  • Select “Analytics” (left navigation)
  • Select ‘Filters’ and input desired timeframe
  • Select ‘Run’ to update the charts

Understanding Detailed Analytics*:

  • The total number of new videos posted within the filtered timeframe
  • Video views of all Video Players, including the Right-Rail
  • Overall daily video viewcounts  by comparison
  •  Estimated Ad Impressions
  •  A list of the top ten distribution outlets
  • A list of the top ten most-viewed videos in order of view count

Dashboard vs. Downloadable Reports:

    • Time Zone: The Dashboard is in PST, whereas the Downloadable Reports are in UTC. An update to the Dashboard will allow you to select the reporting time zone.
    • Frequency of Updates: The Dashboard is updated every hour, whereas Downloadable Reports are updated once per day (at 5pm PST). Therefore, if downloading a report through the present day, please wait until after 5pm PST to do so.
