Through your Dashboard, you have access to a powerful chart to plot your fundraising activity over any specified date range. The chart plots page views, amount donated and the number of transactions. Each plotted point can be grouped by the hour, day, month or year. The chart can also be used to plot real-time activity across all your pages, when the auto-refresh setting is activated and the date range covers today.
The date range above the chart and can be set by changing the start date or the end date. If your browser does not support the date picking tool, dates must be entered in the format: yyyy-mm-dd. When changing either of these dates manually, click the refresh icon on the right to update the chart. The start date should be less than or the same as the end date. If these two dates are identical, the chart will plot activity for a single day, grouped by the hour.
The first drop-down selection box allows you to set some commonly used date ranges. This will also select a suitable grouping; you can override the grouping selection if required. You do not need to click the refresh button when changing the presets.
The second drop-down selection box allows you to set the grouping of each plotted point.
This grouping will show a range of 24 hours on the x-axis. If the date range is set to a single day, the chart will plot activity for that day by the hour. If the date range spans more than a day, the chart will plot the total views,donations and transactions grouped into 24 hours. This is particularly useful to analyse the time of day your supporters are most active on your pages. For example, if you set the date range to cover 2019 (01/01/2019 to 31/12/2019), the chart would display what time of day your pages were most active over the year.
This group will plot the figures for each single day between the specified date range. The start and end date should be at least a day apart for this grouping to display.
This group will plot the figures for each calendar month between the specified date range. To produce accurate information, the start date should always be the first of a calendar month and the end date should be the last day of a calendar month. Example: 01/01/2019 to 30/06/2019 will plot January to June 2019.
This group will plot the figures for each calendar year between the specified date range. To produce accurate information, the start date should always be the 1st January and the end date should be 31st December. Example: 01/01/2017 to 31/12/2019 will plot 2017 to 2019.
Below the chart, the total views, donated and transactions are shown for the specified date range. Notice that this information is not affected by the grouping; these are the totals for the given date range.
