Timebox all the things!

I’m super excited to announce that we’ve implemented timeboxing on all of our available charts and widgets! This means that you can set specific date ranges on the…

  • line widget
  • scatter plot
  • total display widget
  • donut chart
  • top 5 widget

Setting it up is really quick and easy:

 

I’m sure I don’t really need to explain why this is so powerful, but I’m going to give you some examples anyways!

Example 1

You: a marketing manager at a small/medium-sized company

The problem: you need to know the total views and average engagement of the video on a landing page for the 5 days after you launched an email campaign to drive traffic there.

The solution: a donut chart showing average engagement and a line chart showing the number of views each day. Instead of having to download a CSV and do the calculations and charting manually, you can create both widgets, with timeboxing, for your landing page video, in about a minute.

Example 2

You: the owner of a small video agency

The problem: you need to report on the performance of two recently-released lead-gen videos every week for one of your clients.

The solution: two line graphs showing views over the past 7 days, two donut charts showing average engagement over the past 7 days, two total display widgets showing emails collected over the past 7 days. Each day you just need to take a minute to update the start and end dates on each widget’s timebox, and you’ll immediately know how each video is performing. Every week, after updating the timeboxes, you can copy the metrics or screenshot the charts and place them into your report before sending it off to your client.

Example 3

You: a marketing director at a medium/large-sized company

The problem: you have a drip campaign that uses multiple videos throughout the campaign and you want to compare views and email signups month to month.

The solution: two line graphs using a collection of each of your drip campaign videos showing views from the 1st of each month to the present day number and two total display widgets using the same collection showing email signups from the 1st of each month to the present day number. Each morning you adjust the end dates on each widget to the day before, allowing you to compare each metric month to month and see how your drip campaign is performing.


When you start using timeboxing, let me know how you’re using it in your own reporting! There are so many ways to use timeboxing to give you exactly the information you need. It’s a powerful feature and we’re very proud to finally introduce it!
