Dashboards and Data Visuals


Dashboards are composed of many visualizations. Create your own dashboards and visuals with filters that meet your needs.

Use the default dashboard or create your own to fit your data reporting needs.

Data Visuals

Create your own data visuals for your dashboards

Steps to create custom data visuals to fit your dashboard needs.

  1. Navigate to Analytics
  2. Click + New Data Visual
  3. Select your visualization type: , , , , ,
  4. Use a filter or leave it blank.
  5. Select the Y-Axis Metrics e.g. total plays, sum of status types, etc.
  6. Select the X-Axis Dimensions e.g. time, device type, OS, locations, etc.

Base visuals to choose from:

  • Line graphs
  • Histogram / Bar chart
  • Pie Charts
  • Donut Charts
  • Metric grid / Cross tabs
  • Metric list

Visualize simulation data with histogram, pie chart, metrics, or line graphs

Filtering Data

Set one or many filters to extract the exact data you are looking for.

Dimensional Data for Visualizations

Easily create multi-dimensional data visuals and add them to your dashboard!

Y-Axis Metrics

Compare and layer your data! Y-Axis metric/s determine how to count the dimension you are measuring.

This example has multiple Y-Axises layered in a doughnut chart to compare the min and max number of choices selected by completion Status type.

Layered doughnut chart comparing the min and max number of choices selected by the finish status.

Doughnut chart comparing the two Y-Axis Metrics Min number of choices (outside layer) and Max number of choices (inside layer) by the X-Axis Dimension Status type within the last 90-days.

Calculating Aggregated Data

Operation Description
Count Counts the number of simulation play attempts
Min Minimum number calculation for a selected field e.g. Min number of choices or errors.
Max Maximum number calculation for a selected field. e.g. Max number of choices or errors.
Average Average calculation for a field e.g. Average amount of time to completion. Average number of errors. Avg. time per question.
Sum Calculates the total number a given field e.g. total number of move, choices, or clicks; total fails or total success

Data Fields for aggregated calculations

Pivot Field Description
Plays Count of all attempts on the simulation. Only works with count.
Moves Choices or clicks by the user
Total Time Total activity time (in seconds)
Total Bonus Total time bonuses earned (in seconds)
Total Penalty Total penalty time earned (in seconds)
Total Credit Bonus Total credit bonuses earned
Title Credit Penalty Total credit penalties earned
Success Plays The user reached a finished node
Fail Plays The user hit a fail node
Timeout Plays The user ran out of time
Creditover Plays The user's credits hit zero (0)
Abort Plays The user closed the browser or tab
Restart Plays The user intentionally restarted the Maze simulation
Unknown Plays The user abandoned the session.

X-Axis Dimensions

Use the X-Axis dimensions to sort and filter the data further.

Sort Dimensions Description
Plays Unique Play session IDs
Maze Title of your maze. This filter is selected automatically if you access the analytics from a specific simulation maze.
Status Filter by completion status (int, inprogress, finish, fail, restart). See definitions below.
Time By Time in Year, Month, Week, Day, Hour
Maze Link Sort by
Device Unique Device ID
Device Type Desktop, Smartphone, Tablet, etc.
OS Device Operating System e.g. Windows, Android, iOS, Ubuntu, Linux, etc.
Browser Browser type e.g. Chrome, IE, Firefox, Safari, etc.
Timezone Timezone set on the user's device. It will give you an idea of the region from where the user is playing the Maze.
User Unique value associated with individual user accounts
IP Unique value associated with individual user accounts

Time granularity

Sort by time increments.

  • Year
  • Month
  • Week
  • Day
  • Hour

Status types

There are several status types when a user is learning. We wanted to fully understand how a user's experience in the simulation.

Status types Description
Int The user clicked the link and the start page loaded, but the user did not click start. The simulation was initialized, but not started.
In-progress The user's started, but has not reached an exit node and there is still a live session. Once the session expires, the status becomes abandoned.
Finish The user reached a finish node.
Fail The user reached a fail node or timed out or ran out of credits.
Timeout The user ran out of time
Creditover The user's credits hit zero (0)
Abort The user closed the browser or tab
Restart The user intentionally restarted the Maze simulation
Unknown The user abandoned the session.
