Sharing an Analytics View via URL (Web Link)

Modified on: Mon, 5 Dec, 2022 at 10:49 PM

Once you have gathered a specific set of coverage as a result of Searching and clicked the Analyse button, you will have the option to share the charts dashboard via a password-protected URL. When you share the charts using this method, recipients can click on the URL and open the Analytics Dashboard in a browser window where they can take advantage of the interactive capabilities of the charts. Recipients do not need access to the Cision Communications Cloud to view the charts.

Select the Coverage:

1. You can select articles individually by clicking the individual checkboxes located to the left of those news items you want to include in the analysis. To select all articles, click the checkbox above the result set.

2. Click the Analysis button in the top right corner of the screen

The Analytics Dashboards with related options will appear. In the upper right-hand corner, you will see the ability to:

1. View all Analytics Dashboards that have been created

Analytics Dashboard Choices

2. Select the dashboard you prefer to use when sharing the coverage visually

3. Ability to Edit a Dashboard

4. Option to Create New Dashboards

Once you select an existing dashboard to share or create one, click the Share button in the upper left-hand corner.

1. Select Web as the way you want to share the dashboard.

2. Create a password for the dashboard. Be sure to share this password with others when you give them the URL.

3. Click the Generate button to create a URL for the dashboard.  Notice that you can turn on a toggle in this section if you want your web link to receive updated data over time. Please be aware that this option is best suited for analysis associated with a future date or no End Date so that additional coverage is shown in the charts each time the link is accessed. It is also important to note that charts will always start with the original Start Date of the analysis and continue to show additional coverage each time the link is accessed.

4. Click Copy to copy the URL.  You can then paste it into the email or document you plan to share.

5. Click Close.

Example of a Password-Protected URL Dashboard Share:

An Analytics Dashboard shared as a password-protected URL gives recipients without access to Cision a visual, interactive representation of the coverage. Recipients can roll over data points and see their value or click into data points to see why they have resulted.
