Dimensions are only available when predefined for a metric. Learn how to set up dimensions on Define metrics
Toggle on targets to see how your metrics perform against your budget or forecast.
You find targets in the control panel next to the graph.
Targets are only available when predefined for a metric. Learn how to set up targets on Targets
Compare your metric to
- last week
- last month
- last year
- 7-day average
- 28-day average
Overlay any two metrics with just a click to easily see correlations and trends. Just expand the Compare to section and select a metric to get started. It works great with both bar graphs and line graphs. Finding patterns across your metrics has never been easier.
No need for a specific setup, all metrics and slices are ready to be compared out of the box.
Slices are like sub-metrics. A way to quickly jump to a zoomed-in picture, while keeping the same source of truth.
You find slices on top of your screen, next to your metric name in inspect mode.
Slices are only available when predefined for a metric. Learn how to set up slices on Define metrics
You can use slices for certain markets, channels, or product categories. Let’s say you have a metric for payment value, using slices you can define a slice for the markets Nordics, Netherlands and UK but also add a slice for a new product category you just launched.
To get a quick overview of your metrics, you can add them as Widgets on the Dashboard. You can customize widgets in many ways,
- Line graph, bar graph, milestone, big number
- Time grain, daily or weekly
