Dashboards and Panels

Note: This feature is currently only available in the context of OneContact Data Studio Early Adopters Program.

Dashboards are the core to the Datastudio experience. They are an information managing tool that visually tracks, analyzes and displays key information to the users. 

Dashboards can be composed of different panels, each tracking different types of information.

To change a 00:00:00 field to an int format, where a column contains "count" in its name:

  • add an override with "name matching regex": ".* Count"
  • add override property: Unit: Number

 

Query Editor

In the bottom of the screen you can run queries. Queries are the anchors that tie back to your data source, retrieving the data to be visualized. 

Querry

To run a query:

  • First select the Metrics from the drop-down menu
  • Select a breakdown from the drop-down menu to display metrics from different perspectives (agents, services, time)

breakdowns

  • Select a service and the filtering options for it
  • Select the ordering you desire for the results (upward or downward). 

You can press  datastudio_plus.png to add more variables to your query. 

Press Query options to configure the maximum number of data points you need. Click here to learn more about the options available.
