Enabling a Company Home Page

Users can create and populate their own home pages that only they can see. As a product administrator, you can enable a Company Home Page and populate it with customized insights that can be viewed by all UC Analytics users.

If, at a later date, you want to remove the Company Home Page, you can disable it and the icon no longer appears for users to select.

This option is different than granting data access for users. For information about setting data access for users, see Granting users access to data .

2
Click Company Home Page.
3
Select the Enable Company Home Page section check box.
4
Click Save.

Now when you access the UC Analytics web page, the Company home page icon displays on the left.

As a product administrator, you can populate the Company home page with insights from the library, load a set of recommended insights, or import insights from a file.

For more information about adding insights to a home page and customizing insights, see the Unified Communications Analytics User Guide.

Setting insight visibility settings

You can use the insight visibility options to hide certain insights from all or some users, or to allow only certain users to view some insights. You can add rules to hide or show insights for all users in all target environments, or for specific users (or groups of users) in a specific target environment,

Setting insight visibility is different than setting the data access for users. If a user does not have sufficient access to the data in an insight, the insight appears in the library but is greyed out. If an insight is hidden from a user through an insight visibility rule, the insight does not appear in the library for that user at all.

For example, using insight visibility rules, you might decide to hide all Cisco insights from users if Cisco is not used in your environment.

For information about setting data access to control the types of data that a user is allowed to view, see Granting users access to data . For example, you can grant certain users unrestricted access to Exchange detailed information such as details of the individual messages that specific users have sent or received or the details for individual meetings scheduled in Outlook (Exchange meetings).

2
Click Insight Visibility.
3
Click Add visibility rule.
For example, you could click the CISCO heading and Select All to select all the Cisco insights.
For example, to hide all Cisco insights from all users, you would select the Apply rule to all users in all target environments check box.
7
Click Add.
8
Click Save.

You can modify a visibility rule by selecting the rule in the Visibility Settings list, making the changes that you want, and clicking Save.

Configuring and managing subscriptions

What are insight subscriptions?

In addition to viewing insights on the Analytics web site, users can create subscriptions for insights. Subscriptions allow users to automatically export selected insights to a format such as PDF, Microsoft Word (.docx), HTML, MHTML, or to csv (raw or localized), or tsv (raw or localized) formats.

Each subscription is scheduled to automatically send the exported insight to specific email addresses or to a file share, such as a SharePoint folder. You can also create a subscription but set it to disabled so that the schedule is not implemented. For testing, you can set a subscription to Run Now.

Users can create different schedules for each subscription so that the subscription insights are exported and sent on a regular basis.
