In the digital analytics world, you only get value from your analytics implementation when you use your data to make improvements to your digital properties. While a lot of effort goes into implementing, you should really be spending the majority of your time conducting analysis. This analysis often happens in reports and dashboards within your digital analytics tool.
The Apollo analytics management system provides a unified way to manage all aspects of your digital analytics implementation. One component of this is the ability to create a full set of dashboards once your analytics implementation has been deployed. By default, Apollo creates two dashboards: Learn About Your Implementation and Business Requirements.
The former provides your users with information about what is contained within your implementation and provides a way to view reports by the various site features in your implementation and the latter shows reports for each business requirement you have implemented. These two dashboards are an easy way to dive into your data and begin your analysis work.
However, if you have a large digital analytics implementation, these dashboards can be quite intimidating! There may be times when you want to view data for just a subset of your implementation business requirements. To facilitate this, Apollo has a new feature called Custom Dashboards.
Custom Dashboards allow you to select specific business requirements from your implementation and build a dashboard just for those requirements. There are many potential use cases for this functionality:
Build a dashboard for a set of requirements related to a specific topic
Build a dashboard of high priority business requirements
Build a dashboard that includes only requirements for a particular stakeholder
Anytime you want to build a bespoke dashboard, you can use this new custom dashboard feature.
