The filtering options at the top of the dashboard allow you to narrow data and usage reports by time frame, discipline, position, and organization. You may also isolate data from specific profiles.
Saving Shortcuts: As you configure dashboard views, use the shortcut button to the right of the date range menu to save frequently used views. Find your saved views in the Shortcuts menu.
Modify the Date Range
Select a specific date range using the menu at the top right of the dashboard. Widgets and reports adjust to reflect the dates shown.
Past 30 Days: A 30-day snapshot including today’s date.
Last Month: The previous calendar month.
Past 90 Days: The maximum amount of time for which daily results are returned in usage reports.
All Time: Monthly data going back to the earliest activity on your institution’s profiles. (Note: most statistics on the Explore Readership tab have data available from December 2014. Applicable dates display at the bottom of each widget.)
Custom Monthly Range: Allows you to select a custom range of available dates containing statistics for your institution’s profiles. The date range is inclusive, so to run a report on a single month, select the same month for the start date and end date.
The options for the past 30 days, past month, and past 90 days show daily counts. Anything prior to 90 days is aggregated by month.
Filter by Discipline, Position, or Organization
Click the Filters button to expand it and choose from a list of disciplines, positions, and organizations applicable to the currently selected content.
Click Apply to add those filters. A label will appear at the top of the dashboard for each filter that is currently applied. To remove a filter, click the “x” next to the label.
If you select multiple values under any one heading, such as multiple disciplines, the filter performs an OR operation and will show all matching profiles (e.g., checking Biology and Literature will show all profiles that match either discipline). Combining values from different headings has an AND result. For instance, if you select Faculty Member for the position along with the Biology discipline, you’ll see data for biology faculty profiles.
View Data for a Specific Profile
Use the Profile menu at the top of the dashboard to highlight data for an individual SelectedWorks profile. Simply choose from the list or start typing in the search box to narrow the works to locate a particular author’s profile. Selecting a profile will focus the dashboard components on the statistics for that profile.
Select “All Profiles” at the top of the menu to return to viewing data for your all of your institution’s SelectedWorks content.
Statistics for individual profiles are also accessible via the Profiles table on the SW Profile Reports tab.
