About Journey Chart Widgets
The journey chart widget displays data in a single line, where each data point represents a moment in the customer journey that you defined in your Journeys page. This widget is useful if you would like to easily visualize your respondents’ experiences across multiple touchpoints.
Attention: Before you can use this feature, you need to make sure you’ve done the following:
- Enabled the Manage Journeys and Use Journeys permissions, or asked your brand administrator to enable them for you.
- Defined your journey on the Journeys page.
- Configured your dashboard with your journey data.
Without first completing the above steps, you will not be able to set up your journey chart widget properly.
Field Type Compatibility
The journey chart widget requires two field types: Text Set and Number Set.
The metric or outcome must be configured as the Number Set field type. This field will correspond to the metric you defined in your journey and the outcomes / metric you configured in your dashboard settings.
In the Journey section, you’ll have the option to select any of the journeys you’ve defined on the Journeys page. This journey, as well as the journey stages you’ve set, must first be properly configured with the stages in your dashboard sources. Each journey stage will appear as a point in the line graph.
You will need to define your Stage Dimension as the stage Text Set metric you configured in your dashboard settings.
When setting up your journeys widget, you will need to define a metric. In the Metric dropdown menu, you can determine what type of information is displayed in the labels on the colorful areas of the journey chart widget:
- Count: The number of responses for a selected field.
- Average: The average value for a selected field.
- Minimum: The minimum value for a selected field.
- Maximum: The maximum value for a selected field.
- Sum: The sum of all values for a selected field.
- Net Promoter Score: Identify the Detractors, Passives, and Promoters from NPS questions.
- Correlation: Select two journey fields to determine their correlation. The result will be given as a correlation coefficient, which is represented as a number from -1 to +. -1 is the strongest possible negative correlation, and +1 is the strongest possible positive correlation.
- Top Box/Bottom Box: Top box is the percentage of respondents who fit into the highest ends of the scale. Bottom box is the percentage of respondents who fit into the lowest ends of the scale.
After your metric and field have been configured, you can customize additional metric options in the Options menu.
The following are the available metric formats:
- Number: Display your selected field as a numeric value.
- Percent: Display your selected field as a percentage.
- Currency: Display your selected field as a currency value. The currency symbol will default to $, but you can also type in your own symbol.
With each metric option you can specify the number of decimal places, between zero and three.
Enter values in the Min and Max boxes found in the Value Ranges section to determine the values associated with your journey. In addition to the minimum and maximum values, you can set up to nine intermediate values. For each value, set the color that you would like each stage to be when the metric is less than or equal to that value.
Journey Stage Filters
Let’s say you’ve loaded your journey stage dimension and outcomes into your journey chart, and you want to be able to filter this data for easier viewing. There are two ways to accomplish this in your dashboard.
You will have the option to filter your dashboard page by clicking on the widget directly. Navigate to the Journey Chart Widget options, and select whether you would like to apply a filter to the dashboard when you click a value in the Journey Chart Widget. If you choose to add a page filter, the filter that will be created will correspond to the stage you selected. To remove the filter, simply click the selected stage again.
You can also filter by journey stage at the page level. When adding a page filter, select Stage.
Once you’ve selected Stage, you’ll be presented with additional options in the Stage filter dropdown. Click the option under the Stage heading, and you will have the ability to select a specific journey stage to filter by.
Below is a list of common error messages you may see in the journey chart widget and how to resolve them.
