Using reports and dashboards in Acquia Lift

Using reports dashboards in Acquia Lift


Acquia Lift provides a group of pre-built reports and visualizations which help you to gain insights about visitors’ behavior and actions on your websites, and optionally across other channels. The reports can be filtered to display data for different websites and different time periods. In certain cases, you can add more filters based on specific event names of interest or other criteria.

Viewing the available reports

To view the reports, click the Analytics tab on any webpage in the Acquia Lift interface.

Acquia Lift includes reports providing an overview of how your visitors interact with your websites, and reports providing a fine-level of detail based on specific attributes of their interactions. By default, Acquia Lift displays the reports each section has. To hide a section’s reports, click the name of the section.

The following reports and visualizations are available for your use:
