Managing Measures

Explore comes pre-bundled with a collection of default measures: Activity Count, Interaction Count, Average Score, and Completion Count. These measures can be useful at giving you a high level view of your data, but we recommend that you create measures unique to your data that allows you to go deeper.

The measure editor enables you to create and manage these additional measures for yourself in an easy to use interface. We recommend that more advanced users create and manage measures to be used by less advanced users in Explore.

This guide explains how to use the Measures interface to manage measures you create. See Measure Settings for details of setting up individual measures.

Creating Measures

  1. Go to the Measures section of the Settings page.
  2. Click the Add Measure button.
  3. Configure the measure as explained in the Measure Settings guide. 


Editing Measure Permissions

Global Admins can control which users can see which Measures. Users with view permissions for a measure are able to see that measure in Explore when they configure reports and, if they are area admin users, are able to edit and delete that measure in Measure Editor. Global Admins have permissions for all measures regardless of settings.

Even if a user does not have view permissions for a measure, they will still see that measure in reports that have been configured to use it. They just don't see the measure in the measure drop down when adding measures to reports. (Measures can also be configured to be visible to 'All parts of your organization').

 Please note: This section describes how to edit which people and groups have permissions for a single measure. To edit all the measure permissions for a single person or group, see the following section.

To edit permissions for an existing Measure:

  1. Go to the Measure section of the Settings page. 
  2. Click Edit next to the Measure whose permissions you need to change. 
  3. Configure the measure as explained in the Measure Settings guide. 

Editing Person or Group Permissions

You can edit which people and groups have access to a measure by editing the measure as described above. You can also manage all of the measure permissions for a group or person using the People & Groups Permissions tab. Select the People & Groups tab and search for a person or group by name.

You can now select which measures the person or group has permission to access. If the person or group has permission to access the measure because a parent group they are in has permission (or if everybody has permission) for that measure, this is indicated by a black tick icon as shown.

Reordering Measures

By default, measures are listed in the order they are created. In the Menu Sequence tab of the Measure section of the Settings page, simply drag and drop the measures to place them in the preferred order, or click alphabetize to sort them in alphabetical order. Keep in mind, when you reorder measures, they'll appear in that order for all users.

To re-order measures in within a category, select that category from the drop-down first. 

Deleting Measures

In the Measure section of the Settings page, click Delete next to any Measure you'd like to delete. This will effect everyone that can see this Measure and the measure will be removed from any reports using it.

Warning: Deleting a measure can't be undone.

Adding Measure Categories

Measures can be kept organized using categories. Measure Categories are displayed as bold headings in the Explore drop down.

To add a category, select the Categories tab and click Add Measure Category.

In the pop up, enter the name of the category and click Add Measure Category. You can now add measures to this category either when you create them or by editing an existing measure.
