Settings and filters for Explore the stats

You can select Settings and filters to view Page settings on the right side of an Explore the stats page in Workplace Analytics. You can use these settings to change the date range, the way to group time investors (a grouping of employees that is used in queries), and the filter for active, inactive, or all employees.

  • For a week that starts in one month and ends in the following month, the data is associated with the month in which the week begins.

    • Active only - Includes only active employees who have sent at least one email or instant message for the set date range.
    • Inactive only - Includes only those inactive employess who have not sent at least one email or instant message for the set date range.
  5. Select Add filter to add one or more additional filters.

To change the number of groups

You can change Max groups by increments of five groups each way. The minimum setting is 10 and the maximum is 100.

Time investors

This section is only available for applicable Explore the stats, such as External collaboration. Time investors are the people in your company who have been assigned a Workplace Analytics license.

By default, Time investors are grouped by organization, but you can also group them by domain, engagement, or other options. The settings you select in the this section only apply to time investors.

Collaborators

This section is only available for applicable Explore the stats, such as External collaboration. You can use the Collaborators section to group users by Collaborators, which are people with whom time investors have had an interaction. If you group by Collaborators, the settings you select only apply to Collaborators. Currently, the Collaborators section supports grouping by domain only.

Note

Currently, you cannot apply the Collaborators filter for the External network size, External network breadth, and bubble charts in the Network section. However, it does apply to all the other charts on the page.
