The Insights page
The Insights page provides you with a number of charts that assist you in tracking the performance and effectiveness of tests and batches that teams execute on your account. Reviewing the charts allows managers to identify ongoing trends or risks. The scope of data that you can view is role based. Account admins can view data at the account and team level. Users that do not have admin rights can only view data that relates to the teams for which they are a member.
You generate the charts by specifying the value for two settings, the Scope and the Date Range. The Scope determines if data is taken with respect to the entire account or one or more teams that are assigned to your account, while the Date Range sets the time frame boundaries for which the Insights data is collected.
You access this page by using the Insights menu entry.

Setting the Date Range
Applying a date range to the Insights page affects the charts and analytics that the Insights page displays in two ways. First, the period of time over which you sample the tests to produce the charts is increased or decreased to match the date range. Second, based on period of time that you select, Eyes adjusts the number of segments that it displays in the resulting charts so as to clearly present the data. The exact number of time segments that are used varies according to type of information presented in a specific chart.
You can select a date range from several preset date ranges or set a custom date range.
The preset date ranges include the following options:
- Last 7 days
- Last 30 days
- Lost 90 days
When you select a Custom date range Eyes opens a standard date picker calendar from which you can select a Start date and End date.
To set a custom date range:
- Click the Date Range drop-down list in the Insights toolbar.
- Click one of the preset date range options to use one of the commonly used date ranges.
- Click Custom date range to use the calendar to set the date range.
- Select a date from the calendar on the left for the start date and select a date from the calendar on the right for the end date.
- Click Apply to update the data on the charts to match your selections.
