Find Related Elements from Metric Viewers

If you want to extend your analysis by looking at other Metrics and Reports that contain the information that may be relevant to the element being viewed, there are various sections to help you. All of these relationships are input into the grids on the Editor > Associations tab.

  1. See Related:  This drop-down list contains other elements that contain common or similar information. This contains basically the same elements and links as the Day Detail section of the Summary section on right-hand side of Chart.
  2. Linked Reports: Allows you to associate this Metric with any other Element your users might find useful for deeper analysis. This is the "Elements for Further Analysis" grid in the Editor
  3. Related elements by Measurement Interval: Allows you to associate other elements based on their Measurement Interval. These elements display in the Measurement Interval drop box.

Selecting links to other elements, one by one, allows you to open and explore other elements and analyze trends to gain more insight into the results.
