Sharing Account Level Analytics via Web Link/URL

Modified on: Wed, 7 Dec, 2022 at 9:50 PM

You can share the Account Level Analytics 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.

To get started:

1. Click News
2. Click Analytics

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

1. Change the date range of the coverage you are analysing; the date range defaults to the last 30 days. When analysing news on this page, the start date can go back to the beginning of your monitoring. 
IMPORTANT NOTE: This view includes all duplicates as well as Twitter re-tweets.  There is no way to exclude these from this view.  If you want to exclude them from your charts and graphs, follow these instructions to create your analytics.
2. View all Analytics Dashboards that have been created
3. Select the dashboard you prefer to use for reporting
4. Ability to Edit a Dashboard
5. Option to Create New Dashboards

Sharing a Password-Protected URL/Web Link of Analytics:

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 Account Level 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.
