Tourist Guide: Exploring from a chart

Neal Kaplan
This applies tov2.24

You probably noticed that every chart has an Explore link in the lower-right corner.

Clicking that link takes you to the Explorer tab, where you can see the chart in more detail, as well as the query used to build the chart.

On the left, you can see the parameters that are used to build this query. We call this the Query Builder. In this example, the query counts the number of events (“Count Events”) and filters the events to look at new account creation activity. 

You can change these parameters to explore further. Maybe change the time range, or add a filter. For example, are the results of the query different for a particular month?

Remember that you can add filters to limit the data included in the results. This lets you focus on the data that you’re most interested in. If we filter to a specific time range (in this example, September 2016 to February 2017), we can see that there were dips in account creation around the major fall and winter holidays in the United States (in late November and late December). 

What’s next?

Interana’s Living Dashboards are very powerful. Some users will find that they get all the information they need by reviewing and maybe doing just a little exploration from them. But it’s our belief that the best people in digital businesses are inherently curious, which means you’re going to want to write your own queries and make your own dashboards pretty soon.
