Visualizing Content Cleanup Results

Visualizing Content Cleanup Activities

By creating visualizations and displaying them as dashboards in the Visualizer, teams can present progress and results of content cleanup activities to stakeholders. Dashboards can be created from scratch in the Visualizer. Alternatively, dashboards that come standard with Cognitive Suite can be cloned and modified to communicate your desired outcomes. 

Modifying Dashboards

Modify dashboards to maximize the effectiveness of your results presentation to stakeholders. Dashboards can be modified by adding, editing, or deleting visualizations.  

Adding Visualizations

To add a visualization to a dashboard:

  1. From Dashboard, click Edit

  2. Click Add

  3. Either:

    1. Select a visualization from the list OR

    2. Click Add new Visualization

      1. Select the desired visualization type

      2. Select the index the new visualization will apply to OR

      3. Select the Saved Searches Filter to be used for the visualization

      4. From Data, add Metrics and/or Buckets, if desired

        1. Metrics add aggregation to the data within the visualization

        2. Buckets enable splits that further refine the visualization

      5. Click Apply Changes (the play button icon) to preview added metrics and/or buckets

      6. When satisfied with the visualization, click Save
