Filters

Learn how to use filters in the Leadership Dashboard.

The Leadership Dashboard allows you to filter the data by:

  • State organization

  • Date

  • Page URL

  • Page ID

  • Content type

Here's a breakdown of how filters can be applied in the Leadership Dashboard (Beta).

Primary Filters

Organization and date

First, begin typing your organization in the organization filter. Then select the organization that you would like to see results for. For example, if you begin typing digital, you can select the organization "MA Digital Service."

After selecting the first organization, you can repeat this step to select more organizations.

Then click the blue apply button to apply the organization(s) you have selected in the filter.

You must select an organization before going on to select other filters in the "Show advanced" tab. Also, if you only select one organization by

Date Filter

To pick a date range, click the gray rectangle under the “Time range” label to the right side of the organization filter. A 2-menu dialog box will open. The first of these, “Defaults,” offers 6 preset options ranging from “Last day” to “No filter.”

Most of the dashboard is set to monthly data, so selecting "Last day” or “Last week” may not show complete data.

Currently, filters must be applied separately. For example, if you want to filter by a specific organization for the last 6 months, you’d need to first apply the organization filter, and then apply a date filter.

For best results, first filter by organization, date, and then the advanced filters you want.

Advanced Filters

The advanced filters are hidden by default. If you would like to apply these filters, first click the "Show advanced" tab.

Page URL

The first filter you will see in the "Show advanced" tab is Page URL. Here you can select the URL's within the organization(s) you have chosen. Just like with the organization filter, you can begin typing or select from the drop-down menu (which will only populate with URLs for the selected organizations).

Page URLs are in relative URL form, meaning you'll need to remove the https://www.mass.gov/ from each link.

You can copy list of relative URL's into the field; however, they need to be separated by a comma and no space. For example, for the two URL's in the photo above, you would paste "/content-strategy-services,/decision-tree/choosing-the-correct-content-type-on-massgov"

If you copy in a list of URL's and it returns no results, check to make sure that you have the correct organization for each link.

Remember to hit the "Apply" button to apply the page URL's you have selected.

Page ID

Page ID works much like Page URL. You can select from the dropdown, or copy a list with each ID separated by a comma. Make sure there are no spaces between items. For example, you can paste in "111046,19021" and hit apply.

Content_type

The content_type filter can help you look at all the pages within your organizations of a specific content type. The dropdown may be easier to use since there are fewer than 20 options, but as with the other filters, you can type directly into the field.

Once you have chosen the Content Types you would like to see data for, click the blue "Apply" button.
