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.
