Variants Table (Insight)

BlueConic dialogues offer different ways to converse with your customers and visitors. Creating dialogue variants lets you further customize the conversation and test content variations. In the Variants Table insight, you can see the results of these optimized dialogues and compare performance for views, clicks, direct conversions, and how your variants performed.

The Variants Table Insight and its controls

To create an insight, select Insights from the BlueConic menu, create or select a dashboard, choose Add insight, and search for 'Variants Table.' Select Configure this insight or select the configuration icon (cog wheel) to set up the insight, choosing which dialogues to measure and which metrics to display in the insight's table columns.

Here's an example Variants Table insight showing dialogue names with distribution percentages and a range of marketing metrics, including views, clicks, and direct conversions, as well as unique and total counts, indirect conversions, and dozens of ratios and lift ratios.

Note about unique metrics

Unique metrics were introduced in R63 (mid-March 2019). BlueConic dashboards can be set to display metrics for a certain time period (days, months, quarters, all time, etc.). Depending on the time period measured on your dashboard, the unique metrics will show "All time" counts for unique metrics until the dashboard's time period can be tallied post-R63. See Metrics for views, clicks, and conversions for details on the timing of these unique metrics.
