Using reports and dashboards in Profile Manager

Using reports dashboards in Profile Manager

Analytics tab

Profile Manager provides a set of pre-built reports and visualizations that allow you to gain insights about visitors’ behavior and actions on your websites, and optionally across other channels. These reports can be filtered to display data for different customer websites and different time periods. In certain cases, you can add additional filters based on specific event names of interest or other criteria.

Viewing the available reports

To view these reports, click the Analytics tab on any webpage in the Profile Manager interface.

Profile Manager includes both reports that provide an overview of how your visitors are interacting with your websites, and reports that provide a fine-level of detail based on specific attributes of their interactions. By default, Profile Manager displays the reports that each section contains. To hide a section’s reports, click the name of the section.

The following reports and visualizations are available for your use:

Overview report

  • Operational dashboard – Displays dashboard-style summaries that consolidate reports and visualizations into a single at-a-glance view

Detailed reports

  • Content – Contains reports displaying content-related data, such as number of views of a certain content type

  • Events – Contains reports displaying data related to the frequency of unique events on your website or other channels
