Filters and Reports

Filters help you define the scope of the data you would like to include in a report - you can select specific Challenges and choose whether to include data with certain characteristics (eg from set Stages, with certain Categories or key words) depending on your needs.

Building the report allows you to select the individual data points you would like to include.

Create a New Filter

  1. Go to the Report Centre
  2. Either select Filters then Create New Filter or Create New Filter when building your report.
  3. The filters use the Boolean operators AND and OR.

    AND is used when you want all data to meet all criteria you have selected (eg Must be from Challenge X with category Y - will only return data that meets this criteria). This will return a narrower set of results.

    OR is used when you want data to meet any of the criteria you have selected (eg Can be from Challenge X or have category Y or both). This tends to return a broader set of results.

    You can also combine AND and OR when some criteria must be met but you want to include other data with any number of the characteristics you have selected.

  4. Choose the scope of your report (narrow down to the Challenges, Challenges with certain Active Stages, Challenges with certain Categories or Communities you'd like the data about).
  5. Choose the Data to include (Ideas with certain categories or keywords, Ideas with certain activities on a specific date, Ideas in specific stages or Ideas with specific statuses).
  6. Add a name for your filter
  7. Add a description for your filter
  8. Save Filter Configuration
