Thanks for your interest in GrowthBoard! We hope your workflow will become much more efficient now.

Insights Searching

You can reach this window from both - a card, or Dashboard.

Use the field 1 to naturally write what you need.

Or use the field 2 to look up various data sources, metrics, dimensions, segments, and goals (see Available parameters). It does the same thing as first but shows you what options you’ve got.

When using field 2, you can specify a dimension, and then specify its value (when searching for UTM parameters, for example).

When your keywords aren’t clear enough, you may see several metrics showing up. Just scroll down and choose the required one (Show - Attach an Insight/Add to dashboard).

You don’t have to select your data source if you’ve got only one connected. And you should erase default ‘Users’, if you aren’t looking for them.

Available parameters:

1. Data source. A data source is a view in the web analytics tool you’ve connected to earlier.

2. Metric. Metrics are quantitative measurements. The metric Sessions is the total number of sessions. The metric Pages/Session is the average number of pages viewed per session.

3. Dimension/Value. Dimensions are attributes of your data. For example, the dimension City indicates the city, for example, "Paris" or "New York", from which a session originates. The dimension Page indicates the URL of a page that is viewed.

4. Segment. A segment is a subset of your Analytics data. For example, of your entire set of users, one segment might be users from a particular country or city. Another segment might be users who purchase a particular line of products or who visit a specific part of your site.

5. Goal. Goals measure how well your site or app fulfills your target objectives. A goal represents a completed activity, called a conversion, that contributes to the success of your business. Examples of goals include making a purchase (for an ecommerce site), completing a game level (for a mobile gaming app), or submitting a contact information form (for a marketing or lead generation site).
