Role required:
Admin

In larger organizations, multiple groups contribute content to the site, and for different purposes. The Group Comparison report lets you see and compare how these various groups are performing. This report can also be filtered by date range and contribution type. The reports include visualizations that make it easy to see how different groups—or users within certain groups—compare.

Considerations

  • Depending on query size, data may take up to a minute to load. A spinning wheel indicator will appear until each data component loads and the cancel reload button Cancel reload.png will change to the reload button Reload.png when all components complete loading.
  • Data settling period: The data for the most recent previous day should be considered incomplete and will likely increase (usually by less than 1%) the following day.
  • The report times out after 1 hour of inactivity - refresh browser to reconnect or see 401 error troubleshooting
  • Report labels are not localized on non-English MindTouch sites
  • The report service, powered by Looker, has weekly maintenance hours when reports may be unavailable
    • Sunday and Wednesday: 4am-6am UTC (9pm-11pm Pacific) 

The data for this report has been collected since January 1, 2018 and is current through each previous day due to nightly data processing.
