With Digimind Intelligence you can build platforms that involve many different users, a detailed monitoring system, several different projects and a range of publishing methods. Our statistics will help you keep track of which parts of your CI project is working well, and which parts need your attention.
The key to working well with our statistics is to keep in mind which questions you would like to answer. Your KPIs for your project will certainly help you here. If, for example, one of your KPIs is to increase the number of people who open and read your newsletters, then this will be one of the statistics that you need to consider.
Access to Statistics
For some of the statistics you need to have an adminsitrator or animator login. For others you will be able to access and benefit from the results as a tracker on Digimind Intelligence.
|Type of statistics||Access rights||Useful for|
|administation statistics||administrators only||get statistics on your users (connections, newsletter and projects shared, etc.)|
|statistics module||animators and administrators||investigate the overall performance of your projects|
|publication statistics||animators and administrators||gauge the reactions to your publications and deliverables|
|monitoring agent statistics||trackers, animators and administrators||understand how well your monitoring system is working|
|The Reader statistics||trackers, animators and administrators||see which pieces of information generate most interest|
|Analysis on the dashboard||trackers, animators and administrators||compare agent / folder performance|
Analysis on the Dashboard
Digimind Intelligence has a range of graphs and analysis which can be used to analyse the content of the information you find. To find out how to create a graph or analysis on the dashboard you can read this post.
Some of the analysis you run will work with the contents of the your alerts or stored information. This kind of analysis can be run using a list of queries. This post explains lists of queries in more detail.
You can also run analysis to compare the output of monitoring agents or the amount of information stored in particular folders in your projects. This may help you to understand how these monitoring agents or projects are functioning.
To do this you need to set up a list of agents or folders. Find out more about creating and using lists of agents or folders on this post.
You will then be able to generate graphs and analysis which track the volume of alerts or validated information.
The Reader Filters for Reads, Likes and Comments
The Reader contains a wide range of filters (to find out more about the whole range of filters on the Reader, you can follow this link), including likes, read and comments. These are all contained in the Advanced Filters section:
Using the sort button on the Reader, I can then identify which articles are generating the most interest:
This kind of insights can help me identify the kinds of content that are most appreciated.
Statistics for Monitoring Agents
Digimind Intelligence lets you check the productivity of your monitoring system. This will help you see more clearly which parts are working well, and which parts need to be fine-tuned or perhaps even totally rethought.
On the agents page inside the settings, clicking on the more actions button will reveal a drop-down menu. From here, I can select Statistics.
On the page that opens, use the drop-down menu at the top to select the type of statistics you would like to run:
Then, you may also need to change the date to the time period you would like to investigate (the default setting is for today only).
Select the monitoring agent or agents you would like to analyse and then click on launch the search:
In my example, I can see that 5% or less of th alerts generated are being transformed into stored or validated information:
I can now analyse the situtation based on facts and identify which of the agents need to be reworked, and or allocate more time to processing the alerts Digimind has picked up for me.
Statistics for Publishing
We have a range of automatic publication methods. As a result, there a number of different statistics.
The statistics module for newsletters is an option that we will be able to activate for you.
For it to work you need to be either working with a standard Digimind newsletter template, one you have created from a standard module or a template we created for you that contains the statistics option.
Inside the Newletters page, click on statistics:
This will open the next page, where you will see:
The page opens with the current month shown. Use the date options at the top to focus into a different period.
The excel report will allow you to get more details, including:
- opening, reading and like rates for different dates
- opening, reading and like rates by newsletter
- opening, reading and like rates by recipient
An example of the type of statistics you will find in the excel report is shown below.
Shared Dashboard Statistics
Shared dashboards can be set up either as working environments for your trackers to detect and store useful information, or as consultation dashboards, to which your readers can connect and interact with the information and analysis you have provided for them. In either case, you may be interested in knowing how many connections you are getting, and from whom.
To get to the history o fdashboard connections, open a shared dashboard, click on the actions button in the top right corner, and then select History of dashboard connections.
You will then be able to select the dashboard you would like to consider, and the time period:
This will open a lightbox on which you will see the details, including the name of the tab the user visited:
In addition, you can download this in excel format, by scrolling to the bottom of the lightbox.
Watchlists are a great way of sharing information with your users. Recipients can opt in and out of channels of information, and in this way create a Watchlist that is well-adapted to their needs. To find out more about working with Watchlists you can read this post.
Inside the Watchlist page, you can see the number of subscribers for each channel, and the number of clicks to open the information from the channel.
The statistics module allows you to take a step back and gain an overall appreciation of how your platform is working. You will be able visualize trend lines for the amount of information validated or viewed over a year, or even the number of comments added to information by each user, for example. To access the statistics module of Digimind Intelligence you need to have adminsitrator or animator rights to the platform.
Create a statisctics report
To access the statistics module, open the settings of DI and then click on Statistics. You will then see any existing statistics reports for your base:
To create a new report, click on Add a new statistic report, this will open a window, in which you can name your report:
When you click on OK, you will then be able to select which type of chart you would like to include in the report.
You are able to analyse with a simple trend line, a comparison of two elements and a comparison of more than two elements. The table below lists the details of each possibility.
amount of information created or validated on the whole platform
amount of information created or validated in a particular project
amount of information created or validated manually
amount of information viewed or read
amount of information viewed or read in a particular project
comparison of information viewed and information created or validated
comparison of information created or validated in two projects

Click on one of the three images to create a chart.
Inside each chart generator, you will be able to fix the time period:
If you select current year or current month, the charts will automatically update at the start of the month or year.
Once you have created your statistics report, the best way to see it is on your dashboard.
On a dashboard tab, click to add statistics:
In the portlet that opens, you first need to select the statistic report you have created, and then choose the chart to display:
You will then be able to build your statistics display:
