Add explorers

Members with the required privileges can use the Analytics section of the Coveo Administration Console navigation menu to create custom usage analytics data explorers. As a member of one of these groups, you can create and use custom explorers to focus only on the UA data that you need, or you can use the pre-configured explorers to focus on specific analytics data aspects:

Starting from any pre-configured explorer or from a nearly empty explorer, you can add or remove filters, metrics, and dimensions, and then save the modifications as a new custom explorer (see Dimensions and Metrics). Custom explorers can be modified or removed at any time.

Add a usage analytics explorer

  1. On the Reports (platform-ca | platform-eu | platform-au) page, do one of the following:

    • Click Add, and then select Explorer from template or Blank explorer.


      Save time by selecting the explorer template that already contains most of the filters, dimensions, and metrics you want to review.

    • Click one of the pre-configured explorers or any explorer you want to copy, and then click Duplicate in the Action bar.

  2. If you select Explorer from template, in the Select a Template panel, click one of the available templates, and then click Select.

    • Activity

    • Content Gaps

    • Relevance

  3. In the upper-left corner of the explorer:

    1. Enter a title for the explorer.

    2. (Optional) Enter an explorer description.

  4. Click Save in the upper-right corner.

    The report is now available on the Reports (platform-ca | platform-eu | platform-au) page.


By default, you have access to all custom explorers. Custom Explorers can be shared to specific users or saved for your own personal use (see Manage the access to the explorer).
