What are they, how do you add them, and what are their options?

Widgets are the items you add to your report, containing statistics, text or images. There are two types of widgets:

  • Widgets: Tables and charts, containing one or more metrics.

  • KPIs: Key performance indicators showing a single metric (total).

Add widgets

To add a widget to your report, when you've just created a new report, click on "+" button.

If you already have widgets in your report, you can use the + buttons which you can find next to KPIs when hovering over them, or at the right side of the report.

A popup will show where all of our integrations are listed amongst the data sources already connected to your client.

If you want to use any of the already available data sources, click on that. If you want to add a new one to the report, scroll down and click on the data provider you want to add a data source for.

Another page will show up, where you need to choose the specific data source.

Once you've done that, click "save data source" and a list of predefined widgets will show up. 

Predefined vs Basic widgets

When adding widgets you have the ability to choose from our list of predefined widgets, which already have a specific visualization, metrics, and dimensions selected. However, it's also possible to start a widget from scratch.

When selecting a basic widget, select the name you feel is most fit for your goal. For example: if you want to report on Ads and there's an Ads performance widget, it's best to use that one.

Widget settings

After selecting the widget you want to add, a popup will open with the following settings to customize your widget:

  • Data Source: Select the data source you want to use for your widget. 

  • Date Range: Select a date range to use for the widget from predefined options and enable/disable comparison for the widget.

  • Presentation: Change the title and visualization of the widget.

  • Dimensions & Metrics: Choose the dimensions and metrics shown in the widget, how many rows should be shown, and how the widget should be sorted.

  • Filter: Add filters to the widget to show more specific statistics. Click here to read more about filtering.

Once you're done setting up the widget, click the Save settings button to save the widget, and see the result.
