The Insight and its controls

An example of an Insight based on the "Segment Over Time" type:

X and Y axis
  • The X axis shows the date
  • The Y axis shows the number of profiles in the segment on that date
 

Configuration

Segment (required)
The segment for which you want to see how many profiles it contained over time.
Interval (optional)
  • Daily: The time period will be divided into days. For example, if the time period is "Last month", the graph will be divided into 30 days. The start value for each day is 0.
  • Weekly: The time period will be divided into weeks. For example, if the time period is "Last Quarter", the graph will be divided into 12 weeks. The start value for each week is 0.
  • Monthly: The time period will be divided into months. For example, if the time period is "Last Year", the graph will be divided into 12 months. The start value for each month is 0.
  • Cumulative (Period): Shows the cumulative total for the entire selected time period beginning with the first day. The start value for the period is 0.
  • Cumulative (Overall): Shows the cumulative total for the entire selected time period beginning with the first day. The start value for the period is the cumulative total up to the beginning the selected time period.
Target (optional)
Set the target for the increase in profiles per time interval for the selected segment. If selected, the target will appear as a red line on the graph.

 

The insight takes the time period setting of the dashboard into account. This is indicated by the clock icon in the top left. When a time period has been selected for the dashboard the graph changes to display the segment data for the selected time period.

When a time period has been selected for the dashboard and the "Compare with previous" option has been activated, two lines are drawn to indicate the difference between the segment data of the current period (blue line) compared to the number of new profiles of the previous period (green line).

 

The Segment over Time Insight is a standard plugin.
