Tips of the week !

Every week, Datama publishes a tip or a trick on how to best take advantage of the software

Tip of the Week 111: New Products page

A new page is available on the Datama Home page 😀

By going to “My Account” and then “Products” in the left-hand menu, you will arrive on the page with all the integrations in the data visualization tools like Tableau, Power BI and Looker Studio 📊

Here you will find the following information:

Tip of the Week 110: Give your feedback

In Datama, you can give your feedback on a problem you have encountered or a potential improvement you have identified 💡

A “Feedback” banner is accessible by hovering your mouse over the right-hand side of the screen at half-height, or by clicking in the “Help”>”Feedback” menu. 📝

We’ll receive the message immediately, along with all the technical details needed to reproduce your environment and, if you like, a screenshot!

Tip of the Week 109: Display the exit in Journey

Would you like the answer to the question “How many sessions have left the site?” 🤔

Datama has created the option that allows you to have the answer in Journey, by activating “Display exits” in the settings ⚙️

This allows you to display the “output” of journeys on the sunburst ☀️, so you can hover your mouse over it and get the share of volume (in %) exiting your journeys for a given path.

Tip of the Week 108: Reverse sunburst

In Journey you can change the reading of your sunburst ☀️. By going to the options, you can tick “Reverse sunburst” 🔄️ , reversing the reading direction from external to the center of the sunburst.

This allows you to pose the problem in reverse by no longer answering the question “What does the user do after reaching a milestone?”, but elucidating “What led users to reach this milestone?” 😎

Tip of the Week 107: Display Main KPI trend

If you use Datama Detect 📈 to detect anomalies, you may have noticed some new features in the interface or in the email exports:

  1. Datama now shows the trend of the main KPI in dotted lines on the graphs, so you can see whether the variation in this indicator really influences your overall performance.
  2. In the event of an anomaly, a quantified overview of the impact on the main KPI is displayed, allowing you to quickly understand in what proportion a variation in a sub-indicator affects your main indicator. 🤓

These features are enabled by default. You can deactivate them in the ⚙️ settings by unchecking “Compute Main KPI impact” and/or clicking on the “f” icon in the top right-hand corner to remove them from the main chart.

Tip of the Week 106: Customise your decision tree

In Datama Compare, you can customise your decision tree 🌳 according to your needs, for example by highlighting the variation in % instead of the impact in value to simplify the discussion with the business 😉

You can make these adjustments by going to the parameter menu ⚙️ and then to the “Label” section:

Tip of the Week 105: Find the segments that explain the variation in a KPI

A question that often comes up is: which segments drive change among all the dimensions? 🕵️‍♀️ Change can be explained by several segments. It would therefore be interesting to have a ranking of these segments according to their impact on the KPI.

In DataMa Compare, thanks to the “Decision Tree” 🌳 that you will find on the first slide, it is possible to right-click to change the exploration method, which is by default in “hierarchical” order, to “Top X” drivers. The X can be selected from 1 to 50 😉

Useful when you want to find the Top 3, 5 or 10 segments that explain the variation 🤓

Tip of the Week 104: Change Waterfall colors for a specific workbook

When you carry out an analysis where a downward variation is seen as positive (e.g. analysis of purchasing costs), it is then possible to change the colours of the workbook in question to show increases in red 🔴 and decreases in green 🟩.

Go to Settings ➡️ Workbook Style ➡️ select Colors palet=custom ➡️ then define each of your colours for the Waterfall 🎨

Tip of the Week 103: New block Join in Datama Prep

A new block has appeared in Datama Prep: the ‘Join’ block, which lets you simply perform a join between two sources 🥳

Very simple to use, it will be configured in two steps:

  1. Choose the type of join you want to perform (Inner, Outer, Left, Right, Cross Join) 🔗
  2. Define the dimension(s) that will be used as join keys for each of the sources and apply 😉

Tip of the Week 102: Pivot Check All steps

The Datama team wishes you a happy new year 2024 🎉 Datama Pivot now lets you analyse all your KPIs at once! The “Check All steps” functionality is available as an option in the Datama Pivot menu:

Tip of the Week 101: New Clustering Tree in Pivot

The clustering tree is now available in the new interface on Datama Pivot, with improved visualisation 🌲->🎄 It helps you create clusters within your dataset across multiple dimensions using a “regression tree machine learning” algorithm 🚀

Tip of the Week 💯: Datama Prep Export

Want to easily export your favorite Datama graphs to your preferred channels? 🚀 You can automate exports from any Datama solution to Slack, email, or as a URL, directly in Datama Prep ⚡ Clicking on the corresponding bubble opens settings, where you can customize your export by frequency, time, and more ⚙️

Tip of the Week 99: Download your Prep data in Excel format

Want to check the data source you’ve created or imported into Datama Prep? ️🕵️ Here’s how to do it in two simple steps:

  1. Go to the Prep tab of the Use Case you are interested in
  2. Click on the Excel logo at the top right of the table 🖱️

Tip of the Week 98: Duplicate your source blocks in Datama Prep

🔥New this week: the “Duplicate this bloc” function is now available in Prep! Here’s how it works:

  1. Select the Source Block you want to duplicate.
  2. Click on the Three Small Dots “…” located on the Source Block.
  3. Choose “Duplicate this block” 📚: With one click, create an exact copy of your block, with all the parameters already configured.

✨ Why is this handy? Imagine: you have a GA4 block configured for last month. With duplication, easily create a version for last year. Time saving and efficiency guaranteed! Take advantage now and boost your productivity with Prep! 😉

Tip of the Week 97: Attach links to documentation to your workbooks

In Datama, you can add a link 🔗 pointing to internal documentation linked to your workbook (for example a Wiki page, a Readme, a Notion page, or a Gslide presentation presenting the use case). There are two ways of doing this:

Tip of the Week 96: Slideshow mode integrated into Datama

By clicking on the “Start presentation” icon in the top right-hand corner (or by using the keyboard shortcut Ctrl+F5 ⌨️), you enter slideshow mode, which allows you to display any slide in Datama full-screen, just as you do in PowerPoint. You can then present the different graphs by navigating from one page to another while continuing to interact normally with the solution 😉

Tip of the Week 95: New methods for Anomaly Detection

Datama Detect now offers you new methods for spotting anomalies in your data:

  1. Methods based on estimated confidence interval
    • Forecast (only available in “Analyse latest point only”)
    • Observed volatilty (method by default)
  2. Methods based on manually configured thresholds (the new ones 🥳)
    • Relative variation threshold: for example, if the threshold is set at 50% then any relative variation in excess of 50% will be considered an anomaly.
    • Absolute variation threshold: using the previous example, here we are not defining a percentage threshold but a fixed value (2k) and any absolute variation in excess of this value (-2.1k) will be considered an anomaly.
    • Absolute value threshold: for example, if the threshold is set at 50k and the baseline value is 40k, if the value considered is 60k, this will be considered an anomaly.

Tip of the Week 94: Merging Secondary Comparison

Last week we talked about secondary comparison. If you’re in the overlay mode when you do a Secondary Comparison, there are two types of visualisation:

Tip of the Week 93: New Secondary Comparison displays

You may be using secondary comparisons in Datama Compare - for example, to compare the variation of one country against another. Datama then displays 2 waterfalls: by default the display is superimposed with the first comparison in the foreground and the second in the background. Now you can change the display by separating the second comparison into a new Waterfall, which will appear either on the right or below. To access this, right-click on a block of the Waterfall, then Secondary Comparison and finally the display option you want from “Right”, “Above” or “Overlay” 😉

Tip of the Week 92: Datama Compare Tree Chart

Have you seen the tree chart view in Datama Compare? 🌳 By clicking on the Tree chart button in the top-right corner of your standard waterfall graph, you can visualize your data in a new way, showing the impact of all your dimensions at a glance 👀 Right click on a box to explore top contributing segments across all dimensions and change other settings 🔧 (in particular the exploration mode which, by switching to “Top X” mode, allows you to view the largest contributing segments across all dimensions)

Tip of the Week 91: Piano Analytics Connector

To prepare your data in Datama, you can plug in your data source and transform it in Datama Prep. Many connectors were already available, such as GA4, Facebook Ads, Bigquery… and now a new connector has joined them: Piano Analytics 🤩

Tip of the Week 90: Exploring in Compare from Pivot

In Datama Pivot, when you are on the “Importance Chart” graph, you can look to see what opportunities there are for optimising a KPI 🤔 This is now possible by right-clicking on one of the bubbles in the graph and selecting “Compare this”, you can easily switch to Datama Compare to explain the over-/under-performance of a given segment compared to others 🤩

Tip of the Week 89: User preferences

You already had the option of customising your preferences at workbook level to choose the language or colour scheme to apply to the graphics.🎨 Now, although this option is still available at workbook level, you can define the settings at user level, from Home. Select ‘User Preferences’ and the configuration will apply to all new workbooks you create. 😉

Tip of the Week 88: CTRL + F Search shortcut

A search shortcut has been introduced on all Datama pages by pressing CTRL + F. When you do a search 🔍 the results will be divided into the following sections:

Tip of the Week 87: New workbook view on the HomePage

A new view of your workbooks is available on the Datama Home page. By clicking on the list icon at the top right, you can switch from a “Grid” view with the workbooks in the form of a map to a “Detailed” view in the synthetic form of a table Your choice of view will be saved for future sessions 😉

Tip of the Week 86: Send exports only when there are alerts

You can set up your Slack or Mail exports so that they are only sent when there is an alert. To do this, click on the export button, select the export you want to modify, then activate the “Send on Alert only” toggle and save the export 😉

Tip of the Week 85: Redesign of the Settings menu

The new version of the settings menu is now available in Datama. To access it, click on the “Settings” button in the top bar. The new structure is as follows:

  1. “Solutions Model”: this groups together all the parameters specific to the solution (Compare, Detect, Journey, etc.)
  2. “Workbook Style” allows you to modify parameters which are global to the workbook whatever the solution, such as the colour palette 🎨, the language or the display characteristics of the numbers
  3. And finally you will find your market equation in the “KPIs & Market equation” menu.

Tip of the Week 84: A new version of Waterfall available

A new version of Waterfall is available as an experimental version 🧪, how it works is explained in this short youtube video where you’ll discover the new capabilities of the famous Datama waterfall, which can now be transformed into a decision tree to further simplify the explanation of variations to your customers, while comments are generated automatically. To activate it you need to access the Waterfall settings and, at the top right of the window that appears, activate the “New Waterfall” toggle. If this button is not available, contact Datama to be granted the experimental role 🥼 to discover the new features in advance 😉

Tip of the week #83: Smart Dimension

In Datama Compare’s Waterfall, when you zoom in on a step you can see the variation in each segment of a dimension. But it can be interesting to focus on a combination of dimensions, so Datama offers you the Smart Dimension 🤓: which will, for each stage of the Waterfall, identify the pair of dimensions most relevant to explain the variation in performance. For example: Consider the scenario in which your performance is entirely explained by a drop in performance on mobile users with the Firefox browser. By enabling the Smart Dimension option, Datama Compare will identify the Device*Browser dimension as the most relevant dimension 🎯. However, if the Smart Dimension option is not enabled, Datama Compare will attribute the performance variation to the Device or Browser dimension. NB: there is a Combined Dimension which overlaps not 2 dimensions but all the dimensions available in the dataset. Tip 83

Tip of the week #82: Looker Studio extension “Save in Datama”

Datama is available on Looker Studio as an extension, if you’re not using it yet and you’re interested here is the link to the documentation to add it to your Dashboard and don’t hesitate to contact Datama Customer Services to get the licence key associated with your account 😉 You can now have your Use Case in both Looker Studio and Datama thanks to the “Save in Datama” option 💾 which you’ll find in the three little dots at the top right of the extension. This option will allow you to customise your Waterfall with all the parameters available in Datama in order to improve the visualisation in LookerStudio, you will be able to change, for example:

Tip of the week #81: Drill Down by Dimensions then Steps

Until now, Datama Compare analysed variation first by steps in the market equation, then by dimension within a step. You can now decide to reverse this pattern and breakdown the total variation by the segment with the greatest impact in any dimension, then by step within each segment. To activate this option, go to Settings, then choose one of the following three options:

Tip of the week #80: Compact Numbers

Here’s a little trick to lighten the visual of your graphs when you have large numbers. Go to “Settings” and select the “Compact Numbers” option to transform the labels into thousands, millions or more in increments of a thousand 😉 For example:

Tip of the week #79: Personalising the performance indication of a Waterfall segment

By default, Datama displays after the name of a segment its relative variation compared to the average variation (e.g. organic (x2.43)). You now have the option of modifying this additional text in the “Settings” by one of these three options:

Tip of the week #78: Comparison Table in Datama Journey

While performing a user journey analysis in Datama Journey, discover our new feature: The interactive table 😎 By hovering your mouse over the different stages of the Sunburst, this table will allow you to :

Tip of the week #77: Filtering with REGEXPs

In a dimension when you have many segments, it is time consuming to select/deselect the segments you want to filter, nevertheless you have the possibility in the “advance settings” to filter with a REGEXP (Regular Expression) to save time 😉 Here are some use cases:

Tip of the week #76: Dimension Helper

Do you know the “Dimension Helper”? 🤔 This will allow you to see in a synthetic way the value (in line) and the distribution (in bar) of the KPIs of your market equation on the segments of a dimension 🤩 To open it, just go to the “Filters” tab in the top bar, you will then be able to :

Tip of the week #75: Display waterfall in points

In Datama Compare, you can now display your waterfall in points (%) instead of the volume view of the total KPIs 🤩 To switch between the two views, simply right-click on the blue total bars and select “% Display impact in points” 😉 Tip 75

Tip of the week #74: Comparison date range available in Datama’s LookerStudio extension

Datama continues to improve its extensions in the visualisation tools. In Looker Studio you can now enable the “comparison date range” feature to compare B (the period you select in the filter) vs A (the comparison period you select in the dropdown menu: previous period, previous year,…), which will make it more dynamic to use 😃 Tip 74

Tip of the week #73: Secondary Comparison available in the Table

In Datama Compare you have the possibility to compare one variation with another variation, this is what is offered with the “Secondary Comparison”. This is useful when you compare for example one period to another and want to highlight this comparison with what happened in the same periods the year before. The last release added the “Secondary Comparison” to the Table, now when you activate it a line will be added under each segment corresponding to the variation on this second comparison 😉 Tip 73

Tip of the week #72: CSV Skip Raw

Small improvement in Datama Prep, now you have an option to skip a certain number of lines in your CSV. For example, if you have a title when you export the CSV, no need to delete the first few lines of the file before importing it into Datama, you can select the number of lines to skip 😉 Tip 72

Tip of the week #71:

On the new version of Datama in the Compare solution, the table available in the second slide under the Waterfall has been improved 🥳

Tip of the week #70

You may have noticed that in the new version of Datama,the “Impact” solution no longer appears. It has been split into two separate solutions “Assess” and “Detect” in order to meet two needs:

Tip of the week #68

In the new version of Datama, the old left-hand menu, where the filters were defined, is now in the top bar. By clicking on the “filters” button, all filterable dimensions existing in your dataset will appear. The “Helper” 📊 is a graphical aid to see the distribution of the elements of your dimension on one of the steps. The applied filters will appear in the top bar next to the “Filter” button. You can then edit a filter by clicking on it or delete it by clicking on the small bin 😉 Tip 68

Tip of the week #67

In the new version of Datama, Flow Prep is an integral part of your use case. Therefore, you can navigate from it thanks to the left side bar to the solution(s) (Compare, Detect, Pivot …) you want to use. Moreover, a favorite icon ⭐, allows you to define the solution you want to open by default from the Home Page 😉 Tip 67

Tip of the week #66

With the new version of Datama comes a new Home 😃 In addition to the existing features, you can now:

Tip of the week #65

When comparing two segments in the case of an AB test or when comparing two time periods, you can ask yourself the question: is the variation significant? :pensif: In Datama, all you have to do is activate the “Significance test” toggle in Settings, then you can choose

Tip of the week #64

In case you have some of your data that is “non-comparable” in your Datama Compare analysis (e.g. closing a market), but you still want it to appear separately in your Waterfall, to compare your KPIs only on comparable things (🍎 to 🍎):

Tip of the week #63

To facilitate the communication and sharing about augmented analysis, Datama is deploying a new Data Visualisation solution:

Tip of the week #60

As in many countries, last weekend we switched to winter time ⌚ To avoid confusion in the schedulers on Datama (e.g. for Datama Prep, statics exports or by mail), the time displayed is the time in UTC +0, so it’s independent of your time zone. PS : stay informed of the latest information thanks to the notifications on the home page 😉 Tip 60

Tip of the week #59

Whether you’re on Compare, Pivot or Impact, you’ve probably seen a segment named “Other (<2% of the total)” which aggregates all the smaller segments into one to lighten the visualization and interpretation of results. Nevertheless, you can adjust this setting by going to “Settings” → “Aggregation in %”, you can then:

Tip of the week #58

Do you know the dynamic filter on the Waterfall? After zooming in on a step, right click on one of the displayed segments and select either :

Tip of the week #57

In Datama Compare, if you want to zoom in on several steps at the same time, you can force the open step to remain visually open on the selected dimension, either:

Tip of the week #56

In your waterfall, if you want to visualize the variations more finely, you can shift the Y axis so it doesn’t start at 0, for that you just need 3 clicks: Go to “Settings” → then “Display Options” → disable the toggle: “Y Axis Include 0” and press “Enter” 😉 Tip 56

Tip of the week #51

Little tip for Datama users, in Datama Compare when you want to do a breakdown of a Waterfall step, Datama will by default make you a split by the dimension with the highest “interest score”. However, you can choose a breakdown by another dimension by right-clicking on the step you choose and clicking “split by…” and you will see the available dimensions appear with the associated “interest score”. Higher is the latter, more relevant the variations of the segments will be. Tip 51

Tip of the week #14

In the new features released during the containment, we find the functionality: Export graph as public URL :bar_chart:

All graphs from Datama solutions can now be exported to your Tableau, Data Studio dashboards… or to your web browser!

This allows you to enrich your usual reporting with Datama charts:

The data in this new widget is constantly updated with the data loaded into Datama.

Note: This feature is enabled on demand, contact us if you want to enable this feature.

Tip of the week #13

When you want to use Datama, you often wonder about the data… 💻

How do I connect my data into Datama? How do I get my data (and therefore my charts) updated as I go? One of the solutions…is Google spreadsheet! 💡

You can also use other extensions such as “OWOX BI BigQuery” for your BigQuery queries or the “Supermetrics” add-on for connection to all other applications on the market!

🆕 New header has been released on the platform !

Not only it makes admin functions (new data source, export etc) easier and more intuitive to access, but it also adds some cool features:

Happy to have your feedbacks while testing it!

Note: this new header replaces the “Admin” menu that used to be at bottom left of the page

Tip of the week #11

In these troubled times 😷, you have some of your data that is “non-comparable” in your Datama Compare analysis (like a distribution channel… that no longer exists 😕!), but you still want it to appear separately in your Waterfall, to only compare your KPIs on comparable things (🍎 to 🍎)?

➢ Create a ‘Scope’ column with ‘In’ for what you want to keep or ‘Out’ for what you want to exclude

➢ Datama will automatically exclude the “Out” from the analysis and make it appear in a separate block of the waterfall, in light blue “Out of Scope”

See a concrete example ici !

Prepared with ❤️ from home, we think of you and accompany you on all your subjects from a distance!

Tip of the week #10

When using Datama COMPARE to compare two time periods. You can set up the solution so that your analyses in Datama are always up-to-date with your latest data. 🏃♀️

All you need to do is:

  1. Load a new source (“Change source” menu) via a “Google Sheet”.
  2. Then select the option “Keep Live connection with Gsheet”.
  3. Once the analysis is in place, you must save the use case by leaving the option “Dynamic saving of Start & End” selected. Be careful that the dates used as Start and End exist in the dataset!
  4. From the interval used for Start and End (1st week compared to the 4th week of the dataset for example), Datama will reproduce this same interval according to the last existing data…

Once your data updates itself, all you have to do is set up a regular send to your mailbox or a Slack channel and you’re done!

Tip of the week #9

To speed up your analysis we have accelerated the loading of your data. 🚀

In Datama, you can now:

Datama recognizes the source directly and offers you to launch the analysis directly!

Tip of the week #8

You can now use Datama as a Tableau extension ➕ !

You drag and drop the extension provided by Datama into your Tableau dashboard, and you access from Datama the data viewed in a Tableau worksheet.

Not only is your data up-to-date with what you already have in Tableau, but your filters and other actions in Tableau are then active in Datama! 🔄

Tip of the week #5

You can easily filter your analyses in Datama on a part of your source dataset.

Tip of the week #4

As you know, in order to explain your overall performance variation, Datama independently analyses for each stage each of your dimensions to bring up those that best explain the variation in that stage. But the tool also analyses combinations of dimensions. Either all dimensions combined together (Combined Dimensions) or all pairs of dimensions (Smart Dimension). 👨🔬

Tip of the week #3

In all Datama solutions, you have the possibility to group together elements of a dimension that represents almost nothing on your performance. 🧐

Useful especially when your data has dimensions with hundreds of different values.

Tip of the week #2

In Datama Compare and Impact, you can preview the definition of “Start” and “End” using “Overview chart”

Useful in particular if you are not sure of what you want to compare!
