Creating a custom timeline section

Which data sources are recommended for timeline charts?

Any data source which contains time-based information can be used to create a timeline chart. The following is a list of data sources that we recommend to use for informative charts:

·Office 365 Audit Data

·Office 365 Mobiles Devices

·Detailed Message Statistics

·Azure AD Users

·SharePoint Site Usage


Here is a diagram of the required fields for a timeline report:


9.Choose your event title, event description and event date fields. Use the diagram above to help you decide which field to select in each location.

10.Optionally, select your Event category field and any fields you would like to show in detail view.

11.Decide how you would like your timeline to look.

a.You can group your timeline by day, month or year.

b.You can view your timeline as either standard or micro.

i.Standard view presents a record in its entirety, but may not be suitable for large data sets.

ii.Micro view presents all records, but individual data sets must be hovered to be revealed.

12. Add filters if required.

13. Add an offset and/or a limit.

Individual records should now look like this:


Custom timeline example: OneDrive operations

You create a section on a report that shows OneDrive operations, color-coded per operation.  Here is how the finished report section looks:



Here are the steps to create this report section:


Here is a video running through these steps.


Creating a custom map section

Using the Map report allows you to see who has logged audit data within Nova. Has there been activity in a location which is unfamiliar to your organization? The map allows you to see if there is suspicious activity occurring in locations which your company is not associated with.


Each circle is representative of audit data being logged in that specific location, which can be viewed down to street level. The shade of the circle represents the amount of logs performed at that location.

To add the map report:

9.Add a title and description if necessary.

10.For the data source, choose Office 365 Audit Data.

11.Select your organization and organization group if necessary.

12.For select field, select Geo Location.

13.Save and close the section.

Creating a custom metric section

Using the metric report in the Report Center is a quick way to see:

·If you are reaching goals or targets that you want to reach. For example, emails being sent internally.

·If there are issues within your environment that may need investigation. For example, incoming spam email.

The gauge helps you see if you are reaching your target or limit, thus giving you insight into whether you are on course for a goal, or if you need to take action for your limits.


NOTE:  Your data sources need to be a numerical value. If you are looking for a report with information about departments, locations, license names, etc., select another report type. Check out this Report Center article for more information

9.Click Gauge.

10. Select your operator and Applied to data field.

11. Add a filter group, if applicable.

12. Select your minimum and maximum ranges. For example, you can set the maximum number to an acceptable limit of spam mail being received.

13.Reverse the colors of the metric if desired.

Once you have finished, click save and close the section.

Custom metric example: How many Teams meetings did we have in the last 30 days?

This metric sections is helpful if your organization hopes to have a certain number of Teams meetings within the month. To see a gauge related to the status of your target:




Custom metric example: How many spam emails are we receiving?

Perhaps you are looking to get a clear metric on how many spam emails are coming in to your tenant, with a limit on what is acceptable. This metric gives a clear image on whether this limit is being reached. To create it:



Creating a custom card section

Nova has a section type called ‘Card'. Using this feature you can include simple sum, count, maximum, minimum or average values which might add useful additional information to your reports.

For example you could show the total count of mailboxes in an organization, or the number of users in a tenant, or the total size of all mailboxes in an organization.

In this section, we will see an example of how this can be done.


9.Select an operator and an Applied to data field.

10. Add a filter group, if applicable. For example, you may want to know how many Azure Active Directory users have their ‘country or reigon' parameters set to the United States.

11. Optionally, you can set analytics to 'color code' your card section. More on analytics is below.

Click save, and close the section.



·The reports take a period of time to update to real time; this is usually between 24 to 48 hours. For more on this, click here.

·You can add up to 6 cards in a report.


The analytics tool is a quick way to see if a statistic in your environment is not as it should regularly be.

For example, you may want to immediately know the amount of spam mail coming into your tenant. You can select an operator relating to the value you want to input, for example you can have:

·greater than

·less than

·equal to

·is not equal to

then input a number. We can then apply the severity of the issue to the number applied. These include:





Custom card example: Teams private message count (7 days)

For example, you may want to keep an eye on the amount of Teams chats your users are sending if your environment has just adopted the Teams platform. You may also want to set a target for what you may deem acceptable. This can be achieved with the following steps:
