Choose the scope of your analysis (sites and periods) in the toolbar at the top of the screen.
The first drop-down menu lets you select a site, several sites, or a level 2 site.
The search function integrated in the drop-down list (1) lets you quickly access the sites you wish to use.
To select a site, click on its name (2). To select several sites, tick the corresponding boxes (2), then click “OK”.
A summary of your selection is available via the link at the bottom of the drop-down menu (3).
On the summary screen, you can view the list of selected sites, edit your selection by deleting one or several sites (1), reset your selection (2), or return to the list of all sites (3). You’ll need to reselect at least one site for data to appear.
If you wish to focus your analyses on level 2 sites, once you’ve selected the corresponding level 1 site (1), and then select the site you wish to examine (2).
If you no longer wish to take these level 2 sites into account in your analysis, go back to the “Sites” list, then select the level 1 site you wish to work on.
Good to know:
- By default, the site used will be the site you specified when customising your Analyzer interface.
- You may not select more than 100 sites in multi-site analysis.
The second menu (1) lets you select the period for your analysis.
Using numerous shortcuts, you may select a specific analysis period in just one click, without having to manually configure this period (whether it’s current year, current quarter, current day, etc.) (2).
You may also manually configure the analysis period by indicating a start and end date in the calendar (3).
Remember to click “OK” to save your configuration.
You can compare values from the current period to values from a previous period.
To use this feature, you must tick the “Enable comparisons” option. By default, we’ll compare data from the current period to data from the previous period.
Comparison values will be visible on the line graphs and variables in the “Overview” analyses, on bar graphs (the greyed-out bars), as well as in the tables for all other analyses.
Real time/Current day
You can examine how performance data is evolving for your site or mobile application for the current day. To do this, select the “Today” shortcut (1) in the period selector. Your analyses will be refreshed to account for all of the current day, up until the most recent minute of data available.
Please note that for a more comfortable user experience while navigating in Explorer, data is not automatically refreshed. Should you wish to refresh your data, you’ll need to click the refresh button (2).
Good to know:
- You may not combine data from the current day with data from previous days in the same analysis.
- Only overview analyses allow data from the current day to be combined with data from the previous period.
