Viewing the My Insights home page

When you first access the Analytics web site, you have three options:

On the My Insights home page, if you hover over the right side of a tile, the actions icon is displayed. Click the icon to show the options that are available. If you select Enlarge tile, the tile shows scrolling summary data from the insight.

The larger tile displays the summary information for an insight. The data in the tile rotates through key information contained in the insight. Each time a tile finishes cycling through the data, it begins again using the cached data. Data is cached for 10 minutes before it is automatically updated.

You access the insight library at any time by clicking the library icon on the left border. Use the library to select the insights to be added to your home page.

The insight library lists all the insights that are available. If your user account does not have access to certain types of data, insights that contain that data will appear to be dimmed.

TIP: If you do not have access to a certain insight (dimmed) and you want to know what type of access you need to see the insight, click the Launch Default button for the insight. A message is displayed that indicates what type of data access is required to view data in the insight.

For information about how to grant a user access to different types of data, see the section titled “Granting users access to data” in the UC Analytics Deployment Guide.

Icons are used to identify the types of information provided by each insight.

You can use the library search option to quickly find the types of insights that you want.

For example, you could enter Lync in the Search field to display only insights that contain Lync information. If you want to see only the insights that contain detailed information, you could enter “details” as the search criteria.

Once you have located the insight that you want, you can either add the insight to the My Insights home page, or launch the insight to preview it. Once an insight is added to the My Insights home page (or to any other home page that you have created) you can customize it by inserting columns or adding filters. When you launch an insight from the library, the default version of the insight is always displayed.

If you have used MessageStats, you will notice that the library contains insights that seem the same as some of the MessageStats insights. These insights are tagged as being MessageStats insights.

If you want to display all the insights that contain the same data as MessageStats insights, type MessageStats in the library search field. All the MessageStats insights will be listed.

You can use the Search Library option on the library page to find insights for that contain specific types of data.

The following examples show how you could search for insights by platform or by granularity of data:

For example, you could create a new page and title it Inventory. You could then either add inventory insights from the library, import insights from an insights file, or select insights on an existing page and move them to populate the Inventory page.

Use the tabs at the top of each insights page to display the individual pages on your home page.
