Workbench

When working with data you are now able to more easily compare and contrast by using the new Workbench functionality. The workbench is available across all your registered products.

You can add data to your workbench by either using using the 'Add to workbench' item in the Menu link within each data view or using the new Advanced Query functionality described in the next section.

Once data is added to the workbench you can work actively with the data. Adding the data to the list of visualized items, removing them again and generally using the workbench as a scratchpad for keeping you data while digging in to issues or preparing custom visualization of data for reporting purposes. The data items are still fully interactive and you can export the data, view the chart data in grids and toggle visualizations of the individual items to fit your needs.

Advanced Queries

This update has brought you even more query and filter possibilities. You'll still be able to use the already familiar filters such as e.g. the InstallationID, Release and Country- filters but now you can dive deeper into your data with Advanced Queries. These advanced queries are available on a number of data views and can be found in the Menu link to the far right.

Accessing the Advanced Query dialog will allow you to retrieve data for the given data view using a much more complex filter setup. The Advanced Query dialog will allow you to include the following new filters when requesting data:

  • Product Filter. Allowing you to include all data, also the data that has been ignored using the default product filter
  • Usage Count Filter. Since all sessions are numbered within EQATEC Analytics, you are able to specify that you only want data from session that e.g. was the first session from users or only data from sessions where the user have started the application more than 20 times. This filter will allow you to segment your users and discover changing usage patterns from new to experienced users
  • Feature Use Filter. Just as you can filter on data collected such as versions and country, you can now filter on the data you have collected your self. You can specify that you only want data from sessions that have used a particular feature by making use of the data you are already tracking. Use this filter to discover changing behavior or correlations between certain feature patterns.
  • Feature Timing. You can also use your tracked timing to segment your data. Want to look at the data from users with a slow startup time? With the feature timing filter you can filter on any timing you have integrated into your application tracking. Dive into the correlations between slow startup times and the memory installed or find out if quick report processing also means more reports being generated
  • Feature Value Filter. Similar to filtering on timing aspects you can also filter on the discrete values you have tracked. Using this filter you are able to use your own values as filtering parameters to find out correlations between these values and the data collected

These new filters, along with the existing filters, are presented in a new Advanced Query dialog:

Once you have specified the specific filter you want, you can press 'Add to Workbench' and the data will begin being processed. You can continue working, defining new advanced queries or navigating around the application while the data is being processed. Once the data has been processed it is presented to you in the Workbench and you can being diving into the data.

We hope you'll enjoy our new features. As always we encourage you to send us feedback on the new features and any other parts of our service.
