Whether you are starting a report from scratch or using a report template, the Zencity Report Builder allows for complete flexibility to customize the elements of your report. In this article, we'll walk through the organic data that is available to you and how to incorporate it into your report.
Click the "+ Add Data" button at the top left of the Report Builder to expand the "Add Data" sidebar, and select "Organic" to proceed.
Filters: "Global" vs. "Specific"
At the top of the "Organic" sidebar, you'll notice a "Filters" button with a number indication. This number represents the amount of filters that are defined for your organic data. The number increases with each additional filter that you set, as a reminder of the selections applied.
Click on the "Filters" button to expand the full list of filters and make your selections. If you started your report from the organic dashboard or from within a specific organic project, the filters will automatically be preset to the filters that were applied.
These are "Global" filters, meaning all new widgets that you add to the report going forward will use these filters by default. Changes made here will not apply to widgets that were already added to the report.
You may want different widgets in your report to represent different data. In other words, let's say you want to set unique filtering rules for a specific widget. Simply add the widget to your report and then click into it. A list of filters will open up for the specific widget.
The filters applied here will not apply to any other widgets on the report, and will not affect the "global" filter selections.
"Show filters on widget"
After setting "global" or "specific" widgets, you have the option to toggle on or off "Show filters on widget."
Toggle this option on if you want the filters to display at the bottom of the widget, like this:
