Insights Reports

The menu of the Insights interface is broken up into 3 main categories

To access a report simply select the report they are looking from this menu.

Report Interaction

Once you have selected a report, you can click on data elements within the graph, i.e. an individual bar within a bar chart. This will drill further into that specific data element to provide greater insight into the data.

When you drill into a data element this will enable the "lock" item (establishing this filter). To go back and clear this filter simply unclick the lock icon.


After selecting a report you will able to apply filters - these are used to help return specific data sets.
